When the dead rise and walk the earth, the Undead seize their chance . . .
Nursing student Hannah Jordan knows things are bad when her mother dies while giving birth to a son. She knows things can’t get much worse when her mother gets back up and tries to have the baby for breakfast. When she’s forced to put her mother down like a rabid animal, only one certainty remains: Hannah will do whatever it takes to stay alive and protect her baby brother.
The only survivors out of a family of survivalists, Hannah and the baby ride out the zombie apocalypse in their family’s backyard bunker, emerging months later to find a world taken over by the newly self-appointed saviors of humanity: a race of vampires hellbent on preventing the extinction of their food supply.
Hannah does not welcome her new vampire overlords; but in a world where hordes of flesh-eating zombies roam the earth, she hasn’t much choice. When her medical training gets her picked by the vampires’ resident doctor to join his research team, she soon discovers that it’s more than just an opportunity to escape the prison camps with her brother. It’s also a chance to help restore humanity’s freedom through the development of a vaccine against the zombie virus–one that might also provide a cure for vampirism. But will they complete their work and save what’s left of humanity before they’re discovered and shut down?
From the author of Dominion of the Damned and Restless Spirits come four bite-sized tales of terror. Jean Marie Bauhaus spins a mesmerizing and haunting world in which monsters roam the post-apocalyptic streets of New York, scavenging for their next meal, vengeance finds room for compassion in surprising places, and even the vending machine down the hall begins acting shifty.
Also features the novelette Eucha Falls, a spellbinding tale of Lovecraftian horror.
A year following her brother’s mysterious disappearance, Melanie Fisher is determined to get answers. Her quest takes her to the site of an abandoned amusement park, where she finds a lost video camera containing evidence that her brother was losing his mind. As she digs deeper, she finds that the madness is catching. But is it really madness, or evidence of something much more real, and much more sinister than she could have ever imagined?
“There’s a witch buried in the cellar.”
So begins this tale about a local legend, a curse, and a creepy storm cellar.
A boy and his family move into a double-wide trailer on a plot of land in rural Oklahoma on which they plan to build their dream home, where a loan storm cellar is all that’s left of the house that once stood there. The story of what happened to the house–and all who’ve tried to build there since–is the stuff of legend. Is it fact, or fiction? And when mysterious happenings around the property begin to point to fact, is the neighbor boy merely playing pranks? Or is something more sinister at work? Something evil–and deadly.
Meg the pixie never had much interest in drab, boring humans; that is, until she spies skin of gleaming brass peeking out from beneath the sleeve of reclusive inventor Phineas Farnsworth.
