Overview

The name Dave Barnett ring a bell? It should -- he's the mastermind behind one of horror fiction's biggest success stories -- Necro Publications. You can thank Dave for publishing amazing extreme horror fiction from the genre's top talents including Edward Lee, Charlee Jacob, Joe Lansdale, Gerard Houarner, Tom Piccirilli, Mehitobel Wilson, and more.

Now's it's his turn to put pen to paper. And trust us, it's not what you expect. This is NOT the extreme fiction you might find in one of Necro's publications. Barnett's fiction packs a punch, from terrifyingly haunting suspense to spine-tingling brutal violence.

Aside from the knockout tale "Spin Cycle" which appeared in the bestselling anthology "Shivers," the rest of these tales are appearing here for the first time, and it's a major debut collection from what we consider to be one of the genre's best-kept secrets.

Among the people you'll meet in Dead Souls are:

• A grade-school genius who longs to teach his bullying classmates a few things about life
• A picture-perfect family with a horrifying secret bubbling beneath the surface
• A serial killer who finds his greatest enemy in the most unlikely of places
• A small-town veterinarian who finds herself at war with an unstoppable killing machine
• A zombie who learns the real definition of having a bad day
• ...and many others...

Barnett is a powerful, unforgettable new talent in writing. As Gerard Houarner says in his introduction, "I can tell you his vision is violent, but it is inevitable violence born out of suffering. Pain is a catalyst, often welcomed, sometimes a door to transcendence. Through suffering, characters outside the mainstream find out who, and what, they truly are. Discovery of self is linked to the discovery of violence in that self. There is attitude. Also a touch of science fiction, and magic. Dave is not without surprises."

You haven't read him before. No one has. But this is a career that you're going to want to say you were there for from the very beginning. Here's your chance.

Don't miss it.

Meet the Author

Dave Barnett lives on the outskirts of Orlando, Florida with his new dog named Dexter. During the day he works as a graphic designer for his Fat Cat Design company designing books for lots of small press publishers. At night he becomes DJ L.D. and runs Necropolis, a long-running industrial / EBM / synthpop / electro night at The Independent Bar in downtown Orlando. Somewhere in there he has managed to run Necro Publications since 1993, publishing some of the best names in modern horror: Edward Lee, Charlee Jacob, Gerard Houarner, Mehitobel Wilson, Jeffrey Thomas, Patrick Lestewka and dozens of others in various anthologies. Dave has been published in a couple of the Shivers anthologies from Cemetery Dance Publications. He also has a story in the two-author chapbook The Baby along with Edward Lee. His collection, Dead Souls, came out form from Shocklines Press in 2004 and at least a couple of people seemed to like it. His book, The Fallen: Book 1 is the first in what will hopefully be a long series books containing tales about angels and demons that will finally come together (fingers crossed) in one climatic battle for Heaven.
