Some seaweed, a jellyfish and some material brought back from the Peabodie expedition to Antarctica. An innoccuous enough blend you might think. But when a storm in the North Atlantic frees a sample that has been dormant inside an old wreck, the new creature finds that it is hungry. Our plastics-oriented society has given it an abundant supply of food... more than enough for it to grow, and build, and spread.

Can anyone escape the terror that is... THE CREEPING KELP?


Praise for William Meikle:

Aims for pure entertainment ... and hits the mark.
- Simon Morden, VECTOR

The author is relentless; just when you catch your breath, something new and exciting happens, sending you spinning into another part of the adventure, and keeping you flipping pages to see what's next.
- David Wilbanks, Horrorworld

... solid prose commands attention right from the start and carries the reader straight through to the climax.
- Garrett Peck for Cemetery Dance #40

...descriptions so vivid you can almost hear the clash of the swords and smell the blood.
- Murder and Mayhem Bookclub

Anyone who's fond of a good story and a good piece of writing will enjoy Meikle's clever conceits, interesting and earthy characters, and well turned prose.
- Dread Central

Meikle is a writer that can grace the page with words of beauty whilst twisting a nightmare into grotesque shapes before your eyes.
- Len Maynard and Mick Sims

William Meikle's short stories and novels are shining examples of what is missing in horror fiction today: atmospheric in style, old-school in character, with an intriguing story to be told. Utmost use is made of the author's native Scotland in many of his tales, and his forays into the Cthulhu Mythos stories are original in concept, building on Lovecraft's works.
- David Wynn, Mythos Books

The positive reviews for Multiplex Fandango by Weston Ochse keep rolling in. Read of a few of them:

Paperback Horror says "What we’re seeing here is quite possibly the most comfortable, relaxed, and expert takeover that the horror genre has ever seen." Read the rest of the review at:
http://www.paperbackhorror.com/2011/...ton-ochse.html

Dread Central says "There is not a single weak story in the sixteen, which makes picking the best of the bunch something of an exercise in futility." Read the rest of the review at:
http://www.dreadcentral.com/reviews/...-fandango-book

Shroud Magazine says "Weston Ochse is the real deal: a military veteran and former intelligence officer whose resume is no doubt peppered with events he can't talk about, who travels to exotic locales on government business to this day and lives with his wife in the American desert Southwest." Read the rest of the review at:
http://shroudmagazinebookreviews.blo...-fandango.html

If you folks know of a review of Multiplex Fandango by Weston Ochse that should be mentioned, let me know!

Thumbs up The Engines of Sacrifice by James Chambers, coming this Tuesday



Dark Regions Press is proud to present a new collection of four Lovecraftian novellas, The Engines of Sacrifice by James Chambers:


Click here to read more about The Engines of Sacrifice by James Chambers!


In hidden places, they sleep and dream, and through their dreams they touch humanity--but their touch brings only the stains of horror, death, and madness...until the day the Old Ones return.

In The Engines of Sacrifice, acclaimed writer James Chambers delivers four nightmare novellas inspired by the Mythos of H. P. Lovecraft.

Investigation 37: In the late years of the Vietnam War, Lavender May runs away from home to search for freedom and peace in New York City, but instead, she finds only a world of magic, witchcraft, and lies.

The Ugly Birds: Only one thing could save Carmine Darabont's comics magazine from going under: publishing the next chapter of the hit series "The Otherworlders." But what dark secret drives its creator--Carmine's ex-fiancé--to refuse to deliver it?

The Hidden Room: At the height of the Cold War, Doctor Calvin Lenox is a member of the Nuclear Emergency Search Team. With his life spiraling into despair, he confronts the mystery of a runaway Soviet defector and the death of three men, only to find himself at the mercy of...the Faceless God.

The Engines of Sacrifice: What is the power of words? Can they control the fabric of reality? In a horrifying new world, underground author Rowley Cray struggles against a totalitarian government gone insane and the possibility that he can control the souls of the dead.


