Click here to learn more about Rusting Chickens by Gene O'Neill


Rob McKenna knew all about pain and suffering. As a member of a top secret black ops mission deep inside Pakistan, his Marine Force Recon Unit had a close up and personal tour of Hell on Earth and the horrors that men are capable of doing to one another. When he returned back stateside to Napa, California, Rob was a shadow of his former self, a broken young man left clinging to the tattered fragments of his marriage, his memory, and the rapid decline of his physical and mental health.

Coming back from the war was supposed to be the end of Rob's misery, the start of his new life, but unfortunately Hell had followed him home and the horror and pain had only just begun. Waiting for him where he least expected.

"Gene O'Neill's imagination transcends genre conventions. His prose is simultaneously lyrical and gritty, poetic and violent. With Rusting Chickens, O'Neill captures the vicious nature of warfare, not merely in physical combat, but in the psychological battles a soldier is cursed to fight for the remainder of his days. This is Gene O'Neill at his finest!"
- Michael McBride, author of Predatory Instinct and Blindspot

"From the brutal horrors of modern war, to the twisted battlefields of the healing human mind, Gene O'Neill takes his growing legion of fans on a chilling journey they won't soon forget. RUSTING CHICKENS will leave readers breathless and guessing right to the bitter end... and beyond. Highly recommended!"
- Gord Rollo, Author of Valley Of The Scarecrow and Strange Magic.


About the author

Gene O’Neill lives in the Napa Valley with his wife, Kay, a retired primary grade teacher at St. Helena Elementary School. They have been married for 40 plus years; their grown children, Gavin and Kay Dee, live in Oakland and San Diego. Gene has two degrees, neither having anything to do with writing (or much of anything else). At one time or another he has been a college basketball player, an amateur boxer, a Marine, carried mail, worked on seismic crews exploring for oil, been a Right-of-Way Agent (appraised, acquired, condemned, and managed real property to build the interstate highway system around Sacramento), been a contract specialist for AAFES (contracting to bring private services like barbers, cleaners, and beauty parlors onto military bases), and vice president of a small manufacturing plant. Gene describes his employment background as “rich, varied, and colorful.” His brother-in-law, the president of the above manufacturing plant, describes Gene as more of a “disgruntled ne’er-do well.”

Since surviving the Clarion Writers' Workshop in 1979,Gene has seen over 120 of his stories published, perhaps most notably: two in the Twilight Zone Magazine, six in the
Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, two in Pulpsmith, four in Science Fiction Age, three in Cemetery Dance, and many in specialized publications like Dragon and Starshore, with numerous anthology placements, including Borderlands 5 and DEAD END:CITY LIMITS. Stories have been reprinted in France, Spain, and Russia. A few of his past stories have garnered Nebula and Stoker recommendations, including “Balance,” a short story Stoker finalist in 2007, and THE CONFESSIONS OF ST. ZACH, a Stoker finalist in the long fiction category in 2009. DOC GOOD’S TRAVELING SHOW was a long fiction Stoker finalist in 2010 and TASTE OF TENDERLOIN won that year for collection. Some of these stories have been collected in GHOST SPIRITS, COMPUTERS & WORLD MACHINES, THE GRAND STRUGGLE, and TASTE OF TENDERLOIN, which also garnered a 2009 starred review in Publishers Weekly. Upcoming is another collection in 2011: DANCE OF THE BLUE LADY & OTHER STORIES. His novels include, THE BURDEN OF INDIGO, COLLECTED TALES OF THE BAJA EXPRESS, SHADOW OF THE DARK ANGEL, DEATHFLASH, LOST TRIBE, and the recently completed NOT FADE AWAY. All of these novels and the two forthcoming collections have been/will be released as s/l HBs in 2010, 2011, and 2012 along with the CAL WILD trilogy in 2012. Also to see release soon are two novella, RUSTING CHICKENS from Dark Regions Press and DOUBLEJACK from Sideshow Press. SSP will also release a chapbook, CHRONICLES OF THE DOUBLE SPARROW in 2012 sometime.

Gene writes full time now, currently finishing up the CAL WILD trilogy.

Hades is in upheaval. The Damned are rebelling, and worse, the more human-like breeds of Demons are beginning to sympathize with their plight. The Creator Himself decides to venture into Hades to address this conflict, a conflict which may test His very sanity...and make him a target of assassination. Against this tense background, a Damned man named Frank Lyre and a beautiful winged Demon named Oni act out a passionate love affair, but they too will be swept into a battle that may decide the future of all Creation.
 
