Laddie, if water were evil I’d be but a drop. What lurks below is an

From the haunted halls of Cairnwood Manor to the bowels of Rosslyn
Chapel, Bob Freeman hurls you into the very heart of the eternal
conflict between the forces of darkness and the forces of light.

epic battle of blood and thunder.

When a sinister cabal converges to unleash the ultimate evil against an
unsuspecting world, only the combined strength of the Wolves of
Cairnwood Manor and the Circle of Nine Skulls offers up a glimmer of
hope as werewolves, vampires, witches, immortal warriors, and an army of
the undead collide in a battle of epic bloodshed.

L. Andrew Cooper Joins Seventh Star Press Author Family

Seventh Star Press is proud to announce that L. Andrew Cooper has joined our author family, with three exciting releases coming over the course of 2016!

2016 will feature two reissues of previous titles and a brand new one.

Leaping at Thorns, a single author collection of horror short stories that explores the themes of complicity, entrapment, and conspiracy will see a new edition early in 2016. Also coming early in 2016 is a new edition of Reel Dark, an anthology of horror, science fiction, and dark fantasy stories and poems co-edited by L. Andrew Cooper and Pamela Turner that features a cinema theme.

In May of 2016, L. Andrew’s brand new collection of horror tales, Peritoneum will be launched.  Plans are being developed for a special launch event that will be announced in the near future.

“We are very excited about having L. Andrew Cooper in the Seventh Star Press family,” press representative Stephen Zimmer commented. “He is a highly gifted author, a very skilled editor, and has a scholarly command of the horror genre, not just in literature but in film as well. With sagacity and an imagination that is truly unbound, L. Andrew Cooper is going to be working some literary magic with Seventh Star Press in the near future!”

About L. Andrew Cooper: L. Andrew Cooper devotes extraordinary time to things provocative, scary, and strange. Works include novels Burning the Middle Ground and Descending Lines; short story collections Leaping at Thorns and Peritoneum (2016); non-fiction Gothic Realities and Dario Argento; co-edited fiction anthologies Reel Dark and Imagination Reimagined; and the co-edited textbook Monsters. After a decade studying literature and film at Harvard and Princeton—specializing in horror—he used his Ph.D. to teach about favorite topics from coast to coast in the United States, publish film criticism in academic and mainstream journals, and spend a year as the “film guy” on Louisville, Kentucky’s WDRB-TV. Having lived all over the U.S. (and travelled the world as much as possible, which is not enough), Cooper strives to be a global citizen, but he grew up in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia, an experience his readers encounter often. His global interests provide a never-ending supply of good horror movies as well as annoyance to his cat, Samara, who wishes Andrew and his partner James would just stay home.

Nook version will be live shortly.

Synopsis of Hellscapes, Volume II: Return to the nightmarish, shadowy realms of Hell in the latest installment of the Hellscapes series by Stephen Zimmer. Six brand new, macabre tales of the infernal await you … but be that you only visit these realms, you do not want to share the fates of the inhabitants you will encounter!

Included in the pages of Hellscapes, Volume II:

In “The Cavern”, a man finds his way into a nightmare, subterranean world that leads to an even greater, and more devastating, revelation.

A police officer takes pleasure in violently executing his duties and it appears to be open season in “The Riot” when he is part of an operation sent to crack down on a gathering of people protesting an economic summit nearby. But this is an operation that is going to take a very different kind of turn, one that opens his eyes to a new reality.

A woman finds herself stranded on a high, rocky ledge, along with many other men and women, surrounded by a frothing sea in “Above as Below”. Shadows glide beneath the surface and soon she will discover what lurks within the depths.

“Spots Do Not Change” tells the story of a man who has never had any qualms lying, cheating, or deceiving the women in his life. A reckoning day looms as he comes to understand that his actions have harmed the lives of many others, actions that in the realms of Hell take on forms of their own.

Having spun webs of intrigue and personal destruction at the heights of national politics throughout his life, a man finds webs of another sort to present grave danger when he finds himself lost within a strange wilderness in “Weaving Webs”.

Many are drawn to “The Club” in the heart of the decaying, shadow-filled city of Malizia, hoping for some entertainment and release, or even safety from the monstrous dangers lurking in the darkness. One man struggling against amnesia finds his way to the seemingly popular establishment and its confines give him momentary hope; until he discovers the nature of this night club and those who run it.

About Stephen: Stephen Zimmer is an award-winning author and filmmaker based in Lexington Kentucky. His work includes the cross-genre Rising Dawn Saga, the epic fantasy Fires in Eden series, the sword and sorcery Dark Sun Sawn Trilogy, featuring Rayden Valkyrie, and the Hellscapes and Chronicles of Ave short story collections.

Cover art by Jason C. Conley from Shadow Out of the Sky

Get ready to enter the world of one of the horror genre’s rising stars in the pages of Shadow Out of the Sky…

A scarecrow crucified on a wooden cross made from a pair of two-by-fours sits in a field of corn, placed there to frighten away birds and protect the crops. Under its straw hat large buttons pose as its eyes, placed there by child’s fingers, view something sinister in the grave sky, appearing in front of the full moon.

Twisting, it forms into a sleek black mass, peering down upon the town of Woodbury. Four demons called The Reckoning has pulled this shadow, this urban legend from the past, out of an unmarked grave to bring terror across the planet, shoving it toward an apocalypse.

