Looks like we don't currently have a thread for 2016. Here goes, then...

All three of Gary Brandner's Howling novels have dropped to 99p at Amazon UK, as has the complete omnibus edition.

The Howling
The Howling II
The Howling III
The Howling Trilogy

From the product information for The Howling Trilogy -

Quote
“If you haven’t read Gary Brandner, you’re missing a treat.” ~ STEPHEN KING

Three great books... one low price!

THE HOWLING: Karyn and her husband Roy had come to the peaceful California village of Drago to escape the savagery of the city. On the surface Drago appeared to be like most small rural towns. But it was not. The village had a most unsavory history. Unexplained disappearances, sudden deaths. People just vanished, never to be found.

THE HOWLING II: For Karyn it was the howling. The howling that had heralded the nightmare in Drago… the nightmare that had joined her husband Roy to the she-wolf Marcia and should have ended forever with the fire. But it hadn’t. Roy and Marcia were still alive, and deadly… and thirsty for the most horrifying vengeance imaginable.

THE HOWLING III: They are man. And they are beast. Once again they stalk the night, eyes aflame, teeth flashing in vengeance. Malcolm is the young one. He must choose between the familiar way of the human and the seductive howling of the wolf. Those who share his blood want to make him one of them. Those who fear him want him dead. Only one woman and one man want to help him. Even though they can't believe their ears. Or their eyes.

From the DRM-free thread, and for this sadly stagnant thread.
Quote ATDrake
The Weird Horror Bundle presented by publisher Lazy Fascist Press, containing works of horror-leaning speculative weird fiction, including works by multi-time winners of the Bram Stoker Award such as Brian Keene and John Skipp, as well as authors who have been nominated for other sfnal genre awards, such as the British Fantasy and Wonderland Awards.

$5 minimum gets you 5 titles (3 novels + 1 story collection + 1 story collection with author's notes about the creative process of writing), $14 top-tier nets you an additional 4 titles (3 novels + 1 poetry collection). Unlike Humble Bundle, there doesn't seem to be a way to top up your pledge, so please be sure of which tier you want before purchasing.

So glad you created this thread; thank you.

Here are two freebies of interest, both independently published by Frank Tayell. I've read both, enjoyed them, and look forward to reading the rest of the series. These books take a fresh approach to the zombie-apocalypse genre and are better-written than some others in the genre that have been published by the Big5:

Surviving The Evacuation, Book 0.5: Zombies vs The Living Dead
Quote
Overview

The outbreak began in New York. Within days it had spread throughout the world. Nowhere is safe from the undead.

As anarchy and civil war took grip across the globe, Britain was quarantined. The press was nationalised, martial law, curfews and rationing were implemented. It wasn’t enough. An evacuation was planned. The inland towns and cities of the United Kingdom were to be evacuated to defensive enclaves being built around the coast, the Scottish Highlands, and in the Irish Republic.

For George Tull and the other residents of the Waverly-Price Retirement Home, walking to the coast is not an option. Abandoned by the staff, they wait for rescue. It doesn’t come. When George leaves the illusory security of The Home and ventures into the nearby village, he finds it deserted. But he is not alone, his unhappy retirement is broken by the undead. George is left with a terrible choice; stay and fight to save the people he loathes, or leave and abandon the woman he has come to love. (15,000 words)

Other books in the near future, post-apocalyptic series Surviving The Evacuation: 0.5: Zombies vs The Living Dead. 1: London. 2: Wasteland. 3: Family. 4: Unsafe Haven. 5: Reunion.

Surviving The Evacuation Book 1: London
Quote
Overview

The outbreak began in New York. Soon it had spread to the rest of the world. People were attacked, infected, and they died. Then they came back. Nowhere is safe from the undead.

As anarchy and civil war took grip across the globe, Britain was quarantined. The press was nationalised, martial law, curfews and rationing were implemented. It wasn’t enough. An evacuation was planned. The inland towns and cities of the UK would be evacuated to defensive enclaves being built around the coast, the Scottish Highlands, and in the Irish Republic.

Bill Wright broke his leg on the day of the outbreak. Unable to join the evacuation, he watched from his window as the streets filled with refugees. He watched as the streets emptied once more. He watched as they filled up again, this time with the undead. Then the power went out.

He is trapped. He is alone. He is running out of food and water. He knows that to reach the safety of the enclaves he will have to venture out into the wasteland that once was England. On that journey he will ultimately discover the horrific truth about the outbreak, a decades old conspiracy, and his unwitting part in it.

This is the first volume of his journal. (73,000 words)

Bird Box by Josh Malerman

Quote
Written with the narrative tension of The Road and the exquisite terror of classic Stephen King, Bird Box is a propulsive, edge-of-your-seat horror thriller, set in an apocalyptic near-future world—a masterpiece of suspense from the brilliantly imaginative Josh Malerman.

Something is out there . . .

Something terrifying that must not be seen. One glimpse and a person is driven to deadly violence. No one knows what it is or where it came from.

Five years after it began, a handful of scattered survivors remain, including Malorie and her two young children. Living in an abandoned house near the river, she has dreamed of fleeing to a place where they might be safe. Now, that the boy and girl are four, it is time to go. But the journey ahead will be terrifying: twenty miles downriver in a rowboat—blindfolded—with nothing to rely on but her wits and the children’s trained ears. One wrong choice and they will die. And something is following them. But is it man, animal, or monster?
Highly recommended, non-zombie, post-apocalyptic horror.

Afraid - A Novel of Terror by Jack Kilborn free now at Amazon. I love JA Konrath's Jack Kilborn books.

http://www.amazon.com/Afraid-Novel-Terror-Jack-Kilborn-ebook/dp/B009KA18NO

WELCOME TO SAFE HAVEN, POPULATION 907...

Nestled in the woods of Wisconsin, Safe Haven is miles from everything. With one road in and out, this is a town so peaceful it has never needed a full-time police force. Until now...

A helicopter has crashed on the outskirts of town and something terrible has been unleashed. A classified secret weapon programmed to kill anything that stands in its way. Now it’s headed for the nearest lights to do what it does best. Isolate. Terrorize. Annihilate.

Soon all phone lines are dead and the road is blocked. Safe Haven’s only chance for survival rests on the shoulders of an aging county sheriff. And as the body count rises, the sheriff realizes something even more terrifying - maybe death hasn’t come to his little town by accident...


WELCOME TO SAFE HAVEN, POPULATION 907... 906... 905...

AFRAID by Jack Kilborn
Are you afraid of the dark? You will be.