Praise for James Chambers:

"Chambers is adept at striking the perfect balance of darkness and light...." --Dark Wisdom

"...Chambers acknowledges the internal monsters of the psyche. He also adroitly addresses the external evils; those terrors that are kept at bay for the sense of sanity. --Hellnotes

"...for those who like their horror straight up and to the point..."
--Horror Fiction Review

"Chambers has a skill for evoking the emotions that are needed in the horror field." --David Agranoff, Postcards from a Dying World

"Chambers writes stories that are paced fast enough to friction burn a reader's eyeballs." --Horror Reader.com

Thumbs up Gathered Dust and Others by W.H. Pugmire



Dark Regions Press is excited to announce that Gathered Dust and Others by W.H. Pugmire is now available in both our leather-bound signed by both author and artist Deluxe Lettered Hardcover with slipcase edition and 100 Signed and Numbered Limited Hardcover edition.

PREORDER SPECIAL: Order the 100 Signed and Numbered Limited Hardcover while its still in the preorder stage and get it at $5 off the cover price!


Click here to learn more about Gathered Dust and Others by W.H. Pugmire!


With his first collection from Dark Regions Press, W. H. Pugmire continues his radical and obsessive reinterpretations of H. P. Lovecraft's brilliant fiction. Among the book's original pieces is the title story, "Gathered Dust," a sequel to J. Vernon Shea's "The Haunter of the Graveyard." Set in Arkham, this tale of utter strangeness concerns the legacy of Randolph Carter and a monstrous burying ground where the phantoms of the past linger so as to feed upon the living. In "Depths of Dreams and Madness" we journey to Pugmire's Sesqua Valley, wherein we find Lovecraft's artist, Richard Upton Pickman and Robert E. Howard's mad poet, Justin Geoffrey, tainted by the valley's supernatural lunacy. With "These Deities of Rarest Air," Pugmire continues his exploration of the prose-poem/vignette sequence, in a work that deliciously evokes the mystic aura of not only Lovecraft but Clark Ashton Smith as we ll. With artful decadence and a pen dipped into the dark fin-de-siècle poetry of Oscar Wilde and Charles Baudelaire, Pugmire celebrates his beloved genre of fantastic fiction with works that only his cracked skull could conceive. Jeffrey Thomas has provided a provocative Introduction.

Pugmire's books include The Tangled Muse (Centipede Press, 2011), Some Unknown Gulf of Night (Arcane Wisdom Press, 2011) and The Strange Dark One--Tales of Nyarlathotep (Miskatonic River Press, 2011). His second book from Hippocampus Press, Uncommon Places, will be published next year. He is currently writing a collection of Lovecraftian tales with Jeffrey Thomas, for a book to be published by Dark Regions Press.


"Wilum Hopfrog Pugmire is the prose-poet of the horror/fantasy field; he may be the best prose-poet we have."
- S. T. Joshi

"In my opinion, he's the best living writer of Lovecraftiana."
- Toren Atkinson, of the band Darkest of the Hillside Thickets

"Sometimes subtle, sometimes as blunt as a rosewood coffin, Pugmire's stories are always emotional. Drawing from his own rather bizarre life, it's often difficult to separate the facts from the fiction, even for those who presume to know him."
- Ken Abner, editor of Terminal Frights

"Amazing and vastly underappreciated (but that is quickly changing! !!) Wilum H. Pugmire's unique Lovecraftian fiction has graced the pages of many(! !!) magazines and anthologies. This new release by Pugmire WILL taint the hearts of Lovecraftian fans with all manner of eldritch joys!"
- Joseph S. Pulver, Sr., author of SIN & ashes and Blood Will Have Its Season

Jerry is an over-the-road trucker with a couple of exes and a few late payments to make. Sometimes it seems like the least of his problems is that he's a werewolf - until he wakes up in the middle of a rodeo where he's the bull! Forced to compete in bizarre, brutal events for the pleasure of a bloodthirsty crowd, where death is "extreme sports entertainment" for the masses. Jerry must choose between a prisoner's life in a world where his curse makes him a star and a life of freedom that he knows can only end one way - a silver bullet through the heart. A desperate man's struggle with despair and hope is just another show in the ...
