Dark Regions Press is proud to announce that the new Dark Regions Double book containing The Invasion and The Valley by William Meikle is now available on the DarkRegions.com website in a Trade Paperback edition with free U.S. Shipping and discounted international shipping!

The Invasion

It started during a winter storm on the North Eastern Seaboard which brought with it a strange green rain. Where it fell, everything withered, died, and was consumed. The residents of remote outposts in Maritime Canada escaped the worst of the early damage, but that was a blessing in disguise, for they were left to watch as first North America, then the world, was subsumed in the creeping green carpet of terror.

And that was just the beginning. New life forms began to arise from the ooze, simple organisms at first, but multiplying with ever-increasing complexity. The few human survivors are faced with a full-scale invasion… and only radical measures will guarantee the survival of the human race.

“If you’re on the fence with this one, then climb down and give it a shot. The Invasion is great 50’s B-Movie fun and comes highly recommended.”
– Horror World


The Valley

In 1863, a group of mercenaries are hired to help out a mining town in Montana. They arrive to find the town empty and some of the buildings wrecked and strewn over a wide area. A new cave leads them to a land that time forgot, a high valley full of animals that are extinct elsewhere, but have thrived in the remote environment. But something else is loose in the land, something even older that has emerged from the cave system.

Soon the remaining men are fighting for their lives, and the lives of everything in the valley.
“This is pure pulp fiction goodness.”
– The Man-Eating Bookworm

The Watching by Paul Melniczek trade paperback edition now in stock!

The novella The Watching by Paul Melniczek is now in stock in trade paperback edition (first 100 copies signed by the author)!


A young girl witnesses something horrific from her bedroom window, a scene which snatches away her childhood innocence and replaces it with terror. Her life becomes a routine of desperation filled with shadows and darkness, void of any hope. Her home becomes her prison, her life an unending cycle of despair. And her nightmares are of the worst kind, ones which are not separated by the barrier between dream and reality.

“Slow butefficient creation of mood and unsettling spooky plot developments just out of clear sight, in many ways reminiscent of the 20th century classical stories by (the likes of) Algernon Blackwood, Arthur Machen, M.R. James, or the Irishman, J.S. LeFanu… Do yourself a favor and read THE WATCHING…and then underline that name: Paul Melniczek.” – Gene O’Neill, Author of Shadow of the Dark Angel


“There’s only a handful of young writers I will drop whatever I am doing to read…Paul Melniczek is one of them. Atmospheric, lyrical storytelling at its best. He always delivers.”
– Richard Chizmar, Cemetery Dance.
Literate, well-written, and scary as Hell Halloween treats. Each story resonates with an awareness and deep appreciation of past classics. The concluding tale, “The Attic Door,” is a richly compelling read, easily justifying by itself the cost of the collection. Highly recommended.
– Gene O’Neill, Stoker Award winning author of JADE and DEATHFLASH.
“Paul Melniczek writes about Halloween as if it’s his birthday, Christmas and the Fourth of July all rolled up into one!”
– Al Sarrantonio, author of over 40 books including the ORANGEFIELD cycle, BABYLON 5, and MASTERS OF MARS.

“This is a ghost story about ghost stories. It tells a tale about the telling of tales, and of the need, the absolute necessity, for stories that strike fear into men’s hearts – stories that delve into the unknown and the uncanny…”

… and in most of the stories in this collection, the telling of ghostly tales plays a vital part.
Here are stories told by firelight in isolated cottages, by lantern-light on storm-lashed beaches, by gaslight in scholars’ studies and clubrooms, or by twilight in libraries and in lonely asylum cells.
Here are stories of things that crawl stealthily across moonlit lawns, of legends it is better to remember, and of relics that are best left forgotten in the dark, of the malice of objects that are not as inanimate as they might seem, and of ancient tragedies re-enacted before helpless and horrified eyes.
Here are stories of…
Strange books unearthed from the college library foundations, and the dreadful shadowy form that seeks their return…
The man with no sense of humour who plays a joke that has deadly results…
The legendary gambling club where something far more precious than money is at stake…
The book of ghost stories whose contents prove more than usually absorbing for the unfortunate reader…
The solitary lighthouse in the middle of a treacherous sea, and the nightmare that awaits its keepers one stormy night, when someone comes knocking at the door…
The painter whose commission for an unseen sponsor produces horrifying portraits that capture more than a mere likeness of the subjects…
The old house with an alarming history, and the professor who is drawn to it in hope of fulfilling his overwhelming ambition to finally see a ghost…
And the gentlemen’s club where the patrons gather on Hallowe’en night to exchange ghoulish tales, and where a very special tale of horror must yet be told.
Here are stories of phantoms and demons, of those who are haunted by them, and those, like Dr. Lawrence, the antiquarian scholar, who seek them and face them. Here are stories of They That Dwell In Dark Places!

