Prepare to die. The sea awakens.
Eerie River brings you another round of insatiable thrills. There is no end to the terrors we have in store and there is nowhere left to hide.

IT CALLS FROM THE SEA is a delightfully creepy collection of horror tales that run the gamut from mildly thrilling to absolutely freaky and everything in between. Some stories were longer than others, but they’re all the perfect length for when you just want something quick, dirty, and spooky. Each tale is delightfully different from the others, but they all have the common thread of water creatures that tie them together.
If you’re a fan of horror, you’re not going to want to miss It Calls From The Sea!!! I can’t pick a favorite story from this anthology. Each was unique and packed a real punch.
Sea creatures from the abyss. Leviathans of rare intelligence. Monsters who will drag you into the deep. The variety in this book is amazing. Each story is well written and some of them are unforgettable and terrifying.
Your worst nightmares stalk you from the shadows…
Polluted waters unleash a bloodthirsty terror in a small Ontario town. A father and daughter seek sanctuary in an old village church, only to discover that evil knows no bounds. And insanity plagues a young girl, as she struggles to prove the monster in her basement is not a figment of her imagination…
Evil is unleashed in Scare Street’s latest bone-chilling collection of supernatural horror. Fourteen tales of terror lurk within this new volume—more than enough to give even the bravest soul a reason to fear the night.
As your eyes flutter open, you can still see dark images in your mind… Horrifying monsters, demons, and ghouls with a hunger for human flesh. You could hear their cries, feel their razor-sharp claws against your skin. But was it real? Or was it just another bad dream?
Then you hear footsteps in the shadows beyond your bed. And a hungry howl echoes through the night once more. A chill runs down your spine.
Because this time, the nightmare is real. And it’s getting closer…

-The System of Dr. Tarr and Prof. Fether by Edgar Allan Poe (1845)
Poe’s classic tale told of a state of the art hospital boasting a curiously experimental treatment, but things were not as they seemed. In The Half That You See, twenty-six writers from around the globe share their literary optical illusions in never before seen stories of portentous visions and haunting memories, altered consciousness and virulent nightmares, disordered thinking and descents into madness. Take a walk down the paths of perception that these dark fiction raconteurs have tunneled for you, but keep a tight grip on your flashlight: the course twists and turns, and once you’re on route to your destination, there is no turning back. That which creeps about in the poorly lit corners of the human mind has teeth, and it’s waiting for you.

This is not our world. This is the world AFTER.
Featuring the entire eight-part novelette series
We challenged eight Eerie River authors to imagine life AFTER the world we know is destroyed by a cataclysmic event, leaving our species on the brink and struggling to survive. In each of these stories you will find a new world, years after the old one was ravaged by war, disease, invasion, climate change or mythological event.
In the caves and on the roads, through transformation and violence, and in the empty spaces left by the vanishing sea, discover the fate of the humanity that remains, both familiar and alien. Where survival is a struggle and the future lives in the ruins of the past.
This is not a collection of stories about how the world ends.
These are stories of how humanity survives.
Fans of "Love, Death + Robots" will love this collection!

Sin Chaser by S.O. Green
In my official capacity as secretary for the Brotherhood, I have been tasked with the dubious honour of finally revealing the mind-bending truth behind the series of atrocities that started in 1887 with the Rainham Mystery and ostensibly ended in 1889 with the discovery of the Pinchin Street Torso. During those nightmarish years, the citizens of the capital were in the grip of a terror hitherto unknown during peacetime. I am now in possession of all the facts and can finally reveal who—or rather what—was behind these savage murders.
The following is a factual account of what truly happened during the reign of terror of both The Thames Torso Murderer and the most famous serial killer in history, Jack the Ripper. I fully understand that what you are about to read will strain credibility, but ask yourself this: Is it any more outlandish than the tales of vengeful midwives, murderous authors, and royal conspiracies that have been doing the rounds for these past 133-plus years?
What many don’t realise is that there were more than one series of murders taking place at the same time during the latter part of the nineteenth century. The lesser-known, but no less grisly, torso murders have often been mixed up and added to Jack’s tally, but—as you will see—there were two distinct forces at work that held the fate of not just London or The British Empire but the whole world in their blood-soaked hands. A war was taking place on the grimy streets of the East End that only a select few knew of and survived with their bodies and sanity intact.
In these pages, you will hear tales of ghastly crimes, deprivation, terror, and insanity. For over a century, a select few have been in charge of the facts, and it has been decided that now, in 2021 when humanity finds itself at its weakest and most vulnerable, to finally let the cat out of the bag. We fear that another attack may be on the horizon. The stars are almost right again. Most of these documents have been locked away in the official files of my organisation. Though others had somehow found themselves into the hands of a writer of weird fiction in Prohibition-era Rhode Island, I fear that the mystery of how or why the writer ended up with them may never have an answer. They recently came to light at a literary auction in Massachusetts and finally filled in some of the blanks.
Some of you will believe this to be a work of fiction. Just one more clever hoax in a field of study littered with them. I will fully understand if some of you deem myself and the group that I proudly represent a bunch of crackpot conspiracy theorists. This will be hard for most of you to believe and, had I not seen the proof, I would have scoffed at the madness of it all: The truth is often too much for the human brain to digest.
I entreat you to go into this tome with an open mind. For, as we shall see, the truth of the Whitechapel Murders is far stranger than fiction.
