Nausea by Ed Kurtz


eBook ($4.99) | Paperback ($16.99) | 100-copy Limited Hardcover ($50.00)

Since the night he made an ill-advised decision to commit a pair of revenge killings, Nick has made his living as a professional murderer. Early on, he dispensed with guilt or emotion, but after a routine hit gets messy Nick gets sick—and the conscience he thought he’d killed along with dozens of other marks comes creeping back into his brain. Now Nick’s profession and life are on the line, and he has begun stalking a perfectly innocent couple to see if he can snuff them out without the slightest hint of remorse…or if the humanity he worked so hard to suppress is making up for lost time.

A dark noir novel about human connection and repentance, Nausea is the story of a sociopathic killer in a war with himself, a war in which the lives of an uninvolved couple hang in the balance.

"A gritty, hard-edged tale with just the right amount of feeling makes this one hell of a story. All of Ed's gifts are on display here: fast pacing, memorable characters and brutal action that aren't easy to forget, but make for great reading." —Terrence McCauley, Award Winning Writer of Sympathy For The Devil, Prohibition, and Slow Burn

"In Nausea, Ed Kurtz explores whether damned souls can be redeemed. Filled with unspeakable evil, but also glimpses of humanity, Nausea is a poignant and imposing novel." —Jon Bassoff, author of Corrosion

"Ed Kurtz's Nausea grabs your attention like a cue stick to your eye, a garrote around your throat, and a rock crashing into the back of your head. If you're looking for that thriller featuring a hit man with a heart of gold, go look somewhere else. Kurtz—and his introspective killer-for-hire Nick—are so good at what they do, it might just make you sick." —Tim O'Mara, author of Crooked Numbers and Dead Red

"Though Nausea is—on its surface—a crime novel, Kurtz’s knack for existential horror imbues it with dreamlike surreality. The end result is a vertiginous trip through a purgatory of his protagonist’s own making, and a redemption tale that will keep you guessing until you turn the final page." —Chris Holm, author of The Killing Kind

As a fierce snowstorm descends upon the sleepy little town, a Good Samaritan stops to help a catatonic woman sitting in the middle of the icy road, and is never seen or heard from again. When the police find his car, it is splattered in more blood than the human body can hold.

While the storm rages on, the wave of disappearances continue, the victims sharing only one commonality: they are all male.

Their search will lead them on a journey filled with unspeakable horrors that are all connected to a mysterious Woman in White.

"Horror born straight from a nor'easter, Dearborn's Woman in White is a great read for a winter night—with a monster I'll never forget." —Christopher Irvin, author of Federales and Burn Cards

"Kristin Dearborn's Woman in White is a rip-roaring monster tale with sharp-eyed characterization and something to say about the power dynamics between men and woman. Thought-provoking and entertaining as hell!" —Tim Waggoner, author of Eat the Night

"Great stuff! Suspenseful, quickly paced, unpredictable and wonderfully evil tale. Kristin Dearborn’s best yet!” —Jeff Strand, author of Pressure

Babylon Terminal by Greg F. Gifune


eBook ($4.99) | Paperback ($16.99) | 52-copy Signature Series Hardcover ($99.00)

In a nightmare world of darkness and violence lies a city that is home to those who inhabit the dreams of the living, those who sleep in daylight and struggle to survive the night.

But there are some who break the rules, who believe there may be something better out there beyond their city of dreams, those who run in search of a promised land of sunshine and peace.

Enter the Dreamcatchers, an elite law enforcement unit assigned to hunt down runners and bring them back, dead or alive. Monk is one of the best, a dark and brooding, by-the-book Dreamcatcher with a reputation for extreme violence. But when his enigmatic wife Julia runs, Monk must break the rules himself, and find her before fate or his fellow Dreamcatchers do.

In a hallucinatory quest for redemption, Monk chases the woman he loves across a city of nightmares and into the wastelands, where unimaginable horrors and wonders await them both, and soon learns there are realities far deadlier than their prison of darkness, his love for Julia or a life together in the light.

This is the world of darkness, of endless night and doomed dreams. This is the beginning and the end.

This is Babylon Terminal.

The Blade this Time by Jon Bassoff


eBook ($4.99) | Paperback ($16.99) | 52-copy Signature Series Hardcover ($99.00)

A man wakes to find himself below ground in the abandoned subway stations of New York City. He has no idea how he got there, no idea who he is. In his pocket he finds only a wad of blood-stained cash and a deck of playing cards.

Once above ground, he rents out a cheap apartment, previously occupied by an enigmatic artist named Max Leider who'd left most everything behind—books, clothes, personal letters. But most peculiar are a series of paintings, each one of a mysterious woman hidden behind a curtain.

Without an identity of his own, the man becomes fascinated with Leider. He begins wearing his clothes. He begins painting on his canvases. He begins taking on his obsessions. But as his persona fully transforms into Max Leider, he will find some horrifying truths about the artist...and himself.

"Jon Bassoff's The Blade This Time is a nightmarish descent into the underbelly of New York City and the darkest corners of the psyche. A gritty, disorienting ride." —Paul Tremblay, author of A Head Full of Ghosts

"The Blade This Time a dark masterpiece of classic horror.  Bassoff blends art, insanity, violence, and obsession into a haunting nightmare that you don't want to stop. Truly, Bassoff at his best." —C.J. Howell, author of The Last of the Smoking Bartenders

"Jon Bassoff's latest full-length piece of noir, The Blade This Time, transports you into the bowels of urban, subterranean, humankind. Literally. A riveting, tightly woven masterpiece of hard-boiled loneliness, I was held mesmerized by it. Part Charlie Huston, part Henry Miller with a sprinkling of Bukowski, this is a novel you will not want to miss." —Vincent Zandri, New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author of The Remains and Orchard Grove. 

"Dark and disturbing, a guided tour through one man's private hell. You can feel the pain, touch the grime, and smell the decay. I burned right through it, tripping on the feverish story arc, and came out the other side more than a little uneasy." —Tim Curran, author of Doll Face
