War is Hell

There are no winners and no losers, only survival and lost souls amongst the crow-picked bones and corpse-fields. These are the Horrors of War and each has a gruesome story to tell. In the claustrophobic nightmare tunnels of Vietnam, a tunnel rat becomes something less than human. During the Mongol Invasions, a sadistic warrior meets his match in the mother of famine and pestilence. In the human slaughterhouse of Stalingrad, a bloodthirsty creature out of folklore feeds on the dead and dying. And during the height of the Indian Wars, a demonic medicine man returns from the grave with an army of the undead to feed upon white invaders.

From the mindless brutality of the Napoleonic Wars to the hell zones of modern Iraq, the maggoty flesh of the Horrors of War is peeled back to reveal the yellowed bones of Death within, ever patient and ever hungry.

Editor’s Note: This is one of Weird House’s most exciting collections of the year. Beautifully designed by Cyrus Wraith Walker. With unique, and original war-torn stories from the master of extreme horror, Tim Curran. Art by the amazing psychedelic heavy metal album artist Brad Moore, who says, “I will never live long enough to fully realize all of the imagery that breeds within my mind.” I believe, a must have for any book collector!

“Headhunter is a bone-chilling novella from the twisted mind of Tim Curran. The descriptions of atrocities perpetrated by demonic and human monsters were vivid and stomach-churning. I think the Vietnam setting was a perfect choice. This is the second book I have read from Curran, and I am hooked.”
Adam Light, Goodreads

“Tim Curran’s “ The Skull-Eater Campaign” will take traders on the trail of a fearsome cannibal band — right to the end of the trail and a little bit further. Greed and guilt, creatures and fiends, spurs and skulls, cold blooded gunplay and hot blooded horror. The west is weirder than you’ve ever dreamed…”

“Headhunter had me asking myself why I hadn’t gotten to reading it sooner. It’s definitely a new favourite of mine by Curran. It’s well researched and the slang feels right. It’s dark and disgusting, violent and horrifying. It’s a Vietnam War story. It’s a horror story. And a damn good one.”
Jason Reviews, Goodreads

“Cannibalism. Murder. Rape. Absolute brutality. When civilizations ends…when the human race begins to revert to ancient, predatory savagery…when the world descends into a bloodthirsty hell…there is only survival. But for one man and one woman, survival means becoming something less than human. Something from the primeval dawn of the race. “Shocking and brutal, The Devil Next Door will hit you like a baseball bat to the face. Curran seems to have it in for the world … and he’s ending it as horrifyingly as he can.”
Tim Lebbon, author of Bar None

“Tim Curran is one of those guys that people talk about when you speak of ultra-violent and gory horror. Books like Biohazard, or The Devil Next Door are a couple that I’ve read that made my stomach turn. I was wondering where Blackout might lead me when I got this from the publisher to review…Tim Curran builds on this with every turn of the page. Each of the characters have their own unique perspective and voice of the events, and the group survival mentality is in full effect. He does a great job of getting across just how dire of a situation this is through their actions and dialogue. Every bit of it had a purpose and moved this story forward.”

“Tim Curran’s, The Devil Next Door is dynamite! Visceral, violent, and disturbing!”
Brian Keene, author of Castaways and Dark Hollow

“Nightcrawlers is a monster story and an ode to H. P. Lovecraft. I would say that this story has two of Lovecraft’s in it: The Colour Outer Space and Facts Concerning the Late Arthur Jermyn and His Family. It is also completely Tim Curran. Curran manages to own the story and the monsters within it. But one cannot deny the spirit of Lovecraft…So, having read the rest of the story, I can say that I had a great time reading it. You do get to know the characters more and more the deeper you go in, and one thing that surprised me is how much we got to know one character when she wasn’t even in it for very long. Throughout the story, including the ending, Curran shows his talent for creating actual frightening scenes that can linger long after reading them. If you let them. And you should. It is why we read horror after all, isn’t it?”
Darkness Dwells

“Dead Sea is an epic horror novel, and delightfully claustrophobic and reminiscent of Lovecraftian lore, a lengthy voyage into a genuinely chilly, fog-drenched horror novel that all fans should experience.”
Paperback Stash

“Horror is a lot of fun, and Worm is proof of that. If you’re looking for very complex plots with descriptive passages that belong in classic Russian novels and characters with full back stories, look elsewhere. However, if you’re looking for a taut, fun, grisly read, ignore the stench and sink your teeth into this one.”
Gabino Iglesias, HORROR DNA

“Tim Curran has a way of slinging words to create grotesque imagery that makes you cringe and yet you find yourself absorbed, frantically turning the pages to see what kind of gruesome avenues he takes you down. SOW is a quick and thoroughly enjoyable read. This is eye-popping madness, paranoia realized, body horror most foul. Curran takes what should be the one of the happiest times in someone’s life and turns it on its head. Really this is a story for anyone who craves a good, creepy yarn. If you’re a Curran fan and you haven’t read this one, you’d better rectify that. If you haven’t read Curran yet (what?), this is just as good a place as any to start as any. Think Rosemary’s Baby dunked in a bathtub full of acid and you begin to touch on the madness that is SOW”
Robert Essig, Splatterpunkzine

“Okay so I rocked on with this collection, Tasmaniac have kicked a major here kids, and I’ve found a new must read Writer whose name is now chiselled into my tree of counted sorrows. One of the best collections of the year in terms of quality and content, full recommendation this book is one that you simply cannot miss assuming you can get a copy before the print run is depleted. Take down the name Tim Curran, you are going to be hearing a lot about him in the coming years.”
