Description

The Mad & The Macabre...

Two novellas, previously only available as hardcover limited editions, now joined together into one affordable package!


KUTTER by Jeff Strand.

Charlie Stanlon is a serial killer. A ghastly, vicious sociopath who chains women to a table in his basement and tortures them to death. He has no friends. He has no family. He  despises his co-workers. His only pleasure in life is to cause pain and terror.

Until the day he finds an adorable Boston Terrier and takes it home...


REMAINS by Michael McBride.

On May 21st, 2008, seven graduate students in Religious Studies set out from the University of  Colorado in search of God. Armed with only their faith and the scriptures, they traveled to the western slope of the Rocky Mountains. None of them were ever heard from again.

On November 13th, 2010, their families set off to recreate their final days in hopes of discovering their fate...


"[McBride] displays pitch-perfect pacing and creates interesting, believable characters, resulting in a tale that's gripping and yet at times also philosophical." -- Robert Morrish, Cemetery Dance

"Jeff Strand beautifully crafts a heart-wrenching tale of a man and his dog...and his unquenchable thirst for murder." -- Desmond Reddick, Dread Media

Editions

Trade Paperback: 6 x 9, has a beautiful 12 point full color cover, 60lb. natural vellum stock, and the first 100 copies are signed by the author.


About the authors

Jeff Strand and Michael McBride have written over thirty books, though not together. Their novels include PRESSURE (Jeff), BLOODLETTING (Mike), DWELLER (Jeff), THE INFECTED (Mike), WOLF HUNT (Jeff), GOD’S END (Mike), BENJAMIN’S PARASITE (Jeff), and INNOCENTS LOST (Mike).

Mike likes to write about science and the end of the world, and does a lot of research. Jeff likes to write about psycho killers and flesh-eating monsters, and does significantly less research. Jeff thinks Mike should really be taking better advantage of Facebook as a promotional tool, but the fact that Mike doesn’t waste time on Facebook might help explain why he writes his books at a steady, consistent pace while Jeff freaks out right before the deadline.

Dark Regions Press is proud to announce that the brand new novel Fangtooth by Shaun Jeffrey, author of the novel The Kult is now available for preorder on our website in both our leather-bound signed by both author and artist Deluxe Thirteen Hardcover with slipcase edition and our 100 Signed and Numbered Limited Hardcover edition!

Click here to read more about Fangtooth by Shaun Jeffrey
 
After the death of his wife, Bruce Holden moves to the quaint coastal fishing village of Mulberry with his son, Jack. He is hoping for a fresh start, but the locals greet their arrival with mixed reactions, from friendliness to open hostility. Bruce puts it down to them being outsiders, but when a tourist is killed while swimming, the real horror is unleashed. There's something ravenous in the sea. Something that's coming ashore in search of prey. Now Bruce and Jack find themselves embroiled in a nightmare where humankind is no longer at the top of the food chain.
 
Praise for Shaun Jeffrey:
 
"With Kult, Shaun Jeffrey hits one out of the park with this creepy, character-driven thriller that starts with a jolt, stays in the fast lane, and plunges into the darkest territory of the human mind. It's a bumpy ride through nightmare country." -- Jonathan Maberry, multiple Bram Stoker Award winning author of PATIENT ZERO and PUNISHER: NAKED KILL.
 
"Jeffrey, one of horror's rising young stars, has really hit his stride with THE KULT. Part mystery, part police procedural, part horror story, it's one thrilling ride. Jeffrey had me guessing at the killer's identity half a dozen times, and the reveal, when it finally came, knocked me over. You don't want to miss this one!" --Nate Kenyon, author of THE REACH and THE BONE FACTORY.
 
Praise for Evilution by Shaun Jeffrey:
 
"A classic thriller from a talented new author" -- Guy N. Smith, author of NIGHT OF THE CRABS and THE SLIME BEAST.
 
"Shaun Jeffrey's debut novel is haunting, disturbing and spooky as hell" -- Tim Lebbon, Stoker Award winning author of FACE.


About the author

Shaun Jeffrey was brought up in a house in a cemetery, so it was only natural for his prose to stray towards the dark side when he started writing. He has had three novels published, 'The Kult', 'Deadfall' and 'Evilution', and one collection of short stories, 'Voyeurs of Death'. Among his other writing credits are short stories published in Cemetery Dance, Surreal Magazine, Dark Discoveries and Shadowed Realms. The Kult was optioned for film by Gharial Productions.

Dark Regions Press is proud to announce that the third book in the Raine's Landing series, Midnight's Angels by Tony Richards is now available for preorder on our website in both our leather-bound signed by both author and artist Deluxe Thirteen Hardcover with slipcase edition and our 100 Signed and Numbered Limited Hardcover edition! Midnight's Angels is one of editor/publisher Joe Morey's favorite choices of best novels from Dark Regions Press this year!
 
