For the dark hours when you dare not close your eyes. Tales of horror to frighten and disturb. Join us as the sleepless hours tick past. Brace yourself… for The NoSleep Podcast. A multi-award winning anthology series of original horror stories, The NoSleep Podcast features a cast of talented voice actors, music and sound effects to enhance the frightening tales.
The horror community has thousands of LGBTQIA fans, so where are we in the stories? Traditionally, horror has included us or used us as part of the plot twist. Transgender individuals are vilified in stories like “Silence of the Lambs” and “Sleepaway Camp.” Lesbians are included to sexualize storylines and Gay men are depicted as shrill-screaming comic relief. Where is everyone else in this picture? Short Answer: They’re not. And we want to change that!
In the deep, forgotten places of the world are things most people would not believe, and even fewer would understand. Old things, old ways, old truths…and old monsters. Creatures so terrible, we did everything we could to forgot them. But just because you forget a monster doesn’t mean it’s forgotten you.
The Monsters We Forgot Trilogy is a collection of over 100 folklore-inspired horror stories by a multi-national team of authors ranging from award-winners and bestsellers to visionary newcomers.
This second volume in our popular anthology series is a superlative collection of fifteen spine-chilling, marrow-icing ghost stories that will have you hiding beneath the covers and reaching for the comfort of your nightlight’s glow.
Featuring tales of the otherworldly by:
Lee Glenwright, Davis Pratt, Derek Muk,
TS Alan, Nicholas Beishline, Marvin Brown, Kenneth Bykerk, Dustin Chisam, Alison Cybe, Virginia Elizabeth Hayes, Heddy Johannesen, Sylvia Son, Carl Alves, Thomas Kodnar, and Patrick W. Gibson
Join 18 masters of the macabre, the strange, and the bizarre as they journey into a dark and richly reimagined Portsmouth. Discover the mysterious pulse that beats beneath the pavement of this living city that craves blood and sacrifice. Witness damnation in a hellish vision of Victorian Portsmouth, and learn just how difficult it can be getting two severed heads through customs at the port. Like the waves that lap the fringes of this waterfront city, past and present flow back and forth in these tales of haunting and horror, dragging ghosts and tragedies.
Let’s talk about Death. After all, it’s the one thing we all have in common. Eventually. Let’s explore it, cry about it, tremble at it, laugh at it. Then let’s write stories about Death… Twenty authors have done exactly that, giving you twenty-eight tales about the one subject no-one wants to talk about, but everyone knows will one day come to them. Often wry, sometimes creepy, always surprising, this book boasts internationally-published authors as well as talented newcomers to the printed page.
Featuring interviews with Stephen Jones, Shauna MacDonald and Karl O’Rowe. Christmas ghost stories, Stan Lee tribute, FEAR Magazine at 30, Journey to the Unknown, Batman – Arkham Asylum, The Fog, reviews, dark poetry and much, much more!
