By Jonathan Maberry, Rachael Lavin & Lucas Mangum
JournalStone’s DoubleDown collection continues with Number VIII in the series of flip books.

Dark of Night (Jonathan Maberry & Rachael Lavin): The dead rose. We fell. The survivors are trapped in a world of monsters who prey on the helpless. Some of them are zombies…but they are not the only predators who feed on pain and suffering. DARK OF NIGHT is a story of worlds in collision. Three heroes who have survived the apocalypse are in a deadly race to save a busload of children from ravenous zombies and ruthless human scavengers.

Flesh and Fire (Lucas Mangum): In the midst of a midlife crisis, Todd is haunted by Chloe, the lover who died not long after their relationship ended. When Chloe escapes Hell in search of the peaceful rest that has eluded her, a demon named Samael is on her trail and she needs Todd’s help. While on the run Todd and Chloe face demons real and personal, soul-threatening danger, and their long-buried feelings for each other.

By Mark Dunn

John Barron never felt at home in his own skin. Constantly moving from place to place, from job to job, he can never escape the nagging feeling that someone, or something, is coming for him, and that this predatory evil threatens all he holds most dear…

Rose is a creature of the night, a brutal killer with no conscience who is propelled only by the need to survive. But now, suddenly, she sees in her dreams the face of a child, her baby, and her life is thrown into a chaos she never saw coming.

What links these two damaged souls, and what will happen when their paths merge? The Last Night, the second novel from Mark P. Dunn, is a twisting ride through the darkest fears and brightest hopes of the human heart.


We’re looking for digital film reviewers, indie game reviewers, book reviewers, and interviewers. No experience necessary, so if you’d like to take a stab at any or all of the above, drop Editor-in-Chief of the JournalStone Network, Stuart Conover, a line!