The Blooded Iklwa: A malevolent spirit is intent on blood. Can Carnacki identify the source of the attacks and stop the Zulu blade from its nightly haunting? Or will his client be forced to suffer a death of a thousand cuts?
The Larkhill Barrow: A pounding terror has been called up out of Salisbury Plain; an ancient darkness that will haunt your dreams.
The Sisters of Mercy: Battle hardened old soldiers lie sick abed in fear for their souls. Only someone with intimate knowledge of the powers of darkness can help them.
The Hellfire Mirror: The rituals of an infamous club have left their mark on a mirror, leading Carnacki into a fight to stop his own home from being overrun with the forces of darkness.
The Beast of Glamys: Danger to the daughter of a Scottish Lord leads Carnacki to a remote castle, and the uncovering of the secret behind a legend that has persisted for centuries.
The Tomb of Pygea: Something serpentine whispers in the dark under Admiralty Arch, and only Carnacki has the skills, and the nerve, to descend, and to listen.
The Lusitania: A cruise ship is berthed in Liverpool, deserted by passengers and crew, stuck in port until Carnacki can remove the cause of their terror; apparitions of disaster and shipwreck
The Haunted Oak: Ghosts of the recent dead walk beneath its spreading boughs and the Church needs Carnacki’s expertise. But some things are best left to take their course — natural, or supernatural.
The Shoreditch Worm: When one of the churches of London changes its chimes, something old starts to wake. Can Carnacki stop it before it is too late?
The Dark Island: Carnacki uncovers a gateway to a dark realm of magic and myth, where the far future of our planet can be touched and seen, if a man has the stomach for it.
Meet Carnacki: Ghosthunter.

PAIN

“Harry Shannon’s Pain is filled with razor-sharp wit and insights into human suffering that cut all the way to the bone. Highly recommended!” – Jonathan Maberry, NY Time Bestseller, and multiple Bram Stoker Award Winner
“Shannon’s impeccable pacing and eye for the terrifying will leave the reader shake and unsettled.” – Publisher’s Weekly

In the dead of night, there are footsteps in the hall . . .
In the dead of night, your past mistakes will haunt you . . .
In the dead of night, you hear a discordant tune . . .
In the dead of night, the nightingale sings . . .
Simon Strantzas, master of the subtle and the bizarre, returns with a dozen strange tales and eerie mysteries. From the shores of a remote oil-stained sound to deep within the familiar heart of suburbia, these are the songs of broken people who cannot find a way to fix themselves, who must search the dark for salvation. Like a siren, the nightingale sings them onward to face their end. But it sings for you too. A requiem in your honor. Because, for you, it is already too late.
Nightingale Songs is a dark gem. Strantzas demonstrates once again why he is so highly regarded amongst connoisseurs of the macabre and the fantastic.
– Laird Barron
Simon Strantzas displays a gift for evoking disturbing atmospheres and creating odd, frightening encounters with the uncanny . . .
– Lisa Tuttle
He does not show you the gate to this new Golden Age of weird fiction that is upon us, but leads you through it.
– Joseph S. Pulver
Strantzas deftly establishes ordinary and seemingly innocuous situations that spin out of the characters’ control and always end with an uneasy sense of menace, even when their resolution is ambiguous or cryptic.
– Publishers Weekly

“Like the subtly disquieting locations in which they take place–a suburban house obscured by weeds and dark butterflies, the basement of a former home grown suddenly unfamiliar, a sleep clinic where the patients never meet–Simon Strantzas’ elegant stories worry at the reader’s sense of certainty. The songs they sing won’t comfort you. But you will remember them.”
– Glen Hirshberg

“If you think that Mike Resnick writes science fiction, you can be forgiven. Lots of people share your delusion.

