Click here to read more about Crustaceans by William Meikle

From Scottish writer William Meikle comes a novel that is a welcome return to those tomes of pure enjoyment that we read with guilt in our early teens, in the tradition of James Herbert’s THE RATS and Guy N. Smith’s NIGHT OF THE CRABS.

It begins with a dead whale on a Boston shoreline--not in itself an unusual occurrence. But the things that claw their way out of the blubber are very unusual indeed. A cast of giant crabs, evolved over centuries, descends on a small coastal town and, having feasted, make their way to the city using the sewer system. Soon they are swarming around Manhattan, hunted and harried by a SWAT team tasked with ridding the city of the menace...before the menace gets big enough to rid itself of the city.


About the Author

http://www.darkregions.com/template/images/authors_artists/william_meikle/williammeikle_thumb.jpg

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

The novel The Harmony Society by Tim Waggoner will be available on the DarkRegions.com website on Tuesday, April 17th.

Click here to read more about The Harmony Society by Tim Waggoner

Reality and nightmare. Past and present. Sanity and madness. For Nathan Bennett, there is no longer any difference between them - not since the Harmony Society came into his life. Now, as his world begins to collapse around him, Nathan must travel the strange and dangerous roads of the Nightway in search of the Dark Angel - a being of great power that the Harmony Society desperately wishes to control. But even if Nathan reaches the Angel first, what waits for him at the end of his long, dark road: salvation . . . damnation . . . Or both?

This novel is compelling, frightening, packed with haunting dreamlike imagery, and rich with imagination.
- Gary A. Braunbeck, author of Stoker-nominated author of THINGS LEFT BEHIND, THE INDIFFERENCE OF HEAVEN, and GRAVEYARD PEOPLE: The Collected Cedar Hill Stories, Vol. 1.


About the Author

http://www.timwaggoner.com/images/twnewphoto.jpg

Tim Waggoner wrote his first story at the age of five, when he created a comic book version of King Kong vs. Godzilla on a stenographer's pad. It took him a few more years until he began selling professionally, though. Overall, he has published more than twenty novels and two short story collections, and his articles on writing have appeared in Writer’s Digest and Writers’ Journal, among other publications. He teaches creative writing at Sinclair Community College and in Seton Hill University’s Master of Fine Arts in Writing Popular Fiction program. He hopes to continue writing and teaching until he keels over dead, after which he wants to be stuffed and mounted, and then placed in front of his computer terminal.

Click here to read more about Urn & Willow by Scott Thomas

Ghostly tales of 18th and 19th century New England

The hour is late, and wind whispers at the window. Autumn leaves have taken wing and a breeze troubles the candle flame. Something from the past has returned and walks the moonlit night. Something dead.

The door may be bolted and the fire may be warm, but the ghosts in Scott Thomas's URN AND WILLOW will find you. They wait patiently within the covers, inviting you to visit the lonely chamber where three sisters starved to death, and the small town where the devil's hoof prints steam in the snow, and a house where the rooms mysteriously multiply and are inhabited by otherworldly creatures. Come inside and visit the haunted seasons of the past.

Here are three of eleven interior illustrations by artist Erin Wells within Urn & Willow by Scott Thomas.  Click on the images for larger versions:

Dark Melodies by William Meikle, a new supernatural collection with tales all based on music will be available on the DarkRegions.com website on Tuesday, June 19th.

Music can transport you. It can bring sunshine on a cloudy day and lift your heart in times of trouble. But there is another side, a darker side, to music. Allow yourself to be open to a different melody, and who knows where the dance will take you.

In this collection you will follow the music into dark places, down dark passageways, where dark melodies play.


"William Meikle's stories capture the reader's imagination and takes it on a whirlwind of a roller-coaster ride that will leave you breathless come the last page." - Ginger Nuts of Horror

"I have become a big fan of Mr. Meikle, his books are always good and he is one hell of a storyteller." - Famous Monsters of Filmland

"In a literary world of mediocrity, William Meikle stands out as an author of almost arcane talents." - J Kent Holloway, author of Primal Thirst

"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." - David Wynn, Mythos Books

Glimpses: The Best Short Stories of Rick Hautala is now available on the DarkRegions.com website in two premium hardcover editions.  It includes twenty-four stories from the Lifetime Achievement Award winning best-selling author of the million-copy seller Night Stone, Rick Hautala.