Click here to read more about Midnight's Angels by Tony Richards!
 

It may look like a perfectly ordinary New England town, a little larger than most. But Raine's Landing, Massachusetts, holds some very dark secrets. The real witches of Salem fled here just before the Trials of 1692, and the place has been full of magic -- the good and the bad kind -- ever since. And a curse hangs over the whole population ... there are so many people because nobody born here can ever leave.
 
Now the Landing is facing its worst peril yet, monstrous flying creatures in the service of an evil older than the Universe itself. They have an unpleasant way of possessing people to their side, and their powers keep on growing until little can withstand them. Most of the major adepts succumb ... there are only two left to defend Raine's Landing. And the town's chief troubleshooter, ex-cop Ross Devries, has an enormous challenge on his hands. He needs to get his former sidekick, Cassie, back into the fight. And if they are to have any slightest chance of winning through, they're going to have to make some very strange new friends, and new alliances to save Raine's Landing, and save the world.
 
 
"A hell of a writer, one of today's masters of dark fiction."
--Mario Guslandi, Horror World
 
"Richards is a master at combining horror, fantasy and humor in a way that will mesmerize readers from cover to cover."
--Rhomylly Forbes, Romantic Times Book Reviews
 
"The rest of us stand on the sidelines with eyes wide open at his audacity and wonder what he'll do next."
--Peter Tennant, Black Static
 
"By weaving this fantasy into a modern setting, Richards creates something unique."
--Clay Bye, Alternative Reads

Dark Regions Press is proud to announce that Multiplex Fandango by Weston Ochse is now available for preorder on our website in both a leather-bound signed by both author and artist Deluxe Lettered Hardcover with slipcase edition and a 200 Signed and Numbered Limited Hardcover edition!  The book comes with an introduction by legendary author Joe R. Lansdale and cover artwork by Bram Stoker award winning artist Vincent Chong!

PREORDER SPECIAL: Order the 200 Signed and Numbered Limited Hardcover while its still in the preorder stage and get it at $5 off the cover price!


Click here to read more about or order Multiplex Fandango by Weston Ochse!


Multiplex Fandango is subtitled "A Weston Ochse Reader" for good reason. This collection contains a comprehensive representation of short fiction and novellas by the Bram Stoker award winner and Pushcart Prize nominee, including his recent powerful Stoker finalist short story, "The Crossing Of Aldo Rey" and his brilliant Stoker finalist novella, Redemption Roadshow, as well as acclaimed favorites, "Catfish Gods" and "Big Rock Candy Mountain". Also included in this omnibus volume of sixteen short stories and novellas are six original new works of short fiction written especially for this collection including such future classics as "Tarzan Doesn't Live Here Anymore", "Low Men Weeping", and the stunning, "City Of Joy".


“Multiplex Fandango. Say it. Multi-plex Fan-dan-go. It's beautiful, isn't it? Just rolls off the tongue. It’s almost as beautiful and satisfying as the book you may now be holding in your hands, or reading a review about. What we’re seeing here is quite possibly the most comfortable, relaxed, and expert takeover that the horror genre has ever seen. With Multiplex Fandango, Weston Ochse has created an incredible collection, and has given the reader one of the smoothest, most satisfying reads they could ever come across. To drive the point home, Joe Landsdale says in the intro that "This is a book that could almost have been written for me.", but I disagree - this book was written for anyone looking for imaginative, intelligent, and thoroughly awe-inspiring, but strangely uplifting scares that force the reader to think more than react." - Paperback Horror


"This is a book that could almost have been written for me."
- Joe R. Lansdale on Multiplex Fandango

"Multiplex Fandango is a smooth mix of the old school pulp horror vibe and new storytelling, elegantly crafted for the modern reader.” - Rain Graves

 “Weston Ochse is to horror what Bradbury is to science fiction -- an artist whose craft, stories and voice are so distinct and mesmerizing that you can't help but be enthralled. Multiplex Fandango is yet another in a long line of exclamation points that reminds us of that fact.” - Dani Kollin

"The truth of the matter is that for all the drive-in movie references, what Weston Ochse has really created in Multiplex Fandango is a travelogue. Acting as narrator and guide, Weston takes you on a trip to places familiar and obscure—New Orleans, the Sonoran desert, Mexico’s Pacific coast, and the dark, impenetrable reaches of the soul. He shows off sights that chill the blood, and as with any good trip, the things seen and experienced along the way will stay with you for a lifetime." - Jeff Mariotte

"Ochse succeeds in creating a complex plot that casts a brutal overwhelming spell."  
- Tom Piccirilli on Scarecrow Gods

"Brilliantly rendered. What was so impressive about the piece was that I did not doubt the incredible heroism of the protagonist... nor his motivation.  
- Andrew Vachss on "Family Man"
 