Certainly science fiction readers think so: they’ve nominated him for sf awards all over the world. He’s been on the Hugo ballot 15 times (13 times for writing, twice for Best Editor) and won it three times. Japanese fans have nominated him the Seinn-Sho–that country’s equivalent of the Hugo–5 times. A spanish jury, in giving him the Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya Prize, backed up their belief with a hefty cash award as well–a statement of conviction which should warm any writer’s heart.”

DARK REGIONS PRESS RAFFLE PRIZES

Anyone who is subscribed to our newsletter and places an order at the DarkRegions.com website during any time in November 2011 has a chance to win one of these three great prizes:
November 2011 Dark Regions Raffle GRAND prize:

One very lucky customer will win a leather-bound signed by both author and artist Deluxe Lettered Hardcover with slipcase edition of the collection of four Lovecraftian novellas, The Engines of Sacrifice by James Chambers with a retail value of $99!

In hidden places, they sleep and dream, and through their dreams they touch humanity–but their touch brings only the stains of horror, death, and madness…until the day the Old Ones return.
In The Engines of Sacrifice, acclaimed writer James Chambers delivers four nightmare novellas inspired by the Mythos of H. P. Lovecraft.
Investigation 37: In the late years of the Vietnam War, Lavender May runs away from home to search for freedom and peace in New York City, but instead, she finds only a world of magic, witchcraft, and lies.
The Ugly Birds: Only one thing could save Carmine Darabont’s comics magazine from going under: publishing the next chapter of the hit series “The Otherworlders.” But what dark secret drives its creator–Carmine’s ex-fiancÃÒ©–to refuse to deliver it?
The Hidden Room: At the height of the Cold War, Doctor Calvin Lenox is a member of the Nuclear Emergency Search Team. With his life spiraling into despair, he confronts the mystery of a runaway Soviet defector and the death of three men, only to find himself at the mercy of…the Faceless God.
The Engines of Sacrifice: What is the power of words? Can they control the fabric of reality? In a horrifying new world, underground author Rowley Cray struggles against a totalitarian government gone insane and the possibility that he can control the souls of the dead.


November 2011 Dark Regions Raffle 2ND prize:

Another very lucky customer will win a 100 Signed and Numbered Limited Hardcover edition of the novel Fifteen Minutes by William Ollie with a retail value of $45!

It is a ring, forged deep within the jungles of Ecuador, centuries ago.
Sixteen-year-old Simon had no idea what he was getting into when his mother packed him off to spend the summer at Granny’s house.
A cat’s eye ring with mystical powers.
The first thing he noticed was the hip clothing, the uncharacteristic sultry language and wild, futuristic hairdo. The second was the cool ring she wore.
The power to become another, to ward off an enemy by becoming that enemy.
Now his grandmother is dead, and if he hadn’t killed her, he’d certainly had a hand in her demise. He should’ve been horrified at what lay before him, dismayed at the part he had played. But he was neither of these things. He was excited, elated, because what lay before him was not his dead grandmother, but a mystery as deep as the meaning of life itself, an adventure of a lifetime.
One he can’t wait to embark upon.

November 2011 Dark Regions Raffle 3RD prize:
Last but certainly not least one lucky customer will win a trade paperback edition of the collection Beneath the Surface by Simon Strantzas!

Revised and expanded, the startling debut of Simon Strantzas resurfaces with tales of dark Gods and monsters of the flesh, emissaries from a world beneath our own, a world from where nightmares are born. Here, a man searches for truth in a universe that has forsaken him and pays the price for that knowledge, and a woman with out hope travels northward to find the place where her life fell to pieces and discovers of what she truly is made. They say no man is an island, no matter how much he wishes to be, but what then is that ship that sails toward him, and what pray tell is that lashed to its bow. These are tales that infect our dreams, tales of things that live beyond our understanding and watch us with malignant indifference. They are tales of grief, of loneliness, of guilt. Tales of the liminal places that separate our world from that other world, the world to which our souls are merely a gateway. Come inside and witness what resides in us all, deep down beneath the surface.



Remember, in order to have a chance at winning one of the above three prizes you must place an order on our website sometime during November 2011. Good luck!