“Rick Hautala’s writing shines with dedication, hard-earned craft, and devotion.”     
—Peter Straub

One of 2012’s HWA Lifetime Achievement Award Winners, Rick Hautala has a writing career that spans more than three decades. From Moondeath, his first novel published in 1980, to the republication of his best-selling novel The White Room (DRP, 2012) and his forthcoming “Little Brothers” novella Indian Summer (CD Publications, 2012), his novels and short stories have entertained millions of readers around the world.

Now comes Glimpses, a career-spanning “best of” collection that brings together twenty-four stories, including eight from each of Rick’s critically-acclaimed collections Bedbugs and Occasional Demons, and eight previously uncollected stories.

And Glimpses delivers what it promises—quick glimpses into the deepest shadows of our lives, around unfamiliar corners of streets we think we know, and down the darkest alleys of strange cities where readers will have to face their worst fears and their most unnerving nightmares.

Of course, Glimpses wouldn’t be a Rick Hautala collection if it didn’t included gorgeous original artwork—a wraparound cover and eight new illustrations—from award-winning artist Glenn Chadbourne.

So whether it’s in a haunted schoolhouse or an abandoned lighthouse, an iron bridge that spans a fast-moving river or a World War I battlefield, prepare yourself because you never know what you may catch a glimpse of … and by then, it may already be too late.



“Rick Hautala is a modern master of horror. He breathtakingly captures the things we fear, and love. With love, humanity, and a chilling eye, Hautala makes our hearts race.”   
—Matthew J. Costello, author of Vacation and Home
       
“Rick Hautala proves each time out that he understands and respects the inner workings of the traditional horror novel as well or better than anyone writing. He brings his own brand of ice and fire and blood to his work and he never forgets to entertain the reader.”   
—Joe R. Lansdale, author of the Hap and Leonard books and Edge of Dark Water

“Writes about the dark side of life as if he has lived there for centuries.”   
—John Coyne

“One of the most consistently reliable horror novelists ... [Rick Hautala] is adept at creating a chilly, unnerving atmosphere,particularly with his unconventional ghost stories.”       
—Don D’Ammassa, Science Fiction Chronice

“A master of contemporary horror and suspense.”
—T. Liam McDonald, Cemetery Dance


About the Author

http://www.darkregions.com/template/images/authors_artists/rick_hautala/rick_200px.jpg

Under his own name, Rick Hautala has written around thirty novels, including the million-copy best seller Nightstone, as well as Winter Wake, The Mountain King, and Little Brothers. He has previously published two short story collections: Bedbugs and Occasional Demons. He has had over sixty short stories published in a variety of national and international anthologies and magazines.

Writing as A. J. Matthews, his novels include the bestsellers The White Room, Looking Glass, Follow, and Unbroken.

His forthcoming books from Cemetery Dance Publications include Indian Summer, a new “Little Brothers” novella, as well as two novels, Chills and Waiting. He recently delivered The Star Road, a science fiction novel co-written with Matthew Costello, to Brendan Deneen at Thomas Dunne/St. Martin’s due to be published in 2013.

With Mark Steensland, he has written several screenplays, included the multiple award-winning short film Peekers, based on the short story by Kealan Patrick Burke; The Ugly File, based on the short story by Ed Gorman; and Lovecraft’s Pillow, inspired by a suggestion from Stephen King.

Born and raised in Rockport, Massachusetts, Rick is a graduate of the University of Maine in Orono with a Master of Arts in English Literature. He lives in southern Maine with author Holly Newstein.

“In Notes from the Shadow City, Crawford and Boston distill a bleak dystopian vision. Alone or together, and utilizing poetry, prose, and photographic images, they have crafted a guidebook, a Baedeker to the same outliers as chronicled by Dostoyevsky, Kafka, and Orwell, where shadows are more real than the gnomons that cast them, and the predominant colors come from the stripped-down underside of the rainbow.”
—Robert Borski, author of Blood Wallah and Other Poems

“Like grim guides of the underworld, Boston and Crawford lead you into a terrifying landscape of tragedy and tyranny. At times morbid, despairing, inspiring, and hauntingly beautiful, the Shadow City etches itself into your mind with lonely, tormented characters and their tragic fates.”
—Anders Monsen, Editor, Prometheus

“Boston’s and Crawford’s voices meld beautifully to create dark music. Notes from the Shadow City will echo in your nightmares.”
—Linda D. Addison, Bram-Stoker-Award-winning author of Being Full of Light, Insubstantial

“To say that reading Notes from the Shadow City is a delight might be misleading; to say that it is unsettling, disconcerting, provocative, and remarkable is to scratch the surface of the shadows and begin to reveal the genius beneath.”
—from the introduction by Michael R. Collings, author of The House beyond the Hill
