Paranormal Pest Control

A year ago, a series of earthquakes hit around the world. The damage and loss of life were devastating, and the world became weird but no more than in the quake zone known as Broken Brooklyn. Bugs became demonic, demons invaded, and people with psychic abilities grew stronger. Frank Carver and Hector Ramirez, two exterminators, and Jenny Blake, a woman who can talk to ghosts, have created a business to take out these new pests. And business is booming. When Frank, Jenny, and Hector come across a giant bug, things get even odder: friends go missing, a single female bedbug becomes a prized possession, and Jenny keeps finding bug-possessed people. Frank’s daughter, Angela, an unwilling participant, hears of the coming of the bug king. As Jenny, Frank, and Hector keep hunting for the female bug and missing friends, they wonder if they are getting closer to what or who caused the earthquake.

Meet Lara Frater

I’m your atypical fat gamer girl who loves to write: Horror, non-fiction, poems, paranormal suspense, non-fiction, and sci-fi. Although I prefer to write fiction, my first book was the non-fiction Fat Chicks Rule! A guidebook on being a big girl in a thin world and included information on how to find fat positive books, movies, and TV, where to find fashion, comfortable seating, and how to deal with fat hatred. Writing this book changed my life and perspective on dieting and fat bodies. I also wrote the essay “Fat Heroines in Chick Lit” for the Fat Studies Reader. (This essay from mentioned in the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal, so woohoo!) But my first love was fiction, which I returned to with the End of the Line series. Three zombie novels that take place in a world almost dead of the flu and having to deal with the zombies who rose from the ashes. End of the Line was followed by Stuck in the Middle and Full Circle (Coming 2024). And maybe more books to come. Changing gears I moved on to a more lighthearted paranormal suspense/ horror series Paranormal Pest Control. Where exterminators and paranormal investigators fight demonic bugs. The first book is out. The second book “Dark Thing in the Cemetery” is expected April 2024. I have also appeared in Tales from the Canyon of the Damned and Necrotic Tissues, and have essays about library science (my fun day job). I’m heavily influenced by Joe R. Lansdale, Stephen King, Toni Morrison, Octavia Butler and Richard Matheson. I live in New York City, married to fellow author Jon Frater and have lots of animals and people in my house. I’m in need of an exterminator or an obedient Dalek.

The Atheist’s Prayer (Blood Magic & Angels Book 1)

The operative word to “functioning alcoholic” is the “functioning” part. I think I do a decent job, if I do say so myself. But my senior year of college was never supposed to go like this. My dad’s health is in the tank, and my boyfriend breaking up with me…kind of tipped me over the edge. I may or may not have gotten sloppy drunk and actually prayed for help, but I definitely got way more than I bargained for: an angel—or at least that’s what he calls himself—asking for my help. So somehow I’ve gotta help this angel help me, but when a string of suicides follows in my wake, I start to question everything. Everyone I care about is in danger; can I salvage anything good from what I’ve done?

Why the voice chose him has always been a mystery to Eero, but he stopped worrying about that long ago. The only thing he cares about now is saving the last family he’s got. The people who murdered his little brother and sent him to prison now hunt his older one. To save him, Eero must escape. One gang possesses the skill to pull it off, the Kaval. If Eero joins them though, he’ll start down the sordid path the voice set forth for him.

Sons of Brutality

A SATANIC SNUFF CLUB
A RUTHLESS VIGILANTE
AN INTRICATE WEB OF DECEPTION
WHO CAN YOU TRUST?

Los Angeles is a city under siege.

When Detective Addison Mowbray begins investigating the murders of two young women in the Hollywood Hills, he can’t imagine where the case will lead. He suspects the crimes were inspired by an occult fascination, due to some missing body parts and the inverted Christian cross branded on the victims’ breasts. But apart from Addison’s temperamental partner, Jed, the only other person keen on them pursuing that line of investigation is Lilly Coniglio, a medical examiner from the Coroner’s Department. The LAPD is already under immense public pressure due to all the bad press another killer – a vigilante – has brought to their door: it’s been over a year since the first organized-crime figure showed up full of holes, with a plastic police badge beside his body.

As Addison and Jed navigate a murky, disturbing occult landscape in search of answers, they uncover something even more terrifying than a killer hiding in the shadows: an organization so vile and powerful that it changes their lives forever. These two troubled detectives are all that stand between this organization and a spectacular season of carnage.

Set against a backdrop of urban bleakness and social inequality, ‘Sons of Brutality’ combines deeply flawed protagonists with human monsters, integrating strong dialogue, violent action and gripping suspense.

Gazetteer of British Ghosts

cover

The classic inaugural work by the well-known British ‘ghost hunter’ Peter Underwood (1923-2014), which can now be read in conjunction with a specially created ‘Gazetteer of British Ghosts’ GoogleMap, as well as ‘The Ghostly Gazetteer’, a WordPress blog dedicated to hunting down illustrations to all 236 sites contained in the book.

First published in 1971, and republished under the title ‘The A-Z of British Ghosts’ in the 1990s, this work represents the first attempt to offer a systematic survey of uncanny accounts of ghostly happenings throughout Britain, ranging from legendary to real-life experiences.

This newly revised ‘pure digital’ edition has been updated with information about the current status of each site, and each account has been further revised for greater clarity and ease of reading, following in Underwood’s footsteps in terms of his style, as well as in his aim of making each account as interesting and readable to the reader as possible.

You can read about famous haunted houses such as Borley Rectory, Hampton Court and Glamis Castle, as well as lesser known hauntings such as those associated with Woburn, Bury St Edmunds, and the Gargoyle Theatre in London’s Soho.

This new edition also includes a foreword by Underwood’s son Christopher, as well as an afterword by author Alan Williams, followed an interview Williams conducted with Underwood in 1997.

‘Every single entry has been reconsidered for today’s readership – to bring Underwood’s original accounts into the present – to enliven them and carry on his original endeavour to present them to the reader in the most accessible and readable way’ – Adam Underwood – Editor of the ‘Revised Edition’.

‘I read Peter Underwood, book after book, year after year and I hope that I am able to make my own readers feel that way about my own.’ – Alan Williams, author of The Seance Parlour (2013)
