Coming 2021 from Poltergeist Press it’s Cut to Care: A Collection of Little Hurts by Aaron Dries. I couldn’t find an official press release on Poltergeist Press’s website. As I was scrolling through Twitter today, I came across a tweet by Poltergeist Press. Aaron Dries confirmed the news with a retweet.
After visiting Poltergeist Press, I decided to expand on this post with some recent and upcoming releases. Their lineup is so strong, and I need to catch up on their catalogue, which is filled with new releases and re-releases. Poltergeist Press publishes in both Russian and English. I just put these titles on my TBR stack. Just look at their beautiful book covers. You know they care about the books they’re selling. Poltergeist Press can be found here.
Cut To Care: A Collection of Little Hurts by Aaron Dries
Kelli Owen’s Black Bubbles
Kelli Owen’s Black Bubbles is a re-release by Poltergeist Press. It dropped April 10th 2020 in hardcover, paperback and ebook. The cover looks intriguing! You can buy a copy here.
Kelli Owen’s debut collection returns! Featuring a foreword by Thomas F. Monteleone
Horror is pessimism at its bleakest. Worst-case scenario. The darker side of reality. The glass half-empty. The situation unfathomable. In Black Bubbles, Kelli Owen presents classic genre tropes–ghosts, murderers, zombies, what you’d expect (sans sharks)–but it’s the characters, rather than the tropes, that experience the story, speak of the horrors, and sometimes survive the inevitable. Sometimes.
A decades-old crime shocks a family as evidence points to one of their own…An ancient evil hitchhikes its way to freedom…A child has an unusual fascination with decay…A woman excuses premeditation…Death takes a holiday…Science and good intentions make horrific bedfellows…A man hides from nightmares that invade his waking world…
Kelli Owen’s first collection gathers over 60,000 words, including a handful of out-of-print, difficult-to-find previously published work, a plethora of new pieces, story notes, drawings inspired by the title story, and an introduction by the legendary Thomas Monteleone.
Tim Meyer’s Dead Daughters
Just look at that cover. All that blood has my horror heart racing. Poltergeist Press is releasing this one April 16th 2020. If the books anything like the cover, it’s going to be a wild ride indeed. You can pre-order your copy here.
Drew Lowery is living the American Dream. He has the perfect family, a stable job, and a beautiful home in the suburbs of central New Jersey. Things can’t get much better. But what seems like the ideal life is suddenly upended when he receives a blank envelope in the mail.
Inside lies a picture of his daughter, a photograph of her violent murder. Only it can’t be her. He just tucked her in and kissed her goodnight ten minutes ago. But the mysterious Polaroid is only the beginning.
There’s the van following his daughter to school. The man she sees outside her window late at night. The fact someone entered her room while the Lowerys slept peacefully.
Local authorities are clueless. No leads, no clues, and ultimately—no answers. Drew launches his own investigation, falling into a hole of lies and deceit, a truth he never saw coming. Dead Daughters is the new twisted thriller from Tim Meyer, author ofThe Switch House and Kill Hill Carnage.
Matt Hayward’s Those Below the Tree House
Poltergeist Press is releasing The Below the Tree House on June 11, 2020. The cover looks amazing! You can pre-order it here.
After an attack leaves Tony’s stepfather wounded, his thirteenth birthday descends into a nightmare. His stepdad is home, a bite on his neck, as Riverside’s only officer searches the woodlands for the aggressor. Tony is told not to cause a panic among the few kids living in Riverside’s mountaintop community, and his best friends Ben Rodgers and Lee Tally are unaware.
Overnight, the condition of Tony’s stepfather worsens. His mother won’t leave the bedside. And soon, Riverside is turned upside down as residents morph into moss-covered abominations. Freaks.
Joined by the local bully, the boys seek refuge in Rodgers’ tree house, trapped inside as neighbors, and even family, claw the trunk… Food and water soon run low.
With all hope lost, the boys decide to have their first of what they can before time runs out. Their first drink, their first cigarette, their first of anything at all. Like baby birds thrown from the nest, they will need to fly or fall. And time is running short.
For his thirteenth birthday, Tony learns the world has teeth. And someone else is out there, too, watching. An adult in a butcher’s apron. Waiting…
Those Below The Tree House is the new supernatural coming-of-age from the Bram Stoker Award-nominated author of What Do Monsters Fear? and A Penny For Your Thoughts.
Lady Luck by Matt Hayward and Robert Ford
Lady Luck is the second book in The Lowback Series. It picks up two years after A Penny For Your Thoughts. It’s dropping August 27th 2020. You can pre-order a copy here.
Ford and Hayward return with the highly anticipated sequel to A Penny For Your Thoughts!
After two years of silence, an email from an old friend:
“Joe…I don’t think we’re finished.”
The words put Joe on the road—heading right into the thick of things, all over again.
In Lowback, Joe and his friends had faced off against the Crimson Sisters, and they had gotten away unscathed—barely.
But Joe is now heading to a new town to meet a woman by the name of Lady Luck—the self-proclaimed savior of Clintonburg.
Find the Queen. Her game is simple enough, but in her hands, it will unleash hell.
