John Everson is a staunch advocate for the culinary joys of the jalapeno and an unabashed fan of 1970s European horror cinema. He is also the Bram Stoker Award-winning author of COVENANT, SACRIFICE and seven other novels, including the creature feature spiderfest VIOLET EYES, the erotic horror Bram Stoker Award finalist NIGHTWHERE, and his latest REDEMPTION, the over-the-top conclusion to the COVENANT trilogy. Other novels include THE FAMILY TREE, THE PUMPKIN MAN, SIREN and THE 13TH. Over the past 25 years, his short stories have appeared in more than 75 magazines and anthologies. He is the founder of the independent press Dark Arts Books and has written novelettes for THE VAMPIRE DIARIES and Jonathan Maberry’s V-WARS universe (Books 1 and 3) as well as stories for THE GREEN HORNET and KOLCHAK, THE NIGHT STALKER anthologies. He has had several short fiction collections issued by independent presses, including CAGE OF BONES & OTHER DEADLY OBSESSIONS, VIGILANTES OF LOVE, NEEDLES & SINS and most recently, SACRIFICING VIRGINS, released by Samhain Publishing at the end of 2015.

My ninth novel, Redemption – the long awaited sequel to my first two novels Covenant and Sacrifice – is now available! Order your copy from Amazon.com – it is also a Kindle Select title, so available free to Kindle Unlimited subscribers! One of my my favorite horror novelists of all time, Edward Lee, read the novel at the end of December and described it like this:
“Redemption unfolds as horror-hero Joe Kieran’s finish-line sprint down the last leg of Everson’s addictive occult storyline of blood-gushing demonic machinations, cursed existential characters, and abominations incarnate. Everson is a MASTER of the hardcore; he’s the rare kind of writer who’s so good you can’t proceed with your day until the book is finished. No matter what you have planned, forget it; you won’t bother until you’ve turned the last page. (I missed a playoff game because of this book!) Everson kicks out the jambs in this gory story of haunted religious missions, mind-boggling sex-rituals, and jaunts into Hell (and let’s not forget the communal demonic toilet!) The Little Mermaid this ain’t. This is balls-to-the-wall, no-f–ing-around hardcore horror that hits the reader with the impact of a bucket of hot blood and innards in the face. Read it!”
You can’t ask for a better endorsement than that!
Yours in Dark Arts,
