Ten years ago: Gabriel Knight, age 11, takes a bike ride to the park and becomes one of the ... disappeared.

When Teri Knight answers a knock at the front door, she discovers her son Gabriel standing in the doorway. Only it can't be her son. Gabe took a bike ride to the park ten years ago, at age 11, and became one of the disappeared. He would be 21 now and this boy ... this boy is the same age as Gabe was when he went missing. Except for the color of his eyes, he looks exactly like her son. He's wearing the same clothes her son wore the day he disappeared. He even refers to her as Mom.

If he is Gabe, how is that possible?

Why hasn't he aged?

Where has he been for ten years?

And why is he so weak and in apparent ill health?

Teri is struggling with each of these questions and barely getting to know this boy who has arrived so unexpectedly, miraculously at her door, when a team of armed men arrive at the house in search of the boy.

For Gabe and Teri the clock is now ticking - and time is running out.

Who are these men?

What do they want?

Is this boy really Teri's lost son, Gabe?

A dark thriller with a highly unusual and inventive twist.

About The Author



David B. Silva's short fiction has appeared in The Year’s Best Horror, The Year’s Best Fantasy & Horror, and The Best American Mystery Stories. In 1991, he won a Bram Stoker Award for his short story, “The Calling.” His first collection, Through Shattered Glass, was published by Gaunlet Press in 2001. In 2009, Dark Regions published his collection of eleven new stories and one reprint, In The Shadows of Kingston Mills.

In addition, he's written eight novels, including The Disappeared.

He lives a subdued life in the surreal city of Las Vegas, where there are many stories still to be told...

Bentley Little says: "Combining the deft characterization of vintage Stephen King with the literary subtlety of the best of Ramsey Campbell, David B. Silva has for years been turning out stunning fiction that has never gotten the audience it deserves. In my opinion, he is one of the best damn authors working today."

Thumbs up

The Dark Thriller series continues with a brand new novel by William Ollie:



Dark Regions Press is excited to announce a brand new novel in the Dark Thriller series, Fifteen Minutes by William Ollie. The novel will be available for preorder on our website in March, but you can read more about the book via this link:

Click here to read more about Fifteen Minutes by William Ollie!

It is a ring, forged deep within the jungles of Ecuador, centuries ago.

Sixteen-year-old Simon had no idea what he was getting into when his mother packed him off to spend the summer at Granny's house.

A cat's eye ring with mystical powers.

The first thing he noticed was the hip clothing, the uncharacteristic sultry language and wild, futuristic hairdo. The second was the cool ring she wore.

The power to become another, to ward off an enemy by becoming that enemy.

Now his grandmother is dead, and if he hadn't killed her, he'd certainly had a hand in her demise. He should've been horrified at what lay before him, dismayed at the part he had played. But he was neither of these things. He was excited, elated, because what lay before him was not his dead grandmother, but a mystery as deep as the meaning of life itself, an adventure of a lifetime.

One he can't wait to embark upon.



Praise for William Ollie

"(The Damned has) Muscular prose brimming with confidence, the novel loaded with gloriously twisted scenes.
--Bryan Smith, author of Queen Of Blood and The Freakshow

"(The Damned is) A thoroughly riveting, fascinating novel."
--Jeff Strand, author of Pressure and The Haunted Forest Tour

"(Sideshow is) Lurid but memorable... a wonderfully weird conclusion as nostalgic as an old EC comic..."
--Publisher's Weekly

William Ollie lives in Orange Park, Florida, with a wife
and way too many cats. His online presence is maintained at

Thumbs up NEW NOVEL: Dark Surge by Gina Ranalli



We are excited to announce a brand new novel, Dark Surge by Gina Ranalli! You can preorder the novel now in our leather-bound signed by both author and artist Deluxe Thirteen Hardcover with slipcase edition.

Click here to read more about or order Dark Surge by Gina Ranalli!


Recently divorced Tess Waters is an attractive young professional woman and mother of Emily, her precocious six-year-old daughter. Tess cannot understand why her ex-husband, Josh, who obviously still cares for his ex and madly loves his little daughter, had to spoil their marriage by having a torrid affair with another woman.

