Doctor Sleep by Stephen King
On highways across America, a tribe of people called the True Knot travel in search of sustenance. They look harmless- mostly old, lots of polyester, and married to their RVs. But as Dan Torrance knows, and spunky twelve-year-old Abra Stone learns, the True Knot are quasi-immortal, living off the steam that children with the shining produce when they are slowly tortured to death.
My Best Friend’s Exorcism by Grady Hendrix
A heartwarming story of friendship and demonic possessionThe year is 1988. High school sophomores Abby and Gretchen have been best friends since the fourth grade.

Full Throttle by Joe Hill
The number one New York Times best-selling author returns with a dark and ingenious collection of 13 compelling short stories that showcase his ability to “push genre conventions to new extremes” (New York Times Book Review), performed by a stunning multi-cast featuring Zachary Quinto, Wil Wheaton, Kate Mulgrew, Neil Gaiman, Ashleigh Cummings, Joe Hill, Laysla De Oliveira, Nate Corddry, Connor Jessup, Stephen Lang, and George Guidall.
The Deep by Nick Cutter
A strange plague called the ‘Gets’ is decimating humanity on a global scale. I causes people to forget-small things at first, like where they left their keys…then the not-so-small things like how to drive, or the letters of the alphabet. Then their bodies forget how to function involuntarily…and there is no cure. But now, far below the surface of the Pacific Ocean, deep in the Marianas Trench, an heretofore unknown substance hailed as “ambrosia” has been discovered-a universal healer, from initial reports. It may just be the key to a universal cure. Part horror, part psychological nightmare, The Deep is a novel that fans of Stephen King and Clive Barker won’t want to miss-especially if you’re afraid of the dark.
The Cabin at the End of the World by Paul Tremblay
Seven-year-old Wen and her parents, Eric and Andrew, are vacationing at a remote cabin on a quiet New Hampshire lake. Their closest neighbors are more than two miles in either direction along a rutted dirt road. One afternoon, as Wen catches grasshoppers in the front yard, a stranger unexpectedly appears in the driveway.
