The Complete Short Fiction of Charles L. Grant Volume 1: Nightmare Seasons
By
Price: $4.99 USD. Words: 68,150. Language: English. Published: September 19, 2012 by Bob Booth. Category: Fiction » Horror » General
The first book in our Complete Short Fiction of Charles L. Grant, originally published in 1982, is truly "historic," as it was the first time Grant published four novellas with linking material around a common theme. It is, in effect, a tone poem — almost a symphony. It was so successful that he repeated the format three times.

Roadkill. We've all seen it, drove past it, even probably been responsible for it. But from the pen of the legendary Charles L. Grant, that blood splattered across the asphalt isn't animal ... it's human. After all, "roadkill" takes on a whole new meaning when the dominant species isn't behind the wheel, but rather hunting the back roads and breakdown lanes for vulnerable, easy prey ...

The Face That Must Die is arguably the most disturbing book in the long, storied career of Ramsey Campbell. He had seen the face of the killer and it haunted him. He reported it to the police, and told others about it. They ignored him. He followed him, he watched him, and finally, he decided to kill him. The killer’s face was the Face That Must Die.
The Universe of Horror Volume 1: The Soft Whisper of the Dead
By
Price: $4.99 USD. Words: 40,710. Language: English. Published: September 19, 2012 by Bob Booth. Category: Fiction » Horror » General
Charles L. Grant's town of Oxrun Station became real to horror fans (much like Lovecraft's Arkham and King's Castle Rock). While most of Grant’s stories were contemporary, he did write a trilogy of “historical” novels placed in an earlier Oxrun.
The Complete Short Fiction of Charles L. Grant, Volume IV: The Black Carousel

Price: $4.99 USD. Words: 57,360. Language: English. Published: August 7, 2013 by Bob Booth. Category: Fiction » Horror » General
"The Oxrun books represent a grand, wildly successful experiment in horror, as Charlie effectively explored dread and disquiet in many forms ... read and reread this excellent example of Charlie’s craft as a way of “holding on” to him, and all the good things he represented. If enough of us do that, the strange but moving music he created will never fade away." —Hank Wagner (from the Introduction)
The Hour of the Oxrun Dead
By
Price: $4.99 USD. Words: 63,890. Language: English. Published: August 2, 2011 by Bob Booth. Category: Fiction » Horror » General
The Hour of the Oxrun Dead was a breakthrough for Charles Grant. It was the first novel dealing with Oxrun Station, an invented, cursed locale that is unsurpassed in the minds of horror fans. Appearing in 1977, it helped usher in the golden age of horror fiction. Character-driven and emotionally wrenching it stands in sharp contrast to the "gore galore" style that dominates the genre today.
The School That Screamed

Price: $4.99 USD. Words: 69,350. Language: English. Published: March 25, 2013 by Bob Booth. Category: Fiction » Horror » General
From the Author's Note — "As a fan of exploitation cinema, I loved films centered within a private school and the bad girls who lived in these institutions ... beautiful bad girls who smoked and slept around who had to use every ounce of cunning they possessed to survive whatever lurked in the hallways. Often, they didn’t survive. THE SCHOOL THAT SCREAMED is my homage to these movies."
The Kill
By
Price: $4.99 USD. Words: 83,370. Language: English. Published: September 23, 2010 by Bob Booth. Category: Fiction » Horror » General
Alan Peter Ryan's novel, published in 1982, is the story of a young couple who flee the city to rural Deacons Kill in the Catskills. Their home becomes the target of an invisible evil that lives in the nearby wood. They join with their neighbors to confront the monster. A fine example by a World Fantasy Award-winning author of a theme explored extensively by Golden Age (70s & 80s) horror writers.

Buddha Hill
By
Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 28,250. Language: English. Published: August 25, 2013. Category: Fiction » Horror » General
From Weston Oche's introduction — "There’s a secret formula to writing supernatural fiction and Booth knows it — place believable characters in believable situations and have supernatural events occur. Not everyone knows this. Not everyone can do it. In this work Booth does it perfectly. Enjoy Buddha Hill. It’s a rare treasure from a rare man."
