You wanna know what’s in this black bag?

We’ll give you an idea. We think you’re alright enough for that. But the rest of it is a surprise, got it?

First, anyone who buys the Halloween Grab Bag could win a subscription to the DRP 2012 Book Club. Did you get that? A free subscription to our book club with a $210 value, giving you Signed Limited Hardcovers of all the following titles: Glimpses: The Best Short Stories of Rick Hautala, Crooked House by Joe McKinney, Survival Horror by Jeff Strand, The Walls of the Castle by Tom Piccirilli, Holes For Faces by Ramsey Campbell, The Encounters of Enoch Coffin by W.H. Pugmire and Jeffrey Thomas.

How’s that for an all-star lineup? And we didn’t even mention all the extra stuff you get for being a DRP book club member.

Second, three of you lucky blood-suckers are gonna get sculptures. That includes the wolf head, the living gun, the zombie head candle holder and the never-before-seen demon head. That’s right, you could win the head of a demon with this grab bag. Put that on your mantle and terrify the whole family. It’s Halloween season, right?

Third, after you place your order we’ll send you the new story “Protect Us From The Piranha People!” by Jeff Strand, author of Pressure, Dweller and A Bad Day For Voodoo. Will the mayor shut down the beach? Or will he let dozens of people be eaten alive to let tourist season begin? We say pull up a lounge chair a few dozen feet from the shore, grab a bucket of popcorn and tell people how nice the water looks. But we’re a little deranged like that.

Finally, you won't receive books that you've ordered in the past (that's right, we'll actually check your DarkRegions.com order history).  You can even leave a note telling us which titles you already own.

Below all of this you’ll find the contents of the bag (bag not included, but who the hell cares about a bag, anyway?). Now the question is: will the mayor let them swim?  Find out inside the Halloween Grab Bag.

1x DRP T-Shirt ($20 value): Grab Bag buyers will get a t-shirt of their size choosing with their order.

1x DRP Bookmark ($1 value): Grab Bag buyers will receive a new laminated DRP Bookmark.

New Short Story from Jeff Strand: Grab Bag buyers will receive a digital edition via e-mail of the new Jeff Strand story “Protect Us From The Piranha People!” after their order! Jeff strand is the author of Pressure, Dweller, A Bad Day for Voodoo, Wolf Hunt and The Sinister Mr. Corpse.

DRP Sculptures (Demon Head, Living Gun, Zombie Candle Holder or Wolf Head, $30 value): 3x lucky Grab Bag buyers will receive a signed and limited DRP sculpture from artist and sculptor Frank Walls.

DRP 2012 Book Club Membership ($210 value): one lucky Grab Bag buyer will receive a DRP 2012 Book Club membership, giving them 6x Signed and Numbered Limited Hardcovers, e-book editions of all books, 1x surprise limited hardcover, 2x surprise limited trade paperbacks, permanent 15% discount code for the DarkRegions.com website.

Re: Dark Regions Press Book Announcement Thread

We've given away two of the three sculptures that are going to grab bag winners.  Only one more sculpture will be given away.  These sculptures are signed and numbered limited edition sculptures based off of our books.  The next winner could win the Zombie Head Candle Holder or the Regret Demon Head: http://www.darkregions.com/books/halloween-grab-bag

Re: Dark Regions Press Book Announcement Thread

Hey Chris, I like the idea of the grab bag, a cool little selection. Here's a question for you, since you should know your stock best. What author or book would you recommend for someone who likes Richard Matheson, H.P. Lovecraft, Stephen King and Poe? I'm wary when it comes to new horror books as the last couple I tried were rather disappointing IMO, one of which was from Brian Keene (nothing against him, just a little simple for my preference). A book of short stories or a feature length novel would be great. I look forward to checking out your wares.

http://www.darkregions.com/template/images/books/fiction/crooked_house/front_med_200px.jpg

From the Bram Stoker Award winning mass-distributed author of Dead City, Mutated, Quarantine, Flesh Eaters and more comes his first supernatural haunted house novel in two premium signed collectible hardcover formats limited to 26 and 150 copies worldwide.  Crooked House is a novel of subtle and encroaching terror in the vein of The Shining by Stephen King.  Own specialty collector editions from one of the top-growing names in horror.  Don't wait until it's too late, join author Joe McKinney in the frightening exploration of the Crooked House.

Click here to read more about Crooked House by Joe McKinney

In this republican country, amid the fluctuating waves of our social life, somebody is always at the drowning point.

Those words were true when Nathaniel Hawthorne wrote them in 1851, and they were true in 1933, when a fire burned half of Crook House to the ground, taking James Crook’s wife and two sons with it.  A disgraced bootlegger and former pro baseball player, James Crook returned from prison to find his house, and his life, a pile of cinders.  Broken and insane, he rebuilt Crook House, putting his pain and loneliness into every timber.

