 The Shadows Have Returned!

One of 2015’s best-selling and most celebrated horror anthologies is back in print. That’s right, the second edition of Shadows Over Main Street: An Anthology of Small-Town Lovecraftian Terror is here!

Shadows Over Main Street demonstrates most convincingly that fear lurks in our towns and villages, in darkened alleys, and in the shadowy human heart. This anthology represents a dynamic cross section of contemporary horror.”

Laird Barron, Bram Stoker Award® winning author of The Beautiful Thing That Awaits Us All

“A masterful blend of stories fit for both die-hard Lovecraft fans and readers new to the genre. Each and every tale is wickedly delicious.”

Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of Fall of Night and V-Wars.

With stories and poems by: Stephanie Wytovich, Nick Mamatas, Kevin Lucia, Chesya Burke, Brian Hodge, Mary SanGiovanni, James Chambers, Tim Curran, Aaron Polson, T. Fox Dunham, Richard Thomas, Gary Braunbeck, Adrian Ludens, Rena Mason, Lucy A. Snyder, Cameron Suey, Lisa Morton, Jay Wilburn, John Sunseri, and Josh Malerman. With a foreword by the legendary Ramsey Campbell.

What do you do when the world

around you goes insane?

Cover image of "Florie Detail"

During a routine drunk and disorderly arrest, Deputy Sheriff Yarbo’s police radio and onboard computer both go crazy. Before they fail completely, he hears shouted fragments of conversation that tell him that something is wrong—very wrong—back in town. 

Cut off from all communication with his fellow officers, and stuck with an unruly prisoner in a rural part of the county, Yarbo has to figure out why the world seems suddenly to have gone mad—before it’s too late.

Long suspected of guilt in his daughter Madeline’s disappearance, Branson Turaco takes an abrupt turn in his life when a lock of Madeline’s hair is found in a child predator’s home. Branson buys an unlicensed handgun, enlists the help of a disgraced filmmaker and a desperate intern, and heads out onto the open road.

Clinging to the dim hope that his daughter might still be alive, Branson finds himself pursued by a team of post-human assassins with glowing skin and a symbiotic relationship with a mysterious species of eel. Lost in a psychedelic world of uncontrollable substances and bizarre evolutions, he must decide how much he is willing to sacrifice in order to unravel the mystery of Madeline’s disappearance.

What remains of a man once he sheds his humanity in the name of vengeance?

“What are you going to do?”

“I’m going to kill all the angels.”
