A New Life by Paul Lubaczewski
Down on his luck in Philadelphia, Austin found himself homeless and out of options, but a chance encounter with two men, named Nicky and Zion, will change his life forever. Unfortunately for Austin, it doesn't take him long to learn that getting everything you want can be Hell. Things get bloody awful in the follow up to Paul Lubaczewski's critically acclaimed I NEVER EAT...CHEESESTEAK. Achieving a balance of literary fiction and pure horror, A NEW LIFE is smart and brutal with an emotional gravity. Lubaczewski gives us a psychological deep dive into the desperation of life on the jagged edges of society.
Thirsty and Miserable; A Critical Analysis of the Music of Black Flag by Tim Murr
Horror author and journalist Tim Murr fell in love with Black Flag's music in high school and continues to find inspiration in their music today. THIRSTY AND MISERABLE; A CRITICAL ANALYSIS OF THE MUSIC OF BLACK FLAG reviews the band's entire discography from Nervous Breakdown to What The..? with some side roads into demos, art, and concert videos in between. THIRSTY AND MISERABLE is equal parts critique and love letter to a band that was a trailblazer in hardcore punk-that opened up the out of the way places across America for other bands to follow and defined and then redefined what hardcore was and what it could be.
The Gray Man by Tim Murr
What do you do when your family becomes your prison? Tim Murr, the author of Neon Sabbath, Motel on Fire, and City Long Suffering, takes you to a small town in East Tennessee, where a young family move into a home where a predatory spirit lies in wait with generations of tragic secrets pulsating just under the surface. THE GRAY MAN is Murr's most personal work to date and also his most horrifying.
Motel on Fire by Tim Murr
Body horror, possession, the supernatural, the paranormal, weird, creature-feature, revenge...Every story a journey, some physical, some mental.
Motel On Fire is a travelogue of terror-zig zagging across America from the creator of the horror culture blog Stranger With Friction.
In his latest collection of short stories, Tim Murr brings back the feeling of raiding your local video store’s horror section. Capturing the fantastical, the sleaze, and the gore, while raising his middle finger to the very notion of “elevated horror,” but still delivering a highly literate, fast paced read.
