Lansdale, Stephen King, Robert R. McCammon, and Douglas E. Winter use their macabre vision to bring us those stories.

Conscience

Conscience

John Skipp

Horror

If Jim Thompson wrote A CHRISTMAS CAROL, it might go a little something like this... CONSCIENCE is a short, fierce novel of corruption and redemption by New York Times bestselling author John Skipp. Using the terse, muscular prose of modern crime fiction, it is a Dickensian fable of hope and despair, 21st century style. CONSCIENCE Charley Weber is a lousy guy. He kills people for a living, and doesn't mind it a bit. He has come to L.A. to do something terrible: for money, for revenge, and to make an ugly point about life and truth and love. But a funny thing happens on the way to the massacre. He finds himself confronted by the only one who could possible stop him. He finds himself confronted by...himself. CONSCIENCE Designed to be read in a single sitting -- in roughly the time it takes to watch a feature film -- CONSCIENCE is lightning-fast yet thematically rich. It's a dangerous story, for our dangerous times: violent, funny, thoughtful, tragic, loving, and wise to the ways of the world. THIS EDITION ALSO FEATURES SIX ADDITIONAL SHORT PIECES, AND THE FEATURE-LENGTH SCREENPLAY "JOHNNY DEATH".

The 25th Anniversary Edition of the Original Splatterpunk Novel An adrenaline-charged tale of unrelenting suspense that sparks with raw and savage energy... The newspapers scream out headlines that spark terror across the city. Ten murders on the New York City subway. Ten grisly crimes that defy all reason -- no pattern, no m.o., no leads for police to pursue. The press dubs the fiend the "Subway Psycho"; the NYPD desperately seeks their quarry before the city erupts in mass hysteria. But they won't find what they're looking for. Because they all think that the killer is human. Only a few know the true story -- a story the papers will never print. It is a tale of abject terror and death written in grit and steel... and blood. The tale of a man who vanished into the bowels of the urban earth one night, taken by a creature of unholy evil, then left as a babe abandoned on the doorstep of Hell. Now he is back, driven by twin demons of rage and retribution. He is unstoppable. And we are all his prey... unless a ragtag band of misfit souls will dare to descend into a world of manmade darkness, where the real and unreal alike dwell in endless shadow. A place where humanity has been left behind, and the horrifying truth will dawn as a madman's chilling vendetta comes to light... Filled with gripping drama and harrowing doomsday dread, The Light at the End is the book that ushered in a bold new view of humankind's most ancient and ruthless evil; a mesmerizing novel from two acknowledged masters of spellbinding suspense.