But Hawthorne’s words are still true today, and nobody knows that better than Dr. Robert Bell, who has just moved into Crook House as part of his hiring package from a small Texas college.  He soon discovers that Crook House is more than just a new beginning for himself and Sarah and their daughter Angela.  For the Bell family, Crook House is a place where the past still lives, and its horrors waiting for the next drowning man.

With Crooked House, Joe McKinney brings you a chilling novel in the vein of The Shining by Stephen King, a haunted house tale that will stay with you long after the final page is turned.

From four-time winner of the Bram Stoker Award, two-time winner of the International Thriller Writers Award and finalist for the 2009 Edgar Allan Poe Award Tom Piccirilli comes an intense and visceral psychological thriller novella, the first title in the Black Labyrinth imprint illustrated by renowned Argentinian Gothic artist Santiago Caruso.

The Walls of the Castle Description

In the labyrinthian maze of endless corridors, annexes, and wings of the enormous medical complex known as The Castle prowls a grief-stricken man determined to redeem himself and bring justice for those victims incapable of doing it for themselves.

During the four months that his son lay dying, ex-con Kasteel lost his job, his wife, and nearly his mind.  He became a fixture at the Castle, a phantom prowling the halls in the deep night, a shadow of his former self until he faded from sight and was forgotten altogether. 

Now, without any life to return to, he takes it upon himself to become the Castle's guardian.  He lives off the grid hiding among the hundreds of miles of twisting passages, rooms, offices, and underground parking structures.  Despair, confusion, and terror are the natural state and trade of any hospital:  Not only must the patients endure disease and infirmity, but others are victims of physical and sexual abuse from the outside world or from cruel security guards. 

The Castle was originally a colonial Dutch settlement: a village that grew into a town which grew into a city and at last became a hospital.  Kasteel has lost his very identity to this place, taking for himself the original Dutch name for

http://www.darkregions.com/template/images/books/poetry/luminous_worlds/front_cover_300px.jpg

Dark Regions Press proudly presents Luminous Worlds by Rhysling Award winning sci-fi poet David C. Kopaska-Merkel.

Click here to read more about Luminous Worlds by David C. Kopaska-Merkel

Description

We can only write what we know, whether that comes from communicating in broken French and broken English with a Parisian nurse, or staring in horror at the human effects of a geological calamity. Here are twenty years worth of dark poetry, representing a dark world, the very one we live in. These poems were written at home, at work, in the air, shipboard in the middle of the Indian Ocean, confined to a hospital bed in a foreign land, in other words, all the usual places. Influenced by Lovecraft, Zelazny, and Algernon Blackwood, among others, Kopaska-Merkel enlists his imagination and scientific background in service to poetic expressions of the wonder, horror, and magic that permeate our world.


Advance praise for  Luminous Worlds

“Linked by themes of cosmic isolation, ruin, dead cities, and mysterious women, these poems proceed by their own sure dream logic. Kopaska-Merkel’s deep understanding of science blends strangely but effectively with the surreal to create convincing narratives of impossible experience.” 
– Ann K. Schwader, Rhysling Award winner, author of Twisted in Dream and Wild Hunt of the Stars

“Over the last 25 years, David C. Kopaska-Merkel’s Dreams and Nightmares has been at the heart of speculative poetry movement, publishing some of the very best speculative poetry anywhere – in these pages, you’ll see that he’s written some of it, as well.  David has been a flame at the heart of a movement; herein, find the artistic core of things, and the vision behind a now-venerable publication. Damn, but the man can write!”
– W. Gregory Stewart, Nebula Nominee and multiple Rhysling Award winner

“The stark wind of a cautionary tale dips through the ruined cities and skewed alien love songs of Luminous Worlds. These are cohesive literate subtle explorations loaded with kinetics. ‘Ghost Lakes’ haunts with geologic power. An entire Japanese horror movie is encapsulated in ‘Tsunami Child.’ Kopaska-Merkel's formidable voice becomes a force to be reckoned with.”
– Robert Frazier, SFPA Grandmaster Poet, author of Phantom Navigation



About the Author

http://www.sfpoetry.com/ra/photos/06/06Kopaska-M.jpg

David C. Kopaska-Merkel describes rocks for the State of Alabama, and publishes Dreams and Nightmares, a magazine of SF and fantasy poetry. More than 1000 of his poems and stories have been published since the 70s. In 2006 a collaboration with Kendall Evans won the Rhysling Award of the Science Fiction Poetry Association. Flash fiction can be found at http://www.dailycabal.com. David lives with an artist and furry layabouts in a centuried farmhouse with a yellow tin roof. David was born in Virginia, but has lived where the dentist is king as long as anywhere.
