Accepting Bitcoin?

Why not? Deadman’s Tome has produced quality titles such as Book of Horrors, No Safe Word, He’s Risen, Monsters Exist, Campfire Tales, and more. While each issue has it’s own theme and flavor, they all have a dark, unapologetic delivery of bone chilling horror.

 

There are many ways to acquire these titles and enjoy them, but they’re all so old fashioned. True, you can read them on Amazon Kindle, Kindle Unlimited, and even read them for being a patron, but that’s still using real money. What about cryptocurrency? What about bit coin? We wouldn’t object to that.

Right now, Deadman’s Tome will accept bitcoin, and best part is you set the price. If you see a title you want to read, and you got some bitcoin, send me an email and we can work out a price: jessecdedman@gmail.com

We’ll also gladly take bitcoin donations.

‘Twas the Night Before Madness – S. Alessandro Martinez

cover
Available Now

‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the home
All the shadows were stirring, all ready to roam;
Offerings were hung by the chimney with care,
bits of bone, and organs, and scalps with some hair.

The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
when a sharp-bladed axe went clean through their heads;
And mamma all dead now, and I in my mask,
had just now completed my life’s greatest task.

When down in the basement came a blasphemous sound,
I sprang from the room as the noise shook the ground.
Away to the cellar I flew like a flash,
tore open the door and heard something splash.

The ritual had called for killing and chants,
to bring forth the Old Ones, and the powers they grant.
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
but a portal, a gate, all roiling and queer.

Now came a limb, writhing, tentacular,
I gazed in excitement, ‘twas something spectacular.
More rapid than eagles more tendrils shot out,
they shrieked and they roared, and I started to shout;

“Yog-Sothoth, the Gate, and also the Key!
On, Dagon, on, Hastur, on, Yig and Gla’aki!
Cthulhu, Great Dreamer, now, Ithaqua, Wind-Walker!
On, Nyarlathotep, and Cthylla, the Daughter!”

And then, with a singularly thunderous boom,
revealed before me, were the bringers of doom.
Indescribable was the place I saw through that portal,
My mind shattered to pieces, for I was but mortal.

And the beings I witnessed, the Masters I’d called,
their millions of eyes, they held me enthralled;
Then a whisper, a word, crept into my brain,
a worm boring deep, causing me pain.

The eyes — how they twinkled! the shrieking how scary!
Their tongues were like serpents, and one was quite hairy!
Their wide yawning mouths seemed to grow and to grow,
And the drool of their chins was as white as the snow.

The most fetid of breath passed right through their teeth,
and the miasma encircled my head like a wreath;
They were hungry for minds to put in their bellies,
That shook, when they screamed like bowlfuls of jelly.

They spoke many a word, all unutterably insidious,
filling me with knowledge, both eldritch and hideous.
And laying a tendril aside of my nose,
the Dreamer, he whispered, and my euphoria rose;

“The time’s now to slay, to tear bone from the gristle,
Then away they all flew out of that gate of abyssal.”
And I heard them exclaim, as they flew out of sight,
“OUR SLUMBER IS OVER, THIS IS YOUR LAST NIGHT!”

Trump Inauguration Special!

6x9_front_coverjan2017behead
It’s practically free

 

To commemorate Donald Trump’s inauguration and the dawn of the incoming disaster known as the Trump administration, Deadman’s Tome is offering a huge discount on Trumpocalypse! Don’t bemoan my conservative friends, even if you voted for Trump you must admit that his cabinet selections are a disaster, a complete unmitigated disaster. But what’s not a disaster is the huge discount on Deadman’s Tome Trumpocalypse.

Don’t like Trump? Great, then this assortment of dark Trump satire is for you. Don’t like politics? Well, let me tell you that The Appointment, a story about politicians fighting to the death for positions, might just be your cup of tea. Deadman’s Tome Trumpocalypse is available for Amazon Kindle, kindleunlimited, and Kindle ready devices (smart phones and tablets) for $4.99. But if you hurry, you can get a copy for as low as .99c!

The Donald Trump inauguration special will run all weekend, but those that act fast will be able to take advantage of the countdown discount of 80%. I’m practically giving it away!