Subversive, sexy, poetic and nightmarish, Beautiful Hell is set in the world of Jeffrey Thomas' short story collection Voices From Hades, and the novels The Fall of Hades and Letters From Hades, about which F. Paul Wilson said, "Jeffrey Thomas' imagination is as twisted as it is relentless."

Dark Regions Press is proud to announce that the novel London Macabre by Steven Savile is now available for preorder on the DarkRegions.com website
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!


Click here to learn more about London Macabre by Steven Savile


It begins innocently enough, with the death of a prostitute in Bedford Square, London. She isn't the first 'flower girl' to die and she won't be the last, not now the killer had a taste for it.
 
The man, Nathaniel Seth, is one of the Brethren, a shadow society of occult dabblers and black magickers who hide away in the darkest parts of the city, in corners where they could not be seen by polite society. Little did Seth know that his own life was only hours from ending, his flesh to be taken as host for a daemonic entity clawed all the way out of hell's pit in the centre of the hollow earth because Seth himself breached the Catamine Stair. Now things are afoot. Strange things. The lions of Traflagar have fulfilled their prophecy, climbing down from the plinths around Lord Nelson's column to defend the city. The daemon is out, stalking tender prey through the gaslit streets, meat markets, fish stalls and slaughter houses of Whitehall. He has a taste for women, though not ordinary women. These women are different. Special. They may look like whores but they have the blood of angels flowing in their veins. If he can kill enough of them, bathing in their innocent blood, then the daemonic Seth believes he can open the ancient Ald Gate--one of the seven great gates of London--the last gate to Eden, and go home, even if it means tearing London herself apart.
 
The gates are guarded by The Seven, bloodsucking angelkind put there to guard a very special prisoner. A prisoner who cannot be allowed to escape. Satanial. The Devil by another name. Cast down and trapped in a hell on earth, watched over by Uriel, the mad Archangel.
 
A few stedfast men stand in the daemon's way, led by Fabian Stark, a man himself doomed to die before even the first die is cast, and each of them cursed in their own way: Dorian Carruthers, Haddon McCreedy, Eugene Napier, Anthony Millington, and Brannigan Locke. The Grayfriar's Gentleman's Club.
 
Can these few men stop the daemonic Seth from opening the gates and all hell breaking loose?
 
It is as though Savile is the bastard child of Philip Pulman and Neil Gaiman, and London Macabre, part serial killer novel, part vast fabulist Victoriana epic, part Steampunk novel with a great slice of occultism and mysticism as well as a radical warping of all things holy, is quite unlike any dark fantasy novel you've ever read.


About the author

Shadow of the Jaguar, which was a #1 bestseller in the UK in 2008.

Dark Regions Press is proud to announce that the new novel Isis Unbound by Allyson Bird is now available for preorder on the DarkRegions.com website
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!


Click here to learn more about Isis Unbound by Allyson Bird!


Inspired in part by Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, Percy Bysshe Shelley's, Prometheus Unbound, and the works of Rider Haggard and R. E. Howard, Isis Unbound is set in an alternate history, steampunk version of 1890's Manceastre, Britanniae, ruled by a new governor general related to a descendant of Anthony and Cleopatra, who won the battle of Actium two thousand years ago, and where the ancient Egyptian gods are real. ...Only a god can kill a god. Nepythys has killed her sister, Isis, and therefore the dead cannot pass over to the underworld--their ranks are rapidly swelling and they now roam the streets as zombies. Chief Embalmer Ptolemy Child's two daughters, Ella and Loli, aged eighteen and ten respectively, are being instructed in the secrets of the mummification process, when the dead begin to wake and walk. And eventually lead the sisters to the greatest mystery of all: Isis, herself...

'Allyson Bird is a writer who never plays it safe. Her wild imagination and power to evoke both myth and madness make her one of the most interesting writers working out there on the edge of horror/fantasy.'
— Lisa Tuttle.

'Allyson Bird is a rare bird indeed. An original voice in a world of plain vanilla. She rides some dark waves with grace and heart full of light and shadow. If there's any justice, she on her way to real recognition.' and she, ‘already has a prominent award under her belt; the British Fantasy Society award for her first collection, which I can also recommend, titled Bull Running For Girls. Still, you may not know her name. You should know her name. You should know her stories, her writing. Her work is as fresh as a spring wind; especially if that wind is carrying nasty spores from outer space, or bringing them from some place split sideways and shadowy, from a universe where the familiar is not as familiar as it might seem.'
— Joe.R.Lansdale.

