The Eldritch Chills Bundle – Curated by Kevin J. Anderson

Are you a reader who enjoys stories that make your skin crawl? When a bump in the night is more likely to be another book falling off the shelf?

I’ve curated a crypt full of creepy books about elder gods, ghosts, slimy monsters, ominous entities, and the brave souls who fight them—fourteen books in all in the Eldritch Chills StoryBundle. Even Cthulhu would be proud!

Let’s start out with some classics, The Cthulhu Stories of Robert E. Howard—the creator of Conan also wrote in H.P. Lovecraft’s grand creation, and these are his stories, collected in one volume. You’ll also love the anthology The Gods of Lovecraft, edited by Aaron J. French, for more about those awful beings from beyond time and space. Cults of Death and Madness by John Haas is a frightening Victorian adventure of ancient idols, blood-sacrifice cults, and Elder Gods, while The Burning Time by JG Faherty is a more modern take on Cthulhu-inspired monsters in the town of Hastings Mills.

Another classic: British author Lafcadio Hearn introduced the Western world to Japanese ghost stories and different culture full of terrors; Kwaidan contains the best of these ghost stories. For a more modern twist, Jeffrey J. Mariotte’s The Slab takes us into the minds of a group of men who hunt women for sport out in the California desert…until they encounter an abandoned slab, and an ancient evil.

Steven-Elliot Altman’s Zen in the Art of Vampire Slaying offers a different perspective on saving us from the monsters in the shadows. And if you prefer ghosts to vampires, The Ghost of Mackey House by R.A. Johnson features a haunted bed and breakfast, a disappearing owner, and a mystery that goes back decades.

Who needs a haunted house, when you can have a haunted skyscraper? Find out in It Waits on the Top Floor by Ben Farthing. Cracked Altar by David Viergutz features a man under investigation for a crime he didn’t commit, watching his life fall into ruins—but it gets far worse when a lurking presence also begins to stalk him. Bonnie Elizabeth’s Shadows of Solstice offers a different kind of hero, young Mina Andresen, who must fight monsters in her own small town, as soon as she can believe in herself. For more small town horrors, Nigh by Marie Bilodeau takes place in another not-very-Mayberry RFD place: a disappearing witch, a thief in the night, spectral whispers, and a fog that won’t dissipate…

But there’s no need to be afraid—not when we have Joe Ledger and his team from the Department of Military Sciences to protect us. For this bundle, we have BOTH volumes of bestseller Jonathan Maberry’s Joe Ledger: Secret Missions, tense battles against the supernatural, from the Antarctic to the harshest deserts, to your own back yard.

That should be enough to make your skin crawl for a long time. Kevin J. Anderson
