Overview

EIGHT TALES OF TERROR AND SUSPENSE FROM MASTER STORYTELLER JOE McKINNEY.

The Red Empire is the Army’s secret weapon against insurgents the world over. A gigantic colony of inch long, super-intelligent fire ants, The Red Empire is capable of fighting any enemy, no matter where they’re hiding. But when the military transport tasked with delivering this weapon washes out in a flash flood along the Texas-Mexico border, and the ants are loosed upon the countryside, no one is safe…

Included in this collection are seven additional tales of murder and injustice, things criminal and darkly supernatural. McKinney takes us from the ghostly sorrow of a grieving parent to the depths of a Lovecraftian nightmare, from a sanity-destroying discovery by one of America’s greatest writers to a love lost that won’t let go until a man is driven over the edge. Tales of horror and human depravity you won’t dare miss!

“Joe McKinney has been my favorite horror writer since he first broke on the scene. Each story in The Red Empire is a dangerous gem of a tale. Here is the most original voice of modern horror.”

—Jonathan Maberry, New York Times Bestselling Author of Assassin’s Code and Dead of Night
