Blast off to new adventures across time and space, with author Christopher Cobb at the helm.
The novel follows Trace Jackson, modern-day Floridian, after a botched alien abduction sends him back in time to 1818. He meets a beautiful Seminole woman, and the two strike up a relationship. Unfortunately, Trace’s distant ancestor, General Andrew Jackson, is hell-bent on driving out the Seminoles by whatever means necessary.
Meanwhile, Josette Legard is transported from World War II-era France to fight an interstellar war. Her new "allies" have offered Josette her heart's desire—the chance to live during the Italian Renaissance—but Josette questions whether her trust in them is misplaced.
Can they survive to fulfill their destinies in another dimension where time no longer has meaning, on a moon called Sun?
We are pleased to announce the addition of four new authors who will be contributing to volume three of our Shadows And Teeth anthology. This volume will have more star power than ever before, thanks to the world-class talent our series has garnered. Read on, and let us introduce you to the masters of horror featured in volume three.
Guy N. Smith
Guy N. Smith is a best-selling author with over 100 books to his name. Genres include: horror, mystery fiction, westerns, children's fiction and a number of non-fiction titles. He first wrote for the sporting press in 1963 and over the ensuing years contributed many articles to The Gamekeeper & Countryside, Shooting Times and several other publications. He has also penned many short stories for anthologies including the legendary London Mystery Selection. In between his writing he has had a varied and interesting career: he worked in banking, was a private detective and had his own shotgun cartridge loading business.
Adam Millard is the author of twenty-two novels, twelve novellas, and more than two hundred short stories, which can be found in various collections, magazines, and anthologies. Probably best known for his post-apocalyptic and comedy-horror fiction, Adam also writes fantasy/horror for children, as well as bizarro fiction for several publishers. His work has recently been translated for the German market.
Nathan Robinson lives in Scunthorpe, England with his wife/editor and twin boys. He's contributed to over twenty different anthologies so far, with lots more on the horizon. His crime thriller Top of the Heap was adapted in a podcast by www.pseudopod.org to rave reviews. Starers, released by Severed Press in 2012 gained much praise, with fans hungry for a sequel.
Richard Ayre was born in Northumberland, Northern England, and now lives in Newcastle upon Tyne where he continues to write horror fiction. At an impressionable age he fell in love with new wave Heavy Metal and rock music, and at the same time read his first James Herbert novel. The combination of these two magnificent things led him to write Minstrel's Bargain, a tale of music and horror. Minstrel's Bargain is the first novel in the Prophecy Books. Richard has also written Minstrel’s Renaissance, the second of that trilogy, and Point of Contact, a sci-fi chiller, as well as the short story anthology A Hatful of Shadows. When not writing, Richard can be found zooming around the Northumberland countryside on his motorcycle, Tanya.
We're happy to announce we've signed three authors for volume three of our celebrated Shadows And Teeth horror anthology series. Two are new authors to the Syndicate, while one of them is our very own Nicholas Paschall, prolific horror author.
Born and raised in Texas, Nicholas Paschall has served two years as a recurring columnist for Dark Eclipse Magazine and is a current columnist for The London Horror Society. He is a prolific writer, his work having been published in nineteen different printed anthologies and magazines. Aside from his contribution to Shadows And Teeth, Mr. Paschall's upcoming novel, The Father of Flesh, will also be published through Darkwater Syndicate in 2017.
Steven Deighan was born in Edinburgh in 1983. He is the author of Things From The Past and Stages of Undress, and the original indie graphic book, Feels Like Stephen King. He lives with his partner and their children in a rural town in North Lanarkshire, Scotland, where he writes a mix of prose and graphic novel scripts. Most notable is his 2016 3D horror comic book, The Party, based on the 1999 national award-winner of the same name.
Praise for Steven Deighan:
"You have to admire his passion for his art"
—Henry Northmore, The List
"Such a passion, talent for nuance, and a skill at chilling to the very core of your being"
—Kevin Etheridge, Dark Discoveries
"He imbues his tales with emotion and style"
—Paul Kane, author of The Hellraiser Films & Their Legacy
David Owain Hughes
In his own words, David Owain Hughes is a horror freak! He grew up on ninja, pirate and horror movies from the age of five, which helped rapidly install in him a vivid imagination.

He’s had several short stories published in various online magazines and anthologies, along with articles, reviews and interviews. He’s written for This Is Horror, Blood Magazine and Horror Geeks Magazine. He’s the author of the popular novel Walled In (2014) and Wind-Up Toy (2016), along with his short story collections White Walls and Straitjackets (2015) and Choice Cuts (2015).