"This is better than the hype. I don't want to go overboard, but stories in the book will remind many readers of the good stuff by Edward Lee and Joe Lansdale and probably Bill Faulkner.  There were times, reading some of them, when I was put in mind of Flannery O'Connor." - Richard Laymon on Scary Rednecks and Other Inbred Horrors
 
"Vampire Outlaw of the Milky Way is what would happen if Ray Bradbury and Lin Carter got together to write a space opera. Only Weston Ochse could write something like this. In lesser hands, it would fall apart. Weston is one of the best authors of our generation."
- Brian Keene on Vampire Outlaw of the Milky Way

"Make way for a new powerhouse on the block. Hard work and formidable skills have already shot-gunned Ochse to the front of the genre's exciting new pack of writers. With creative brawn, brains, and balls, the guy's locked, loaded, and switched to full-auto, blazing away with his unique and original brand of modern horror, one of the few new writers, I'd say, who will help re-define the field for the future."
- Edward Lee on Weston Ochse

Dark Regions Press is happy to announce that the new novel The Creeping Kelp by William Meikle is now available for preorder in both our leather-bound signed by both author and artist Deluxe Thirteen Hardcover with slipcase edition and 100 Signed and Numbered Limited Hardcover edition!  

PREORDER SPECIAL: Order the 100 Signed and Numbered Limited Hardcover while its still in the preorder stage and get it at $5 off the cover price!


Click here to read more about or order The Creeping Kelp by William Miekle!


Some seaweed, a jellyfish and some material brought back from the Peabodie expedition to Antarctica. An innoccuous enough blend you might think. But when a storm in the North Atlantic frees a sample that has been dormant inside an old wreck, the new creature finds that it is hungry. Our plastics-oriented society has given it an abundant supply of food... more than enough for it to grow, and build, and spread.

Can anyone escape the terror that is... THE CREEPING KELP?


Praise for William Meikle:

Aims for pure entertainment ... and hits the mark.
- Simon Morden, VECTOR

The author is relentless; just when you catch your breath, something new and exciting happens, sending you spinning into another part of the adventure, and keeping you flipping pages to see what's next.
- David Wilbanks, Horrorworld

... solid prose commands attention right from the start and carries the reader straight through to the climax.
- Garrett Peck for Cemetery Dance #40

...descriptions so vivid you can almost hear the clash of the swords and smell the blood.
- Murder and Mayhem Bookclub

Anyone who's fond of a good story and a good piece of writing will enjoy Meikle's clever conceits, interesting and earthy characters, and well turned prose.
- Dread Central

Meikle is a writer that can grace the page with words of beauty whilst twisting a nightmare into grotesque shapes before your eyes.
- Len Maynard and Mick Sims

William Meikle's short stories and novels are shining examples of what is missing in horror fiction today: atmospheric in style, old-school in character, with an intriguing story to be told. Utmost use is made of the author's native Scotland in many of his tales, and his forays into the Cthulhu Mythos stories are original in concept, building on Lovecraft's works.
- David Wynn, Mythos Books


Click here to read more about or order The Creeping Kelp by William Miekle!


About the author

William Meikle is a Scottish writer with over a dozen novels published in the genre press and over 200 short story credits in thirteen countries. He is the author of the ongoing Midnight Eye series among others, and his work appears in a number of professional anthologies. His ebook THE INVASION has been as high as #2 in the Kindle SF charts. He lives in a remote corner of Newfoundland with icebergs, whales and bald eagles for company. In the winters he gets warm vicariously through the lives of others in cyberspace, so please check him out at http://www.williammeikle.com

Dedication:

To the memory of John Wyndham, H P Lovecraft, H G Wells and all the keepers of the flame who have come after them.

Acknowledgements:

With thanks to Steve Price at Generation Next Publications for all the hard work he puts in that's never seen. But it is appreciated.

Coming this Tuesday, June 14th from Dark Regions Press is a new collection of four Lovecraftian novellas, The Engines of Sacrifice by James Chambers:  


Click here to read more about The Engines of Sacrifice by James Chambers!


In hidden places, they sleep and dream, and through their dreams they touch humanity--but their touch brings only the stains of horror, death, and madness...until the day the Old Ones return.
 
In The Engines of Sacrifice, acclaimed writer James Chambers delivers four nightmare novellas inspired by the Mythos of H. P. Lovecraft.
 
Investigation 37: In the late years of the Vietnam War, Lavender May runs away from home to search for freedom and peace in New York City, but instead, she finds only a world of magic, witchcraft, and lies.
 
The Ugly Birds: Only one thing could save Carmine Darabont's comics magazine from going under: publishing the next chapter of the hit series "The Otherworlders." But what dark secret drives its creator--Carmine's ex-fiancé--to refuse to deliver it?
 
