Titles By Tim Curran
Four girls lost in the big, bad woods.
Four girls hunted by primeval monsters.
Four girls trapped in a deadly, ancient ritual of sacrifice. To stay
alive until dawn will mean using every scrap of instinct and
skill they possess. Civilization no longer exists for them. They
must become just as bloodthirsty and predatory as the creatures
that stalk them.
Only one can survive.
The most cunning one.
Only she can be the bride of Blooding Night…
In the deepest, darkest depths of space, the stars are cold, malevolent eyes looking across a vast graveyard of the unknown, the unnameable, and the undead. Here the planets are tombs and the moons haunted catacombs. And here are extraterrestrial nightmares beyond imagining. There is no benevolent first contact. No utopian worlds. Only alien horrors.
Some of the stories included in Alien Horrors:
Flypaper – An expeditionary team is trapped inside an alien machine that offers them anything they want at a terrible price.
City of Frozen Shadows – The last living man on Earth hides in a gutted city, hunted by alien exterminators.
The Black Ocean – Astronauts adrift in a misty alien ocean are attacked by a gigantic predator.
Charnel World – Mercenaries track the most lethal life form in the galaxy in the green hell of the planet Xenos.
Migration – A mining camp is directly in the path of a migrating alien hive.
Stowaway -The crew of a starship is stalked by a shapeshifting alien bloodsucker.
Nameless rites. Half-human abominations. Formless spawn from black gulfs of horror. Nightmare conspiracies and unbreakable cults.
Thirteen tales of loathsome realities where mankind is an endangered species and primordial evil rises from sunken crypts and dark dimensions.
From the author of ALIEN HORRORS and HIVE comes DEAD SEA, a nightmarish Lovecraftian journey. When The Mara Corday, an aged freighter, enters the Graveyard of the Atlantic, nightmares becomes real. The crew finds themselves trapped in a realm where time doesn't exist and unimaginable horrors dwell. Lost in a becalmed sea, in a netherworld where evil manifests itself in hideous forms, the survivors of the Mara Corday have an eternity to find a way out - if they aren't killed first by the creatures stalking them.
"They expected torment and death. They expected thirst and drowning. They expected starvation. They expected suffering in all guieses, and yes they expected things to come at them out of the mist, the sort of things that had crawled alive and breathing from nightmares and cellars and dank, dark places. And on this matter, they were right." - Dead Sea
Some believe it is an entity that traveled to Earth, many thousands of years ago inside a hollow meteor.

Return of the Old Ones will only have one signed edition (deluxe slipcased hardcover) and will feature a similar stamp design to the popular Cthulhu head stamping featured on the World War Cthulhu hardcovers. It will be signed by all contributors and will feature the original color cover artwork by Vincent Chong as color end sheets.
The world is at war against things that slink and gibber in the darkness, and titans that stride from world to world, sewing madness and death. War has existed in one form or another since the dawn of human civilization, and before then, Elder terrors battled it out across this planet and this known universe in ways unimaginable.
It has always been a losing battle for our side since time began. Incidents like the Innsmouth raid, chronicled by H.P. Lovecraft, mere blips of victory against an insurmountable foe. Still we fight, against these incredible odds, in an unending nightmare, we fight, and why? For victory, for land, for a political ideal? No, mankind fights for survival.
Our authors, John Shirley, Mark Rainey, Wilum Pugmire, William Meikle, Tim Curran, Jeffrey Thomas and many others have gathered here to share war stories from the eternal struggle against the darkness. This book chronicles these desperate battles from across the ages, including Roman Britain, The American Civil War, World War Two, The Vietnam Conflict, and even into the far future.
This ebook edition features 22 interior illustrations (one accompanying each story)

Then raw meat falls from the sky.
People are at first offended, then intrigued.
Once tasting it, they can eat nothing else. It becomes an addiction that owns them body and soul, releasing pent-up frustrations, secret desires, and nameless horror. And when the meat runs out,the monsters are loose on Birch Street.
Into this hell zone of starvation, rot, and worms comes a conflicted, traumatized young woman. She’s returning home after a long, painful absence. She alone broods over the secret of the meat. Through her is deliverance from starvation.
But only at the most horrific price.
First come the flashing lights, then the heavy rains, high winds, and finally a total blackout. But that's only the beginning…
When the whipping black tentacles fall from the sky and begin snatching people at random, the denizens of Piccamore Way must discover the terrifying truth of what these beings have planned for the human race.

With the freezing winds and blowing snow has come an apex race of predators. They hide in the shadows. They crawl from the drifts. They use the storm as camouflage to hunt their human prey.
By morning, the town will be a morgue. Unless one small group of survivors can destroy the monsters in their midst. Horrors beyond imagining.
