Lilly has been thrown into another dimension at the whim of an unnamed, undefined entity. To return to her life with Gabriele, she must find a new door, prevent a paradox and seek the truth from the past. The youngest vampire in existence, she will travel the world and centuries of vampire history to become the oldest of her kind with talents that humanize and terrorize those that would manipulate her for their ends. In the end, she must return to where she began and make choices between her first love, the tales of someone she’s had no reason to doubt, and an Über-vampire who reeks of evil and illness yet holds her heart. What is truth? What is instinct? Which acts will she commit that can preserve or will end those of her line?

Лондон. Респектабельный дом в престижном районе. И «нехорошая» квартира, в которую уже полстолетия никто не входит и не выходит.

Сету, ночному портье, тоже не следовало отворять дверь с номером 16, какие бы странные звуки ни проникали наружу. Не стоило переступать роковой порог и молодой американке Эйприл, неожиданно получившей квартиру в наследство от бабушки, чья кончина не менее таинственна, чем ее жизнь. И в чьем дневнике содержится намек на давнее событие, столь же страшное, сколь и необъяснимое...

Трогательная история любви и величайшего испытания, какое только может ей грозить. История, которая настолько покорила легендарного редактора Джейсома Кауфмана — сделавшего звезду из Дэна Брауна, а теперь работающего с Джойсом, — что права на экранизацию романа были проданы еще по рукописи.

Молодая английская пара приезжает на отдых в Пиренеи — и попадает под лавину. Выбравшись из-под снега, они возвращаются в гостиницу — и находят ее абсолютно пустой. В деревушке вокруг также ни единого человека. Им остается сидеть и ждать, когда же придут спасатели, но никто не приходит. Тогда они пытаются самостоятельно выбраться к людям, но всякий раз тропа выводит их к тем же самым пустым домам. Странные видения испытывают на прочность их любовь и рассудок, исподволь внушая, что никто не мог выжить после этой лавины, а законы природы перестали работать вовсе...

Jack finished university three years ago, but he's still stuck in a dead-end job in a sinister call-centre in Manchester. When the beautiful (and rich) Jennifer comes into his life he thinks he has finally found his ticket out of there. Trouble is that his boss is interested in Jennifer as well, and there's something strangely bestial about him...So when Jennifer buys Fell House, a mysterious old mansion out in remote Cumbria, a house party on a legendary scale seems like the perfect escape. But as the party spins out of control on a seemingly neverending night, they must face up to the terrifying possibility that not all their guests may be human - and some of them want to feed. An astonishing and innovative blend of horror, folktale and disturbing realism, The Leaping is the first instalment in what is shaping up to be a genre-defining series.

It is the time of the Great Depression.
Thousands have left their homes looking for a better life, a new life. But Marcus Connelly is not one of them. He searches for one thing, and one thing only. Revenge.
Because out there, riding the rails, stalking the camps, is the scarred vagrant who murdered Connelly's daughter. No one knows him, but everyone knows his name: Mr. Shivers.
In this extraordinary debut, Robert Jackson Bennett tells the story of an America haunted by murder and desperation. A world in which one man must face a dark truth and answer the question-how much is he willing to sacrifice for his satisfaction?

Telos Publishing is proud to announce the publication of a new horror novella by one of the supreme horror writers working in the UK today. Simon Clark's new chiller explores something nasty found in a village garden by an amateur archaeologist, something which has lain buried for centuries, and which has seen tribute paid to it by generations of local inhabitants. But what happens when the bones are removed and Humpty once more stalks the Earth ...

With an evocative cover by multiple award winning artist Vincent Chong, HUMPTY'S BONES is being published for the World Horror Convention in March 2010. The paperback edition contains HUMPTY'S BONES, a special introduction and author's notes by Simon Clark, and a new long short story called DANGER SIGNS, about a group of children who investigate an abandoned military bunker, and find that everything there is not quite as dead as they expected.

The secret history of Ponthe Oldenguine's lost BBC programs and cake stomping for dessert. Ponthe Oldenguine is one part fictional biography of a former television impresario who claims he's been hounded out of media history, and one part biography of the journalist commissioned to write his story. Where the tales merge, there is madness.

If you want a picture of the future, Trunka, imagine a boot stamping on a cake forever. Imagine just how glorious that would be.