LIBRARY JOURNAL review for ISIS UNBOUND:

"Generations ago, Cleopatra, with the blessing of Isis and Anthony at her side, started an empire. Her descendants still rule, but the goddess Isis has fallen silent, and there are those who fear her favor has been lost and the empire is falling apart. It is not that Isis has forgotten her empire, but she has been killed by her sister, the goddess Nepythys. Now the dead cannot pass over and stumble restless and frightened through a city already oppressed by plague and tyranny. The Chief Embalmer’s daughters, Ella and Loli, get involved in the machinations of the gods themselves as the fate of an empire is decided. VERDICT Set in a declining Egyptian empire dusted with the familiar technological and scientific trappings of a steampunk setting, this debut novel by British Fantasy Award winner Bird (Bull Running for Girls) is a frightening, gorgeous book that breathes something fascinating and new into the genre. It will appeal to avid readers of steampunk as well as horror fans." — April Steenburgh, George F. Johnson Memorial Lib., Endwell NY.


About the author

Allyson Bird lives on the edge of the South Yorkshire moors in England, with her husband and young daughter. Occasionally she is drawn to strange places and people and they are occasionally drawn to her. Her favourite playground, as a child and adult, has been the village graveyard. Once she wondered what would happen if she took one of the green stones from a grave. She has been looking over her shoulder ever since but has never given it back.

Allyson Bird won the British Fantasy award for her collection Bull Running for Girls.

Dark Regions Press is proud to announce that the new novel Lullaby for the Rain Girl by Christopher Conlon is now available for preorder on the DarkRegions.com website
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!


Click here to learn more about Lullaby for the Rain Girl by Christopher Conlon!


At age 36, Ben Fall is a man in torment. Overstressed, out of shape, in the middle of a bitter divorce, and carrying a secret that weighs heavily on his psyche, he's convinced he's a failure. He can hardly get out of bed in the morning to make his way to the high school where he teaches English. But suddenly one gray afternoon, a mousy, nondescript new girl appears in his classroom. She seems fascinated by everything he says and does--disturbingly so. Yet, though she gazes obsessively at him and hangs on his every word, she won't even tell him her name...just that she's "The Rain Girl." Who is she? Where does she come from? What does she want?
 
And why does no one seem to see her but him?  
 
The answers Ben finds will prove heartbreaking...and horrifying.
 
 
"We could call this book a 'contemporary metaphysical mystery' or a 'modern fantasy,' but it's far more...Lullaby for the Rain Girl resonates like the Expat Paris of Hemingway in A Moveable Feast and the 1960s College Crazy of Richard Farina's Been Down So Long Looks Like Up To Me: detailed recall of 'what was' interwoven with 'what should have been.' There's a rough 20th century romanticism, too, something like Richard Matheson's sensibility filtered through Henry Miller's libidinous viewpoint. It gives us the hauntings of not-quite-ghosts, lingering regrets and remembrances, and the documentation of the results of not so wise but always human choices. It is one hell of a story told by one hell of a writer, a novel that feels more evocatively true than many memoirs."
- Mort Castle, author of Moon on the Water and The Strangers
 
"This powerful  novel is both innovative and a fine example of world-class storytelling: it's about life and the restless shadows it casts; it's about death and ghosts who aren't ghosts. Gripping, nuanced, and deep, Conlon's novel  delivers."
- John Shirley, author of Bleak History and In Extremis


About the author

Christopher Conlon is a writer, poet, and editor best known for his first novel, Midnight on Mourn Street (Stoker Award finalist, 2009), and his Richard Matheson tribute anthology He Is Legend (Stoker Award winner, 2010). His other titles include A Matrix of Angels (novel), Starkweather Dreams (poetry), and Poe's Lighthouse (anthology). A former Peace Corps Volunteer, Conlon holds an M.A. in American Literature and now resides in Silver Spring, Maryland, with his wife and cats.

Dark Regions Press is proud to announce that the new novella Blindspot by Michael McBride is now available for preorder in a 125 Signed and Limited Trade paperback edition for just $14.95 with free USA shipping and discounted international shipping!


Click here to learn more about Blindspot by Michael McBride!


At 2:31 a.m., seismic monitoring stations in China and South Korea detect a magnitude-4 event consistent with a nuclear detonation in the southeastern corner of North Korea, within the Korean Demilitarized Zone. With the threat of full-scale war escalating by the minute, the United Nations Security Council dispatches an elite unit of peacekeepers to cross the border, penetrate the cloud of dust hanging over the site, and determine the exact nature of the seismic disturbance. What they find triggers a series of events that culminates in a civilian biomedical engineer boarding a transport carrier at Ft. Detrick, Maryland, bound for the Far East.
 
