A rollercoaster ride of ups and downs, laughs, and shocks, SYMPOSIUM OF THE REAPER by Andrew Adams is a horror collection featuring thirteen short stories inspired by the variety of TALES FROM THE CRYPT and the anarchic spirit of the EVIL DEAD franchise.
New England dark fiction author Rebecca Rowland’s new “weird horror” novella, SHAGGING THE BOSS, is available now from publisher Filthy Loot.
After a fortuitous encounter at a local book convention, a liberal arts graduate accepts a position at a flashy publishing company under the tutelage of its charismatic owner only to learn that the press is led, and fed, by a literal boogeyman.
DHC member Elana Gomel is the author of more than one hundred short stories, several novellas, and four novels. Her story, “Where the Streets Have No Name,” was the winner of the 2020 Gravity Award, “Mine Seven” is included in THE BEST HORROR OF THE YEAR 13 edited by Ellen Datlow, and “Bread and Salt” appears in THE JEWISH BOOK OF HORROR.
Gomel’s new dark fantasy novel, BLACK HOUSE, “combines the terror of HOUSE OF LEAVES with the adventures of Narnia.”
DHC member Michael Picco has published over two-dozen short stories; produced two award-winning collections; and has received numerous accolades for his brand of literary horror which “explores the dark and disturbing recesses of what is possible.”

But when Ward catches a glimpse of a strange appendage in place of Malina’s tongue, he fears the woman he’s loved for half a century isn’t succumbing to Alzheimer’s but transforming into something…not quite human.

This week, there’s no escaping THE CRYPTIDS by Elana Gomel!
An invasion like no other is threatening the Silicon Valley. A cutting-edge quantum communication technology has unleashed a flood of cryptid sightings. From headless Mothmen to dog-faced cats, strange beasts are prowling the streets and emerging from the woods, spreading a deadly epidemic of mind-blindness. Children mutate into protean monsters; people are carried away by thunderbirds; and those who survive fail to recognize themselves in the mirror.
Cryptozoologist Sharon Manley, a stranger in a strange land, thinks she knows what is going on. But who is going to believe her if her information comes to her in dreams? Torn between two countries and two men, she finally embarks on a one-way odyssey into the heart of the cryptid Earth to uncover its shocking secrets. Her quest takes her to the forest of flayed bears, to the beach colonized by Mothmen, and finally to the golden city of Hell. There she has to confront the enigmatic cryptid masters and to make the choice that will determine the fate of more worlds than one.
