Fresh Fear: An Anthology of Macabre Horror
FRESH FEAR: An Anthology of Macabre Horror is a collection of horror selected by editor William Cook, from some of the genre's best writers of dark fiction. This anthology has 28 stories of horror that deal with the psychological and emotional realm of human fear.

In the introduction, a selection from W.J. Renehan's The Art of Darkness: Meditations on the Effect of Horror Fiction, we are reminded that, "Horror serves to reconnect us with our primal selves, provides temporary respite from the droning conditions of modern life." In Fresh Fear: An Anthology of Macabre Horror, tales steeped in psychological horror sit alongside visions of strange worlds and inner landscapes drenched in blood, penned by some of today's leading proponents of the craft. 'Quiet horror' sits comfortably next to more visceral portrayals of the monsters that lurk deep within the human heart.

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, famously once said, "where there is no imagination there is no horror" - the horror expressed by the authors in Fresh Fear show that imagination is indeed tantamount to excellent story-telling.

Prepare yourself for 28 tales of terror-inducing fiction.

Soal Man (A Romeo Soal Novel) (Volume 1)
The justice system in the city of Sachter is broken. Teenage punks with big guns, small minds and no ambition roam about the darkest neighborhoods in search of prey. They fuel their anger with codeine-soaked joints and cheap liquor and finance their habits through theft, extortion, arson, and murder. Enter Romeo Soal, a loner who has vowed to give his ravaged city a jump-start. Working just outside the crumbling edges of the legal system, Soal takes on child molesters, dope dealers, deadbeat dads, and repeat offenders who have slithered through the cracks in the courthouse steps. Soal does his best to help those in need, but when P. Anderton Hillis, a wealthy businessman, asks him to murder his wife, Soal flatly refuses. Hillis is not accustomed to being told “no,” and is determined to do anything to get his way, including kidnapping Soal’s best friend, Nick Finch. While trying to rescue Finch, Soal must endure beatings, avoid police and stop an arsonist who has turned pyromania into an art form, all while struggling with his infatuation for Hillis’ personal secretary.

Cool As Fuck
Jack Maneely, visual artist and former Hollywood urbanite, is paid a surprise visit one night by an old friend from the Hardcore Punk days of 1980s Los Angeles. Little does Maneely know that an innocent reunion with his buddy will lead to a trip through Hell — and the coldblooded murder of thousands of unwary souls. Mix the bizarre vision of Jamin Winans [Ink] with the quirky style of Raymond Chandler [The Big Sleep], and the gut-wrenching horror of Trent Haaga [Deadgirl], and you might just have the freshest insanity in town.

In contemporary Los Angeles, the hottest new fad is a bizarre, WXXX radio broadcast called "Death City" about Hollywood-related deaths. The shows achieved "cult" status in Southern California, and so has its cynically chic host, David Calvert, who lives on a luxurious beach estate in Malibu. But Calvert isn’t alone. He has a powerful associate – what's known as a "familiar" or demon companion. The creature, known as Verin, has given Calvert wealth and fame, but it's also destroying him with drugs, sexual violence, and murder. Ironically, the only person willing to help Calvert is his suicidal sister, Seton Boullan, who travels to L.A. to confront an evil that she never knew existed.

Nephilim Field Guide
Nephilim really exist. Today they are disembodied and called ‘unclean spirits’ or ‘demons’ or ‘devils,’ but before the Flood of Noah—scores of thousands of years ago—they reigned as kings and queens in the Earth, and were feared for their prowess and hatred of mankind—a hatred which mirrors the loathing their fathers, the Watchers or Fallen Angels, have for us—because we alone were created by God to steward and protect Earth. This book is designed to provide for you a clearer idea of what we face with when we speak of demons and the addictions, martial conflicts, mental illnesses, political doublespeak, religious jargon, disinformation, oppression, possession, and sexual abuse they routinely use as weapons for their one unified goal: to exterminate every last human from the face of Planet Earth—and if not exterminate, then divide our house with hatred for one another so that we are utterly disempowered. We have already allowed them to achieve so much by not subjecting our emotions to divine reasoning—by not following the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Are you prepared for war? Really? Because the Nephilim certainly are.

Horror from around the world is featured in the 2016 edition. New Zealand, The Netherlands, the Philippines--What is it with the Hoosier state that inspires authors from all over the world to dredge up their darkest visions to make readers tremble and shudder? Could it be the ghost towns that dot the landscape? Or do we fear the living ghosts that walk its cities, large and small, that breed and fester on dashed hope and creeping dread? Or do their dark writings mirror the thoughts we thought we had buried deep beneath layers of civility, exposing them for what they are, reflections of the darkness all around us, propagated through us and our offspring, who emulate and improve on our own wickedness?

The Vampires of Dreach Fola: A Non-Narrative of Extreme Horror
‘The Vampire genre of ‘speculative fiction’ was long overdue for a new vision, a new perspective, and a real kick in the ass. Few vampire tales choose to portray the creatures as powerful, savage, and complicated, despite their obvious attributes, which declare them as such. Many writers have made vampires powerful, but mostly to comic, romantic, or just plain ‘fan boy’ effect. Fewer writers have depicted them as savage beasts. Then, writers who choose to portray these creatures as calculated or aristocratic always lose the two traits of power and savagery. In Dracula, the brutality was primarily implied until the latter scenes, and even then, we could imagine far more than was shown. In this way Bram Stoker set the ‘vampire template’ to perfection, and artists have been trying and failing to match it ever since. That being said, when I read The Vampires of Dreach Fola, I got that certain feeling again—the sense that we are dealing with a very powerful and driven, savage aristocracy that exists in a way we cannot understand or experience. Not since Charles Williams, and Stoker before him, and Dante before him, has horror fiction of this depth and caliber been written. Scáth Beorh takes us on a journey many readers will deeply regret, the terror is so debilitating, the escape so narrow. Be warned. This is not reading you should undertake before bedtime... unless, of course, you can outwit your own nightmares.’ Miles Boothe, Editor