His name is Dr. Parker Ramsey and he is uniquely qualified for this mission.
 
He is the brains behind a secret project--Code Name Hindsight--developed under the oversight of the United States Army Medical Research and Materiel Command. Hindsight has never been field-tested, but with global catastrophe looming on the horizon, the only chance of averting it lies in utilizing the project's extraordinary capabilities. If it works, Dr. Ramsey will be able to unravel the mystery behind the detonation and identify the responsible party.
 
For, thanks to Hindsight, Dr. Ramsey will be able to see something that no one has ever seen before...
 
He'll be able to see the moment of death through the eyes of the dead.
 
If he's able to survive long enough to do so.
 
 
"Writing with the soul of a poet and the imagination of a demon, Michael McBride creates terrifying enchantments."
- Bruce Boston, author of The Nightmare Collection
 
"McBride just keeps getting better!"
- Hellnotes
 
"Whether he's writing stuff that's quietly creepy or stuff that's action-packed and blood-drenched, Michael McBride never fails to deliver a fantastic read!"
- Jeff Strand, author of Dweller and Pressure
 
"Make no mistake, Michael McBride is now ready to step in with the heavy hitters. Jeffery Deaver, Michael Marshall Smith, Thomas Harris--are you doing your roadwork?"
- Gene O'Neill, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Taste of Tenderloin

Dark Regions Press is proud to announce that the new collection Nightingale Songs by Simon Strantzas is now available in both a leather-bound signed by both author and artist Deluxe Lettered Hardcover with slipcase edition and a 100 Signed and Numbered Limited Hardcover edition with free United States shipping!

PREORDER SPECIAL: order the 100 Signed and Numbered Limited Hardcover edition while still in preorder stage and get $5 off the retail price!


Click here to learn more about Nightingale Songs by Simon Strantzas!


In the dead of night, there are footsteps in the hall . . .
In the dead of night, your past mistakes will haunt you . . .
In the dead of night, you hear a discordant tune . . .
In the dead of night, the nightingale sings . . .
 
Simon Strantzas, master of the subtle and the bizarre, returns with a dozen strange tales and eerie mysteries. From the shores of a remote oil-stained sound to deep within the familiar heart of suburbia, these are the songs of broken people who cannot find a way to fix themselves, who must search the dark for salvation. Like a siren, the nightingale sings them onward to face their end. But it sings for you too. A requiem in your honor. Because, for you, it is already too late.


"Nightingale Songs is a dark gem. Strantzas demonstrates once again why he is so highly regarded amongst connoisseurs of the macabre and the fantastic."
- Laird Barron
 
"Simon Strantzas displays a gift for evoking disturbing atmospheres and creating odd, frightening encounters with the uncanny . . . "
- Lisa Tuttle
 
"He does not show you the gate to this new Golden Age of weird fiction that is upon us, but leads you through it."
- Joseph S. Pulver
 
"Strantzas deftly establishes ordinary and seemingly innocuous situations that spin out of the characters' control and always end with an uneasy sense of menace, even when their resolution is ambiguous or cryptic."
- Publishers Weekly

"Like the subtly disquieting locations in which they take place—a suburban house obscured by weeds and dark butterflies, the basement of a former home grown suddenly unfamiliar, a sleep clinic where the patients never meet—Simon Strantzas’ elegant stories worry at the reader’s sense of certainty. The songs they sing won’t comfort you. But you will remember them."
- Glen Hirshberg


About the author

Simon Strantzas is the author of the critically-acclaimed Cold to the Touch (Tartarus Press, 2009), a collection of thirteen tales of the strange and supernatural. His first collection, Beneath the Surface (reprinted by Dark Regions Press, 2010), has been called "one of the most important debut short story collections in the genre". Strantzas's stories have appeared in The Mammoth Book of Best New Horror, Cemetery Dance, and Postscripts. In 2009, his work was nominated for the British Fantasy Award for Best Short Fiction. He lives in Toronto, Canada, with his wife and an unyielding hunger for the flesh of the living. For more information, please visit http://www.strantzas.com

Dark Regions Press is proud to announce that the new novella Sherlock Holmes: Revenant by William Meikle is now available in a 125 Signed and Numbered Trade Paperback edition and The Invasion/The Valley Dark Regions Double book by William Meikle is currently in stock and available in a Trade Paperback edition!