There's certainly no love lost between Tess Waters and the "other woman"--Josh's now live-in girlfriend, the mysterious and highly sexual Gillian. Indeed, Tess assumes that her divorce has been caused by Josh following the compulsions of his..."lower" brain, rather than his primary one. Indeed, Josh does seem mesmerized by the beautiful Gillian, who seems to be able to anticipate and fulfill his every desire.

But, as the relationship between Josh and Gillian starts to become more serious, simmering tensions between Tess and Gillian, and resentments concerning raising Emily boil over. Suddenly, Tess' home begins to be subjected to a bizarre infestation of flies. The infestation quickly spreads and soon Tess and her daughter are fighting for their very lives and souls against a powerful supernatural force that seeks to destroy them. Someone's hiding a dark, deadly and ancient secret, and Tess' chance meeting with a small band of runaway teens living on the streets, one of who's a practicing Wiccan witch, seems to offer their only hope of survival. Can this strange alliance between street-teens and soccer mom be sufficient to defeat a relentless and implacable unearthly enemy and the nightmarish dark surge of ravening deadly insects under its control that threaten to engulf them all?


Praise for Gina Ranelli:

Praise For House of Fallen Trees:

"Genre fans nowadays have to turn over a lot of stones to find M.R. James, Robert Wise, Algernon Blackwood and Shirley Jackson's presence in their horror. Well, they need look no further than House of Fallen Trees."
- Garrett Cook for Withersin

"VERY creepy..."
- Dread Central

"It's practically screaming to be made into a movie. It has that good old-fashioned quality but doesn't tread into outdated territory."
- Jordan Krall, author of Fistful of Feet and King Scratch

"A creepy story with strong characters and a little early Stephen King influence."
- David Agranoff, author of The Vegan Revolution . . . with Zombies

Praise For Suicide Girls:

Suicide Girls in the Afterlife is weird and fun and hauntingly bittersweet. I read it in one evening and enjoyed it very much.
- Brian Keene, author of "The Rising" and "The Conqueror Worms"

Thumbs up Fangtooth by Shaun Jeffrey, a new novel from Dark Regions Press



Dark Regions Press is proud to announce that the brand new novel Fangtooth by Shaun Jeffrey, author of the novel The Kult is now available for preorder on our website in both our leather-bound signed by both author and artist Deluxe Thirteen Hardcover with slipcase edition and our 100 Signed and Numbered Limited Hardcover edition!

Click here to read more about Fangtooth by Shaun Jeffrey

After the death of his wife, Bruce Holden moves to the quaint coastal fishing village of Mulberry with his son, Jack. He is hoping for a fresh start, but the locals greet their arrival with mixed reactions, from friendliness to open hostility. Bruce puts it down to them being outsiders, but when a tourist is killed while swimming, the real horror is unleashed. There's something ravenous in the sea. Something that's coming ashore in search of prey. Now Bruce and Jack find themselves embroiled in a nightmare where humankind is no longer at the top of the food chain.

Praise for Shaun Jeffrey:

"With Kult, Shaun Jeffrey hits one out of the park with this creepy, character-driven thriller that starts with a jolt, stays in the fast lane, and plunges into the darkest territory of the human mind. It's a bumpy ride through nightmare country." -- Jonathan Maberry, multiple Bram Stoker Award winning author of PATIENT ZERO and PUNISHER: NAKED KILL.

"Jeffrey, one of horror's rising young stars, has really hit his stride with THE KULT. Part mystery, part police procedural, part horror story, it's one thrilling ride. Jeffrey had me guessing at the killer's identity half a dozen times, and the reveal, when it finally came, knocked me over. You don't want to miss this one!" --Nate Kenyon, author of THE REACH and THE BONE FACTORY.

Praise for Evilution by Shaun Jeffrey:

"A classic thriller from a talented new author" -- Guy N. Smith, author of NIGHT OF THE CRABS and THE SLIME BEAST.

