If you aren’t familiar with John C. Foster, you’re missing out on one of the best new names in the horror genre. We published his debut horror novel, Dead Men, back in 2015, and now we are proud to be publishing his debut short story collection, featuring both reprints and original content.
Baby Powder and Other Terrifying Substances will be released on January 31, 2017, but in the meantime, we highly encourage you to pre-order a copy. Anybody who orders a paperback early will receive an eBook a week before the official publication date.

Within these pages, you will board a train to Detroit on a route littered with the darkest monstrosities the mind can imagine (“Highballing Through Gehenna”); a man avenges his father’s murder in a series of violent mobster slayings (“Burial Suit”); a mute ventriloquist and his chattery dummy seek a therapist (“Talk to Leo”); future soldiers summon forth an ancient evil to battle an alien menace (“The Willing”); body smugglers crash land on a world where sinister trees feed on flesh (“Meat”); an interrogation takes a strange, psychedelic turn (“Girl Six”); a special agent investigates a potential alien invasion (“Red”); the undead infiltrate the Whiskey-A-Go-Go (“Dead on the Sunset Strip”); a man is hired by a nefarious agency to witness prison executions around the country (“A Lamb to Slaughter”); and a pair of paranormal scam artists suffer when they confront true evil (“Baby Powder”).
