The emergency room is no stranger to death, but not like this. Normally, a death serves as a final ending. Now, as a parasite straight out of hell slithers from the body of a serial killer, death has only begun its terrifying, grisly rampage through the small hospital and town.

A surgeon, a fugitive, a pregnant mother, a hospital worker—each serves as host for this spawn of the Devildevil, driven to commit the vilest of acts. Murder, infanticide, nymphomania, cannibalism—their flesh and bones become puppets in service of Satan’s grotesque theater. Some brave few may try to stand against this evil, but as the Darklings closes in around them, are they digging for clues or digging their own graves?

Packed with genuine thrills and pure terror, Darklings by Grand Master of Horror Ray Garton will truly scare the hell out of you.

A flesh-and-soul-devouring addiction runs rampant through the dark playground of the Hollywood elite in this tale of horror from a Bram Stoker Award winner.
 
Welcome to Los Angeles, where every addiction is encouraged. . . .
 
Struggling Hollywood screenwriter Tom Prentice can hardly believe that the emaciated and mutilated corpse lying on the morgue slab was once his ex-wife. Then his roommate’s missing brother turns up in a local hospital having sliced open his own chest and legs for some sick, inexplicable reason. In Oakland, the Reverend Garner, a recovering addict, leaves his ministry in search of his teenage daughter, who was last seen in the company of her ghoulish kidnapper. And the Los Angeles police are meanwhile baffled in their hunt for the elusive “Wetbones” serial killer who leaves nothing of his victims behind except a damp, grisly pile of bones.
 
Though Tom, the reverend, and the LAPD are on separate quests for answers, they are all being led into the darkest shadows of Hollywood, where the debauchery never ceases and pleasure is a drug that devours human flesh, blood, and sanity. But the true source of the all-consuming addiction is the most horrifying revelation of all, for it is not of this rational Earth.
 
From International Horror Guild Award–winning author John Shirley, the acclaimed “splatterpunk” classic Wetbones combines the monstrous inventiveness of H. P. Lovecraft with the exquisite excess of Clive Barker. A true masterwork of modern terror, it’s decidedly not for the faint of heart.
