The Taint.inddEric S. Brown’s The Taint is now available on Amazon for the Kindle (coming to the Nook and Kobo this week). The Great Old One is awake – and the stuff of nightmares have risen up with him, spreading a blight across the world. The dead have returned, laying waste to the world of man. All that stands in the way of total death and destruction is a secret religious order, armed with courage, some ancient rituals, and…a battleship. It’s the zombie apocalypse like you’ve never experienced it before.

Eric S Brown is the author of numerous books including the Bigfoot War series, the Kaiju Apocalypse series (with Jason Cordova), and the A Pack of Wolves series. Some of his stand alone books include War of the Worlds Plus Blood Guts and Zombies, World War of the Dead, Last Stand in a Dead Land, The Weaponer, and Kaiju Armageddon. The first book of his Bigfoot War series is now a feature film from Origin Releasing. Eric also writes an ongoing comic book news column for The Guide and has scripted books for Unstoppable Comics. He lives in North Carolina with his wife and two children.

The Taint includes some interior illustrations by the cover artist, Jack Larson. Jack is a self-taught artist who has been painting and selling macabre art since 2009. Although he began painting as a teenager, he didn’t take it seriously as an occupation, and instead enlisted in the U.S. Army immediately after high school. His training as a Mortuary Affairs Specialist prepared him for a decade long career in the death-care profession which included embalming, decedent transportation, and homicide cleanup. The years he spent away from art prepared him for the business side of being an artist, as well as providing him with the experiences and sights that inspire his work today.

Wretched Walls_final smallSo you think your relationship problems are bad? Garrett Jenkins is remodeling an old Victorian mansion. He has a new girlfriend and a demanding mother (who is also his business partner). Garrett has no room for another woman in his life. Certainly not one who died decades earlier…

Desmond Reddick of Dread Media says, “A slow burn about haunted obsession. You’ll spend the last half of the novella terrified of finding out the truth. Kaufman draws you in with his character work so well, you don’t even realize when he’s begun to scare you…

Just in time for Valentine’s Day. “The Wretched Walls.” Dying alone would be better.
