The Fountaindale Public Library District has recently added some great books to our collection that are a must for horror fans. Here are a few that are worth checking out!
Last of the Albatwitches by Brian Keene
The first story is The Witching Tree…In the woods of Pennsylvania there is a clearing with only one lone tree in the center. And from that tree, there comes only death. The second story is The Last of the Albatwitches…There’s an old legend about the forest surrounding Chickies Rock – how it’s the home to a reclusive race of Sasquatch-like creatures known as the Albatwitches. But after a recent murder, ex-Amish occult detective Levi Stoltzfus suspects there might be some truth to the stories. Brian Keene does it again!
The Rising: Selected Scenes from the End of the World by Brian Keene
Those familiar with Mr. Keene’s two zombie books, The Rising and City of the Dead should not miss this. This is a collection of short stories set in the world of The Rising, examining the arrival of the first zombie, the fall of mankind, and the terrifying events that occur after City of the Dead’s conclusion. This book is horror at its best, brutal and visceral. If you are a fan of Keene’s zombie mythos, you cannot miss this book!
Flu by Wayne Simmons
A deadly strain of flu mutates, causing the deaths of millions throughout Ireland and the world. But the infected don’t stay dead for long, rising up to become flesh-eating monsters. And the virus is airborne. Anyone can become infected. Irish born author Wayne Simmons writes a riveting tale of zombies, the military and the people struggling to stay alive. Read it with the lights on…… seriously…..
The Infection by Craig DiLouie
A mysterious virus suddenly strikes down millions. Three days later, its victims awake with a single purpose: spread the Infection. As the world lurches toward the apocalypse, some of the Infected continue to change, transforming into horrific monsters. Craig DiLouie recently wrote the fantastic Suffer the Children. This is one of his earlier works which is followed by the sequel, The Killing Floor, which we own as well.
These authors are not as well-known as a Stephen King or a Dean Koontz, but once you read these you will want to read more by them. I have read these books and I can attest they are horror at its best.
