Scavenger Hunt

 

“I already know all your names.

As for me… you can call me Mr. Do-Good.”

 

Five strangers have woken up in a white room. A room with no doors, no windows.

 

A room with no hope.

 

“5 stars!” Sci-Fi & Scary

Because these strangers have been kidnapped, drugged… and brought here as the newest contestants in the world’s most high-stakes scavenger hunt.

 

A GREAT story that kept me guessing until the end… it will not be a story that you will want to put down!” – The Genre Minx

 

Run by a madman named Mr. Do-Good, the game offers only two options: win or die.

 

“Unputdownable!” – Fundinmental book reviews

 

All they have to do to survive is…

 

complete every task…
on time…
and not break any of Do-Good’s rules.

 

“An entertaining, action-packed read.” – Morbidly Beautiful Reviews

 

Playing the game will bring the players to their breaking point and beyond. But play they will, because Do-Good has plans for these strangers, and their only chance to live through the night is to discover what’s really behind his Scavenger Hunt.

“If you want excitement, don’t miss this one.” – Monster Librarian

Darkling Smiles

A “chilling collection of eight tales… as scary as they are satisfying…” (Publisher’s Weekly)

 

A family that wins tablet computers at a deal to good to be believed…

A man who is sent across the universe, only to discover the most dangerous world in existence…

A hitman who realizes that his greatest contract is going to be himself…

A man whose child has been targeted by a cult, and must decide what he is willing to do to save those he loves…

Michaelbrent Collings brings you eight tales of people whose lives — and sometimes deaths — have fallen into decay.

Tales of the ordinary and the extraordinary, the outrageous and the banal. Tales of lives bright, lives dim.

Stories of a universe fallen, where every happiness has its opposite, and every smile will be inevitably darkled

Terminal

Michaelbrent Collings brings you one of the “Best Reads of 2019” (Horror After Dark); a “Top 10 Read of 2019” (Sci-fi & Scary)…

 ***

All passengers, please prepare for departure…

An employee, a cop, and six passengers; a prisoner, a stowaway, and a madman.

These are the people waiting at the Lawton bus terminal.

 Mostly late-night travelers who want nothing more than to get to their destinations, and employees who want nothing more than to get through the graveyard shift.

But when a strange, otherworldly fog rolls in, the night changes to nightmare. Because something hides in the fog. Something powerful. Something strange. Something… inhuman.

Soon, those in the terminal have been cut off from the rest of the world. No phones, no computers. Just ten strangers in the terminal… and The Other.

The Other is the force in the mist. The Other is the thing that has captured them. And The Other wants to play a game.

The rules are simple:

  1. The people in the terminal must choose a single person from among them. That person will live. The rest will die.
  2. Anyone who attempts to leave the terminal before the final vote will die.
  3. The final vote… must be unanimous. 

A nightmare. And getting worse, because the best way to make a vote unanimous… is to kill the other voters. 

Welcome to the Terminal.

The Sword Chronicles: Child of Ash

The Sword Chronicles: Child of Ash

The Sword Chronicles: Child of Ash

THE STUNNING CONCLUSION TO THE SWORD CHRONICLES TRILOGY!

Her friends are gone. Ansborn is dying. And there is only one place Sword can go: to the Gods.

Planning to destroy those responsible for the deaths of her friends and the destruction of Ansborn, Sword will descend into a world unlike any she has ever known. Aided by the two most dangerous enemies she has ever faced, she will climb below the clouds that have hidden Ansborn from the world for a thousand years. And she will kill anyone and anything she finds.

But Sword does not know the truth: that Ansborn is a construct of a great nation that passed away a thousand years before she was born. That the world she knew is a vast experiment; a second chance for a lost race.

Sword is about to face the greatest enemy she has yet encountered. An enemy that has lived for countless generations. An enemy that has destroyed all who dared challenge it. An enemy that Sword must defeat; for she is the last hope of Ansborn, and of every living person.

She is Sword, and only she . . . can save the world.

The Darklights by Michaelbrent Collings

From #1 bestselling horror novelist

and multiple Bram Stoker Award finalist MICHAELBRENT COLLINGS

comes a trip into the farthest reaches of fear…

 

***

I am a FixIt.

 

When the Company has a problem – a factory gone under, books that need auditing, or a rebellious planet to be destroyed – I’m there, and I take care of it. I’m the most successful FixIt in Company history, and I have NEVER failed to punch a ticket.

 

TF-653 is different. The staff and crew of a terraforming installation on a planet so strange it cannot be described have disappeared. It’s my job to go there, to find the problem, and to stop it. Or kill it.

 

But some things can’t be killed. Because some things are already dead.

 

And some things… are even worse. Because some things can only be seen in THE DARKLIGHTS.

The Longest Con

The Longest Con

My name is Michaelbrent Collings. This is my story.

 

 

Larry Correia. Kevin J. Anderson. D.J. Butler. Orson Scott Card. Mercedes Yardley.

 

Would you like to know – I mean, REALLY know – what they’re doing when they go to those fancy comic-cons? Because it ain’t just writing.

 

See, every year, thousands of people attend comic-cons dressed as monsters.
Of course, you probably already knew that.

 

But did you ALSO know that…

 

every year, thousands of MONSTERS attend comic-cons dressed as PEOPLE.

 

Sure. Nothing could POSSIBLY go wrong there.

 

Luckily, the con organizers have placed Wardens throughout the conventions. These undercover supernatural troubleshooters are tasked with stopping mayhem before it starts . . . or solving the murders after they happen.

 

I’M MICHAELBRENT COLLINGS: author of this book, and one of the Wardens. My job is to go to the cons, where I sell books, make fans, and kill the occasional monster.

 

It’s not just me, either. Those authors I told you about, and even more . . . you’d never guess what many of your favorite authors are REALLY up to at the conventions.

 

Luckily, though, you don’t have to guess.

 

JUST READ THIS BOOK.

 

And get ready to have . . . your . . . mind . . . BLOWN.*
