“The Ghost of Passchendaele” is narrative about the First Battle of Passchendaele in the First World War. Told from the perspective of Private Shane Holdsworth, “Passchendaele” tells a brutal tale of horror, death, and the price of war.
“The Whisper” is set during World War Two. The main character is a sniper in the Dutch Resistance who sees a mysterious girl each time he kills.
When soldiers die, they are not judged. They are put aboard “The Train of Soldiers” where they ride to storm the gates of Hell itself!
“Omega” is set in modern Vietnam. Tim and his granddaughter, Omega, visit the museums and battle sites, but Tim soon finds that nothing is right and everything is amiss.
Two years ago, on the same day but miles apart, Finn Darby lost two of the most important people in his life: his wife Lorena, struck by lightning on the banks of the Chattahoochee River, and his abusive, alcoholic grandfather, Tom Darby, creator of the long-running newspaper comic strip Toy Shop. Against his grandfather’s dying wish, Finn has resurrected Toy Shop, adding new characters, and the strip is more popular than ever, bringing in fan letters, merchandising deals, and talk of TV specials. Finn has even started dating again.
When a terrorist attack decimates Atlanta, killing half a million souls, Finn begins blurting things in a strange voice beyond his control. The voice says things only his grandfather could know. Countless other residents of Atlanta are suffering a similar bizarre affliction. Is it mass hysteria, or have the dead returned to possess the living? Finn soon realizes he has a hitcher within his skin… his grandfather. And Grandpa isn't terribly happy about the changes Finn has been making to Toy Shop. Together with a pair of possessed friends, an aging rock star, and a waitress, Finn races against time to find a way to send the dead back to Deadland… or die trying!

The House on the Borderland is a supernatural horror novel by William Hope Hodgson. He went beyond the existing ghost story and gothic molds, synthesizing a new cosmic horror that made a huge impact on later writers of weird tales, notably H. P. Lovecraft.
The two gentlemen Tonnison and Berreggnog head to a village in Ireland for a week's fishing. There they discover the ruins of a strange house and the diary of the house's former occupant, the words on its torn pages hinting at an evil far beyond anything that has existed in this world before.
“The House on the Borderland (1908) — perhaps the greatest of all Mr. Hodgson’s works — tells of a lonely and evilly regarded house in Ireland which forms a focus for hideous otherworld forces and sustains a siege by blasphemous hybrid anomalies from a hidden abyss below. The wanderings of the Narrator’s spirit through limitless light-years of cosmic space and Kalpas of eternity, and its witnessing of the solar system’s final destruction, constitute something almost unique in standard literature. And everywhere there is manifest the author’s power to suggest vague, ambushed horrors in natural scenery.”
Annie, una bambina di sette anni, comincia a essere colta da strane crisi durante le quali sogna eventi passati che lei non ha vissuto e tragici fatti che puntualmente si verificano. Quasi tutti considerano semplici coincidenze queste visioni premonitrici, ma quando la piccola contribuisce al ritrovamento di un cadavere, la polizia si arrende all’evidenza. Chi è il responsabile dell’omicidio?
Comprised of seven short stories set during varying points of an undead apocalypse, this collection explores the roles sex and sexuality may play in determing survival in this nightmare landscape. Stories include Dance With the Dead, Night of the Living Furries, Tender is the Nightmare, Tiffany Shepis & the Fanboy of the Apocalypse, Hips, and Skinning the Freshy. Sex… Zombies… Let the infection begin.
Even in a world filled with the living dead, sex exists. A stripper hell-bent on survival faces off against the living dead in a no-holds barred dance of death. A lone soldier, separated from his unit, finds that the ghosts of his past may very well be more dangerous than a hotel overrun with zombified furries. A boy faces his inner demons, ready to do anything to be accepted by his peers. A woman, captured by slavers, finds out there are worse horrors than the walking dead. From the first day of the undead apocalypse to points far in the future, this book explores the roles sex and sexuality play in determining survival. Sex… zombies… love. The line between them is not as clear as you might think. Let the infection begin.
The old house knew the taste of blood. It was as familiar with screams as it was the wind whistling through the desolate pine forest in which it hid. For within its walls, a sadistic evil had taken root in the minds of its residents: a family whose fiendish desires demanded blood, tears, and pain to quench their savage thirst for brutality.
Enter Matt And Mona: young newlyweds with the misfortune to have car trouble at the wrong place, on the wrong night…. As good samaritans lead them into the isolation of the woods, no one realized a nightmare was about to be unleashed…
Prepare yourself. It’s about to get very, very bloody.