Click here to learn more about The Invasion/The Valley Dark Regions Double!


Sherlock Holmes: Revenant

A strange sickness affecting the members of the House of Lords starts a new adventure for Holmes and Watson, one that will see them on the run, accused of murder and pursued by both the police and a deadly gang of assassins.
 
The case takes them up and down the country, from Scotland to the Houses of Parliament and leads them down arcane paths, following their relentless foe in pursuit of the lost secret of immortality.
 
Their adversary seems hell-bent, not only on their destruction but on an act of terrorism that will shake London to its foundations.
 
Holmes must catch and unmask the revenant, and only by confronting his own past will he be able to prevail.


The Invasion

It started during a winter storm on the North Eastern Seaboard which brought with it a strange green rain. Where it fell, everything withered, died, and was consumed. The residents of remote outposts in Maritime Canada escaped the worst of the early damage, but that was a blessing in disguise, for they were left to watch as first North America, then the world, was subsumed in the creeping green carpet of terror.

And that was just the beginning. New life forms began to arise from the ooze, simple organisms at first, but multiplying with ever-increasing complexity. The few human survivors are faced with a full-scale invasion... and only radical measures will guarantee the survival of the human race.

"If you're on the fence with this one, then climb down and give it a shot. The Invasion is great 50's B-Movie fun and comes highly recommended."
- Horror World


The Valley

In 1863, a group of mercenaries are hired to help out a mining town in Montana. They arrive to find the town empty and some of the buildings wrecked and strewn over a wide area. A new cave leads them to a land that time forgot, a high valley full of animals that are extinct elsewhere, but have thrived in the remote environment. But something else is loose in the land, something even older that has emerged from the cave system.

Soon the remaining men are fighting for their lives, and the lives of everything in the valley.
 
"This is pure pulp fiction goodness."
- The Man-Eating Bookworm


About the author

The Blooded Iklwa:  A malevolent spirit is intent on blood. Can Carnacki identify the source of the attacks and stop the Zulu blade from its nightly haunting? Or will his client be forced to suffer a death of a thousand cuts?
 
The Larkhill Barrow: A pounding terror has been called up out of Salisbury Plain; an ancient darkness that will haunt your dreams.  
 
The Sisters of Mercy: Battle hardened old soldiers lie sick abed in fear for their souls. Only someone with intimate knowledge of the powers of darkness can help them.
 
The Hellfire Mirror: The rituals of an infamous club have left their mark on a mirror, leading Carnacki into a fight to stop his own home from being overrun with the forces of darkness.
 
The Beast of Glamys: Danger to the daughter of a Scottish Lord leads Carnacki to a remote castle, and the uncovering of the secret behind a legend that has persisted for centuries.

The Tomb of Pygea:  Something serpentine whispers in the dark under Admiralty Arch, and only Carnacki has the skills, and the nerve, to descend, and to listen.
 
The Lusitania: A cruise ship is berthed in Liverpool, deserted by passengers and crew, stuck in port until Carnacki can remove the cause of their terror; apparitions of disaster and shipwreck
 
The Haunted Oak: Ghosts of the recent dead walk beneath its spreading boughs and the Church needs Carnacki's expertise. But some things are best left to take their course -- natural, or supernatural.
 
The Shoreditch Worm: When one of the churches of London changes its chimes, something old starts to wake. Can Carnacki stop it before it is too late?
 
The Dark Island: Carnacki uncovers a gateway to a dark realm of magic and myth, where the far future of our planet can be touched and seen, if a man has the stomach for it.

Phantom Navigation by Robert Frazier will be available on Tuesday, January 10th!  The book will already be in stock and shipping upon launch:

Click here to read more about Phantom Navigation

23 chromosomes from one parent, 23 from the other. 46 inescapable parts to a recipe. In Robert Frazier's case, his father was a cryptographer at Bletchley Park during WWII, and his mother was a landscape painter who studied with Emile Albert Gruppé. Thus the mystical science of deciphering gibberish into plain text meshes with a penchant for impressionistic imagery in Phantom Navigation. Within his first poetry collection in ten years, Frazier maps half-a-hundred works collected from a long career in publishing. Join the 3-time Rhysling-award-winner as he explores the intersection of science and art with a vengeance.

