When more deaths occur, Jen will be forced to confront the possibility of a supernatural killer. Enter the enigmatic occult expert, Carter Decamp. Their investigation will pit them against an evil that spreads its revenge across the centuries. From a small town on the Georgia Coast to the streets of a busy city, Jen and Decamp face mobsters and monsters alike.
Previously published as two novellas, Dracula’s Return comprises the full story of the Lord of Vampires’ re-emergence in the contemporary world. This new edition has been revised and expanded to form a fast-paced novel-length tale.
Also contains a Bonus Short Story featuring Jennifer Grail, Carter Decamp, and the immortal barbarian Kharrn.
120,000 words, with four original stories and eight best-of-SNAFU reprints.

Some of the most important military missions have been medical evacuations – medivacs.
Soldiers don’t often fight for themselves. They fight for the guy next to them, their brother, their friend, their family.
And they fight hard.
In 2019, Cohesion author and friend… hell, more family, really… Jim Moore was suddenly in the struggle of his life. He overcame the Big C, but his fight is ongoing. A fight to pay for all the treatments in a country that has no free public health system, and a fight to claw his way back from the ravages of the very treatment that saved his life.
His fight is our fight, and if we don’t fight for our friends, is there anything really worth living for?

All income from SNAFU: Medivac goes to Jim to help pay his bills and keep his household functional.
Once this is no longer necessary, the income will transfer to a cancer research or treatment charity.
In the 70s and 80s, animals ruled. Anacondas, piranha, giant crocodiles/alligators/lizards, mutated bears near nuclear power stations, prehistoric sharks all featured heavily in books and films, when bio-horror was at its modern peak.
This anthology of military-bio-horror stories is inspired by those classic days.
Think Greg McLean’s Rogue, Lake Placid, Eight-legged Freaks, Anaconda, Meg, Prophecy, Deep Blue Sea, and other films/books where people (in this case soldiers) are fighting against mutated, weird, or ultra-dangerous animals.

Since his first appearance in 1912, William Hope Hodgson’s Carnacki has continued to thrill and amaze. Armed with his scientific apparatus of cameras and the ever-present ‘electric pentacle’, Carnacki has investigated cases of hauntings and terror both contrived and real!
Collected here are 11 new stories, and one play, featuring Carnacki and his ‘new adventures’! In these tales, he comes face to face with forces from the ‘Outer Monstrosities’ as well as numerous specters and evil curses. Danger and death are Carnacki’s companions and there are things that even the legendary SaaaMaaa Ritual cannot dispel. Thrill to these new stories of a character who has entranced readers for a century and, hopefully, a century yet to come!
These stories run the gamut in setting and time, from traditional Victorian ghost stories to all too contemporary tales of terror. This is an anthology to be read by the fireside on cold nights with the wind howling at the windows. Or just in your favorite spot.
For well over fifty years the joy that kids feel for G.I. Joe, Hasbro’s toy phenomenon, stands as nothing short of amazing. Few other creations can boast of such an enduring love from fans of all ages across the globe.
Fall in with thirty such fans as they tell tales of childhoods marching alongside Joe through action and adventure, creating memories that have lasted lifetimes. THE JOY OF JOE will amuse you and touch your heart!
Sheriff Carl Price and ex-mercenary-turned P.I. Wade Griffin know well the other-worldly undercurrent that runs through the small town of Wellman, but with the Blackbournes trying to rebuild their strength, it seems they can breathe a little easier, Just a little.
Griffin starts working a case when he stumbles across a massacre at a drug lab, and when Price is called to the scene of a brutal triple homicide, it has all the markings of Blackbourne retribution.
Before the blood is dry, two more people are torn apart.
As the body count rises, Griffin and Price find themselves in the middle of a turf war where bullets and black magic are the weapons of choice. Caught between the worlds of monsters and men, Griffin and Price enlist the help of associate Carter Decamp to put an end to to the brewing battle.
But the gates of Hell have been opened and the beasts won't be denied their chance to feast.
1. A thing with the potential to kill men.
2. A dead branch caught precariously high in a tree which may fall on a person below.
3. A dark fiction anthology of prodigious size; large enough to use as a doorstop... or crush a man's skull.
