 RIPPED FROM THE HEADLINES

As the world frets over a rash of clown sightings, Elle Bourdain laughs. After being hired by a movie studio to promote the upcoming horror film, CLOWN, Elle starts an advanced advertising campaign.

Her agency hires actors in dozens of metropolitan areas to dress like clowns and frighten people. The campaign goes viral as schools shutdown, children refuse to play outside, and adult paranoia skyrockets. Elle basks in the glory of her professional victory… until she encounters a horrifying clown of her own.

And then the laughter stops.

About the author

 "JASON BRANT" is an anagram for Bas Trojann, a former Bigfoot hunter who, after being abducted (and subsequently returned) by aliens, decided to hang up his ghillie suit and enter the world of professional arm wrestling. Despite back-to-back first place finishes in the South Dakota World International Championship League, Bas receded from athletics to invent cheese and give Al Gore the initiative to create the internet.

Nearly a decade after writing the bestselling self-help series, Tomato Soup and Grilled Cheese (Cut into Four Pieces) for the Soul, Bas has left his life of notoriety and critical acclaim behind him to write existential, erotic poetry.

His wife washes their clothing on his abs.

If you think evil had been put to rest with Halocline, john g rees’ 2nd
book of his ‘anoxic zone’ series,
think again. Evil does not sleep, nor take a break as men do. It waits, but it
is not still. Patient, but never at peace. It waits until men take their break
on vigilance. Then the tendrils of greed, lust, power and jealousy insinuate
themselves within the fecund soil of the unguarded mind. That is just the
beginning. Evil does not want to be forever on the inside, just behind the
eyes. No, it wants to live among men, feed on their fear. It wants out!


 Sechra was just a child when she witnessed
man’s cruelty in the extreme. Her young mind became black with hatred for what
had been done to her family and people. Now this is what you call fertile soil.
In a moment of childhood ignorance, she embraced the seed of evil in an effort
to fill the void of all she had lost. It sprouted. Grew. A dark hand guided
her, unseen behind Sechra’s sparkling eyes. Years of practice and natural
ability rendered the girl a master stonecutter. No one noticed the sinister
nature within her sculpture, least of all Sechra, until it was too late. Then
all hell breaks loose.



 



‘Out
of Stone’, john g rees’ 4th horror novel, once again grabs hold of
the reader by the neck and brings them to places they’ve never been. And never
want to be. That’s the fun of it!



 



Out
of Stone, takes two characters from his earlier award winning
anoxic
zone
series
and gives them headline roles. They fulfill them rather tremendously; bringing
us into worlds we did not know existed, showing us horrors from theirs and
other lives that immediately become our own.



We
follow Sechra, who was a peculiar little girl as
Halocline ended and just a child when
she witnessed man’s cruelty in the extreme. 
Her young mind became black with hatred for what had been done to her
family and people. Her Aunt Karuna was there more often for the girl, as her
daughter Riana & Vlad, her husband, the Voivode, were more involved in the
workings of their people and land in Romania. Karuna most definitely thought
Sechra was a unique child. Her determination and strength of mind were amazing.
She had been through a lot in her young life, things that would have turned
others mad. Instead, she turned it out to art.



 Sechra had turned into quite the sculptor in
her teens, continuing on to amaze and confound her family, acquaintances, and
then the art world, none of which had never seen such hideous visions, let
alone imagine them.



Karuna
Danesti felt the evil in Sechra’s work and knew it had to be out in the world
as well. That was what Sechra’s work was saying. No one noticed the sinister
nature within her sculpture, least of all Sechra, until it was too late. Then
all hell breaks loose!







Meet the Malcolms. They've just moved in to a home they can't afford, they're trying to climb a social ladder that they don't belong on, and both are chasing careers that are just out of their grasp. They want a child, but every time they try, every attempt they make, fails. 

Charles Malcolm, successful bestselling writer of cutting-edge, timely pop-science books finds himself staring at the blank screen. Unable to top himself yet again, he descends into writer's block, and finds himself taking long walks through Boston's historic cemeteries, his dog at his side. 

Janet Malcolm finds herself chasing partnership at a high-powered law firm while facing her latest medical results -- she can't have children. Desperate, Janet will try anything to have a baby.

Charles watches as his wife seems to change before his eyes, spending more time with the mysterious and alluring couple next door. Then, one day a miracle occurs--Janet is pregnant. Charles is elated. Why wouldn't he be? But...was it a miracle? 

Charles realizes that he can't remember certain periods of time, and has horrifying glimpses of memories--cult members, blood, and some...thing, from the deep ocean, risen, hungry, red-eyed. As his new infant son grows ever larger, he begins to suspect that the boy may not have been conceived naturally. 

As Janet slips into madness, Charles begins to doubt everything in his life, from the people around him, from his next door neighbors, to his own wife, and finally—to his infant son.

In this chilling novel about a 1950s boys' summer camp gone awry, the former New York Times literary critic has created a brilliant coming-of-age story with undertones reminiscent of Lord of the Flies.
Christopher Lehmann-Haupt's novel is at once a fantasy, a barbed portrait of boyhood in the dawning of the Eisenhower era, and a no-holds-barred story of terror of the sort that won him praise for his previous novel, A Crooked Man.
Jerry Muller has been a regular at Camp Seneca for years. Now that he's a teenager and counselor, things don't seem quite right at his traditional summer haunt. As Jerry plunges into the mysteries around him, he finds himself growing up fast -- maybe too fast.
He's attracted to T.J., a pretty girl who might have a boyfriend but who flirts anyway, and he's shocked by the truth about his friend Oz, who's more interested in Jerry than in the likes of T.J. He sees something is strangely amiss with the husband and wife who own the camp. But above all, he's scared of the cruel game masterminded by Buck.
Of Seneca ancestry, Buck is a sinister, bigger-than-life expert on Indian lore. He is also an organizer of scary games who may just possibly be a psychopath and a killer, and in whose hands the camp's make-believe, designed to scare the kids, becomes first a savage and brutal test of strength, then, by small steps, genuinely dangerous.
As Jerry unravels the mysteries surrounding the ordinary-looking camp, he struggles to understand how "the Forbidden Woods," which have always been off-limits to campers as a kind of game and dare, have somehow become genuinely frightening -- all the more reason to discover the secrets that lie behind Camp Seneca's facade.
The story reaches its climax in a shocking scene that neither Jerry nor the reader is likely to forget. Christopher Lehmann-Haupt's new novel is a wicked, suspenseful, and deeply original tale.
