Summary

Three nightmare-inducing classics of contemporary horror from the award-winning “master of the genre” (Rocky Mountain News).   As “the living inheritor of the realm of Edgar Allan Poe,” Graham Masterton takes his place alongside Stephen King and Peter Straub in the canon of contemporary horror authors. Here are three of his most memorable novels, all steeped in supernatural shocks, Lovecraftian creepiness, and Masterton’s own boldly original vision (San Francisco Chronicle).  The Manitou: A tumor growing on the back of a young woman’s neck is in fact a vengeful spirit attempting to reenter the world. This acclaimed debut novel was adapted into a film starring Tony Curtis, Susan Strasberg, and Burgess Meredith.   “A chilling tale.” —Kirkus Reviews  Charnel House: In this Edgar Award Finalist, a house in San Francisco is possessed by an ancient demon with an insatiable hunger for blood. As it threatens to escape from its prison, the hapless homeowner, a civil servant, and a Native American shaman are the only ones who can stop it.   “[A] horror stalwart . . . Masterton is capable of conjuring a spooky atmosphere and evoking chills from understated terrors.” —Publishers Weekly  The Hymn: In this masterwork of supernatural suspense, a man haunted by his fiancée’s suicide investigates a mysterious rash of sacrificial deaths in California and descends into a nightmare world of paranormal cults and Nazi terror. Originally published as The Burning.

    "On every level, Cold Storage is pure, unadulterated entertainment." —Douglas Preston, The New York Times Book Review 
    For fans of The Martian, Dark Matter, and Before the Fall comes an astonishing debut thriller by the screenwriter of Jurassic Park: a wild and terrifying bioterrorism adventure about three strangers who must work together to contain a highly contagious, deadly organism that could destroy all of humanity. 
    They thought it was contained. They were wrong. 
     
    When Pentagon bioterror operative Roberto Diaz was sent to investigate a suspected biochemical attack, he found something far worse: a highly mutative organism capable of extinction-level destruction. He contained it and buried it in cold storage deep beneath a little-used military repository. 
    Now, after decades of festering in a forgotten sub-basement, the specimen has found its way out and is on a lethal feeding frenzy.  Only Diaz knows how to stop it. 
    He races across the country to help two unwitting security guards—one an ex-con, the other a single mother.  Over one harrowing night, the unlikely trio must figure out how to quarantine this horror again.  All they have is luck, fearlessness, and a mordant sense of humor.  Will that be enough to save all of humanity?