The Hidden Room: At the height of the Cold War, Doctor Calvin Lenox is a member of the Nuclear Emergency Search Team. With his life spiraling into despair, he confronts the mystery of a runaway Soviet defector and the death of three men, only to find himself at the mercy of...the Faceless God.
 
The Engines of Sacrifice: What is the power of words? Can they control the fabric of reality? In a horrifying new world, underground author Rowley Cray struggles against a totalitarian government gone insane and the possibility that he can control the souls of the dead.
 
 
Praise for James Chambers:
 
"Chambers is adept at striking the perfect balance of darkness and light...." --Dark Wisdom
 
"...Chambers acknowledges the internal monsters of the psyche. He also adroitly addresses the external evils; those terrors that are kept at bay for the sense of sanity. --Hellnotes
 
"...for those who like their horror straight up and to the point..."
--Horror Fiction Review
 
"Chambers has a skill for evoking the emotions that are needed in the horror field."  --David Agranoff, Postcards from a Dying World
 
 "Chambers writes stories that are paced fast enough to friction burn a reader's eyeballs." --Horror Reader.com

Dark Regions Press is excited to announce that Gathered Dust and Others by W.H. Pugmire is now available in both our leather-bound signed by both author and artist Deluxe Lettered Hardcover with slipcase edition and 100 Signed and Numbered Limited Hardcover edition.

PREORDER SPECIAL: Order the 100 Signed and Numbered Limited Hardcover while its still in the preorder stage and get it at $5 off the cover price!


Click here to learn more about Gathered Dust and Others by W.H. Pugmire!


With his first collection from Dark Regions Press, W. H. Pugmire continues his radical and obsessive reinterpretations of H. P. Lovecraft's brilliant fiction.  Among the book's original pieces is the title story, "Gathered Dust," a sequel to J. Vernon Shea's "The Haunter of the Graveyard."  Set in Arkham, this tale of utter strangeness concerns the legacy of Randolph Carter and a monstrous burying ground where the phantoms of the past linger so as to feed upon the living.  In "Depths of Dreams and Madness" we journey to Pugmire's Sesqua Valley, wherein we find Lovecraft's artist, Richard Upton Pickman and Robert E. Howard's mad poet, Justin Geoffrey, tainted by the valley's supernatural lunacy.  With "These Deities of Rarest Air," Pugmire continues his exploration of the prose-poem/vignette sequence, in a work that deliciously evokes the mystic aura of not only Lovecraft but Clark Ashton Smith as we ll.  With artful decadence and a pen dipped into the  dark fin-de-siècle poetry of Oscar Wilde and Charles Baudelaire, Pugmire celebrates his beloved genre of fantastic fiction with works that only his cracked skull could conceive.  Jeffrey Thomas has provided a provocative Introduction.
 
Pugmire's books include The Tangled Muse (Centipede Press, 2011), Some Unknown Gulf of Night (Arcane Wisdom Press, 2011) and The Strange Dark One--Tales of Nyarlathotep (Miskatonic River Press, 2011).  His second book from Hippocampus Press, Uncommon Places, will be published next year.  He is currently writing a collection of Lovecraftian tales with Jeffrey Thomas, for a book to be published by Dark Regions Press.
 
 
"Wilum Hopfrog Pugmire is the prose-poet of the horror/fantasy field; he may be the best prose-poet we have."  
- S. T. Joshi

"In my opinion, he's the best living writer of Lovecraftiana."
- Toren Atkinson, of the band Darkest of the Hillside Thickets

"Sometimes subtle, sometimes as blunt as a rosewood coffin, Pugmire's stories are always emotional.  Drawing from his own rather bizarre life, it's often difficult to separate the facts from the fiction, even for those who presume to know him."  
- Ken Abner, editor of Terminal Frights
 
"Amazing and vastly underappreciated (but that is quickly changing! !!) Wilum H. Pugmire's unique Lovecraftian fiction has graced the pages of many(! !!) magazines and anthologies. This new release by Pugmire WILL taint the hearts of Lovecraftian fans with all manner of eldritch joys!"
- Joseph S. Pulver, Sr., author of SIN & ashes and Blood Will Have Its Season


Click here to learn more about Gathered Dust and Others by W.H. Pugmire!


About the author

W. H. Pugmire has been writing professionally since 1985. An obsessed H. P. Lovecraft fanatic, his work is most often in the Cthulhu Mythos vein. His many books, published and forthcoming, include THE TANGLED MUSE (Centipede Press), SOME UNKNOWN GULF OF NIGHT (Arcane Wisdom Press), THE STRANGE DARK ONE--TALES OF NYARLATHOTEP (Miskatonic River Press) and UNCOMMON PLACES (Hippocampus Press). He is currently working on two collaborative books: one with Maryanne K.
