About Rich Hawkins
Rich Hawkins hails from deep in the West Country, where a childhood of science fiction and horror films set him on the path to writing his own stories. He credits his love of horror and all things weird to his first viewing of John Carpenter's THE THING. His debut novel THE LAST PLAGUE was nominated for a British Fantasy Award for Best Horror Novel in 2015. The sequel, THE LAST OUTPOST, was released in the autumn of 2015. The final novel in the trilogy, THE LAST SOLDIER, was released in March 2016.

They called it the Event.
The Event changed everything. The earthquakes came first, including the Big One, shattering the Pacific Rim and plunging the world into chaos. Then the seas came, the skies opened, and the never-ending rain began. But as bad as that was, there is something worse.
The Rising has begun.
A lone man who abandoned the world for his addictions searches a waterlogged Austin for something, anything to cling to. Little does he know that something else searches for him.
In the Sonoran Desert, the downtrodden of the world search for a better life north of the border, only to see the desert become an ocean: an ocean that takes life and gives death.
In the woods of Alabama, survivors escape to Fort Resistance, but soon discover that it isn't just the horrors of the deep places of the world that they need to fear; but rather a new and more deadly pestilence that has grown in their own ranks.
In England, it's too late to fight, and all that's left is to survive. One man reaches for his own humanity, but what to do when humanity is an endangered species?
And in the Pacific, He is rising.
In The Abyssal Plain: The R'lyeh Cycle, authors William Holloway, Michelle Garza and Melissa Lason, Brett J. Talley, and Rich Hawkins have created a timely and uniquely modern reimagining of the Cthulhu Mythos.
The Abyssal Plain documents the apocalypse as inspired by H. P. Lovecraft, worsening swiftly from its creepy, suggestive origins to an all-out nightmarish hellscape. Told in the varied voices of its multiple writers--which lends to the feeling of a widespread event--this mosaic novel is a gripping, cinematic roller-coaster ride of action and suspense. Enough with zombies, already...I'd pay to watch a TV show based on this book. "The Walking Squid," anyone? --Jeffrey Thomas, author of Punktown
The strange little girls are orphans and changelings, suburban princesses, housewives, nuns and monsters. They are quirky and sweet, terrifying and heartbreaking. All of them a little lost, brimming with their own uniqueness.
In this strange little book of nineteen tales, Lotte goes swimming with her new fishy friends, Rin is freshly dug up, D'arcy strikes a bargain with the midnight mailman and Adelaide enters the mysterious House of Infinite Diversions. Our girls must fasten their bonnets and straighten their skirts to battle otherworldly dangers and challenging circumstances, internal struggles and doubts – and maybe find out who they really are.

Eighteen stories from indie authors, each one set in the world which Romero created. Some give insights into events from the Dead films, others use the landscape he formed and create something wholly unique, but still governed by the framework within which the films were set. You'll find no running zombies in here, just proper old-school shamblers, set on nothing but ripping people apart and feasting on their flesh!
This book is made by fans, for fans, our humble tribute to a man who set the fire of creativity within so many. It also includes an afterword by Jonathan Maberry, who edited an anthology with George A. Romero himself.
All proceeds will be going to the American Cancer Society, so you can not only enjoy the stories within, but also contribute to trying to beat this deadly disease.
When there's no more room in hell, the dead will walk the earth.

In those abandoned streets and houses he encountered hellish creatures, madness and death, ending in a confrontation with the sadistic Doctor Ridings and his cultists.
He barely made it out alive.
Five years later, he lives in a squalid bedsit, miserable and heartbroken, suffering from nightmares and visions of monstrous things.
He mourns for his daughter, Milly, most of all.
Then one day she returns. However she is not the same girl he once knew, and tells him about terrible places, thin places, where gods and monsters reside in the darkness, waiting to enter our world.
But there is worse to come.
Doctor Ridings and his followers are back, and they have plans for her. Horrific plans of black magic and sacrifice.
With no other option, Albie and Milly are forced to go on the run, beginning an epic chase across the country.
He is all that stands between the monsters and his little girl.
Some tales told only in whispers.
Under the paper thin veneer of our sanity is a world that exists. Hidden just beyond, in plain sight, waiting to consume you should you dare stray from the street-lit paths that sedate our fears.
For centuries the Black Room has stored stories of these encounters, suppressing the knowledge of the rarely seen. Protecting the civilised world from its own dark realities.
The door to the Black Room has once again swung open to unleash twenty one masterful tales of the macabre from the twisted minds of a new breed of horror author.
The Black Room holds many secrets.
Dare you enter… again?
