Vengeful undead. Demons. Hungry rats. These creatures and more haunt city streets, unlit hallways, deep space, and the corners of your imagination in Re-Terrify.
Send shivers down your spine with 18 horrifying tales from an international roster of authors.

Re-Terrify reminds readers that monsters hide in the shadows and even the bravest person should beware of the dark.
Ever-turbulent humanity has reached out to the stars and found itself challenged by several “exosapient” species whose motivations are as unusual as their physical forms. Troubleshooters like Caine Riordan must contend with both humans and aliens during this epic plunge into the high-stakes exploration, statecraft, and warfare that churn and change our post-contact world.
But no world is defined just by the characters who occupy center stage. “Lost Signals” digs deep into the lives—and struggles—of those beyond the spotlight by bringing together twenty new voices and new stories in a format that blurs the line between fact and fiction in the Consolidated Terran Republic.

And you'd better believe it. They're all funny. Yeah.
Funny as a Heart Attack...
Shakespeare began the tense apprehension with his melodic yet warning phrase. Ray Bradbury continued the dark and ominous foreboding that oozes between the words. Now, it has come to the North American Old West, a world with its severe terrain and hardened residents. The rules were harsher out here, the ethics and morals changed, the fight for life and liberty quite different than anything these pioneers, these outlaws, these six-shooters and rebel rousers, these unquestionably brave men and women had bargained for. For them, something wicked certainly rode.
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble…
In this anthology, we explore the Old West with a skewed view, showcasing the weird western genre through stories that explore the peculiar and the fantastic, the wicked that was and could have been. You’ll experience spiritual nightmares, mythical monsters, cosmic outlaws, discerning gods, and science run amok. Even the North Pole Security division isn’t immune to the supernatural strangeness that stalks the late 1800s. In the tradition of the pulp and western stories of a bygone era, these are thirty tales to intrigue, amaze, and perhaps down right spook you right out of your boots.
So brew up some coffee, head out to the rocking chair on the porch, and tilt your hat to shade your eyes so you can read real close. Just be sure you keep one eye on the horizon and one hand near your holster. For…
With dark intentions and creatures astride,
Something wicked this way rides.
