The New York Times–bestselling author of The Undead continues the nail-biting story of a reluctant vampire fighting to save what’s left of his humanity. Once a surgeon, Michael Bowman is now working the night shift at a convenience store in Dallas, a job with perfect hours for a vampire. After being turned by his friend Adam four months ago, he has struggled with his hunger, sometimes killing to satisfy his endless needs. His already thin bond with his wife, a homicide detective, is starting to fray. And Adam—enslaved by his evil, bloodsucking master—has become nothing more than a vicious pet. At his wit’s end, Mike is approached by the Society, a group of “civilized” vampires, who promise him a life without killing—and help in saving Adam and himself from the monster bent on destroying his own bloodline. But it soon becomes clear to Mike that the Society is not what it seems. And what promises to be a refuge is in fact a cage that is closing in around him . . . Praise for The Undead “Fresh, intense, erotic, funny, and scary . . . a five-star winner. I couldn’t put it down and didn’t want it to end. Absolutely, do NOT let this one get away!” —P. N. Elrod, author of Drawing Dead and Other Stories “In The Undead, vampires lurk menacingly, and they are not the cute, cuddly, romantic-type vampires of modern urban fiction. These are serious, life-threatening, blood-sucking, kill-you-till-you’re-dead vampires . . . [a] diamond in the rough.” —Rambles.NET
Sometimes horror is in the mind. And sometimes it's real. Telling the difference isn't always easy.
It wasn't for Joe Creed. He'd just photographed the unreal. Now he had to pay the price. Because he always thought that demons were just a joke.
But the joke was on him.And it wasn't very funny. It was deadly . . .
"The Transition of Juan Romero" is a short story by American horror fiction writer H. P. Lovecraft, written on September 16, 1919, and first published in the 1944 Arkham House volume Marginalia.Plot: The story involves a mine that uncovers a very deep chasm, too deep for any sounding lines to hit bottom. The night after the discovery of the abyss the narrator and one of the mine's workers, a Mexican called Juan Romero, venture inside the mine, drawn against their will by a mysterious rhythmical throbbing in the ground. Romero reaches the abyss first and is swallowed by it. The narrator peers over the edge, sees something - "but God, I dare not tell you what I saw!" and loses consciousness. That morning he and Romero are both found in their bunks, Romero dead. Other miners swear that neither of them left their cabin that night. The chasm has vanished as well.
From USA TODAY Bestselling Author Harper Lin: A Paranormal Mystery Series about Magic Cats and Modern-day Witches
Cath Greenstone, her cousin Bea, and her hippie aunt Astrid live in Wonder Falls, a small town near the mystical Niagara Falls. They run the Brew-Ha-Ha café, and naturally, they’re witches hiding in plain sight along with their three magical cats, Treacle, Peanut Butter, and Marshmallow.
When Brew-Ha-Ha's baker is burnt to a crisp, along with their beloved café, Aunt Astrid lets out a big family secret: a powerful spell book, a Greenstone heirloom from the Salem days, has been stolen from its secret hiding spot in the café. If it’s fallen into the wrong hands, black magic could destroy not only Wonder Falls but the world.
A secret society… A new detective with a shady past… A once-bullied local returning to town as a multimillionaire.
Who in town could know Cath’s family secret? Cath, Bea, and Astrid must use their witch powers to uncover the deadly truth. Cath communicates with their cats, also magically inclined, and they help uncover more than one secret lurking in wonderful Wonder Falls.

Your monster hunting pros
When a camp counselor goes missing under shadowy circumstances, the Blue Wolf and his team race to an idyllic summer camp to recover her.
But the mystery of the counselor only darkens. Prior to disappearing, she shook her cabin with supernatural tales of the deadly and deranged… and now they’re coming to life. Towering over them all is Tommy Wortmann, a demonic brute intent on turning the camp into his grisly killing grounds.
Can the Legion Team find the missing counselor and liquidate the lethal legends?
Or will Camp Courage be forever known as Camp Dread?
Legion Files is a spinoff of the popular Blue Wolf series but stands on its own. If you like your supernatural squads with banter, big guns, cool magic, and a lupine legend, you’re in the right place!
Jace Stanford has lost family, friends, and his arm to the zombie apocalypse that hit his subdivision of Whispering Pines. But he’s also gained something he never in a million years would have thought would be a plus: the cannibal savant known as Elsbeth.
Now Jace needs Elsbeth’s help more than ever. But is she up to the task when her past is revealed? A past that is possibly more shocking than the zombie apocalypse itself? Jace is gonna find out the hard way.
And, as everyone knows, in Z-Burbia the hard way usually means a whole lot of people are going to die!
Welcome back to Z-Burbia, y’all!
“I have really enjoyed this series, and Z-Burbia 3: Estate of the Dead did not disappoint. It was cool to finally get a few answers on Elsbeth's past - where she came from and how she became the badass she is today. With lots of laughs, killing, and of course...zombies, this is a great series for anyone into apocalyptic thrillers. I can't wait to start book four!” -Jennifer Murphy, 5-star Goodreads review
“This series gets better with every book.The action grabs you from the start and doesn't let up.Unlike a lot of zombie books these characters feel well rounded and believable. I can't wait to start on the next book.” Christine Delong, 5-star Goodreads review
