The Loveliest Dead

By

"Ray Garton is a horror master and The Loveliest Dead is one of his finest nightmares. Jenna and David Kellar, along with their young son Miles and Jenna’s mother Martha, pack up and head out to a coastal town in Northern California, where an old family homestead awaits. The Kellars hope to find peace here, a place to heal from a recent family tragedy. Little do they know, this eerie old home is expecting them—and it plans to make their life a living hell. 

Packed with bone-chilling passages that will keep you up well past the witching hour, Garton’s The Loveliest Dead is the perfect tale of terror to read at home alone." - Matthew Thompson, Executive Editor

The Michigan Murders

By

"Southeastern Michigan, 1967. From Ann Arbor to Detroit, the region crackles with counterculture energy. Yet on the campus of Ypsilanti’s Eastern Michigan University lurks a man with a sinister impulse. 

In just two short years, young John Norman Collins, an unassuming EMU student majoring in elementary education, brutally murdered multiple women. Most of Collins’ victims were fellow college students, triggering a wave of fear across campus and beyond as authorities raced to make sense of the killings. With propulsive prose, Edward Keyes recreates the case of the killer next door and what finally brought him down." - Matthew Thompson, Executive Editor
