Seventh Star Press is proud to welcome Carl R. Moore into our family of authors. His collection of horror, crime noir, and alt-mythology titled A Slash of Crimson and other Tales, was edited by Margie Colton, and is set to be released in early summer of this year in both print and eBook formats. "We are thrilled to have Carl aboard with us," said Seventh Star Press founding member Stephen Zimmer. "Carl worked with a fantastic editor in Margie Colton, in developing this collection, and the results are exceptional. Carl is very dedicated to the craft of writing, and I have no doubt that readers of many different genres are going to love his work." Synopsis of Slash of Crimson and Other Tales: Slash of Crimson and Other Tales offers two novellas and six short stories that combine an intoxicating mix of horror, crime noir, and alt-mythology. From its title story about a young guitarist and street rough who takes a harrowing journey with a red-eyed beauty who claims she’s from Atlantis, through the half-dozen brutal and bitterly sardonic tales of souls tortured by demons and far worse, to the final novella of trust-destroying lust, the collection delivers a deliciously disturbing feast full of fire, shadow, and infernal intrigue. About Carl R. Moore: Carl R. Moore lives in upstate New York with his wife Sarah and two daughters, Maddy and Izzy. His fiction has appeared in Thuglit, Macabre Cadaver, and numerous other magazines and anthologies. When he’s not writing or working the night shift, he enjoys listening to heavy metal, plucking steel-string guitar, and walking miles through the woods. Follow Carl on Twitter at: @carlrmoore Carl R.

Synopsis of Ozarium: The Shift of the world transitioned without delusion. The Reckoning has molded a brand new world, beginning with a colony ran by a large corporation called Slader Corp which invents a bizarre lottery, randomly choosing a winner, awarding him or her with infamous amounts of BodyKredd to spend nearly however they wish; though, in turn, surrendering their bodies to the demi agents when they come calling.
But what happens when a child wins the lottery?
About Brick Marlin: Brick Marlin has been writing since he was a child. From an early age he was exposed to older, original horror movies. The great ones that have made a 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, W. W. Jacobs, etc. Thus, he decided to engage himself and write horror and dark fantasy, scaring readers such as his parents, his friends, a handful of 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 five books published by small presses with one more in the works coming soon, nearly twenty-five short stories published, adding to the few anthologies and collaborations with other authors, Brick Marlin trudges onward, hoping to achieve more creations, living in the minds of his characters making decisions such as whether to turn the knob and enter through the Red Door, or perhaps try and take a chance at the Blue Door, the one that is already ajar, a bony finger beckoning the next visitor.
Married to the best woman in the world, she allows him to tuck himself away inside his office, donning his Anti-Literary Gremlin helmet, and produce his bizarre tales.
Be sure to pick up Brick Marlin's Shadow Out of the Sky, the first book in the Transitional Delusions Series, too!

Synopsis of Gray Widow's Walk: “The only thing in this world you can truly control is yourself.”
Janey Sinclair’s ability to teleport has always been a mystery to her. She tried for years to ignore it, but when tragedy shatters her life, Janey’s anger consumes her. She hones her fighting skills, steals a prototype suit of military body armor, and takes to the streets of Atlanta, venting her rage as the masked vigilante dubbed “the Gray Widow” by the press.
But Janey’s power, and her willingness to use it, plunges her into a conflict on a much grander scale than she had anticipated.
Soon she encounters Simon Grove, a bloodthirsty runaway with a shapeshifting ability gone horribly wrong…
Garrison Vessler, an ex-FBI agent and current private defense contractor, who holds some of the answers Janey’s been searching for…
And Tim Kapoor, the first person in years with a chance of breaking through Janey’s emotional shell—if she’ll let him.
But as Janey’s vigilantism gains worldwide attention, and her showdown with Simon Grove draws ever closer, the reason for her augmented abilities—hers and all the others like her—begins to reveal itself. Because, high above the Earth, other eyes are watching. And they have far-reaching plans…
Gray Widow’s Walk is book one of the Gray Widow Trilogy, to be followed by Gray Widow’s Web and Gray Widow’s War.
Get Death's Revival today at these links:
Synopsis of Death's Revival: Becoming a grim reaper was right up my alley. I enjoyed being dead. I helped souls crossover into either Heaven or Hell with my fellow reaper, Than. For two years, I enjoyed my life and then the killings started. Psychics were being murdered at haunted sites and souls disappearing.Someone was tampering with the fabric of the universe, trying to draw something evil into this world. To do that, the killer needed the souls of the psychics and the ghosts he could gather to open the doorway.I was charged with saving those souls and find out who the serial killer was. Yeah, being used as bait was definitely not my first choice, but who can kill a grim reaper?I'm already dead.With Than's help, I'll stop the evil from penetrating this world so I can get back to my soul gathering.
I mean the dead stay dead, right?
Get Peritoneum today at these links:
Synopsis of Peritoneum: Snaking through history--from the early-1900s cannibal axe-murderer of "Blood and Feathers," to the monster hunting on the 1943 Pacific front in "Year of the Wolf," through the files of J. Edgar Hoover for an "Interview with 'Oscar,'" and into "The Broom Closet Where Everything Dies" for a finale in the year 2050--Peritoneum winds up your guts to assault your brain. Hallucinatory experiences redefine nightmare in "Patrick's Luck" and "The Eternal Recurrence of Suburban Abortion." Strange visions of colors and insects spill through the basements of hospitals and houses, especially the basement that provides the title for "TR4B," which causes visitors to suffer from "Door Poison." Settings, characters, and details recur not only in these tales but throughout Peritoneum, connecting all its stories in oblique but organic ways. Freud, borrowing from Virgil, promised to unlock dreams not by bending higher powers but by moving infernal regions. Welcome to a vivisection. Come dream with the insides.
Get Reel Dark today at these links:
Synopsis of Reel Dark: Welcome to a macabre cinema for the imagination, to twisted tales projected not on a movie screen but on the page. In Reel Dark you'll find suspense, horror, science fiction, and fantasy in fiction and poetry by authors ranging from new voices to bestsellers. From the battle for recognition between a child actress and a vengeful, long-forgotten film star in "Whatever Happened to Peggy...Who?" to a hapless artist whose talent propels him into a nightmare of jealousy and revenge in "The Dreamist," the authors have created worlds filled with madness and twisted desires. Where the lines between reality and fantasy blur, where films flicker at 24 frames per second, we catch a glimpse of strangers' dreams and nightmares. As David Lynch puts it, "This whole world is wild at heart and weird on top." As Karen Head writes in her poem "Amnesia," responding to Lynch, "In the movies / everything is illusion." But with cameras everywhere, how do you know whether you're in a movie?
Get Leaping at Thorns today at these links:
Synopsis of Leaping at Thorns: Leaping at Thorns arranges eighteen of L. Andrew Cooper's experimental short horror stories into a triptych of themes--complicity, entrapment, and conspiracy--elements that run throughout the collection. The stories span from the emotionally-centered to the unthinkably horrific; from psychosexual grossness to absurd violence; from dark extremes to brain-and-tongue twister. These standalone stories add important details to the fictional world and grand scheme of Dr. Allen Fincher, who also lurks in the background of Cooper's novels Burning the Middle Ground and Descending Lines.
Seventh Star Press is proud to reveal the cover art by Aaron Drown of Aaron Drown Design for the new edition of the Reel Dark anthology from editors L. Andrew Cooper and Pamela Turner.
