All serious fiction deals to some extent with dark themes and many great works of literature have employed supernatural, surreal or existentialist elements. These books have power. They endure because they appeal to serious readers and provide thoughtful entertainment. On the current publishing scene, however, dark novels of distinction often find themselves unwelcome … and uninvited. UNINVITED BOOKS is an independent press dedicated to celebrating literary distinction in dark fiction.

THE PRESS about

WILLY by Robert Dunbar

“A fine read … unique … highly recommended.”

MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW

        “Profound … honest and authentic … a journey of healing with darkness and horror both as a backdrop and a catalyst.”

The Reading Review

        “One of the most powerful and compelling books I have ever read. In a genre-busting tour de force, Dunbar has redefined the beauty of dark literature, the effect it can have on you and what it can accomplish.”

Literary Mayhem

        “A novel about redemption. For those who long for intelligently written dark fiction that penetrates deeply into a reader’s psyche, Dunbar delivers superbly. It just doesn’t get any better than this.”

Horror World

        “Disturbing and poignant. Dunbar’s grasp of the human experience is heart-piercing, and he clearly understands these lost souls.”

Layers of Thought

“Magnificent! This harrowing novel transcends genre.”

BRANDON FORD BIOGRAPHY

Brandon Ford (b. August 28, 1981) grew up in South Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He started writing at the approximate age of 8 and spent a lot of time testing the waters with various genres. He wrote dramas, comedies, essays, plays, and, of course, thrillers. There were few things he took pleasure in crafting more than a good old-fashioned scary story. Throughout grade school, as well as high school, he continued to build his portfolio with various works (mostly short stories and novellas, but a few plays here and there). He’d pass around these manuscripts to friends and teachers for feedback. Knowing others enjoyed his work and craved more inspired him to keep going.

A few months shy of 23, he sat down to pen his first novel, which became Crystal Bay. Arctic Wolf Publishing, a small press based in Georgia, picked the book up a few years later. Shortly thereafter, he completed Splattered Beauty, an ode to his favorite Scream Queens. In 2009, he teamed up with Alan Draven and Jessica Lynne Gardner for Creeping Shadows (Pixie Dust Press), a collection of three short novels. Ford’s contribution, Merciless, was heavily inspired by a real-life kidnapping that took place in California in 2002. In March 2010, Arctic Wolf released his third novel, Pay Phone. Ford has also contributed works of short fiction to several anthologies, including Abaculus 2007 and Abaculus III (Leucrota Press), Sinister Landscapes (Pixie Dust Press), Raw: Brutality As Art (Snuff Books), and The Death Panel (Comet Press). Some of his biggest influences have been writers like Jack Ketchum and the late Richard Laymon. In his spare time he enjoys reading, watching bad TV, and all things horror. He still resides in
South Philadelphia.
