Feature: American Nightmare from Kraken Press - Giveaway

American Nightmare
George Cotronis, Editor
Kraken Press, March 2014
Trade Paperback and eBook, 240 pages

It's the 1950s. There's always something good on the radio, cherry red Cadillacs cruise the streets and everything is always perfect. Marilyn is still alive and the War is over. America goes to bed, nuclear annihilation postponed another day.

Welcome to the American Nightmare.

Nuclear families dabbling in the occult. Little League games in the summer, old blood spilled in the dust. Unspeakable things hiss and crawl, unseen along the 38th parallel, camouflaged under muzzle flashes. This is what happens behind the white picket fences and waving flags.

  1. Interesting concept to be playing around with. I'm normally not much for horror, but I definitely need to branch out in my reading material, and more horror is a good first step, I think. (In theory, anyway. :p)

  2. This look great, and I can't wait to read it!

  3. Looks amazing can't wait to check this out.

  4. .....nice, horror short story collections are always nice in my book.....
