The Nightmare Archive: A Secret History of Haunted Films

Novel

There exists a secret archive of haunted films so dangerous they can rip open the veil between worlds.

When psychology professor Jamie Burgess learns her older brother has died, she discovers he was the latest in a long line of caretakers for the Nightmare Archive…but she has no idea how to locate the secret films. Who else is hunting the archive, brutally killing innocent people to discover its secrets? How were the haunted films collected and hidden away from the world? What are the creatures Jamie glimpses that threaten to enter our world?

From the streets and cinemas of Hollywood to the mountains outside Los Angeles to the mysterious Bone Cinema, Jamie and her friends race to find the archives and keep it out of the hands of the dangerous cult seeking the power to bring about the end of the world. (Published June 12, 2020)

“ALTERNATE CUT by Edward Karpp – This, in my opinion, is the darkest of the tales in THUGGISH ITCH. Atmospheric, as it is, you should read this one alone with no other distractions. It really is a dark piece of fiction; I loved it.”
(from Amazon review by Paul Bailey)

“‘Alternate Cut’ fit the horror bill well, and is definitely worth the lengthier read. I was actually scared by the monster described in this story.” (from Amazon review by Brittany)
