Dark Thoughts

Kevin J. Kennedy has put together some of the horror world’s bestselling anthologies over recent years. Now, for the first time, he has collected some of his own short stories in one place. Dark Thoughts features a brand new, eight thousand word, tribute story to Richard Laymon’s Dark Mountain.

Praise for the book:

An excellent collection of horror tales, ranging from dark and disturbing to perverse and dark-humored to just flat-out disgusting. Great stuff!
Jeff Strand, author of Everything has Teeth

A collection of good, gory, crazy fun.
Jeff Menapace, author of the Bad Games series

Kevin Kennedy is one of the new breed of horror writing talent who is beginning to make waves in the industry with his captivating style dripping with dread. Definitely one to watch.
Michael Bray, author of the Whisper Trilogy

Dark Thoughts by Kevin Kennedy is everything you want from a horror collection and more. The variety on display here is staggering, from the supernatural to the evil in the hearts of men, but it is always underlined with a visceral grittiness that you just can’t shake. I think we have horror’s answer to Irvine Welsh.
Lee Mountford, author of The Demonic

A stunning horror collection that will keep you turning the pages long after dark.
Christopher Motz, author of Pine Lakes & Tenants

Kevin J. Kennedy writes with an unparalleled voice that grips the reader with an alarming urgency from the first page. Each of the stories told within this solo anthology is a masterpiece of suspense and pacing, each one adeptly spun of the stuff of nightmares and evils yet undiscovered.
Horror has no happy endings. And these dark tales are purely distilled, 100 proof, gut twisting horrors.
Look forward to dimly lit corridors too long for the building, a feral child raised by Pavolvian parents with a taste for human flesh, a camping trip to a forbidden lake that no hikers return from, terrible choices with consequences in the world of drug trafficking, a raw and bloody Tarentino take on The Wizard of Oz classic, and more.
To quote the disfigured and macabre ticket taker in the story, ’Canivalland’
“Perhaps you are meant to join us.”
P. Mattern, author of Strident House

A surreal carousel ride of horror, revenge and crime.
Matthew V. Brockmeyer, award-winning author of Kind Nepenthe and Under Rotting Sky

A richly imagined and brilliantly executed collection of dark tales by a rapidly emerging voice in the horror genre.
C.S. Anderson, author of The Black Irish Chronicles

This horror collection will pull deep strings in your mind…
The end of the world through a double-decker’s window glass. Torture —ashes to ashes. Have you tried to walk in a cannibal’s shoes? They have their own ghosts…
Would the gates of eternity have the shape of a carnival monstrosity?
Oh, a drug dealer shall tremble when hearing “yes… but family.”
Perhaps you would prefer dancing a macabre waltz with Dorothy and her friends in the land of Oz? What about “revenge, sweet revenge”?
Worry not, you can keep the fury of the gods and a flesh feast for dessert.
After all… the author well knows there’s no end like an ancient course to tie up this bouquet of nightmares.
Did this seem to shudder? Wait until you turn the first page, it won’t let you go. You’ll find yourself smiling more than once, it will awake your most disturbing side.
Ten stories to steal your sleep —and your mind.
Enjoy.
Mar Garcia – TBM Horror Experts

I laughed, I cried, and ultimately, I was left wanting more! Bravo Mr. Kennedy.
RJ Roles Author of Girl’s Best Friend

Serving up tales of terror like a cannibal serves up flesh, Kevin Kennedy’s Dark Thoughts are exactly that, and they don’t come much darker. Rounding off the collection with a fitting tribute to Richard Laymon, the stories take you on a red double decker bus ride to a lonely mountain via caves, Oz, and a beach-based carnival. Strap on your seat belt and get ready to go.

Screechers – New Post-Apocalyptic novella.

Synopsis:
In the apocalyptic fallout of the burned world, the screecher is a massive beast evolved to kill and built for survival. One screecher abandons its home among the crushed remnants of a city and moves to explore the wider world. Unbeknownst to it, one of its surviving nephews decides to tag along.

Far away, across the dusty sand dunes, three men flee the smoldering ashes of their community along with their regrets, looking for a new place to survive.

These two stories, of screechers and humans, alternate and dance around each other before the creatures and men intersect and weave into one story.

In the scorched remains, everything struggles to survive. The end of the world produced mutated monsters beyond imagination. When worlds collide, when man meets monster, who will survive in this new world?

What others said about the book:
“With apoc-wolves, giant crabs, and new-world carnage, Screechers is a bloody ripper of a tale.” – Lee Murray, two-time Bram Stoker Award nominee and author of Into the Mist

A tale of beast and man – the perfect combination of beauty and brutality. This story gives you unexpected friendships, terrifying beasts and one of the best battles I’ve ever read. – Andrew Lennon, author of Ode to Death

“Screechers is full of badass creatures, engaging characters and great action as well. A fun, fast read.” – Mike Duke, author of Where the Gods Sleep

Old-school action packed post-apocalyptic sci fi pulp at its screeching best! Must read for fans of the genre – C.S. Anderson, author of Ocean Gores
