Released 10 December from Silver Shamrock Publishing is The Corruption of Alston House, by John Quick (The Damnation Trail).

Can she uncover the dark secrets at the heart of the town, or will she become the latest victim? You can pre-order your copy right now, here.
A wealthy couple drunkenly ditch their car and a strange tow truck driver regales them with off-putting stories, stories relating strangely to their personal lives. With short fiction by Stephen Graham Jones (Mongrels, Mapping the Interior, The Only Good Indians), Philip Fracassi (Behold the Void, Sacculina), and Renee Miller (Cats Like Cream, The One You Feed). This collection of short fiction forms part of Unnerving’s ‘Rewind or Die’ series.

From Eddie Generous, author of Radio Run and Great Big Teeth, comes Dancing with the Dead, a collection of short fiction. From the Egyptian artifact hiding in a small town basement in ‘House on Manager’s Row’, to the ghastly visitations in ‘The Bridge Home’, ‘A Christmas Wish’, and ‘Monster Under the Bed,’ this collection offers up twisted and suspenseful tales of monsters, ghosts, witchcraft, zombies, horrible people, and all the magic of the spaces between. Available for pre-order now, you can get hold of your very own copy, here.
One year following the devastating attack by the 30 Minutes or Less Killer, Bella and her family are trying to move on with their lives. They’ve bought a new house out in the country, far away from the nightmare that Bella lived through. No one has heard from the 30 Minutes or Less Killer, no one knows if he’s gone underground, or moved far away — hiding and plotting his revenge on the one person to have survived his attacks. Even with all the mental and emotional scars, is one year enough time to start relaxing and hoping he’s gone for good? You can get hold of your copy of this second installment, here.