Now it cuts through the air, as if it were opening wounds in flesh, peering down at the first house that it hovers over…

About Brick Marlin: Brick Marlin has been writing since he was a child. From an early age he was exposed to older horror movies. The great ones making their mark in history. He also tackled reading the likes of Stephen King, Clive Barker, Ray Bradbury, Kurt Vonnegut, Dean Koontz, Charles Dickens, Harper Lee, H.G. Wells, etc. Thus, he decided to engage himself and write horror, dark fantasy and dark sci-fi, scaring readers such as his parents, his friends, neighbors, and even leaving a few school teachers scratching their heads wondering if the boy should be committed or not with his gruesome tales of terror. Short story ideas continued to visit. A book idea or two sometimes stopped by for a sit. In 2007 he decided to take a more professional approach with his work. Hence, as a member of the Horror Writers Association, already having nine books published by small presses – this you hold in your hand, constant reader, makes his tenth – nearly thirty short stories published, adding to the few anthologies and collaborations with other authors, Brick Marlin trudges onward, hoping to achieve more creations, wallowing in the brain pans of his characters, giving them the choice whether to twist the knob and enter through the Red Door, or enter through the Blue Door where a group of servo monkey badgers are consuming packages of cinnamon-flavored Pop Rock Candy with a Kung Fu Punch of caffeine.

Synopsis of Straightjacket Memories: There is a fine line between love and madness, between insanity and pure evil.

This is Michael West at his terrifying best! From heart-stopping horror to the strangest of fantasies — these are tales from the darkest regions of his twisted imagination! All the usual tropes are here — vampires and shapeshifters, ghosts and witches, gods and monsters, mummies and zombies — but none of them are exactly what you would expect…

A dream vacation takes a nightmarish turn when a couple finds they did not come home alone…

A man agrees to a meeting with his estranged wife and learns the horrible, obscene truth of the old saying: “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned…”

An American platoon, cut off from the outside world, discovers an unbelievable enemy they were never trained to fight…

And a man struggling with depression and grief receives text messages from beyond the grave, messages that push him to the edge of sanity…and beyond…

Ten more reasons to say your prayers.

Ten more reasons to check beneath your bed.

Ten more reasons why you may never want to close your eyes again.

About Michael West: Michael West is the bestselling author of Cinema of Shadows, The Wide Game, Spook House, Skull Full of Kisses, and the critically-acclaimed Legacy of the Gods series. He lives and works in the Indianapolis area with his wife, their two children, their turtle, Gamera, and their dog, King Seesar.

Death’s Dance is Book One in a brand new series called Deathly Encounters that will introduce readers to psychic Kerstin Palmer.  Regarding the events of Death’s Dance, Kerstin has this say:

“Being a psychic, you would think talking to the dead was a walk in the park. However, it’s not always that simple. The hooded specter haunting me is one I’ve been dreaming about since I was a kid. One day, he appeared in my bedroom mirror. Good. Evil. I don’t know what his true intentions are.

Enter Jackson, ghost hunting show host extraordinaire, and my ex, to save me from the big bad ghost.

From there…well…it’s been a world wind of complications. My house burnt down. I’m being stalked by an ancient evil and gotten myself back into the world of being a ghost hunting psychic. Jackson dragged me, along with a few other psychics, to a ghost town wiped off the map called Death’s Dance. From there things went from bad to worse.”

Death’s Dance will be released mid-June in all eBook formats and softcover (trade paperback)

Crymsyn Hart is a national bestselling author of over seventy paranormal romance and horror novels. Her experiences as a psychic have given her a lot of material to use in her books.

Cover Reveal for Peter Welmerink’s New Zombie-filled Thriller Transport!

Seventh Star Press is proud to reveal the new cover art by Jason C. Conley for Peter Welmerink’s Transport, the first book of an exciting new post-apocalyptic trilogy by the same same!

Transport brings together the elements of a military thriller and zombie-laced horror in a character-driven adventure and will be released in print and all eBook formats in May. The book will also feature a pair of brand new interior illustrations from internationally renowned artist Tim Holtrop.

Transport tells the story of the HURON, a 72-ton heavy transport vehicle and an army of four; tracked, racked and ready to roll, to serve and protect the walled metropolis of Grand Rapids—both her living and her undead. Captain Jacob Billet and his crew patrol the byways, ready for trouble.

William Lettner, the North Shore Coalition High Commissioner, has enemies from the mainland to the lakeshore and needs to be covertly transported home after his helicopter is shot down en route to Grand Rapids. He has no love for a city that give unliving civilians the right to survive. Lettner’s venomous outbursts assaults Billet and his crew along every mile travelled as they are assigned to safely bring him through the treacherous landscape outside the city back to his hometown.

The HURON and her crew will have to face domesticated zombies and the feral undead; marauders holding strategic chokepoints hostage; barricaded villages fighting for survival, and a group of geneticists who’ve lost control of one of their monstrous experiments if they want to complete their mission.

The crew will need to stay strong and trust one another in order to finish the mission and bring their “precious” cargo home, even knowing, all the while, the terrible deeds Lettner has done.

Travelling through West Michigan was never so dangerous.

Peter Welmerink has been published in various online and wood pulp publications, mainly in the realms of Dark Fantasy and Sword & Sorcery. Peter’s biggest novel endeavor to date was a collaborative effort with Steven L. Shrewsbury, entitled Bedlam Unleashed. His most recent published short story prior to Transport was published in Fading Light: An Anthology of the Monstrous. His is married with a small barbarian horde consisting of three rambunctious boys.
