  • Invasion (A C.H.A.O.S. Novel) by Jon S. Lewis – Lewis pens a twisting tale where “Colt McAlister is drawn into a war against things he thought only existed in comic books.” His other works include the co-authored Grey Griffins: The Clockwork Chronicles young adult series and the Free Realms comic.
  • To Each Their Darkness a non-fiction book for writers by Gary Braunbeck – Explore the world of writing horror from a Bram Stoker and International Horror Guild award-winning author’s point of view.
