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 Complete Short Fiction of Charles L. Grant Volume 1: Nightmare Seasons
By
Price: $4.99 USD. Words: 67,680. 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.
The Complete Short Fiction of Charles L. Grant Volume 2: The Orchard
By
Price: $4.99 USD. Words: 59,040. Language: English. Published: September 19, 2012 by Bob Booth. Category: Fiction » Horror » General
"Of everything Charlie wrote, my favorite books of his are those that combine quartets of stories linked by a central motif like this one. It has long been argued that, for horror writers particularly, the novella is the ideal length for a story. It allows character development and plenty of darkness, while negating the need for rambling or filler.
The Complete Universe of Horror Trilogy
By
Price: $9.99 USD. Words: 117,130. Language: English. Published: November 19, 2014 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. Purchase the complete series (all three novels) at a discounted price here!

The Complete Short Fiction of Charles L. Grant, Volume IV: The Black Carousel
By
Price: $4.99 USD. Words: 57,330. 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 Universe of Horror Volume 2: The Dark Cry of the Moon

The Hour of the Oxrun Dead
By
Price: $4.99 USD. Words: 63,820. 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.
When Dark Descends
By
Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 13,610. Language: English. Published: November 19, 2014 by Bob Booth. Category: Fiction » Horror » General
You’ll never find two more influential names in horror than Charles L. Grant and Thomas F. Monteleone. So needless to say, when they collaborated on a religious thriller novella together, the results were stunning. Originally published by Borderlands Press, we’re thrilled to bring WHEN DARK DESCENDS to the digital age … or, perhaps to put it more fittingly, bringing it to THE LIGHT.
The Complete Short Fiction of Charles L. Grant Volume 3: Dialing the Wind
By
Price: $4.99 USD. Words: 55,290. Language: English. Published: September 19, 2012 by Bob Booth. Category: Fiction » Horror » General
"It’s said that backward masking on albums can subconsciously affect the listener ... what Charlie Grant does with his writing is similar ... he gets inside you, often without you realising. He’ll tell you a tale in his poetic, beautifully descriptive language, and the tale will end, and slowly over the next few days you’ll find yourself thinking about it more and more until... bam!

Buddha Hill
By
Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 28,260. 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."