"Shaun Jeffrey's debut novel is haunting, disturbing and spooky as hell" -- Tim Lebbon, Stoker Award winning author of FACE.


About the author



Shaun Jeffrey was brought up in a house in a cemetery, so it was only natural for his prose to stray towards the dark side when he started writing. He has had three novels published, 'The Kult', 'Deadfall' and 'Evilution', and one collection of short stories, 'Voyeurs of Death'. Among his other writing credits are short stories published in Cemetery Dance, Surreal Magazine, Dark Discoveries and Shadowed Realms. The Kult was optioned for film by Gharial Productions.

The annual Specialty Press Award recognizes a publisher outside the mainstream New York City publishing community that specializes in dark-themed fiction. Winners are typically "small presses" specializing in limited editions, small print runs, or the work of new and relatively unknown authors. The winner of the award is determined by a majority vote of the HWA Board of Trustees.

Joe Morey's Dark Regions Press emphasizes horror and publishes novels, novellas, single-author collections, and poetry. They publish finely-bound limited editions and trade editions, and their authors have included Michael A. Arnzen, Bruce Boston, Angeline Hawkes, Charlee Jacob, Scott Nicholson, Stephen Mark Rainey, Tony Richards, Gord Rollo, Harry Shannon, David B. Silva, Marge Simon, Jeff Strand, and David Niall Wilson, among many others.

Dark Regions was started by Morey in 1985, and their books have since won numerous awards. They've also published several periodicals, including Dark Regions magazine.

Past winners of the Specialty Press Award include Tartarus Press, Delirium Books, Earthling Publications, PS Publishing, and Bloodletting Press. Cemetery Dance won the first Specialty Press Award in 1997.

Cool Midnight's Angels by Tony Richards, third novel in the Raine's Landing series



Dark Regions Press is proud to announce that the third book in the Raine's Landing series, Midnight's Angels by Tony Richards is now available for preorder on our website in both our leather-bound signed by both author and artist Deluxe Thirteen Hardcover with slipcase edition and our 100 Signed and Numbered Limited Hardcover edition! Midnight's Angels is one of editor/publisher Joe Morey's favorite choices of best novels from Dark Regions Press this year!

Click here to read more about Midnight's Angels by Tony Richards!


It may look like a perfectly ordinary New England town, a little larger than most. But Raine's Landing, Massachusetts, holds some very dark secrets. The real witches of Salem fled here just before the Trials of 1692, and the place has been full of magic -- the good and the bad kind -- ever since. And a curse hangs over the whole population ... there are so many people because nobody born here can ever leave.

Now the Landing is facing its worst peril yet, monstrous flying creatures in the service of an evil older than the Universe itself. They have an unpleasant way of possessing people to their side, and their powers keep on growing until little can withstand them. Most of the major adepts succumb ... there are only two left to defend Raine's Landing. And the town's chief troubleshooter, ex-cop Ross Devries, has an enormous challenge on his hands. He needs to get his former sidekick, Cassie, back into the fight. And if they are to have any slightest chance of winning through, they're going to have to make some very strange new friends, and new alliances to save Raine's Landing, and save the world.


"A hell of a writer, one of today's masters of dark fiction."
--Mario Guslandi, Horror World

"Richards is a master at combining horror, fantasy and humor in a way that will mesmerize readers from cover to cover."
--Rhomylly Forbes, Romantic Times Book Reviews

"The rest of us stand on the sidelines with eyes wide open at his audacity and wonder what he'll do next."
--Peter Tennant, Black Static

"By weaving this fantasy into a modern setting, Richards creates something unique."
--Clay Bye, Alternative Reads

In case you don't recognize the name Garrett Cook, HDC People, that's me. Gina is a wonderful person and a fantastic writer. Her Bizarro and her horror work are both top notch, which is incredible because although the genres are interconnected and meet at several junctures, Bizarro authors don't have sensibilities that lend them to masterworks of quiet horror, which House of Fallen Trees was. I expect good things from Dark Surge. You should too.
