How do you survive hearing your family being brutally murdered over the phone? For Father Raul Figeuroa, all faith and hope are lost. Turning away from the priesthood, he retreats to his aunt’s empty farmhouse in upstate New York, hoping to drink himself to oblivion. But he’s not alone in the house. Something is trying to reach out to him. Or is he losing his grip on reality? When his childhood friend Felix comes to visit, things take a darker turn. The deeper they dig into the mystery, the closer they get to hell literally breaking loose.
The Hunt
It’s hunting season for best friends Shay and Vito. This year, with a bad economy and Shay out of work, it’s more important than ever to bag a deer so they can feed their families. Tucking their truck in their secret spot outside a state park in the Catskills, they settle down, waiting for a deer to come to them.
What they get is a giant creature that outruns a speeding deer and savages it with its bare hands and jagged teeth. Someone hidden in the woods shoots it with a tranquilizer dart. Shay knows what the beast at their feet is, and how its discovery can change their lives forever. They load it into their truck and head home for…
The Bronx
The drugged Bigfoot awakens in a cramped shed in Shay’s backyard. Confused, terrified, angry, it breaks loose in the middle of the night, seeking refuge in a nearby cemetery. When the bagpipes of a morning funeral drive it into a killing rage, the carnage has just begun.

Misfits HUNTER SHEA v02

During the height of the 90s grunge era, five high school friends living on the fringe are driven to the breaking point. When one of their friends is brutally raped by a drunk townie, they decide to take matters into their own hands. Deep in the woods of Milbury, Connecticut, there lives the legend of the Melon Heads, a race of creatures that shun human interaction and prey on those who dare to wander down Dracula Drive. Maybe this night, one band of misfits can help the other. Or maybe some legends are meant to be feared for a reason.


Five years after Ashley King survived the infamous Resort Massacre, she’s found hanging in her basement by her fiancé, Todd Matthews. She left behind clues as to what really happened that night, clues that may reveal the identity of the killer the press has called The Wraith. With the help of his friends, Todd goes back to the crumbling Hayden Resort, a death-tinged ruin in the Catskills Mountains. What they find is a haunted history that’s been lying in wait for a fresh set of victims. The Wraith is back, and he’s nothing what they expected.

Something is in the woods, screeching in the darkness, banging on the house, leaving animals for dead.Just like her body, Kate’s cottage becomes her prison. She and Andrew must fight to survive the creature that lurks in the dead of night.

Ghost Mine coverDeep in a Wyoming mine, hell awaits. Nat Blackburn is given an offer he can’t refuse by President Teddy Roosevelt. Tales of gold in the abandoned mining town of Hecla abound. The only problem – those who go seeking their fortune never return. Along with his constant companion, Teta, a hired gun with a thirst for adventure, Nat travels to a barren land where even animals dare not tread.

    Thank you for The Forest of Shadows , So Cool !!!!

    • Hunter Shea says :

      Thank you Sharon. I’m so glad you liked it. The follow up short story, The Graveyard Speaks, is free at Amazon and Samhain. It leads right into the new book, Sinister Entity. Have fun and there’s no shame in sleeping with the lights on. 😉

  2. Melissa Gude Eastlick says :

    Just finished reading The Montauk Monster….I couldn’t put it down!! (literally…I read 95% of the book on a flight from Providence, RI to Seattle, WA) I’m begging you…PLEASE tell me the story doesn’t end there and that you are working on a sequel! Loved it! Thanks!

  3. fautus01 says :

    I finished reading “The Montauk Monster” about a week ago and I have to tell you that it is possibly one of the best written, most page turning and fun books I have ever read. A blend of horror, sci-fi and action done so well that most other authors, especially main stream authors could only hope to ever write in their career. I had not realized it was something that was real until I write of review of it on Good Reads.
    It was the kind of book that you don’t really want to end. I didn’t want to believe that Meredith and Dalton would have gotten swept up into the “clean-up” that the government was doing. It felt like it was open to interpretation and that the two of them would end up coming back, with possibly Dalton working for another small town police force, only to be swept up into it all over again.

    Anyways I just had to tell you all this. I have been telling all my friends in the horror community about it and well, I just cant say enough about it. I hope the sequel becomes a reality. So I just have to say Thank you for giving me one of the most horrifying and entertaining books I’ve read in a very, very long time.

