ORIGINAL PROSE FICTION

KOLCHAK-HAUNTED HUNTED FRONT COVER_lower-res.jpg

KOLCHAK: THE NIGHT STALKER HAUNTED & HUNTED

Author: Paul Terry | Cover Art by Jay Piscopo
Publisher: Moonstone Books

Released: May 7, 2024
 

From the bestselling author of The X-Files: The Official Archives comes five brand new Carl Kolchak tales full of dogged reporting and inescapable terror...

Guess Who?

What would you do if you were stuck inside a haunted airport, with your dyspeptic boss, during a blackout? Kolchak uncovers a cold case where aviation history, a terrifying game, and a vengeful ghost collide with baggage-claim delays, publishing deadlines, and Fettuccine Alfredo.

 

Abduction Island

Catalina is a beautiful island off the coast of California, home to hillside vistas, scuba-loving holidaymakers, and bizarre UFO sightings. What was supposed to be an upbeat travel assignment rapidly descends into madness, where Kolchak discovers there really is no such thing as a free lunch.

 

Lake of the Damned

A smashed-up cassette tape found on a Lake Tahoe beach pulls Kolchak into a story where the fate of a missing young reporter is on the line. What are the authorities ignoring? And how does local chatter about a lake monster fit into this murky, extremely fishy tale.

 

Kindness Can Kill You

When driving alone, on an all-day-long road trip, it's not just planning your rest stops that requires careful consideration. Seeing a hitchhiker provokes feelings of concern but also caution. In the middle of nowhere, at the dead of night, one decision by Kolchak leads to the breakdown from hell...

 

Promises, Promises

During an unexpected winter assignment in Paris, France, a jet-lagged Kolchak comes face to face with an impossible crime scene. Did a gigantic stone gargoyle from Notre Dame Cathedral come to life and commit murder outside his hotel? Is it a fiendish hoax, or something more diabolical?

The definitive story of how Marvel Studios created the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as told by the studio's creatives, and the cast and crew of The Infinity Saga

The Story of Marvel Studios

Featuring previously unpublished behind-the-scenes photography and archival production material, as well as personal photos and memorabilia from cast and crew, The Story of Marvel Studios is the essential, collectible chronicle of how the Marvel Cinematic Universe was brought to life.

A fully authorized, richly illustrated inside look into 50 of Mulder and Scully’s most memorable monster cases.


When an X-Files fan opens up bestselling author Paul Terry’s volume, they are gaining access—for the first time—to Agents Mulder and Scully’s notes, records, and visual evidence from actual X-File reports.

 

Designed to mimic a collection of FBI case files and packed with such items as autopsy reports, mug shots, lab results, handwritten notes, newspaper clippings, pages ripped from antique books on the occult, and security camera printouts, this fully authorized book is the only one of its kind.

 

Detailing the agents’ investigations into 50 cases of cryptids, biological anomalies, and parapsychic phenomena—from the Flukeman to The Great Mutato to Pusher—The X-Files: The Official Archives showcases some of the show’s greatest villains (some dastardly, some just misunderstood), and instructs future agents on how to successfully investigate the paranormal.
