American Nightmare, edited by George Cotronis

American Nightmare is the first short story anthology from Kraken Press, featuring ten excellent pieces of horror fiction by exceptionally talented writers who explore the hellish underbelly of a 50’s America that could be. Featuring dysfunctional families dabbling in the occult, strange magic woven in the alleys of Hollywood, unspeakably monstrous acts along the 38th parallel and all the Marilyns you can eat, American Nightmare was a very fortunate blind buy for me.

Pantheon, by Josh Strnad

In his first novel, author Josh Strnad introduces us to the small town of Pantheon and the struggles of its inhabitants and founders, the surviving Greek Gods who wage a shadowy war against the inhuman forces of the Legion. On the way, Lamont and Emma, two not-so-regular people, find themselves caught up in the power struggle and petty trysts of divinities and are forced to play their part in deciding the fate of the world.
