The last Ginger Nuts of Horror's News blast before Christmas is a special book only edition, filled with news about books you can purchase for last minute gifts and some that you can spend your Christmas money on in the new year.
The Border by Robert McCammon FINALLY AVAILABLE IN THE UK
Robert McCammon's rather excellent The Border is finally available as a mass market kindle edition in the UK. Previously only available as a limited edition hardback from Subterranean Press, this excellent novel which had Ginger Nuts of Horror's Tony Jones raving about it in this review is an ideal pre Christmas Gift for yourself.
World Fantasy award-winning, bestselling author Robert McCammon makes a triumphant return to the epic horror and apocalyptic tone reminiscent of his books Swan Song and Stinger in this gripping new novel, The Border, a saga of an Earth devastated by a war between two marauding alien civilizations.
But it is not just the living ships of the monstrous Gorgons or the motion-blurred shock troops of the armored Cyphers that endanger the holdouts in the human bastion of Panther Ridge. The world itself has turned against the handful of survivors, as one by one they succumb to despair and suicide or, even worse, are transformed by otherworldly pollution into hideous Gray Men, cannibalistic mutants driven by insatiable hunger. Into these desperate circumstances comes an amnesiac teenaged boy who names himself Ethan—a boy who must overcome mistrust and suspicion to master unknowable powers that may prove to be the last hope for humanity's salvation. Those same powers make Ethan a threat to the warring aliens, long used to fearing only each other, and thrust him and his comrades into ever more perilous circumstances.
A major new novel from the unparalleled imagination of Robert McCammon, this dark epic of survival will both thrill readers and make them fall in love with his work all over again.

A GATHERING OF EVIL BY GIL VALLE OUT ON JAN 2 2018
Gil Valle, the former NYPD patrol cop who rose to infamy in 2012 after he was wrongfully arrested by the feds for allegedly plotting to kidnap, cook, and eat women, fleshes out his fantasies in his debut novel, A Gathering of Evil, serving up a feast of gut-churning horror.
Sarah McConnell and Jennifer Miller are two young, attractive New Yorkers leading seemingly normal lives. Unbeknownst to them, they have been targeted by a group of wealthy and violent sadists, who meet through the Dark Web and share some rather unusual and deviant sexual desires, along with a desire to turn those twisted fantasies into reality.
Marilyn and Bruce, the wealthy couple from upstate New York who have organized the event, have gathered this group of people from all different backgrounds and brought them together through a common bond: The lust and desire to kidnap a young woman and brutally end her life. The hunt is on. Will the prey survive this gathering of evil?
About the Author
Gil Valle is a former NYPD patrol cop who rose to infamy in 2012 after he was wrongfully arrested by the feds for allegedly plotting to kidnap, cook, and eat women. He became known to the world as the “Cannibal Cop” and faced life in prison. Valle has since been completely exonerated of all wrongdoing. In February of 2017 he released the critically acclaimed Raw Deal — a memoir about his ordeal and the criminal case.
"An unflinching, downright scary memoir of injustice from a man whose penchant for morbid role-plays landed him in prison. Gil Valle's sick, sexual, sometimes silly online chats were used against him by the feds, and he was convicted of masterminding an improbable conspiracy of cannibals that stretched across three continents. The outrageous prosecution cost him nearly everything he had—but now, finally, Valle has found a way to write his story for himself." —Daniel Engber, Columnist for Slate Magazine
"Raw Deal, co-written with Brian Whitney, is an engrossing and very well-written book that shows a different side to the Valle who became a vilified punchline. Aside from the lurid subject matter, the book is important because it describes an apparent real-life case of the Orwellian nightmare of being persecuted and put on trial simply for “thought crime”. —Christine Colby, Managing Editor of CrimeFeed.com
"This has to be one of the most fascinating and disturbing cases I've ever looked into. Disturbing not because of what he said, but because he was almost put in prison for life for his thoughts." —Journalist Melkorka Licea, New York Post
Gil Valle resides in Queens, NY with his two dogs Dudley and Tyson. He has appeared on Inside Edition, Crime Watch Daily with Chris Hansen, People Magazine, Cracked.com, Slate, The New York Post, The New York Daily News, The New York City Crime Report, True Murder with Dan Zupansky, and many other places.

Angel of the Underground by David Andreas
"David Andreas was a super-talented contributor to Fangoria during its glory gory days. His fiction debut bodes well for readers of unique and scary horror."
--Tony Timpone, former editor, Fangoria magazine
When three children in a Catholic group home are brutally murdered, the survivors are hurried into separate foster homes across Long Island. Robin Hills, a fifteen-year-old who has spent the past several years under religious care, is thrust into a new, dysfunctional family with no spiritual beliefs. No longer protected by the religion and the nun she had come to love, Robin is completely alone and enveloped in fear.
As the murders continue and Robin fears she may become the next victim, her faith increasingly falters. However, she finds solace in a budding friendship with Dennis, a boy her age living in her new foster home. Dennis’s kindness, his acceptance of Robin, and his bravery in the face of evil--born of his passion for horror movies--combine to reassure her that she'll survive the killings.
Armed with this new friendship and fueled by a rage she finally discovers within herself, Robin finds the courage and self-reliance to confront the darkest aspects of human depravity.
