After the death of his wife, Bruce Holden moves to the quaint coastal fishing village of Mulberry with his son, Jack. He is hoping for a fresh start, but the locals greet their arrival with mixed reactions, from friendliness to open hostility. Bruce puts it down to them being outsiders, but when a tourist is killed while swimming, the real horror is unleashed. There’s something ravenous in the sea. Something that’s coming ashore in search of prey. Now Bruce and Jack find themselves embroiled in a nightmare where humankind is no longer at the top of the food chain.
Praise for Shaun Jeffrey:
“With Kult, Shaun Jeffrey hits one out of the park with this creepy, character-driven thriller that starts with a jolt, stays in the fast lane, and plunges into the darkest territory of the human mind. It’s a bumpy ride through nightmare country.” — Jonathan Maberry, multiple Bram Stoker Award winning author of PATIENT ZERO and PUNISHER: NAKED KILL.
“Jeffrey, one of horror’s rising young stars, has really hit his stride with THE KULT. Part mystery, part police procedural, part horror story, it’s one thrilling ride. Jeffrey had me guessing at the killer’s identity half a dozen times, and the reveal, when it finally came, knocked me over. You don’t want to miss this one!” –Nate Kenyon, author of THE REACH and THE BONE FACTORY.
Praise for Evilution by Shaun Jeffrey:
“A classic thriller from a talented new author” — Guy N. Smith, author of NIGHT OF THE CRABS and THE SLIME BEAST.
“Shaun Jeffrey’s debut novel is haunting, disturbing and spooky as hell” — Tim Lebbon, Stoker Award winning author of FACE.
Announcing Multiplex Fandango by Weston Ochse!
Available for preorder in May is a best-of collection from Weston Ochse with an introduction from Joe R. Lansdale and cover artwork by Vincent Chong!
Multiplex Fandango is subtitled “A Weston Ochse Reader” for good reason. This collection contains a comprehensive representation of short fiction and novellas by the Bram Stoker award winner and Pushcart Prize nominee, including his recent powerful Stoker finalist short story, “The Crossing Of Aldo Rey” and his brilliant Stoker finalist novella, Redemption Roadshow, as well as acclaimed favorites, “Catfish Gods” and “Big Rock Candy Mountain”. Also included in this omnibus volume of sixteen short stories and novellas are six original new works of short fiction written especially for this collection including such future classics as “Tarzan Doesn’t Live Here Anymore”, “Low Men Weeping”, and the stunning, “City Of Joy”.
“This is a book that could almost have been written for me.”
– Joe R. Lansdale on Multiplex Fandango
“Ochse succeeds in creating a complex plot that casts a brutal overwhelming spell.”
– Tom Piccirilli on Scarecrow Gods
“Brilliantly rendered. What was so impressive about the piece was that I did not doubt the incredible heroism of the protagonist… nor his motivation.
– Andrew Vachss on “Family Man”
“This is better than the hype. I don’t want to go overboard, but stories in the book will remind many readers of the good stuff by Edward Lee and Joe Lansdale and probably Bill Faulkner. There were times, reading some of them, when I was put in mind of Flannery O’Connor.” – Richard Laymon on Scary Rednecks and Other Inbred Horrors
“Vampire Outlaw of the Milky Way is what would happen if Ray Bradbury and Lin Carter got together to write a space opera. Only Weston Ochse could write something like this. In lesser hands, it would fall apart. Weston is one of the best authors of our generation.”
– Brian Keene on Vampire Outlaw of the Milky Way
“Make way for a new powerhouse on the block. Hard work and formidable skills have already shot-gunned Ochse to the front of the genre’s exciting new pack of writers. With creative brawn, brains, and balls, the guy’s locked, loaded, and switched to full-auto, blazing away with his unique and original brand of modern horror, one of the few new writers, I’d say, who will help re-define the field for the future.”
– Edward Lee on Weston Ochse

The brand new novel Dark Surge by Gina Ranalli, trade paperback edition now up for preorder!
Within just 48 hours the leather-bound signed by both author and artist Deluxe Thirteen Hardcover with slipcase edition of our latest novel Dark Surge by Gina Ranalli sold out. The trade paperback edition is now available for preorder on the Dark Surge product page!
Recently divorced Tess Waters is an attractive young professional woman and mother of Emily, her precocious six-year-old daughter. Tess cannot understand why her ex-husband, Josh, who obviously still cares for his ex and madly loves his little daughter, had to spoil their marriage by having a torrid affair with another woman.
There’s certainly no love lost between Tess Waters and the “other woman”–Josh’s now live-in girlfriend, the mysterious and highly sexual Gillian. Indeed, Tess assumes that her divorce has been caused by Josh following the compulsions of his…”lower” brain, rather than his primary one. Indeed, Josh does seem mesmerized by the beautiful Gillian, who seems to be able to anticipate and fulfill his every desire.
But, as the relationship between Josh and Gillian starts to become more serious, simmering tensions between Tess and Gillian, and resentments concerning raising Emily boil over. Suddenly, Tess’ home begins to be subjected to a bizarre infestation of flies. The infestation quickly spreads and soon Tess and her daughter are fighting for their very lives and souls against a powerful supernatural force that seeks to destroy them. Someone’s hiding a dark, deadly and ancient secret, and Tess’ chance meeting with a small band of runaway teens living on the streets, one of who’s a practicing Wiccan witch, seems to offer their only hope of survival. Can this strange alliance between street-teens and soccer mom be sufficient to defeat a relentless and implacable unearthly enemy and the nightmarish dark surge of ravening deadly insects under its control that threaten to engulf them all?
Praise for Gina Ranelli:
Praise For Fallen Trees:
“Genre fans nowadays have to turn over a lot of stones to find M.R. James, Robert Wise, Algernon Blackwood and Shirley Jackson’s presence in their horror. Well, they need look no further than House of Fallen Trees.”
– Garrett Cook for Withersin
– Dread Central
“It’s practically screaming to be made into a movie. It has that good old-fashioned quality but doesn’t tread into outdated territory.”
– Jordan Krall, author of Fistful of Feet and King Scratch
“A creepy story with strong characters and a little early Stephen King influence.”
– David Agranoff, author of The Vegan Revolution . . . with Zombies
Praise For Suicide Girls:
Suicide Girls in the Afterlife is weird and fun and hauntingly bittersweet. I read it in one evening and enjoyed it very much.
– Brian Keene, author of “The Rising” and “The Conqueror Worms”

