Clickers (By:J.F. Gonzalez,Mark Williams)

In a peaceful New England village, terror lies lurking beneath the surface…
Phillipsport, Maine seems to be the perfect place for novelist Rick Sychek to settle. A small seaport village, it is quaint and peaceful, just what Rick needs in order to write his next novel. On his drive into town, Rick runs over what appears to be a large crab in the road. About the size of a common house cat and sporting a segmented tail that resembles the stinger of a scorpion, it is unlike any crustacean he or anybody else in town has seen before. Within the next day the town is besieged by hundreds of the creatures which Rick calls Clickers due to the sound their claws make as the click together as they ravage and plunder anything unlucky enough to get in their way. Hundreds of Clickers beach themselves in a wave of terror that ends in horror and death for some…
but it brings the town together collectively in a fight to drive the creatures back. Rick joins his new friends in fighting the creatures only to discover that the Clickers aren’t merely here to ravage and pillage. They are being driven onto the shores of this New England village by instinct. For something is hunting the Clickers. Something far worse than any of them could ever imagine.

Clickers II (With: J.F. Gonzalez)

The first wave was only the beginning. Since it’s publication in 1999, Clickers by J.F. Gonzalez and Mark Williams has become a geunine cult classic, garnering a legion of fans and single handedly revitalizing the ‘munch out’ sub genre. Like Jaws did a decade before, Clickers gave readers another reason not to go in the water. But now, it’s not even safe on land. Delirium Books is proud to present Clickers II: The Next Wave. J.F. Gonzalez has teamed with best selling novelist Brian Keene for a second assault this time on a national scale. The Clickers are back, wreaking havoc on a United States already demoralized and defenseless thanks to a category five hurricane and a president who rules through religious zealotry. Now, as the death toll climbs into the thousands, two survivors from the original invasion find themselves teamed up with a marine biologist and a mob hitman, and on the run from the Clickers, the Dark Ones, and their own government. And as their enemies close in on all sides, only one thing is certain if they fail, humanity loses. Clickers II: The Next Wave. This time, the crabs eat you…

Clickers III (With: J.F. Gonzalez)

They thought it was over, but the second wave was only the beginning. In the aftermath of the Clickers and Dark Ones’ siege and a coup against an insane President, America rebuilds. Change has come, and a better future is promised to all. But promises can be broken and there may be no future at all because deep beneath the ocean, a new terror awaits. Dagon, god of the Dark Ones, is waking up…
and if humanity doesn’t stop him, then mankind will face extinction. Trapped on a South Pacific Island, the cast of Clickers and Clickers 2: The Next Wave join forces with a mysterious group of occult agents to face off against the Clickers, the Dark Ones, Dagon and an all new threat the deadly obsidian Clickers.

And now he seems fated to stay for the rest of his life. Tommy’s just learned he s going to die young and soon. But he refuses to leave his family with less than nothing especially now that he has nothing to lose.

Over a couple of beers with his best friends, John and Sherm, Tommy launches a bold scheme to provide for his family s future. And though his plan will spin shockingly out of control, it will throw him together with a child whose touch can heal and whose ultimate lesson is that there are far worse things than dying.

But nothing can prepare them for when they find out the truth about this horrible house.

Goblins (By:Charles L. Grant)

Opening the X Files…

MeetMulder and Scully, FBI. The agency maverick and the female agent assigned to keep him in line.

Their job: investigate the eeriest unsolved mysteries in modern America, from pyro psychics to death row demonics, from rampaging Sasquatches to alien invasions. The cases the Bureau wants handled quietly, but quickly, before the public finds out what’s really out there. And panics. The cases filed under ‘X.’

Whirlwind (By:Charles L. Grant)

Serial killers come in all shapes and sizes, but this one is particularly puzzling. There’s no pattern to the mutilated bodies that have been showing up in Albuquerque: both sexes, all races, ages, ethnic groups. There is no evidence of rape or ritual. Only one thing connects the victims. They were the victims of a natural disaster. One of the most unnatural natural disasters imaginable, leading to a most painful, most certain and most hideous death…

Mulder and Scully, FBI: the agency maverick and the female agent assigned to keep him in line. Their job: investigate the eerie unsolved mysteries the Bureau wants handled quietly, but quickly, before the public finds out what’s really out there. And panics. The cases filed under ‘X.’

Ground Zero (By:Kevin J. Anderson)

Dr. Gregory, a renowned nuclear weapons researcher, is not only dead he’s been charred to a radioactive cinder. Since this is a death on Federal property, Mulder and Scully are hastily called in. As FBI agents who specialize in unexplained phenomena, they are the investigators of The X Files, strange and inexplicable cases which are also mysteries that the FBI doesn’t want solved. When a second victim, completely unrelated to nuclear science or Dr. Gregory is obliterated in the New Mexico desert, and then a third dies the same way in Washington, DC, Mulder and Scully begin to focus on the frightening dimension of their task. The bizarre deaths cannot be a coincidence. And as they work to uncover the secret unifying element that unites these deaths, it becomes clear that this twisted puzzle has fatal consequences for the entire world.

