NTD books feature science fiction, fantasy, dark fantasy, supernatural horror (especially vampire), and adventure. NTD has branched into publishing novels two years ago, and tries to blend a hybrid of horror and science fiction with its work. NTD publishes about six books a year. Query before sending any work. You can find excerpts, reviews and other information on the NTD authors and their works on the following pages. Coffee Time Romance has done a lot of reviews for NTD books.


The Litter: They kept to the shadows so no one would know they existed, and preyed on the nameless who no one would miss. Where did they come from, and who was protecting them? In a city that had seen every kind of savagery, they were something new, something more than murderous. And one woman who had thought she had lost everything there was to lose in life would soon find that nothing could possibly prepare her for what would come when she entered their world.

Discarded Treasures brings you twenty-five dreadful shades of the dead, designed to provide you a horror fix at lunch, on a break, between classes, or perhaps a good scare to help you sleep. Visit an avant-garde art gallery where a new artist’s work will catch your eye; step into the morgue if you dare where “Ophelia” lies naked on a chilled stainless steel table awaiting her autopsy; stroll after hours through a dimly lit, exotic entomology exhibit of rare insects that are not from your neighborhood; visit a burned out cathedral or stop in a town preparing for a revival where both provide an opportunity to repent. Spend time with that relative who makes your skin crawl. Discarded Treasures takes you into dilapidated Victorians and on a walk through a park where a mother and child may be in danger by whatever is rustling the bushes. Of course when all is said and done, be a Samaritan and pick up the hitchhiker on the roadside up ahead while you head for home. Please, indulge yourself with Discarded Treasures, my friends; you have nothing to lose but your sanity, or your life.

  1. Night to Dawn 26 – Of the poems I liked Marc Shapiro’s Bad Food the best. Great imagery. In terms of art, nice take on the four horsemen by Denny Marshall on page 58. The short story Thunder Bay by Robin Wyatt Dunn I found rich in macabre symbolism. Glad to be part of this issue.

  2. Night to Dawn 24 Oct. 2013. Thanks for your inclusion of Brother, Can You Spare Some Blood? Hopefully it will go down well with readers. Strangely enough, it was my shot at a warped out vamp love story.

    The nastiest and therefore the best poem was Hanks’ Vampire Winter. Since I’m just getting out of winter I can relate. Spring hasn’t quite sprung in Sydney, Australia.

    The Infernal Buddha sounds pretty good. I haven’t read a Doc Savage novel in some time.

    Nice portrait of Poe on page 49 by Denny Marshall.

    The Steel Rose teaser was a good idea.

    Art work by Denny Marshall on page 77 is kinda freaked out but ultimately an interesting take on the vampire as demon or the demon with vampire tendencies.

    1. No, it was an oversight. That said, I think highly of Lee and Denny’s work. I’ve been blessed with great writers and illustrators.
