"It's like Black Mirror with a Paranormal edge."
It's the fear we all have using the internet: Who is watching? What have I left out there? David Clegg ignored that fear, posted his musings on the Dark Web, and paid the price. When a mysterious hacker hijacks his computer, Clegg is shown a series of real-time videos, each one a story of mankind's dark dealings with technology and the paranormal. As a voyeur, he is given one chance -- and only one chance -- to help those he's watching, unknowingly sealing his own fate in the process.

Told in six twisted storiesThe Immanent World: 404 is a wickedly imaginative collection of dark sci fi and the paranormal. For fans of horror anthologies like Stephen King's Night Shift or Clive Barker's Books Of Blood, movies like V/H/S or The ABC's Of Death, or TV shows like Black Mirror or Supernatural, weaving the familiar with the disturbingly dark.



Immanent - remaining within; indwelling; inherent.

Horror fans will enjoy this journey into the dark corners of the immanent world - a reality where the divine and demonic are not outside our natural world, but very much a part of it.

Red Room is a magazine of extreme horror and hardcore dark crime, full color and fully illustrated.

FICTION BY
Jack Ketchum, Meg Elison, Tim Waggoner, David James Keaton, Larry Hinkle, Tom Barlow, Nick Manzolillo, Josh Scott Wilson, and Gil Valle.

"The Phantom Video Stream" by Nick Manzolillo sets the tone with red-room atmospherics in the story of a man who discovers a hidden channel streaming from what may be another reality.

Tim Waggoner's "Are You Crazy?" answers its own question in shocking Waggoner style.

Larry Hinkle's "Meat Cute" opens with "Stop staring at her tits!" and ends with a coldblooded revelation. Short and not so sweet.

Tom Barlow's "Selfie" demonstrates that two heads aren't always better than one, not when they're spitting images.

Meg Elison's "The Middle Child" takes an unflinching look at fame and greed and the mania underlying video virality.

In "Sick Jokes" Josh Scott Wilson takes political incorrectness to new heights--and depths.

David James Keaton, aka DJK, takes us for a ride into brutal biker mayhem that hits like a jackhammer in "The Flowery." Some tattoos ain't cool.

Jack Ketchum reprises "Megan's Law," a disturbing look at what can happen when a child molester moves into a concerned dad's neighborhood. If you've never read this classic, you're in for a creepy treat, and if you have then you know it's definitely worth rereading.

Plus, an exclusive excerpt from the NYPD's "Cannibal Cop" Gil Valle's upcoming Comet Press release of his first novel A Gathering of Evil, which parallels the message-board fantasies that landed him in jail.

FEATURES
Duane Bradley takes an irresistible look at the Video Nasties and the uproar those "obscene" video cassettes caused in the UK back in the 1980s. Ben Arzate reviews a formerly out-of-print classic horror novel, which is making a howling comeback. Patrick King reviews one of the best of the recent horror movie releases.

Red Room interviews the phenomenal Meg Elison, and David L. Tamarin interviews Gil Valle, getting him to open up about his incarceration by the "thought police."

Red Room regular Barfly Bob taste-tests the World's Most F**ked Up adult beverages.

A surreal, behind the scenes glimpse at the Red Room headquarters with rogue reporter Brian J. McCarthy.
