More info
From the national bestselling author of Alice comes a post-apocalyptic take on the perennial classic Little Red Riding Hood...about a woman who isn't as defenceless as she seems.

It's not safe for anyone alone in the woods. There are predators that come out at night: critters and coyotes, snakes and wolves. But the woman in the red jacket has no choice. Not since the Crisis came, decimated the population, and sent those who survived fleeing into quarantine camps that serve as breeding grounds for death, destruction, and disease. She is just a woman trying not to get killed in a world that doesn't look anything like the one she grew up in, the one that was perfectly sane and normal and boring until three months ago.

There are worse threats in the woods than the things that stalk their prey at night. Sometimes, there are men. Men with dark desires, weak wills, and evil intents. Men in uniform with classified information, deadly secrets, and unforgiving orders. And sometimes, just sometimes, there's something worse than all of the horrible people and vicious beasts combined.

Red doesn't like to think of herself as a killer, but she isn't about to let herself get eaten up just because she is a woman alone in the woods...

'As always with Henry's work I was completely drawn in, I read this action packed story in one sitting and highly recommend it to any fans of horror, SFF or retellings.' - An Average Life Review 'Another great offering from Christina Henry that takes a fairytale we are all familiar with and twists it into something even more awesome. Henry never shies away from the gory details and darker themes such as mental health and racism.' - The Paperback Piano Review 'If you like your twisted, apocalyptic, survival novels served up with a side of sass and excitement then look no further than The Girl in Red.' - Bookshelf Butterfly Review 'If you want a fairy-tale retelling with a strong female lead that takes no prisoners in an apocalyptic world then look no further than Christina Henry's The Girl in Red.' - Books Love Readers Review 'I did not expect this to blow me away quite this much...

I knew I loved Red on page 10 and it only gets better from there. 5*s' - Books and Lemon Squash Review

Growing Things and Other Stories

Growing Things and Other Stories

Paul Tremblay

$18.99
A chilling collection of psychological suspense and literary horror from the multiple award-winning author of the national bestseller The Cabin at the End of the World and A Head Full of Ghosts.

From global catastrophe to the demons inside our heads, Tremblay illuminates our primal fears and darkest dreams in startlingly original fiction that leaves us unmoored. As he lowers the sky and yanks the ground from beneath our feet, we are compelled to contemplate the darkness inside our own hearts and minds.

In 'The Teacher,' a Bram Stoker Award nominee for best short story, a student is forced to watch a disturbing video that will haunt and torment her and her classmates' lives.

Joining this haunting work are stories linked to Tremblay's previous novels. The tour de force metafictional novella 'Notes from the Dog Walkers' deconstructs horror and publishing, possibly bringing in a character from A Head Full of Ghosts, all while serving as a prequel to Disappearance at Devil's Rock. 'The Thirteenth Temple' follows another character from A Head Full of Ghosts - Merry, who has published a tell-all memoir written years after the events of the novel.

The Forgotten Girl

The Forgotten Girl

Rio Youers

$18.99
Harvey Anderson is a twenty-six-year-old street performer from New Jersey. He enjoys his peaceful life, but everything is turned upside down when he is abducted and beaten by a group of nondescript thugs. Working for a sinister man known as the spider, these goons have spent nine years searching for Harvey's girlfriend, Sally Starling. Now they think they know where she lives. And who she loves. There's only one problem: Sally is gone and Harvey has no memory of her. Which makes no sense to him, until the spider explains that Sally has the unique ability to selectively erase a person's memories. An ability she has used to delete herself from Harvey's mind. But emotion runs deeper than memory, and Harvey realises that he still feels something for Sally. And so - with the spider threatening - he goes looking for a girl he loves but can't remember...and encounters a danger that reaches beyond anything he could ever imagine. Political corruption and manipulation. A serial killer's dark secrets. An appetite for absolute, terrible power...for Harvey Anderson, finding the forgotten girl comes at quite a cost.
