The haunted mansion called Harrow is alive again -- and no one in Watch Point is safe from its deadly whisper. New York Times bestselling and Bram Stoker award-winning author Douglas Clegg embraces nightmarish horror in the 4th book of the Harrow series, which may be the most maniacal horror-fest of a haunted house novel you'll ever read. You've been warned! 

The old abandoned mansion of the damned at the edge of town infects the dreams and nightmares of those who sleep with its accrued evil. Children turn against parents, old friends arrive with hatchets in hand -- and only a handful of people are strong enough to resist the seductive whisper of Harrow's haunting. 

The Horror of the Damned...


The toxic waste of spirits and the occult trapped inside the abandoned house has begun leaking like its poison into the village itself. A teenage girl sleeps too much, but when she awakens her nightmares break loose. A little boy encounters the ultimate fear when the house calls to him. A young woman must face unspeakable terror to keep Harrow from destroying everything she loves. 

And somewhere within the house, a demented child waits with teeth like knives.

Beneath the hospital for the criminally insane, there's an older asylum...full of night cages... In Book 3 of the Criminally Insane Series, New York Times bestselling author Douglas Clegg blends psychological action-suspense with a twist of psychic horror as he unlocks the dangerous corridors of the Darden State Hospital for Criminal Justice in southern California for the most terrifying mother-son murder team in history. 

"Bloody Mary" Chilmark is certifiable -- just ask her doctor. The Darden State Hospital is home to the most dangerous psychopathic killers in the country. But Bloody Mary got out, and raised her baby away from that bad environment. 

She kept him in a cage...where he began to see dead people, all the time. 

Especially the ghosts of those he's killed... 

What a mother she turned out to be -- raising her son, "Doc" with her traditional family values, which often involved surgery -- because her son just has a knack for cutting people open. But Doc's been arrested, processed and held at Darden State -- and is considered one of the most dangerous of the hospital's inmates. 

When wildfires burn out of control in Southern California, authorities face the overwhelming task of relocating hundreds of Darden's patients to other prison hospitals before the raging inferno descend 

In the frenzy, "Bloody Mary" finds her opportunity to free her son. 

It's up to Trey Campbell and officer Jane Laymon to hunt for the mother-son duo in the dark underworld maze of the old asylum beneath the hospital.

From New York Times bestselling author Douglas Clegg comes a novel of heart-pounding suspense and supernatural horror. What secrets lie within the ancient place known as the Goat Dance? 

In winter, in the mountains, a darkness envelopes a town...a house on the edge of a lake holds the key to its horrifying secret.

A Haunted Lake...

Seven-year-old Teddy Amory should have died that winter's day on Clear Lake, when she fell through the ice while skating with her older brother, Jake. But something got inside her that day . . . something terrifying...

A Town in Shadows... 

Nightmarish forces lurk in the mountains of Virginia, and darkness has begun to spread like a shroud over the living. 

Those long-dead return in nightmares. Does someone – or something -- control these horrifying visions from within the mysterious halls of the Marlowe-Houston House on the edge of Clear Lake?

Now a young man named Coffey returns to Pontefract, Virginia, to find the woman he lost – and a town must face its terrifying past as a possessed child threatens to unleash an unspeakable horror.

A terrifying chiller of a horror novel from a master of the fiction of nightmares.

Includes the story “The Sun Dog”—set in the fictional town of Castle Rock, Maine

The Bram Stoker Prize-winner for Best Fiction Collection—four chilling novellas from Stephen King that will “grab you and not let go” (The Washington Post).

With the success of the Hulu series 11/22/63 starring James Franco and the highly anticipated The Dark Tower movie release, Stephen King's brand is stronger than ever. This collection, nominated for a Locus Award, is guaranteed to keep readers awake long after bedtime, and features an introduction and prefatory notes to each novella by the author. “Stephen King is a master storyteller, and you will never forget these stories,” raves the Seattle Times about Four Past Midnight.

One Past Midnight: “The Langoliers” takes a red-eye flight from LA to Boston into a most unfriendly sky. Only eleven passengers survive, but landing in an eerily empty world makes them wish they hadn’t. Something’s waiting for them, you see.

Two Past Midnight: “Secret Window, Secret Garden” enters the suddenly strange life of writer Mort Rainey, recently divorced, depressed, and alone on the shore of Tashmore Lake. Alone, that is, until a figure named John Shooter arrives, pointing an accusing finger.

Three Past Midnight: “The Library Policeman” is set in Junction City, Iowa, an unlikely place for evil to be hiding. But for small businessman Sam Peebles, who thinks he may be losing his mind, another enemy is hiding there as well—the truth. If he can find it in time, he might stand a chance.

Four Past Midnight: “The Sun Dog,” a menacing black dog, appears in every Polaroid picture that fifteen-year-old Kevin Delevan takes with his new camera, beckoning him to the supernatural. Old Pop Merrill, Castle Rock’s sharpest trader, aims to exploit The Sun Dog for profit, but this creature that shouldn’t exist at all, is a very dangerous investment.