Ruins (By:Kevin J. Anderson)

A well connectedAmerican archaeologist disappears while exploring the lost Mayan city ofXitaclan and FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully are flown to the Yucat njungles to investigate. Not an ordinary FBI team, Mulder and Scully are assigned to the X Files,the strange and inexplicable cases the FBI wants to keep hidden from scrutiny…
thecases involving the paranormal, the supernatural and possibly, the extraterrestrial. Based on a mysterious jade artifact and ominous local legends, Mulder decidesthere may be more to this case than simply a missing team of scientists namely ancient curses, blood sacrifices, and deadly reptilian monsterslost in the jungle since before history. Scully is more skeptical. Her priorityis to keep an eye on her partner and try to provide logical explanationsfor Mulder’s unorthodox speculations. Unbeknownst to the two FBI agents, the lost city of Xitaclan is the sceneof an impending three way brush war between Central American drug lords,international smugglers who deal in looted Mayan artifacts, and a covertU.S. military commando team that has been sent to investigate, and destroy,a strange electronic signal received from beneath the ruins a signalaimed upwards, at the stars!

Antibodies (By:Kevin J. Anderson)

A novel based on the Emmy Award winning television series created by Chris Carter. When a disease ravaged body is found in the smoldering ruins of the federally funded DyMar genetic research lab, Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully fear that a deadly, man made plague is on the loose. As the FBI agents investigating the ‘X Files’ cases the bureau has deemed unsolvable Mulder and Scully pursue the truth wherever it leads, even into the labyrinthine corridors of the FBI…
and beyond. Racing to contain the lethal virus before it can spread, Mulder and Scully make a chilling discovery. Before his death, Dr. David Kennessy, a hotshot cancer researcher at DyMar, had been experimenting with a promising but highly dangerous technology: microscopic bio machines that can cure any disease, heal any wound. In theory, this research could be a miracle cure, perhaps even a doorway to immortality. It was also the only way Dr. Kennessy could save his leukemia stricken son. But when a second corpse turns up, savagely mutilated from within, it’s anything but theoretical. Could machines created to cure have learned to kill? Scrambling for answers, Mulder and Scully are opposed at every step by faceless enemies with all the resources of the government even perhaps of their own agency at their command. Enemies who will stop at nothing to ensure that the secret of immortality falls in the right hands their hands. As sinister forces close in, Scully fights to save the life of an innocent boy while Mulder comes face to face with a crazed and desperate man. A man whose slightest touch brings agonizing death and perhaps a resurrection more horrible still.

Skin (By:Ben Mezrich)

It’s a fairly common, if ghoulish, procedure: the ‘harvesting’ of skin from corpses for temporary use on emergency burn victims until their own grafts are ready. But when a team of moonlighting medical students accidentally takes skin from the wrong donor, the results are catastrophic: a New York City hospital ward is destroyed in a psychotic bloodbath, and an elderly professor, admitted for a routine skin graft, is suddenly the city’s most wanted fugitive. Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully are the only ones to suspect something more ominous than a medical procedure gone awry. As the FBI agents investigating the ‘X Files’ strange and inexplicable cases the Bureau wants to keep hidden, Mulder and Scully are determined to track down the forces they suspect are behind the murderer. While the police hunt the fleeing professor, Mulder and Scully track the skin that was mistakenly grafted onto him. The trail leads from the morgue to the headquarters of a cutting edge biotech company. Soon Mulder and Scully are in Thailand, searching the jungles for an abandoned MASH Unit, where napalm victims were treated with an amazing recovery rate’even though none of the hundreds of men who were nursed back to health ever returned to their families. Scully is looking for an experimental medical technology with disastrous side effects. Mulder suspects the stakes are even higher, a fear gruesomely confirmed as they begin to uncover an unholy and totally deniable alliance between a battle trained plastic surgeon, international politicians, and a legendary Thai monster known as the ‘Skin Eater.’

Zombies: The Recent Dead

You can’t kill the dead! Like any good monster, the zombie has proven to be ever evolving, monumentally mutable, and open to seemingly endless imaginative interpretations: the thralls of voodoo sorcerers, George Romero’s living dead, societal symbols, dancing thrillers, viral victims, reanimated ramblers, video gaming targets, post apocalyptic permutations, shuffling sidekicks, literary mash ups, the comedic, and, yes, even the romantic. Evidently, we have an enduring hunger for this infinite onslaught of the ever hungry dead. Ho*ards of readers are now devouring zombie fiction faster than armies of the undead could chow down their brains. It’s a sick job, but somebody had to do it: explore the innumerable necrotic nightmares of the latest, greatest, most fervent devotion in the history of humankind and ferret out the best of new millenial zombie stories: Zombies: The Recent Dead.

Seize the Night

Dark Hunter: an immortal warrior who has traded his soul to Artemis for one moment of vengeance on his enemies. In return, they swear to spend eternity protecting mankind from the daimons and vampires that prey on them. Valerius isn’t a popular Dark Hunter he’s a Roman, which means that the largely Greek Hunters have a major grudge against him and his civilization for superceding them. To make things worse, he’s very conscious of his aristocratic background and breeding. So it serves him right when he runs into Tabitha Devereaux. She’s sassy, sexy, and completely unwilling to take him seriously. Not to mention Tabitha is also the sister in law of Kyrian, a former Dark Hunter and Val’s mortal enemy. What Tabitha does take seriously is hunting and killing vampires and soon she and Val have to grapple with the deadliest of all Daimons one who’s managed to come back from the dead, and one who holds a serious grudge against both of them. To win against evil, Val will have to loosen up, learn to trust, and put everything on the line to protect a man he hates and a woman who drives him nuts.
