Posted: October 21, 2016 in Uncategorized

rare-breeds-cover-thumbThose of you waiting for the Kindle version of Erik Hofstatter’s brutal Rare Breeds are in luck. Just in time for that certain perfect holiday, the perfect holiday read is available in eBook form.

Reviews have been excellent. The Grim Reader says, “The pacing is perfect, with no fluff, interesting characters, a great plot twist.”

About that plot twist: Frank Errington’s book review notes, “I’ve read just over one hundred books this year and Rare Breeds has the best ending of the bunch.”

This is the first-ever Halloween release for Dark Silo Press. The book features cover and interior art from Jack Larson. Again, from The Grim Reader: “The artwork by Jack Larson is great and his accompanying pictures inside add to the story.”

So pull up a chair, pop open a bottle of something fermented, and settle in for a long, sleepless night…


rare-breeds-cover-thumbErik Hofstatter’s demented novella, Rare Breeds, is now available in a print edition from Amazon. The book includes cover art and four interior black-and-white paintings by artist Jack Larson. The story, guaranteed to disturb, is introduced by the legendary horror author, Paul Kane.

Surprisingly, this is the first ever Halloween release from Dark Silo. We’re pleased to unleash this dark tale in our favorite month of the year.

Erik Hofstatter, an unabashed “schlock horror” writer, is a member
of the Horror Writers Association. Born in the wild lands of the Czech Republic, he roamed Europe before subsequently settling on English shores, erik-smallstudying creative writing at the London School of Journalism. He now dwells in Kent, where he can be encountered consuming copious amounts of mead and tyrannizing local peasantry.

We at Dark Silo prefer our Colorado micro-brews, but tonight we tip a mug and tyrannize a peasant in his honor. Congratulations on the release of one of the more original horror stories we’ve ever encountered.
