From a classic possessed puppets story, to mysterious green mists and gods wreaking havoc, to an old-style Hollywood ghost and other supernatural horrors, this collection brings you stories you’ll enjoy from skilled horror fabulists such as Marsheila Rockwell & Jeffrey J. Mariotte, John F.D. Taff, Tom Johnstone and others.

Wilburn: The Case for D. Alexander Ward

We wanted to share the comments made recently about one of our Shadows Over Main Street editors, which were posted by writer/blogger Jay Wilburn.

The blog post, titled “The Case for D. Alexander Ward,” can be accessed by clicking here.

We couldn’t agree more that our two Shadows editors, Messrs. Ward and Murano, have “broke[n] new ground with the quality and scope of their projects.”

Rue Morgue Reviews Blue Eel

The August 2016 issue of print horror magazine Rue Morgue (Issue #169) has just hit newsstands, and it has a review of Blue Eel!

Here’s an excerpt:

“Lorne Dixon’s Blue Eel is an engaging and offbeat mixture of police procedural, eldritch mysticism and monster story wrapped up in a tale of redemption.”

Sounds great to us!

Remember, Blue Eel is available in hardcover, paperback and Kindle editions.
