DEADBEAT by Guy N. Smith

Redrum Horror #3 is on its way! DEADBEAT by cult horror icon Guy N. Smith (Night of the Crabs) is coming mid-March, and you can pre-order it now at Barnes & Noble.


What is the compulsive beat that seems to invade the very soul of listeners with violent, terrifying visions? Having sent a demo tape to Donna Caryl, the lead singer of the Necromancers, Stephanie Insel is invited to meet the star. Very quickly Stephanie and her friend, Eddie Bannon, are enmeshed in the secretive world of this terrifying new band. When they find themselves becoming major participants in the demonic cult of Deadbeat, they uncover the evil intentions of Caryl and her neophytes.

DEADBEAT…once you hear it, you can never forget it!

“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.”



Introducing Abattoir Press, an imprint of Redrum Horror

We’re expanding! In addition to the numbered line of terrific horror titles in the Redrum Horror library, we are now rolling out Abattoir Press, a new imprint that kicks off in February with VIA DOLOROSA by Ronald Malfi.

Available for the first time in paperback and e-book, VIA DOLOROSA is a tense exercise in “quiet horror” that Ghost Writer Literary Reviews calls “a pulse-quickening, brain-teasing adventure. Writing doesn’t get any better than this.”


Lieutenant Nick D’Nofrio is back from the war, but he is not home. The dead are on the other side of the world, but they haunt him daily. He tries to be a husband to his new wife, Emma, but he can’t connect with other people. He is obligated to paint a mural at the Paradis d’Hôtel, but only horrors spring from his imagination. Nick suffers for his art, for himself, for the guilt of his painful secret…

The memory of war follows Nick D’Nofrio to the the Paradis d’Hôtel where he encounters a spectral Spanish beauty, a mysterious jazz musician, and a ghost from his troubled, violent past. As his marriage crumbles and his sanity spins out of control Nick is forced to face his demons, the worst of which may be himself.


“A remarkably versatile writer.”
Brian Keene, author of Ghoul and Dark Hollow

“Malfi’s use of language and his power of description are sublime.”
Fear Zone

Available for the first time in trade paperback and e-book from Abattoir Press in February, 2012!

Jonathan Maberry on The Red Empire and Other Stories by Joe McKinney

New York Times Bestselling Author Jonathan Maberry (Assassin’s Code, Dead of Night) has some very high praise for Joe McKinney’s THE RED EMPIRE AND OTHER STORIES, due out in January from Redrum Horror.

“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.”

Don’t miss it!
