Bestial
Beneath the dim light of a full moon, the population of Cincinnati mutates into huge, snarling monsters that devour everyone they see, acting upon their most base and bestial desires. Planes fall from the sky. Highways are clogged with abandoned cars, and buildings explode and topple. The city burns. Only four people are immune to the metamorphosis-a smooth-talking thief who maintains the code of the Old West, an African-American bank teller who has struggled her entire life to emerge unscathed from the ghetto, a wealthy middle-aged housewife who finds everything she once believed to be a lie, and a teen-aged runaway turning tricks for food. Somehow, these survivors must discover what caused this apocalypse and stop it from spreading. In their way is not only a city of beasts at night, but, in the daylight hours, the same monsters returned to human form, many driven insane by atrocities committed against friends and families during. Now another night is fast approaching. And once again the moon will be full.

The School That Screamed
Dolly Elliott's earned its reputation as a school for bad girls. Nestled within an isolated forest outside of the London suburbs, it's the last stop for students who have been expelled from every other school in Europe. For the right price, the administrators guarantee a diploma for any girl, no matter how rebellious. But, the halls of Dolly Elliott's are haunted by more than the laughter of the young women earning their degrees. At night, the wail of a baby can be heard from the cellar and foul odors permeate the dorms. Glimpses of blinded nuns disturb the daily routine of the young women. And something is moving from the other side of the mirrors, seeking a way into our world. It hates the living, especially the girls it jealously watches. When Laura Pennington arrives as a new student, she carries secrets, a past that led to her fleeing her last school screaming in terror. On the same day, Sarah Stallworth begins teaching the young women of Dollie Elliott's, and she brings her own baggage. When a young maid is horribly mutilated and a teacher is murdered, they launch an investigation into what roams the halls of the school at night. The past is trying to intrude upon the present, attempting to force its way into the new century. Can Laura and Sarah learn the terrible truth about the school before more women die? THE SCHOOL THAT SCREAMED is a loving homage to the over-the-top exploitation films that were imported from Europe in the 1970's, a drive-in flick brought to vivid life on the page. Full of sex, sin, slashings, and secrets, it delivers a grindhouse sized dose of terror and laughter.

Out of the Woods
EDITORIAL REVIEWS From Publishers Weekly "Just before Halloween 1983, a mental hospital in rural Pennsylvania that's about to be shuttered gets one final patient: Gary McCoy, who claims to be the harbinger of an unspeakable horror. Dr. Robert Gaskell sees a chance to make some money writing about McCoy's delusions, but soon his greatest ambition is to stay alive in a horror story that uses familiar tropes to good effect. Using Gaskell's first-person voice to keep the reader close to the terror, Carl (the Werewolf Apocalypse saga) provides vivid descriptions that will make even veteran horror readers wince. Gaskell is imperfect but likable, balancing ambition, love, and his own demons. In this world, everything Lovecraft wrote about is real, and the story builds to a climax with the protagonists trapped between cosmic creatures and insane, deformed humans who worship them. Horror aficionados will thrill to the heartbreaking final moments of this fast-paced novel, which is perfect for a dark and stormy night."

Out of the Woods starts with a very disturbed new patient being admitted to St. Michael's Hospital for Mental Illness, just before the facility is about to be closed down for good. He swears the world is about to end -- but it's just the rantings of a madman. Or is it? From there, the story surges forward like a giant serpent, moving at its own breakneck pace, daring us to follow. I loved this book, and William D. Carl is one helluva conductor on this crazy train speeding right to the heart of doomsday!" -- L.L. Soares, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of LIFE RAGE "This is a Halloween tale that will rattle you to your core with terror that ratchets up a few notches with each page. Breathlessly paced scare scenes, vividly realized characters, and a skin-crawling sense of dread...Out of the Woods is one hell of a page-turner. William D. Carl has written a future classic of fright literature. " -- Brad Carter, author of THE BIG MAN OF BARLOW, (DIS)COMFORT FOOD, and ONLY THINGS "Carl is an amazing storyteller without pretense. His previous books, BESTIAL (2010, Gallery Books / Simon & Schuster) and PRIMEVAL (2011, Permuted Press) brought a new approach to the tired werewolf trope and I suspect readers will discover he's done the same with the asylum sub-genre." PRODUCT DETAILS OUT OF THE WOODS has been described as Ed Lee meets HP Lovecraft via John Carpenter's Assault on Precinct 13. A psychiatrist at a closing mental hospital begins treating a young man who comes from a savage village where families have been inbred until a preacher/portal has been created to allow the Old Gods back into our world. On the last night the mental hospital is open, the villagers attack, attempting to get their portal back. Is the man mad or is this the beginning of the apocalypse?

After the Lycan Virus went airborne in Cincinnati, transforming the infected into horrible beasts, it left a city decimated and a populace shaken. A cure was quickly discovered, but outbreaks continued to escalate in other parts of America. In response, the government formed an elite group of soldiers to hunt down rogue werewolf clans. For General Taylor Burns and head sniper Nicole Truitt, the job has been a tough one, and now they're headed for New York City for some necessary rest and relaxation. Or so they thought.

When Burns and Truitt discover the location of the survivors, a desperate rescue mission is launched to escape through the subway system to the safety of Brooklyn.

Three Days Gone
Mike Gone is a private investigator who delves into cases too weird for the Cincinnati Police Department. He has a tough drag queen for a secretary, a NASA scientist girlfriend, and he once staked a vampire who was sucking the local hooker population dry. After a shooting victim goes rogue zombie and disappears from the morgue, Gone and his crew are hired to find the corpse and bring it back. . . even if it's still walking. After three days, the reanimated cadaver climbs aboard a casino riverboat and wreaks havoc, bombing the boat, killing the security guards, and sending little old ladies head over bloomers into the river. The zombie collapses into a heap, but not before something glowing and green escapes from its mouth and forces its way into an unfortunate gambler. Back tracking, Gone and his crew (which now includes a tough-as-nails female cop, his secretary's soft-spoken boyfriend, a blues-singing exorcist, and his rapper grandson) discover a series of events, each separated by three days, reaching back to a singular incident with an evil spirit in a war-torn country. Now, Gone and his pals only have three days before the spirit ignites a new catastrophe, one much more devastating. Meanwhile, the members of Cincinnati's vampire union are pretty upset with how Gone handled the hooker case, and they're out for - well -- blood. Can this motley crew of two-fisted, trash-talking misfits become heroes and save the world? It's going require more than a few cocktails, a lot of wise-cracks, and one fabulous trench-coat, but with Mike Gone on the case, the chances are . . . well, at least fifty-fifty.
