It was all in the name of science. Now someone has to clean up the mess.
Stan Armstrong dedicated his entire life to science. Branded as a maverick and a risk-taker by his colleagues, his unorthodox experiments and outlandish theories of time and space resulted in loss of funding and ultimately, his termination from tenure at the university where he’d spent his entire career.
Stan’s insatiable quest to explore extreme hypotheses and to prove the unproven were matched only by his neurotic lust to peel back the mysterious layers of time and space to expose the hidden secrets of the universe. Determined to continue his work at all costs, he uproots the life he once knew, liquidates his assets and builds his own lab on a desolate twenty-four-acre rural property in Devil’s Gulch, Utah, no longer bound by government regulation or the prying eyes of small-minded administrators.
Whether born from his profound love for science, or his enormous ego, Stan unintentionally unleashes something sinister in Devil’s Gulch—something that was never meant to walk this Earth.
Sinister Smile Press presents Devil’s Gulch, a horror novel written by Claire Brown, Matthew A. Clarke, T.M. Morgan, Chris Wilkerson, Chisto Healy, Kayla Krantz, Jon Miller, T.M. Brown, Mark Young, Bridgett Nelson, R.E. Sargent and Steven Pajak.
What flavor is your nightmare?
Forty-nine authors have come together to tell us theirs. Each story is unique in its horror but all should be read with the lights on and the shadows kept at bay, because some stories tend to stay with you even after the book is closed.
From established authors, to people putting pen to paper for the first time.
Books of Horror presents its inaugural Community Anthology.

In the race to destroy the final orphanage on the planet, is there anything that can save the souls of the inhabitants of earth?
In a bizarre twist of fate, the majority of the population is eradicated. Those that remain are given a second chance, ascending to a curious land in which they are told they must fight for their lives to survive.
Only two can prevail.
Which is going to be somewhat of an issue given the inclusion of the Wild Cards; special combatants dropped into the battlefield to wreak havoc. From Kim Jong-un to Hitler, these guys are out for blood.
The World Has Gone To Turd And The Only Way To Save It Is With A Big Ol' Battle Royale is a brutal, action packed adventure that tackles some of the most pressing issues of modern times, such as what would happen if Jesus returned and wasn't able to find a virgin? And is it possible for a sentient man-turd to fall in love? One thing is for sure, you've never seen a battle royale quite like this.

In the year 2030, a dying scientist released a volatile pathogen into the atmosphere. It granted the elderly a plethora of augmented abilities, near-immortality, and an insatiable bloodlust for the generations that have wronged them.
The war between the Greys and the Resistance has now been raging for over two hundred years.
The Resistance are all but defeated. Their survival depends on the success of one man’s mission — infiltrate the Grey’s sanctum and retrieve the antivirus. Raised in solitary confinement on a strict diet of cigars and alcohol, Wilhelm Baggotry has successfully prematurely aged his body to that of a ninety-year-old.
Will it be enough to fool the Greys and gain their trust? Or will the Resistance be destroyed, and youth become a thing of the past? Coffin Dodgers is a bizarre tale of love, loss, and depravity that is guaranteed to leave you with an irrational aversion to butterscotch.
Growing up is never easy, especially when the person you love is turning into a giant f*cking mantis.
Jacoboby Bentley and his friends know little of life outside the Super Mantis Killas (SMK). Their day to day lives consist of drinking cheap booze, good drugs, video games, and the occasional mantis-beatdown.
But when Jacoboby’s girlfriend and long-term best friend, Millie, starts to become a mantis, he finds himself questioning everything he has been raised to believe in, unsure of where his loyalties lie. It would be easy to treat her like any other manti-person — regular beatings, chase her out of town, eventually kill her — but is that really what he wants? Or is he willing to turn his back on everyone and everything that he’s ever known in order to spend the rest of his life with her, facing the wrath and retribution of the clan?
Things Were Easier Before You Became a Giant F*cking Mantis shoves you into a bizarre world populated by manti-people, clansmen, and a happy little gnome that you would definitely not want to leave alone with your child.
