NIGHTLIFEBy Brian HodgeThis book is available in the following formats.  Please choose your preference from the menu below before proceeding to checkout. Mobi (Kindle)ePub (Sony / Nook / iPad / Kobo)PDF (Adobe) PRC (Mobipocket) From the primeval rain forest comes an uncontrolled substance never intended for  consumption by the civilized mind… To the warrior-shamans of the Venezuelan forest people, the drug is a sacred substance: part pain, part pleasure, all power. Skullflush is pure psychic whiplash … an exhilarating gateway to an advanced consciousness beyond time and species. Deep in the Amazon, the primitive tribe has kept its secret safe from civilization. Until a rising drug lord ends up with a stolen six-kilo stash, and begins to peddle his prize in the nightclubs of Florida. Tampa’s thrill-seekers are eager to sample the pale green powder. But generations of urbanized decadence have left them jaded, shallow, and weak … too weak to handle the drug’s mystic high. The ancient rain forest chemistry warps bone, muscle, and sinew in their city-soft bodies, setting free the ferocious power of man’s basic nature. On the rebound from a life in ruins, Justin Gray is the sole witness who can connect the fearsome power of skullflush with the carnage left in its wake. A marked man, with a new love and an unlikely ally from the heart of the rain forest, he's forced to learn the ways of the urban jungle, where everyone is both hunter and hunted. PRAISE FOR NIGHTLIFE "Hodge has come up with a scary winner. Unlike many of today's horror genre, Nightlife is believable … keeps you moving in a straightforward line until you get to the catastrophic end." — The Santa Cruz Sentinel "Color, sprawl, melodramatic action, and a feel not altogether unlike the prime of Miami Vice … it's right in there like a Charles Willeford portrait of South Florida at its grotesque best. Lots of heat." — Ed Bryant, in Locus "Switching back and forth between the mundane, the...

Oasis

Oasis

OasisBy Brian HodgeThis book is available in the following formats.  Please choose your preference from the menu below before proceeding to checkout. Mobi (Kindle)ePub (Sony / Nook / iPad / Kobo)PDF (Adobe) PRC (Mobipocket) A golden time — that's what Chris Anderson, his brother Aaron, and their friends expected of that final summer. Freedom, and lazy, pleasure-filled days before the responsibilities of college and career. An idyll in the seclusion of their newfound hideaway on the shores of three small lakes. But Tri-Lakes is no oasis. A millennium ago it became the focal point of a powerfully malevolent force, and the remnants of an ancient bloodfeud. Hatred is its source. Blood gives it power. Only sacrifice can banish it. PRAISE FOR OASIS: "Hodge once again plays by the rules, but with a frightening catch … His characters breathe, and his prose is chilling and crisp." — West Coast Review Of Books "Hodge writes well, he is adept at both atmosphere and action, and his sense of story is good. Like [Stephen] King, whom Oasis continually echoes (but doesn't copy), he keeps the reader's interest — a major task for many horror writers today … He's made the jump from the small presses to the mainstream in a short time. Oasis is one reason why." — Fangoria "Fine degrees of nuance and shading … Hodge's knack is in invoking sympathy for his characters. He draws on a talented mix of humor and suspense to entertain. It makes for compelling style." — Deathrealm ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Brian Hodge is the award-winning author of ten novels of horror and crime/noir, over 100 short stories, novelettes, and novellas, and four full-length collections. His most recent collection, Picking The Bones, from 2011, became the first of his books to be honored with a Publishers Weekly starred review. His first collection, The Convulsion Factory, was listed by critic Stanley Wiater as one of the 113 best books of modern horror. Upcoming works include a collection...

Prototype

PrototypeBy Brian HodgeThis book is available in the following formats.  Please choose your preference from the drop-down menu below before proceeding to checkout. Mobi (Kindle)ePub (Sony / Nook / iPad / Kobo)PDF (Adobe) PRC (Mobipocket) He's Code Blue when brought into the ER: a young drifter who wandered in from the desert, who was attacked for mundane reasons, and who broke his own hands on his attackers' faces and lacerated them with the jagged bones. His name is Clay Palmer, and he's one of the rarest people on earth … the carrier of a genetic mutation with frightening implications for humanity. With the time ticking on his self-control, Clay wages a desperate struggle to understand what has gone so wrong, with the help of psychologist Adrienne Rand and her anthropologist lover, Sarah. It's a struggle that takes them from the desert to the mountains, into the tribal subculture of Clay's friends, and on a cross-country odyssey through a frozen landscape corroded with industrial blight, toward the other claimant for Clay's soul: a man who has spent a lifetime spreading chaos and destruction in the world. A man who is more like him than not. A man who wants sons and daughters… Even if he has to breed them himself.

The Darker Saints

The Darker Saints

The Darker SaintsBy Brian HodgeThis book is available in the following formats.  Please choose your preference from the menu below before proceeding to checkout. Mobi (Kindle)ePub (Sony / Nook / iPad / Kobo)PDF (Adobe) PRC (Mobipocket) Behind the walls of respectability is a world exploding with crime, sin, and the darkest magic of all… The rain beats down on the hot New Orleans streets. A derelict staggers, no longer a man, but a zombi, a vessel emptied by voodoo sorcery and poured full of another’s will. This is the land of lace curtains and Mardi Gras. This is the world of the bayou and sizzling crawfish and a man in white who can kill at any distance. A storm of corporate greed and cruel vengeance is sweeping through New Orleans, descending on a young advertising executive (Nightlife‘s Justin Gray) who fears he may be selling his soul along with brand names, on a weary ex-CIA agent, and on a Caribbean chauffeur on the run from enemies he can’t understand. Two powerful businessmen, one legitimate, the other a criminal, have built a common empire. Now it is coming apart in a tidal wave of bloodshed and shattered lives, flooding the Delta with voodoo — the dark magic of darker saints. PRAISE FOR THE DARKER SAINTS: “Southern Louisiana is always a terrifically atmospheric setting for hot, humid, moldering, multicultural horror. Hodge uses his setting well … moves along with the speed of an airboat skimming a steaming bayou. The action’s hot, the magic is dark, and you start getting a little sorry for Justin, considering all the shit he gets into in the space of just two novels … This is a quite literate Edge of Night in which the morning apparently never comes.” — Ed Bryant, in Locus “You’ve got the spicy ingredients for a dish so intense and uncompromising, it’ll leave your eyes stinging … If you’re tired of predictable horror yarns, then step into Hodge’s dark and obsessive world, where lovers circle each other like enemies, brothers see murder as a tool of...