Comic, curious, sometimes downright outrageous, Ponthe Oldenguine is a short novel in the style of slipstream, a brain-trip through the forgotten archives of the BBC: Captain Crowface, Radio Cardboard Fox, and The Town of Theberton are but a few of the seminal programs once confined to the rubbish bin and now exhumed for your reading pleasure. Part 1984, part Python, part slipstream, part realism, the life of Ponthe Oldenguine is an audacious attempt to restore the balance between sanity and insanity; illustrating what a thin line that can be. So, place your snout in the air, your hands on your tummy, and dance. But read it and believe it at your peril.

Стивен Кинг 4.4
Такова традиция: раз в несколько лет - иногда пять, а иногда и семь - Стивен Кинг публикует новый сборник произведений "малой прозы". Чаше всего это рассказы, но иногда - четыре (обязательно четыре!) повести. Так было с "Четырьмя сезонами", в состав которых вошла легендарная "Рита Хейуорт и спасение из Шоушенка". Так было с книгой "Четыре после полуночи" с ее прославленными "Лангольерами".
"Тьма, - и больше ничего" - очередной сборник из четырех повестей, завоевавший любовь читателей по всему миру.

Бонус! Подарок Стивена Кинга самым преданным фанатам - рассказ "Нездоровье", который Мастер включил в переиздание сборника.

Every gravedigger has a story to tell. Some are humorous, some poignant. But most gravediggers' tales have to be placed firmly in the category of Horror. When a young man is called upon to visit a cemetery, the old gravedigger's yarns chill his blood and invoke the darkest of nightmares, especially when the gravedigger hints at the terrible circumstances of Rose Burswick's death six decades ago. Her tale is so shocking and so terrifying that it cannot be fully revealed. But the gravedigger still can't resist giving this impressionable youth the scare of his life...Little does he know that the biggest scare is still to come. For Rose Burswick has become the most terrifying example of...ah, but the gravedigger must tell his own tale. He does it so well. "The Gravedigger's Tale" is the first journey into this volume's heart of darkness. Join award-winning writer Simon Clark as he presents an array of ghosts, eerie encounters and haunted landscapes to astonish the imagination - and invoke shivers aplenty...

In this dynamic new collection, Paul Finch draws on fact, legend, and myth to create five terrifying tales spanning the length and breadth of Great Britain, from the mountains of Snowdonia to industrial Lancashire, and from northern Scotland to a run-down district o Liverpool. Readers will encounter the shape-shifting Baobhan Sith and the horrifying 'Red Clogs'; search for the monstrous afanc of Wales; be haunted by the spectres of a war long past but not forgotten; and, in the spectacular title stry, take part in a treasure hunt that goes terrifyingly wrong. Walkers in the Dark is Paul Finch at his hard-hitting best, and a collection that will haunt you long after the last page has been turned.

He first cut his literary teeth penning episodes of the British TV crime drama THE BILL, but has also written extensively in the field of animation, contributing numerous scripts to various children's television shows. However, Paul is probably best known for his work in horror, and his numerous collections and short stories have been published on both sides of the Atlantic. His first collection, After Shocks (Ash-Tree Press, 2001), won the British Fantasy Award, and he again won the award in 2007 for his novella Kid. In 2007, Paul won the International Horror Guild Award for his story 'The Old North Road'. A second Ash-Tree Press collection, Ghost Realm, was published in 2008. Paul lives in Lancashire, northern England, with his wife Cathy and his children Eleanor and Harry.

Англия, день завтрашний. Страна в глубоком экономическом и моральном упадке; близится катастрофа. Новый Фестиваль Британии - беспомощная попытка поднять дух нации, все равно что пир во время чумы или оргия на пожаре. В Южном Лондоне специально под грандиозное действо расчищается площадка, сносится церковное кладбище. Из разрытых могил выбирается средневековый "зомби-вирус", называемый в просторечии "погибелью". Вот уже первые его жертвы, обезумев от голода, на кровавых зубах и ногтях понесли заразу дальше. И даже в смерти человек больше не находит упокоения - вирус обладает сверхъестественной способностью поднимать на ноги мертвых…

Среди авторов антологии произведения признанных мастеров жанра, таких как Кристофер Фаулер, Танит Ли, Пол Макоули. Ким Ньюман и другие.

This collection of stories from some of horror fiction’s best authors will glue you to the page, but watch out; it may leave you too afraid to take the metro to work.

In deep tunnels something stirs, borne on a warm breath of wind, reeking of diesel and blood. The spaces between stations hold secrets too terrible for the upper world to comprehend and the steel lines sing with the songs of the dead.

Jonathan Oliver has collected together some of the very best in new horror writing in an themed anthology of stories set on, and around, the New York subway, the London underground, the Metro and other places deep below.