    • Hunter Shea says :

      Wow. Thank you so much. That really means a lot. My next book with Pinnacle, called Tortures of the Damned, comes out in July. You liked Montauk Monster, so I know you’ll have a ball with that one. 🙂

  4. fautus01 says :

    I cant wait for it Hunter. I don’t read anything except comics, which I noted that you name drop a lot comic and media related things, so I hope that the upcoming books will be in paperback form. So unfortunately, your swamp monster massacre I wont be able to read. But Im totally stoked on your new things coming out. And I know I’ll have a ball with them.
    Love all the DC comics stuff mostly, what if any are you into? And what do you think of the way the movies are written and made?
    Just wondering.
    Thanks for the reply. I very much appreciate it.
    Oh and I live in Rhode Island, so I live close enough to Montauk to have a continuation of that story happen here, hehehe

  5. Laurel Heidtman says :

    I just finished Forest of Shadows a couple of days ago, but I wish I hadn’t. I had trouble putting it down, but I didn’t want it to end! And that ending–I had tears in my eyes! What a great ending!

    This is the first book of yours I’ve read. It won’t be the last and I’m really glad to see there are more with Jessica Backman.

  6. Emily says :

    Just finished Island of the Dammed. Starting Swamp Monster Massacre. Love yor books hard to stop reading.

  7. gerald carleton jr says :

  8. Christine says :

    Just finished reading Tortures of the Damned. I’ve enjoyed it so much I’m hunting down the rest of your novels.

    I’m curious. Is there a sequel planned? I

    • Hunter Shea says :

      Thanks Christine. I am mulling over a special project that would take place minutes after the end of the book, so stay tuned.

      • Charles Sands says :

        Mr. Hunter:
        Just finished Tortures of the Damned. The end bothered me. Not that I didn’t like it, it haunted me. I got so close to the characters that I was shocked, even saddened that the kids where supposedly left alone at the end; or where the kids killed by the explosion too? …and when Rey and Dakota died. The writing was so that I could feel the family’s grief. Glad to hear there might be a sequel. Looks like Montauk Monster is next, but not sure which one yet.

      • Hunter Shea says :

        Thank you, Charles. That was a tough one for me to write, and I struggled with the ending. As I said earlier, though, I am thinking of ways to extend the story.

  9. ann says :

  10. Teresa Jessie says :

    Just finished reading Tortures of The Damned. So good. Is there going to be a sequel?

    • Hunter Shea says :

      Thank you so much for reaching out to me (and reading the book!). There aren’t any plans for a sequel right now, but with all the requests I’ve been getting, the wheels are starting to turn. Stay tuned! Sign up for my newsletter to get the news first if I do decide to continue the story.

  11. Joann George-Sena says :

    Please write a sequel to Tortures of the Damned. I couldn’t put the book down. I loved it. I absolutely need to find out what happens with the kids.

  12. Valerie Modreski says :

    Hunter never ever ever disappoints. Mr. Shea brings the genre home with hit after hit. His writing is akin to so many of the greats and I am so happy his books are starting to meat the market. I can’t wait for my next. Congrats Hunter
    and keep ’em coming.

  13. Cameron Nigh says :

    Have recently discovered your books and I am enjoying them thoroughly. My wife and I love to go on “monster trips” around the U.S. looking in the towns that have local monster stories and talking with the people. The ones I am really excited for are Dover Demon and Swamp Monster Massacre. Any idea when they will be available again?

    • Hunter Shea says :

      I love that you guys take monster trips! Swamp Monster just came back in print with Severed Press. The ebook is out and print should be any day now. Dover Demon will probably be out by the fall. 🙂 Thanks for reading!

      • Cameron Nigh says :

        Thanks, I’ll look for them. So much better seeing the small town monsters than any of the “national” monuments. Managed to check off Van Meter monster, Ohio Grassman, Mothman, Lizardman, Skunk Ape and Boggy Creek monster…. Now we have to head across the northern states!

  14. Josh Etter says :

    I had never heard of you before, but was browsing the horroe section of my local bookstore and stumbled upon your section & one of my new favorite writers. I bought Loch Ness Revenge and will DEF be buying more of your books in the future. I love your style of writing and I love your concepts. So grateful to have discovered you & will be recommending you to all my friends.

  15. Jan says :

    Hey Hunter, I love your books! I have read all the novels I can find. I enjoyed them all, and I really liked the three books in the Jessica Backman series. Are you planning any additions to that line?

  16. Jesse Marie Miller says :

    Hi Mr. Hunter!

    I’ve binged on every title of yours that Amazon will sell me. As a huge fan of cryptids, the first one I read was “Loch Ness Revenge”. Killer book. Wicked fast paced and amusing and the twins are awesome. The follow up book was a nail biter and totally left me wanting more in the series. Montauk was a favorite that also begs for a sequel. The first Jessica Backman book actually scared me, and I’m a seasoned horror buff. I can’t wait to see what else you have in store for her, that book stayed with me for days creeping me out.