"As honest as wheat, as spectacular and absorbing as a dream, Phantom Navigation is an explosion of creativity from one of America's finest poets. Robert Frazier's breadth of vision is extraordinary."
- Lucius Shepard, author of The Dragon Griaule
 
"A little Ginsberg, a little Eliot, a little Coleridge, and a lot of storytelling in the sfinal way, yet it is poetry, pure poetry, down to its pretty little ionized toes. How can anyone who loves poetry and sf/fantasy resist this new
collection by the master himself. That's it! Don't resist! Resistance is futile."
- Jane Yolen, author of Things to Say to a Dead Man
 
"Robert Frazier writes knowing, evocative, poignant, and allusive poetry. His images and metaphors, in addition to startling with their aptness, create clear pictures of alien situations and phenomena, a remarkable skill. Further, this book showcases Frazier's talents in nearly fifty disciplined individual performances."
- Michael Bishop, author of The Door Gunner, and Other Perilous Flights of Fancy

The Dark Side of Heaven by Gord Rollo, a new novella will be available on Tuesday, January 24th on the DarkRegions.com website in a 125 Signed and Numbered Trade Paperback edition!

Click here to read more about The Dark Side of Heaven

War can do terrible things to the hearts and minds of even the best of men, but for U.S. Marine Lance Corporal Tyrone Banks the senseless deaths and unnecessary violence in Vietnam have beaten him down and smothered the compassion and good that was once inside of him. Grief stricken and suicidal;  the extreme guilt over the awful things he’s done pushes the young Marine beyond his breaking point until death feels like his only remaining option.

Rather than eating a bullet, Tyrone volunteers for Tunnel Rat duty hoping to finally find release but instead of his carefully planned honorable death, what the Marine finds down in the dark is a backdoor to Purgatory, a secret entrance into the afterlife where he’ll get one last chance to right all the terrible wrongs that constantly haunt him. It won’t be easy, though. Nothing worthwhile ever is. If Tyrone thought the things lurking in the jungle of Vietnam were bad, what’s waiting for him on the dark side of Heaven is worse.

Much, much worse…


"With THE DARK SIDE OF HEAVEN Rollo turns his considerable talents toward military horror and the result is as unique as it is impressive. Like nothing fans have read from him before, Rollo weaves a chilling tale of a young Marine straddling the thin line between horror and fantasy, damnation and redemption, and ultimately, life and death. Highly recommended for fans of both horror and dark fantasy."
- Jimmy Z. Johnston (http://www.Horror-Web.com)

"Rollo is the best new horror writer I have come across in years. if he continues to horrify us with his brutal and amazing tales of the macabre, then I believe we have a new master of horror on the rise."
- The Horror Review

A soft voice like a strange tune echoing along the empty corridors…

Dim lights in the windows of the abandoned asylum…

Discarded case files that flip open to reveal the dreams of broken minds…

Acclaimed author Gary McMahon raids the archives of a notorious derelict mental asylum called the Daleside Institute to bring you stories of madness, horror and emotional trauma.

The Bram Stoker Award winning book Taste of Tenderloin by Gene O'Neill will be launching on the DarkRegions.com website in two collectible hardcover formats on Tuesday, February 28th.  Click here to find out how you could win a $45 100 Signed and Numbered Limited Hardcover of the book for free.

Click here to read more about Taste of Tenderloin by Gene O'Neill

Winner of the 2009 Stoker Award for Superior Achievement in a Collection.

Nine stories of dark science fiction and fantasy take us through the underbelly of San Francisco's most notorious district known as the Tenderloin.

Best known for his strong sense of place and uniquely vibrant characters.  O'Neill brings the gritty underside of the city to life with nine interwoven stories of broken lives, missed dreams, and all that can go wrong with both reality and fantasy among the down and out.  The city itself opens wide to swallow all comers with the temptation of its secrets and sins, while O'Neill brings dignity and humanity to a set of characters often overlooked in both society and fiction.

"Haunting, lyrical and often uncomfortably realistic, this slim collection of eight short stories plunges the reader into the darker side of San Francisco. Altered states of consciousness-minds changed by grief, chemistry or too much hard living-are everywhere. In Magic Words, an advertising executive pays a homeless woman a high price for transient success. Poignant and plausible almost to a fault, Tombstones in His Eyes twists the horrors of drug addiction into something harder, sharper and scarier. In the Apotheosis of Nathan McKee, a brokenhearted father's descent into insanity-or is it merely invisibility?-makes normalcy seem all too tenuous. The best story of the bunch, 5150, documents the final moments of a worn-out cop about to retire. O'Neill's deft, authentic prose resonates with the weight of sad reality, erasing the line between knowledge and fear." - Starred review - Publishers Weekly
