New Charity Anthology

Jack’s story Mother and Daughter appears in the new charity anthology, Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep, a NECON Anthology benefitting the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

There is no greater horror in the world than watching a loved one battle cancer … especially if that loved one is a child. But we are not powerless against this disease, and some of the world’s finest purveyors of nightmares have come together to fight a monster far scarier than anything they could ever dream up. Necon E-Books is honored to present NOW I LAY ME DOWN TO SLEEP, an anthology of horror bedtime stories from which 100% of all proceeds will be donated to The Jimmy Fund. Edited by P.D. Caceck and Laura J. Hickman and featuring cover artwork by Cortney Skinner, this anthology contains contributions from the incredible roster listed in the Table of Contents, all of whom have donated their work in support of this essential cause. Available exclusively on Amazon.com in trade paperbacks and digital editions, please join us in this fight by purchasing your copy today. And in the words of our friends and partners at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, “Thank you for helping us conquer cancer.”

Garden of Fiends on Sale

Garden of Fiends: Tales of Addiction Horror, is only $2.99 for Kindle, now through July 4th!

The intoxication from a pint of vodka, the electric buzz from snorting cocaine, the warm embrace from shooting heroin–drinking and drugging provides the height of human experience. It’s the promise of heaven on earth, but the hell that follows is a constant hunger, a cold emptiness. The craving to get high is a yearning as intense as that felt by any blood-thirsty monster.

Jack’s story Returns is featured, alongside works by Kealan Patrick Burke, Max Booth III, and more!

Monthly Kindle Deal – Secret Life of Souls

The Secret Life of Souls is on special for Amazon Kindle!

$1.99 for the ebook and only $3.99 to add the audio version!

The Secret Life of Souls is a terrifying, can’t­-put-­it-­down narrative of a family on the verge of disintegration. It’s also a classic, heart­-tugging, story of a girl and her dog. Feels like Matheson in his prime. Clean, stripped­-down writing, with an incredible pace. Jack Ketchum and Lucky McKee have written one hell of a novel, one that speaks of all the things dogs mean to us. If you loved The Story of Edgar Sawtelle, as I did, you’ll want to spend some time with Delia and Caity.” (Stephen King)

“It is hard not to say that The Secret Life of Souls, which is actually sort of transcendent, represents the Bob, Son of Battle of horror novels. It is told with grace, warmth, humor, and plenty of good old narrative muscle to spare. But this book is more than even that. Ketchum and McKee not only collaborate, they managed to reach far down into themselves. This is a beautiful book.” (Peter Straub, author of ‘Ghost Story,’ ‘Koko,’ and ‘A Dark Matter’)

This is a special you won’t want to miss!
