Dark Arts Books has released REDEMPTION, the final book in John Everson’s horror trilogy that began in his Bram Stoker Award-winning first novel, COVENANT. If you like your horror fiction filled with demons and depravity… this is the novel for you! The e-book and trade paperback are both now available on Amazon.
Hardcore horror’s patron saint, Edward Lee, author of Haunter of the Threshold, City Infernal and Header said this about the new novel:
“Redemption unfolds as horror-hero Joe Kieran’s finish-line sprint down the last leg of Everson’s addictive occult storyline of blood-gushing demonic machinations, cursed existential characters, and abominations incarnate.
Everson is a MASTER of the hardcore; he’s the rare kind of writer who’s so good you can’t proceed with your day until the book is finished. No matter what you have planned, forget it; you won’t bother until you’ve turned the last page. (I missed a playoff game because of this book!) Everson kicks out the jambs in this gory story of haunted religious missions, mind-boggling sex-rituals, and jaunts into Hell (and let’s not forget the communal demonic toilet!) The Little Mermaid this ain’t. This is balls-to-the-wall, no-f–ing-around hardcore horror that hits the reader with the impact of a bucket of hot blood and innards in the face. Read it!”
Redemption is Everson’s first novel since 2014’s The Family Tree, and picks up immediately after his second novel, 2007’s Sacrifice left off. Covenant, Sacrifice and Redemption are all Kindle Select titles, which means subscribers to the Kindle Unlimited program can read all three books in the trilogy for free as part of their subscription.

Six years ago this month, Roy Robbins, the publisher of Bad Moon Books, reached out to me to see if I’d be interested in designing the cover for fellow Chicago horror writer Brian Pinkerton. I said possibly, let me take a look at the manuscript. And when I read it… wow. I couldn’t wait to do the cover. Rough Cut is seriously one of my favorite horror novels that I’ve read in the past ten years. And it inspired one of the best book cover designs I think I’ve done.
So… a few weeks ago when Bad Moon phased out the last of their original book line… I was super excited when Brian agreed to have Dark Arts Books take on the paperback edition of Rough Cut. (Crossroad Press currently publishes the e-book edition). I’m proud to have had anything to do with this novel… and I’m excited to be able to bring it to more readers.
Here’s the description of the novel:
Horror legend Harry Tuttle is desperate for a hit. Harry’s career has been on a painful slide ever since he directed a couple of box office winners in the 1980s. Enter Marcus Stegman, a young unknown with a horror picture of his own. It’s not only a brilliant debut — it’s the movie Harry always dreamed of making. A rivalry ensues — and it’s about to become bloody. A suspicious film critic, beautiful young starlet, and deranged fan become entangled in the cut-throat competition where hungry hopefuls will go to any means necessary to break into the big-time…and no one is safe.
Read Rough Cut… NOW! You can thank me later.
