Black & Orange

Crossroad Press & Bad Moon Books

Black & Orange

By Benjamin Kane Etheridge

Forget everything you know about Halloween. The stories are distortions. They were created to keep the Church of Midnight hidden from the world. Every October 31st a gateway opens to a hostile land of sacrificial magic and chaos. Since the beginning of civilization the Church of Midnight has attempted to open the gateway and unite with its other half, the Church of Morning. Each year they’ve come closer, waiting for the ideal sacrifice to open the gateway permanently.

This year that sacrifice has come. And only two can protect it. Martin and Teresa are the nomads, battle-hardened people who lack identity and are forever road-bound on an endless mission to guard the sacrifice. Their only direction is from notes left from a mysterious person called the Messenger. Endowed with a strange telekinetic power, the nomads will use everything at their disposal to make it through the night alive. But matters have become even more complicated this year. Teresa has quickly lost ground battling cancer, while Martin has spiraled into a panic over being left alone. His mind may no longer be on the fight when it matters most... because ever on their heels is the insidious physical representation of a united church: Chaplain Cloth.

Bang Bang

Bedlam Press

(an imprint of Necro Publications)

Bang Bang

By Patrick Malloy

Youthimax is a cure-all miracle drug from Johnson and Johnson which has all but eliminated death in modern society. Which is great news. Unless you work at a funeral home.

The O’Rourke Funeral Home in West Philadelphia has fallen into obscurity, along with it’s two sole employees. Max and Bligh waste the days away sleeping in coffins and counting shovels until that fateful day that they decide to become serial killers. The drunken Bligh finds serendipitous instructions in the Beatles tune “Maxwell’s Silver Hammer” and convinces his partner that it’s only right that Maxwell kill with a silver hammer. With little business and less regret, Maxwell and his alcoholic train wreck of a partner become the most infamous serial killers in Philadelphia history.

Business is booming in both the funeral home and the serial killing industries as the world searches for these Beatles killers.

In a perfect world, serial killers could do their jobs unencumbered. But the world isn’t perfect, and the duo are soon weighed down with a nosey Mafioso, an uncontrollable teen daughter, the funeral home’s bitter elderly owner, and the F.B.I. Obviously, comedy abounds.

Bang Bang has everything a dark comedy should have including, but not limited to: murder, love, murder, alcohol, murder, stereotyping, murder, Beatles music, murder, family, murder, public transportation, and even murder. In case you haven’t figured it out, there’s a whole lotta murder in this book.

Will the F.B.I. catch the killers?
Will the mafia get to the murderers first?
Will Paul McCartney sue this writer?

Find out in Bang Bang, the hilariously untrue story of funeral home serial killers and hammer hijinks. And Vaseline! All of your non-Paul-McCartney-lawsuit questions are answered in this brilliant debut novel, written in the style of a poorly educated Mark Twain!

Host of the Armageddon

Host of the Armageddon (The Horsemen Chronicles Book 1)

By Ken Scott Smith

"All folklore is based on some remnants of truth, the Bible is no exception… The Horsemen are very real, they are immortal, and their only goal is to feed on mankind's suffering and enslave humanity."

An elementary school full of kids destroyed by a tornado… A soldier makes it home from the Middle East only to be killed for his wallet...A mother of three diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer...Random events? NO

Photojournalist Faye Monroe discovers that the ugliness and cruelty afflicting the world does not arise of its own actions: the countless wars, the outbreaks of disease and natural disasters, even the murder of her friends and family—the work of malevolent architects.

THEY ARE UNLEASHED! War, Death, Disease and Famine...The Four Horsemen have fed the world endless despair for millennia. But one of them has been destroyed and its spirit seeks a new host.

Faye, together with a Mossad agent and a rebel assassin, quickly plunge into danger, intrigue and supernatural adventure as the trio search for the key to save Faye's soul…and hopefully prevent Armageddon. A break neck supernatural thriller.

Working Stiffs

By Lucy Leitner

Working Stiffs is a hilarious, action-packed tale of survival in the fast-paced world of pharmaceuticals.

Something has gone horribly wrong in the Pro-Well Pharmaceuticals factory and ex-meth dealer Marshall Owens, the company’s owner and drug genius, must keep the surrounding Pittsburgh area from finding out. Unfortunately, the undead assembly line workers have other plans.

Will the employees make it?

How many office workers can one man take down with the blade of a paper cutter and some staplers?
Will Marshall Owens go back to selling meth?
And most important of all, will Pro-Well’s stock value plummet?

Find out all the answers in this brilliant new horror/comedy novel reminiscent of style of Christopher Moore.

Last Stand on Zombie Island

By Christopher L. Eger


Disease-K has decimated the world leaving its victims shambling homicidal maniacs. And nestled along the warm Gulf waters sits Gulf Shores…the last outpost of civilization.

There, in the sands and marshes of the Gulf of Mexico, the citizens of Gulf Shores along with scattered military units, a downed Air Force pilot, and a lone Coast Guard cutter form the last line of defense against the amassing horde of the infected marching its way toward the sea destroying what is left of humanity along the way.

As summer gives way to the fall and the cold winds blow off the sea, Gulf Shores draws the line and prepares to make the THE LAST STAND ON ZOMBIE ISLAND!