Our release includes a brand new Tenderloin story, Black Tar, Red Alien!
‘The Tenderloin,’ a real area to be found within the city of San Francisco, where the living is very hard and dying all too easy for the unfortunate people bound by circumstance, desire, or need to live there. Captured in all its varied nuance within the brilliant prose of author Gene O’Neill, the area and its inhabitants come alive for readers. Moreover, the author seamlessly weaves fascinating strands of dark fantasy and outright horror throughout each story.
When initially released, the original collection of eight short stories by author Gene O’Neill, who’s been aptly described as “the greatest living storyteller,” received numerous accolades, including winning the Horror Writer’s Association Bram Stoker Award for Best Collection of 2009. Taste Of Tenderloin is surely one of the seminal and most powerful story collections of the first decade of the Twenty-First century. Dark Regions Press, in conjunction with author Gene O’Neill, is pleased to present the only and definitive very limited hardcover deluxe lettered and numbered editions of this modern classic. The new book, limited to only twenty-six (26) Deluxe Lettered copies and One Hundred and Fifty (150) numbered copies, includes the entire text of the original edition, along with stunning new cover art by the talented Wayne Miller, with extensive brand new interior art by the acclaimed artist Erin Wells, a new Introduction by noted author and Texas police Se rgeant Joe McKinney, a new Editor’s Foreword by Norman L. Rubenstein, and the worldwide premiere of a brand new, never before published, Tenderloin short story by Gene O’Neill.

“Haunting, lyrical…, and plunges the reader into the darker side of San Francisco. Gene O’Neill’s deft, authentic prose resonates with the weight of sad reality, erasing the line between knowledge and fear.”
– Publishers Weekly (Starred review)
“His words bristle with a muscular intensity that strengthens any book or magazine lucky to contain him.”
– Scott Edelman, editor of SF Weekly and Sci-FI Channel Magazine

New Introduction by Joe McKinney
New Cover art by M. Wayne Miller
New Interior art by Erin Wells

Our best selling novel Wolfhunt by Jeff Strand now available in trade paperback edition!
We are excited to announce that the trade paperback edition of the novel Wolfhunt by Jeff Strand is now in stock and ready to be shipped with free USA shipping and discounted international shipping!
Meet George and Lou, thugs for hire. The kind of intimidating-yet-friendly guys who will break your thumbs, but be nice about it.
Their latest assignment is to drive across Florida to deliver some precious cargo to a crime lord. The cargo: a man in a cage. Though Ivan seems perfectly human, they’re warned that he is, in fact, a bloodthirsty werewolf.
George and Lou don’t believe in the supernatural, but even if they did, it’s daytime and tonight isn’t the full moon. It’s just a simple transport job, albeit one that carries severe consequences if they screw it up. Their instructions are straightforward: Do not open the cage. Do not reach into the cage. Do not throw anything into the cage.
And they don’t. Unfortunately, Ivan doesn’t play by the usual werewolf rules, and the thugs find themselves suddenly responsible for a vicious escaped beast. One who can transform at will. One who enjoys killing in human form as much as he enjoys killing as a monster.
If George and Lou want to save their careers, dozens of people, and their own lives, they need to recapture him. Because Ivan the werewolf is in the mood for a murder spree…

KUTTER by Jeff Strand
Charlie Stanlon is a serial killer. A ghastly, vicious sociopath who chains women to a table in his basement and tortures them to death. He has no friends. He has no family. He despises his co-workers. His only pleasure in life is to cause pain and terror.
Until the day he finds an adorable Boston Terrier and takes it home…
REMAINS by Michael McBride
On May 21st, 2008, seven graduate students in Religious Studies set out from the University of Colorado in search of God. Armed with only their faith and the scriptures, they traveled to the western slope of the Rocky Mountains. None of them were ever heard from again.
On November 13th, 2010, their families set off to recreate their final days in hopes of discovering their fate…
“[McBride] displays pitch-perfect pacing and creates interesting, believable characters, resulting in a tale that’s gripping and yet at times also philosophical.”
– Robert Morrish, Cemetery Dance
“Jeff Strand beautifully crafts a heart-wrenching tale of a man and his dog…and his unquenchable thirst for murder.”
– Desmond Reddick, Dread Media
“For my money, Kutter is easily the most perfect blending of dark (really dark) humor, horror, and psychological suspense that Strand has produced to date.”
– Elizabeth A. White
