Rose and Stanley are an elderly couple, the sort of neighbours you’d trust to feed your cat and water your plants while you’re away. Not the sort of people you’d imagine rutting like animals on your freshly laundered sheets the minute you’ve gone.

They live with them, dress like them and act like them in order to free their own inner zombies. Once they've learned to harness the zombie's single minded lust for blood nothing will stop them from making a killing on the global markets.

When there's no room left in Hell, the dead will turn to crime.
Welcome to Atros City, where the dead stalk the lean streets, violin cases bulging with sub machine guns, hats pulled down to hide their rotting faces. No-one is safe from the chill hand of the Zombioso - the un-dead Mafia.
It’s 1930 and the whole of the US has gone dry. Papa Sang, head of the Zombioso, has gotten rich off sales of Ascension, a mystical drug that lets you visit Heaven, but his ambitions don’t stop there. He plans a hostile take over of the whole afterlife. All that stands in his way are two rogue angels, the head of the D.A.’s task force, a mystic crossroader and the Zombioso’s head enforcer Slackjaw Harris.
A word of caution gentle reader, these tales will take you places you’ve never been before and may never dare revisit. They’ll whisper truths so twisted you can only face them in the darkest hours of the night. They’ll unlock desires so decadent you’ll never wash their taint from your flesh.
All it takes is a single turn of the page and your taste in dark fiction will be transformed forever. So you have to ask yourself: ‘How daring do I feel...?’

Do not buy this book, gentle reader.
No really, we mean it. Move along, click away from this page and go look at some Dino porn instead. We’re not kidding. The only reason we published it is because award winning author Jasper Bark has got some serious dirt on us. Honestly, there’s no other reason to put out something this depraved.

Here be Monsters! They lurk and crawl and fly in the shadows of our mind. We know them from ancient legends and tales whispered by the campfire. They hide under the dark bridge, in the deep woods or out on the great plains, in the drizzling rain forest or out on the foggy moor, beneath the surface, under your bed. They don’t sparkle or have any interest in us except to tear us apart. They are the monsters! Forgotten, unknown, misunderstood, overused, watered down. We adore them still. We want to give them a renaissance, to reestablish their dark reputation, to give them a comeback, let the world know of their real terror.
