TALES OF THE LOST VOLUME TWO: A CHARITY ANTHOLOGY FOR CORONA VIRUS 19 RELIEF edited by Eugene Johnson and Steve Dillon.
Loss is part of who we are. We can’t escape it. We learn from it, grow from it and so much more. Some of the greatest stories ever forged come from loss. Within this book are some of those tales. Sit back as you get lost in these tales.....
We lose many things during our time in this universe. From the moment we are born we start losing time, and loss becomes a part of our life from the beginning. We lose friends (both imaginary and real), loved ones, pets, and family. We gain stuff and lose stuff, from our socks to our money. We can lose our hope, sanity, passions, our mind, and perhaps even our soul! In the end when death finds us, we end up losing everything... Don’t we?
Tales of the Lost Volume II takes a dark look at the things we lose and the ghosts we struggle with.

Check out the amazing things people have been saying about TALES OF THE LOST VOLUME TWO: A CHARITY ANTHOLOGY FOR CORONA VIRUS RELIEF:
Comprising unnerving tales of loss from horror’s best-loved writers, LOST 2 is haunting, uncanny, and deeply disquieting. Prepare to lose sleep while reading this one.” — Lee Murray, award-winning author of INTO THE ASHES.
"Tales of the Lost 2 could be called “Tales of the Dark Heart!” From a surprisingly heart-bending revitalization of the troll who lies in wait under a bridge to a chilling story of futuristic atonement; from a coming home story that ends in a not-so-typical cemetery scene to a couple of ultimate sacrifices driven by love, this is a book filled with stories to tear at your heart while making you shiver. There are macabre jack-in-the-boxes and soul-stealing virtual reality games and an apocalypse vision of a mother’s love the likes of which I’ve never read before. These are stories of love and longing and selfless giving and aching loss … with frequent visits from the monstrous things that inhabit the night. This is a volume of horrific heart and chilling beauty.”
- John Everson, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Covenant and Voodoo Heart
“Hot on the heels of the stunning Tales of the Lost - Volume One, this second collection dives deeper into recesses of the mind, soul, and darkness with stories that push the boundaries of the genre. Big names abound, including Neil Gaiman, Joe Hill, and Heather Graham, yet this is also an anthology of the found. Newer unsung authors round out this book that brings a special sparkle to horror that begs to be read - readers will easily find themselves happily "lost" once again.”
- David Simms, Book Reviewer
“As a master of horror & pop culture I’ve been honored to work with my friends behind the new press Plaid Dragon Publishing. They have knocked it out of the park with their first book. Make sure you check them out!”
- Horror icon Tony Todd (Candyman, Night of The Living Dead).

IT CAME FROM THE '80S
Edited by Bram Stoker Award Winner Eugene Johnson
It Came From The 80s features stories about one of our coolest decades. Modern technology has brought some new twists and turns to horror. Found footage, cell phone-based viruses, literal ghosts in the machines. Maybe it’s time for a throwback. It’s time for some new tales of slumber party horrors, VCR monsters, and problems that can’t be solved with a smart phone. We want tales of unstoppable monsters, a sewer-dwelling creatures, looming threats of cold-war chaos. Give us fear under the neon lights of an arcade, people fighting for their lives against the backdrop of a hot city night and a cheesy sax solo. Take us back to a time when latchkey kids had to fend for themselves and the only thing left to stop an unspeakable horror was a plucky band of high school kids. Make it bloody. Make it gnarly. Make it 80s!
Featuring radical stories of terror, from over 15 award winning and bestselling authors including; Tim Waggoner, Joe R. Lansdale and Kasey Lansdale, Linda Addison, F. Paul Wilson, Christina Sng, Stephanie M. Wytovich, John Palisano, Lisa Morton, Vince A. Liaguno, and many more.
“IT CAME FROM THE 80’S sends us rollicking back into the pop culture madness of that genre, and does it with creeps, fun, and great storytelling from today's top horror writers!” -Jonathan Maberry, NY Times bestselling author of INK and ROT & RUIN!
