Whether it's pirate rabbis or demon-slaying Bible queens, concentration camp vampires or beloved, fearless bubbies, THE JEWISH BOOK OF HORROR offers you twenty-two dark tales about the culture, history, and folklore of the Jewish people.

And monsters into men.
What would you do for love?
Self-sacrifice, of course...
But what about literal sacrifice?
Would you kill for the right person?
Would you kill again…and again…and again?
What if you could come back from the dead to protect your loved ones?
Or never die in the first place?
Would you cross the ocean? The world?
What about the universe? Or reality itself?
Would you enlist a demon to avenge your brother?
Or seduce a serial killer to save your sister?
Would you live an eternity of lifetimes with your soulmate?
Even if he was a monster?
A family of necromancers determined to preserve their way of life at all costs…
A tragic spirit whose rage burns across centuries…
Parents who go to reality-defying lengths to save their children…
Legendary monsters resurrected to avenge the forgotten…
Guardians of the ancient world who kill to protect their wards…
Jealous lovers who let nothing stand in their way…
Come and meet these monsters, and the things they do for love.

Zombie #2 - Mixed Drink
If you’re looking for an array of Horror stories to sink your teeth into, look no further than Memento Mori…pay the Ferryman, and prepare to take the ride of your life.
The title, Memento Mori, is Latin and literally means: “Remember you too must die.” An ominous-sounding phrase, the saying derived from Puritan settlers who would often display tokens of death as a reminder to the living of the fragility of life…not to mention the eternal punishment awaiting those who wallowed in wickedness.
Death has always been a fascination to the living, meaning different things to different groups of people. Edgar Allan Poe nailed it when he said: “The boundaries which divide Life from Death are at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say where the one ends, and where the other begins?”
There is a wealth of truly incredible talent within these pages, each storyteller attempting to explore that very question. Her is a healthy book full of decidedly unhealthy stories. With Death being the key element in each one of those stories, you might be expecting a morbid ride, but rest assured, there are quite a few pieces of comedic gold lined inside this skeleton’s spine, along with the many that will send a chill down your own.
Blood and Blasphemy is a collection of over thirty of the most sacrilegious horror stories ever written. Within these irreverent pages, you will encounter a priest that keeps his deformed spawn chained in a root cellar, a convent where a poisonous species of salamander is worshiped, a demonic altar boy, possessed religious relics that kill, blood-drinking clergymen, a Son of God who feeds on sin, an unsuspecting couple who run afoul of religious lunatics in a small town, the divine (and deadly) turd of Christ, and other terrifying tales guaranteed to make church ladies faint and nuns clutch their rosaries.
Featuring stories by: Aron Beauregard, George Alan Bradley, Cardigan Broadmoor, Scot M. Carpenter, Myna Chang, Clay McLeod Chapman, Nick Dinicola, Jude M. Eriksen, Michael Martin Garrett, Gerri R. Gray, Christopher Hamel, Carlton Herzog, B.T. Joy, A.L. King, Daryl Marcus, Jeremy Megargee, Donna J.W. Munro, Hari Navarro, Trevor Newton, Drew Nicks, C.C. Parker, Wolfgang Potterhouse, J.L. Shioshita, J.J. Smith, Henry Snider, J.B. Toner, Sheldon Woodbury, and Shawn Wood.
And so, HellBound Books pays a terrifying homage to the unique part of the female anatomy that has been bestowed with perceived mystical powers and feared by men throughout the ages. Summoning Satan are a bunch of the bravest, brightest horror talent on the independent writing scene today...
