A Novella by Laura Cooney & L.L. Soares

A mysterious "green tsunami" has swept the planet–and nothing will be the same as both living and inanimate things begin to evolve into a new horrifying reality. The story is told entirely via e-mails between a man and his wife, separated by the catastrophe, describing the terrors they must face as they strive to survive.

"Cooney and Soares strike with this strange, incredibly bleak apocalyptic novella. ... Fans of apocalyptic stories will enjoy this fresh, truly unusual take on the End Times." -- Nick Cato

A Novella by Lisa Mannetti

"With prose that is intriguing, literary, and always inviting, Mannetti is one of the few authors that I never seem to get enough of. ... THE BOX JUMPER proves once again that, when it comes to historical fiction, nobody does it better than Lisa Mannetti." — Horror World

“In Lisa Mannetti’s magical THE BOX JUMPER, readers are treated to intriguing premises and finely wrought characterizations rooted in the hazy past of a bygone America. As usual, Mannetti’s driving narrative propels this fascinating portrait of illusionist Harry Houdini and the strange goings on in and around—even beyond—his world. Highly recommended to all who love a great story, excellent writing, and memorable characters with a haunting literary flair.” — Jason V. Brock, author of Milton’s Children and Disorders of Magnitude 

What horror anthology on body enhancements wouldn’t include gross-out fiction? This book has it in spades. But, this collection of stories goes far beyond that. Here you will also find science fiction, surreal fiction, fantasy, and even a full serving of dark humor. Disturbing, perverse, often gut-wrenching (pun intended) stories—a must for your horror library. This, the third anthology in the “Zippered Flesh” series, contains nineteen chilling tales by some of the best horror and suspense writers today. Definitely not for the squeamish!



Expecting the usual? Please don’t. You won’t find haunted houses, spirit infested graveyards, demonic poltergeists, or possessed objects in these pages. It’s been said that there are no haunted places, only haunted people. That’s who you’ll find here, the haunted ones. A maintenance technician in Alaska, an English thief, a young couple on a road trip across America, an astronaut on a one-way ride to Jupiter, an Irish gravedigger, and dozens more. All victims of an otherworldly infection, all tormented by a plague of shadows.  
This anthology includes stories and poetry by the members of the Written Remains Writers Guild, as well invited, renowned guest authors.
