Founded by Bram Stoker Award-nominated editor Eric Miller, Big Time Books has published three acclaimed horror anthologies to date: 18 WHEELS OF HORROR, HELL COMES TO HOLLYWOOD, and HELL COMES TO HOLLYWOOD II. Miller is the maverick screenwriter of films such as MASK MAKER and the SyFy Channel’s ICE SPIDERS and SWAMP SHARK.

18 WHEELS OF HORROR features 18 horror fiction stories set in the trucking world, including the Bram Stoker Award-winning short story “Happy Joe’s Rest Stop.” Psychotic killers, devious ghosts, alien monsters, howling storms, undead creatures, and other dark forces haunt the highways and the truckers who drive them in these chilling tales. Grand Master of Horror Ray Garton (novels LOT LIZARDS and LIVE GIRLS) headlines the book along with writer/editor Del Howison (MIDIAN UNMADE, the award-winning DARK DELICACIES anthology series), Hal Bodner (bestselling author of BITE CLUB and THE TROUBLE WITH HAIRY) and 15 more professional horror writers.

Hell Comes to Hollywood Vampiric producers, ghostly actors, psychotic limousine drivers, murderous stunt men and more stalk the streets and back lots of Hollywood in the 20 original stories premiering in HELL COMES TO HOLLYWOOD. The sequel HELL COMES TO HOLLYWOOD II adds 22 more terror tales. The HELL series presents horror veterans including writer/director Anthony C. Ferrante (SHARKNADO), writer Richard Christian Matheson (MASTERS OF HORROR), actress Lin Shaye (INSIDIOUS), writer/producer Joseph Dougherty (CAST A DEADLY SPELL), writer/director C. Courtney Joyner (NEMO RISING novel, LURKING FEAR), writer Brian Domonic Muir (CRITTERS), screenwriter Shane Bitterling (REEL EVIL) and more.
