Titles By Jay Caselberg
Extinction Notice is packed with everything from humor and political satire to romance and horror, even poetry and songs, all with at least a dash of science fiction. Most stories are suitable for all ages, but the handful of stories containing adult language have a warning at the top.
These speculative fiction stories illustrate, in a highly entertaining way, what sorts of horrible calamities can happen in the future if humans don’t act soon to stop global warming. While some of the stories show the disastrous effects of climate change, other stories provide examples of ways we can mitigate climate change and make the future of our planet more livable.
Profits from sales of Extinction Notice will be donated to environmental charities.

Up in the attic, a bedtime story outlives its storyteller.
A city boy visits his country cousins and stumbles on a terrifying family secret.
From a film set in the Arizona desert, to an overgrown rambling old house in the Florida swamps, to the dusty streets of a small Mexican town, the stories in this volume plunge the reader into the shadows of a world almost forgotten by modern fables of cold science and bright sunlight. They are the brushed over voices who call a warning to those who would comfort themselves in the thought that monsters aren’t real, and those things can’t happen here. Stories We Tell After Midnight Volume 2 offers up tales of revenge, of hunger, and of the horror that stalks you just beyond the glow of your cell phone light, but only to those who dare turn the page…

What did you find there in the ground, Robin, beneath your shovel blade? Could it be the answer to everything you've ever wanted?
From deserted islands to an isolated cabin in the Carolina woods, from an Arizona film set to a small Mexican town, from a bloody riverbank in Vietnam to the coal-choked streets of Cheapside, the Stories We Tell After Midnight series has invited the reader into a world of shadows almost forgotten by the cold glare of the modern world.

About the Authors
“If you will it, it is no dream!” as Theodor Herzl said: and no doubt he had just such an anthology in mind. With all royalties going to charity, Jews vs Aliens and its companion volume, Jews vs Zombies, are must-have anthologies.
Immerse yourself in the unnerving world of the paranormal with these tales of horror curated by Bram Stoker Award-nominated Anthony Rivera and Sharon Lawson, editors of the #1 Amazon bestseller Peel Back the Skin and the critically acclaimed Dark Visions series.
It’s here in Death’s Realm where the spirits of the dead and monstrosities that should never exist torment the souls of the living they’ve left behind in sixteen disquieting tales of the supernatural from horror's modern masters.
From dangerous specters summoned from beyond the veil with treacherous intent on all of humankind, to a young boy with dangerous special powers that seem directed from beyond the grave, Death's Realm delves into the abnormal, the ghostly and the infernal.
It's only here that a grieving son's demon can beckon him to a secluded cemetery plot in the dead of night, where a preternatural murder-for-hire has extreme supernatural repercussions, and when the revenant of a dead mother seeks vengeance on her dying daughter. And there is so much more.
With horror fiction from two-time Bram Stoker Award-winning author and World Fantasy Award nominee Hank Schwaeble; the award-winning, Bram Stoker Award-nominated and Shirley Jackson Award-finalist Stephen Graham Jones; the Bram Stoker Award and Thriller nominated JG Faherty; editor-in-chief of the highly respected Jamais Vu magazine Paul Michael Anderson; critically-acclaimed authors Jay Caselberg and John F.D. Taff; emerging masters of modern horror Aaron Polson, Gregory L. Norris and Martin Rose; co-authors known for their extremely disturbing horror fiction, Simon Dewar and Karen Runge; critic favorites Brian Fatah Steele, John C. Foster and Jane Brooks; the twisted, Lovecraft-influenced Rhoads Brazos; and recognized authors of literary fiction Jay O'Shea and Matthew Pegg.
Proudly presented by Grey Matter Press, the multiple Bram Stoker Award-nominated independent publisher.
Rip open the veil to Death's Realm and let the wrong ones in.
