OUR CATALOG OF BOOKS
BLEEDING EDGE is just getting started. Our current catalog has only two books but we are looking forward to a more ambitious release schedule in 2022.
The Bad Book
Edited by John F.D. Taff
The Good Book.
You might have clutched it in your church pew on Sunday mornings. You know the one? With the pebbled black soft cover, the words HOLY BIBLE stamped in gold ink. Perhaps it strengthened your faith, comforted you in dark times.
Multiple Bram Stoker Award-nominated John F.D. Taff has assembled a Last Supper of Dark Apostles to turn some of those "good book" parables on their heads—twisting Bible stories into sinister horror tales.
Blasphemous? Heretical? We sincerely hope so.
As you read on, remember one thing, though. There’s no comfort to be found in The Bad Book.
No comfort at all.
The Call of the Void
by Michael Bailey & Erinn L. Kemper
They died heart to heart, chest to chest.
Detective Kovelant, haunted by the fiery death of two women, investigates why Chloe Bisset, mother and wife, swerved last-second into oncoming traffic. What drove her to this impulse?
L’appel du vide, he soon discovers, is both an explanation and a non-explanation. The phrase translates to “the call of the void,” which doesn’t surprise him. The French often have ways of expressing the unexplainable. Most never answer the call, but only briefly contemplate what could happen.
Kovelant tracks Chloe’s acts through her final days—a series of experiments in spontaneity that end with her crossing one final line on the asphalt to end two lives. Clues scribed with fridge magnets, etched into silver rings, scribbled on sticky notes, and painted on the smoke-stained walls of a derelict building, reveal a woman tormented by a growing need. Each revelation drives him closer to the grief that pins him to his own dark truth.
Parents should never outlive their children.
Beneath Ash & Bone
by D. Alexander Ward
Selburn, Virginia: A quiet backwater town nestled among the Blue Ridge Mountains. In the days before the Civil War, Sam Lock keeps the peace as the town sheriff, like his father before him.
That peace is shattered during a raging winter storm when a boy goes missing at Evermore, the sprawling estate of the Crownhill family. Racing against time and the elements, Sam must mount a desperate search for the child—but what he finds in the snow, and the dark halls of Evermore, are madness...and murder.
As Sam searches for truth in a house poisoned by mysteries and haunted by ghosts, he hopes to weather the storm, but the harrowing secrets he uncovers may prove too terrible to bear. Will he escape with his sanity intact or will the dark presence rumored to hold sway over Evermore claim him as another sacrifice?
Shadows Over Main Street, Vol. 3
Edited by Doug Murano & D. Alexander Ward
This is the end…
…but it’s also just another Friday night in small-town America.
High school football teams vie for glory atop green fields while eldritch rot burbles underneath. Mom-and-pop shops shutter their storefronts while moms and dads lock their front doors…unaware that the real threats aren’t of this Earth and already surround them, waiting until the stars are right.
The sun is about to set on Main Street once and for all.
In Shadows Over Main Street Volume 3, Doug Murano and D. Alexander Ward bring you the final, apocalyptic word in their groundbreaking series of small-town Lovecraftian terror. This is how it ends—not with a whimper, but a rising chorus in worship of the unthinkable along the back roads of America.
We knew you’d come back. You’re home.