Deadman’s Tome Book of Horrors II Review

Format: Kindle Edition

A surprisingly strong collection of dark, often extreme horror, Deadman’s Tome Book of Horrors II is a slender sampling of the genre. There are stories of both supernatural and human horror contained herein, all said to be torn from a cursed tome that has driven men to madness, murder, and more.

The Valley of Sex by Joseph Rubas was an early favorite for me, a vintage pulp-style horror/adventure story in the vein of Howard and Lovecraft, with some nasty supernatural sex deep within subterranean ruins. DOSE by Marc Shapiro was an odd one, with some really stellar moments (the insatiable whore with no face upon her smooth, egg-like face stands out for me), but I expected something more from the climax.

The Chasm Bridged by Carson Winter was another favorite, a haunted house story that effectively shocks with what you can’t see, before taking an unexpected twist. Easily the most human, most contemporary story in the collection, An Identity For Sam Piles by Spinster Eskie is also the most surprising, in that it effectively humanizes a monster, and starts building our empathy before ever engaging our disgust.

The next three stories fell flat for me, but the collection ends on a high note with a pair of Jack the Ripper tales. The Woman in Red by B Thomas was my favorite of the two, giving us a very sad, yet somewhat sexy motivation for the murders, while The Adler Street Boarding House by Kel y Evans takes a more subtle approach, setting up a soft climax that teases a fictional parallel with Edgar Allan Poe.

While it doesn’t sustain the erotic shock value of the first two tales, Deadman’s Tome Book of Horrors II is a better collection for branching out and really delving deep into the depravity of the genre.

What The Fuck Deadman’s Tome

6x9_front_coverjan2017ii
Read This

…how dare you release such a fucking awesome anti-christmas theme anthology! Sensationalized headline aside, Deadman’s Tome Krampus Christmas has received some amazing reviews on Amazon. Check out what MA Book Reviewer had to say:

A vulgar and demented Christmas! A focused anthology, the six stories (one poem) play off each other attacking the holidays in decidedly different (and perverse) ways.

Deadman’s Tome Krampus Christmas is certainly very vulger, obscene, and is absolutely not for children, and that unadulterated, unfiltered edge is what the readers enjoy. Check out these reviews:

This is a fantastic anthology which really captures the darker side of the holiday season. Each of the six stories (one poem) takes great glee in showing the reader just how dark and disturbing Christmastime can be, and from the very first page the pace never relents. Read this in one sitting, preferably with the lights turned down low.

This anthology is a tight, six story excercise in horror that is an ideal ebook gift for any lover of the genre. I liked that the stories could be consumed in short sittings and the originality on display here is very, very good. We have deadly snowmen of a different kind, a deadly visitor that brings a lot more than presents to a family one Christmas, and a horrendous holiday discovery in some backwater woods. For the price you can’t argue. Give it a bash. It’s very good.

It’s hard to argue a price of $2.99, the price of a tall RedBull. A RedBull that you’ll down and end up just pissing away. This terrifying horror anthology, however, will stay with you, and quite possibly haunt you.

Check out Deadman’s Tome Krampus Christmas

Horror So Good It Just Might Kill

6x9_Front_Coverhand
Read Today

Book of Horrors, available on Amazon Kindle, consists of ten solid terrifying horror stories and is absolutely perfect for those that enjoy a good scare. But readers should take caution. It should be of no surprise that a horror collection titled Book of Horrors would contain stories and passages from a cryptic source. A source that could be traced back to the disappearance of the Mayans, the fall of Rome, and the rise of the occult. The people involved in discovering the ancient source material suffered intense migrans, demonic hallucinations, and some even took their own lives.

Book of Horrors features chilling tales of cold-blooded murder, demonic possessions, zombie apocalypse, invasive body parasites, and much more. Each story tells a self-contained narrative with its own unique theme and influences.

Whether your taste for horror is H. P. Lovecraft, Stephen King, or Tales from the Crypt, Book of Horrors is an essential horror anthology that’ll leave you haunted.

There are two ways for horror fiends to get their hands on Book of Horrors. Book of Horrors can be purchased from Amazon for $2.99 and read on Kindle, e-reader, or even modern phones.

Or, horror readers can have access to Book of Horrors, along with other horror anthologies, by pledging a dollar ($1) on Patreon at https://www.patreon.com/deadmanstome
