Titles By Bryan Smith
Two titans of modern horror-Brian Keene and Bryan Smith-team up for the terrifying crossover sequel to both Keene's URBAN GOTHIC and Smith's THE FREAKSHOW.
The Westgate Galleria Mall was once a sprawling, shining monument to American consumerism and suburban growth. Now, it is a crumbling reminder of how both have fallen-an architectural ghost, haunting the outskirts of society. That makes it the perfect filming location for a YouTube channel devoted to the exploration of abandoned places. But the mall isn't as empty as it seems and the residents have sinister obscene plans for them. Now, with the daylight still hours away, both the hunters and the hunted will fight to stay alive...and desperately try to make it home.
SUBURBAN GOTHIC by Brian Keene and Bryan Smith-Home is where is the severed heart is...
Shortly thereafter, a stranger named Doyle shows up, a mysterious figure with powerful magic at his command. Alternately known as the Lord of the Dead and the Last of the Ravagers, the renegade wizard seeks even greater power, the source of which resides in the heart of Snakebite.
As monsters and dead things rise and lay siege to the town, a band of citizens must come together to make a desperate last stand.
Six months after losing everything that once mattered to her, Allison Cook’s life is mired in a grim downward spiral. The otherworldly entity known only as The Visitor still haunts her, still feeds on her emotions and desires, leading her to the brink of madness and despair. In the beginning, the creature’s impossible gifts from other realms made the erosion of her humanity an acceptable sacrifice, but now they’re no longer enough. The all-consuming darkness growing within her becomes too much to bear, and she begins to yearn for a restoration of what was lost.
Unfortunately, the granting of this wish only leads her down even darker and stranger paths from which she may never return.
Deeper than ever into…THE UNSEEN.

"The Freakshow is a sure bet to cement Bryan Smith's position in the forefront of the bold and shocking writers producing exceptional books within the horror genre."
Includes Depraved II: The In-Between-Quel, a short story that reveals the grisly fate of two characters from the novel. The story is as spectacularly gory as the novel itself.
