BOOK NEWS!

DISEASE  Humanity’s war against the living dead has been lost. In the wake of the zombie apocalypse, the living fight fiercely for what little they have.

In this hell-on-earth Casey, armed with a baseball bat, and joined by a mute boy named Alex, struggles to survive. When a man named Danny stumbles upon them, it’s mistrust at first sight – but times are desperate. Danny leads them to a thriving settlement where danger lurks beneath the guise of kindness.

It’s kill or be killed in a world where power is life, and the earth is overrun by walking dead.


Indie horror comic label Scary Tales Publishing has announced the highly anticipated release of their newest horror comic, “LADY FRANKENSTEIN AND THE MUMMY’S BRAIN”.  Just in time for the spring comics conventions at both Long Beach Convention.

Chapter One in a six-book limited series – is a definite departure from the publisher’s short-form, self-contained anthologies and kid-centric adventure fare.  This saga for mature readers is a horror mash-up of the Frankenstein and Mummy legends, and features artwork from legendary international comic artist Manuel Martin.

Manuel has been part of the Scary Tales Publishing family from the start.  A regular artist for both Fractured Scary Tales and Monster Smash-Ups, he has worked in comics for over 30 years.  Published in Europe, his native Mexico, and here in the US, Manuel is a master of nuance, shadow, and atmosphere – the man can rock a comic image like few others.

Publisher Kevin M. Glover said: “After nurturing the premise for nearly a decade, I’m very proud of this comic.  We’re turning the classics on their head in unexpected ways that I think readers are going to love.  Besides the gender bending aspect of a female doctor, there’s some great locations and intrigue from the Egyptian consortium who hire her.  It’s a wild, globe-trotting ride, I can’t wait to share!”

Each issue of this newest title is a full-color comic book, and retails for just $5.00.  Like all of Scary Tales Publishing’s titles, it can also be purchased online at: www.FracturedScaryTales.com.

Hitch a ride with the master of setting as he blends and bends genres with science-rich, thought-provoking short stories. “Buy the ticket, take the ride.”

“A maestro of the field, Gene O’Neill’s stories are consistently well-executed. He writes with authority, depth, and loads of worldly and writerly experience, and delivers fascinating stuff.” – Darren Speegle

Along the way you will travel to the top of Mt. George, up and down Napa Valley, through Sacramento, and into the heart of the Bay Area, to the ‘Loin in San Francisco, Hotel Reo, Chapel of the Chimes, the back streets of Oakland, and other familiar dark places. The stories explore quantum entanglement, Visual Migraine Events, electro-shock treatment, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, and Tourette’s syndrome experimentally treated with Temporary Deep Brain Stimulation. And as you read you may start to notice all these stories are connected in a way.
