The Red Empire and Other Stories

by Joe McKinney

[Redrum Horror #1]

EIGHT TALES OF TERROR AND SUSPENSE FROM MASTER STORYTELLER JOE McKINNEY.

The Red Empire is the Army’s secret weapon against insurgents the world over. A gigantic colony of inch long, super-intelligent fire ants, The Red Empire is capable of fighting any enemy, no matter where they’re hiding. But when the military transport tasked with delivering this weapon washes out in a flash flood along the Texas-Mexico border, and the ants are loosed upon the countryside, no one is safe…

Included in this collection are seven additional tales of murder and injustice, things criminal and darkly supernatural. McKinney takes us from the ghostly sorrow of a grieving parent to the depths of a Lovecraftian nightmare, from a sanity-destroying discovery by one of America’s greatest writers to a love lost that won’t let go until a man is driven over the edge. Tales of horror and human depravity you won’t dare miss!

“Joe McKinney has been my favorite horror writer since he first broke on the scene. Each story in The Red Empire is a dangerous gem of a tale. Here is the most original voice of modern horror.”

—Jonathan Maberry, New York Times Bestselling Author of Assassin’s Code and Dead of Night

Attic Clowns by Jeremy C. Shipp

[Redrum Horror #2]

BEWARE THE CLOWNS IN THE ATTIC—

LEST YOU BECOME ONE YOURSELF!

Bram Stoker Award nominee Jeremy C. Shipp spins 13 tales of horror and dark humor in this highly conceptual collection. Angels and demons, husbands and wives, tormented ghosts and an army of men made of soap—all of them trapped in attics of the mind, attics of heaven or hell, the attics we make for ourselves or with which we ensnare others.

Meet a paranoid astronaut whose jealousy drives him to extremes beyond murder…a miniature circus spawned from the mind of woman with too much control…the underling demon Globcow who desires redemption even more than the taste of human feet…

Men, women, children, and things beyond imagination all interconnect in ATTIC CLOWNS, where laughter is only the prelude to the bizarre and terrible.

“Jeremy C. Shipp’s boldness, daring, originality, and sheer smarts make him one of the most vital younger writers who have colonized horror literature in the past decade. Shipp’s modernist clarity, plus his willingness to risk damn near everything, put him up at the head of the pack with the very best.”

“Guy N. Smith is the grandmaster of B-movie style pulp horror and for good reason. He knows how to make it work and he keeps you glued to the page! I wouldn’t miss anything he writes.”

—J. F. Gonzalez, co-author of the Clickers series

“Like Stephen King and Dean Koontz, the prolific Smith is a master at building suspense.”

Hellborn by Gary Brandner

[Redrum Horror #4]

(April 2012)

ASTRAGOTH IS RISEN. SHE HAS BEEN CHOSEN.

A union of unspeakable terror awaits her—and there are only a few trusted companions she can turn to: her best friend, her doctor, her psychic, her lover.

But one of them is already possessed by the malevolently sexual demon Astragoth. To choose wrongly will damn her—and doom her young son…

From the sulfurous night of the centuries he has returned. He will have his bride—or he will level the earth. He is the HELLBORN!

“If you haven’t read Gary Brandner, you’re missing a treat!”

—Stephen King

Bottled Abyss by Benjamin Kane Ethridge

[Redrum Horror #5]

(June 2012)

YOU’VE TAKEN PAYMENT FOR A DEATH THAT DOESN’T BELONG TO YOU.

WHAT WERE THREE ARE NOW ONE—AND I AM FURY…

Herman and Janet Erikson are going through a crisis of grief and suffering after losing their daughter in a hit and run. They’ve given up on each other; they’ve given up on themselves. They are living day by day. One afternoon, to make a horrible situation worse, their dog goes missing in the coyote-infested badlands behind their property. Herman, resolved in preventing another tragedy, goes to find the dog, completely unaware he’s on a hike to the River Styx, which according to Greek myth was the border between the Living world and the world of the dead.

Long ago the Gods died and the River dried up, but a bottle containing its waters still remains in the badlands. What Herman discovers about the dark power contained in those waters will change his life forever…

Bottled Abyss is a rollercoaster of genre, technique, and emotion. It’s a novel that pushes boundaries and treads new territory. Whether you’re a fan of small-town horror, thrillers, character-driven horror, or apocalyptic fiction, you’ll find something in Bottled Abyss to love.” —FEARnet
