Kevin David Anderson’s NIGHT SOUNDS: From Podcast to Print
Frantic, hungry claws scraping against wood… The whining of a drill as it grinds through bone… The ravings of a lunatic amid the honking of gridlocked cars… Agonized shrieks through the phone line, followed by the rending of flesh… The hypnotic, deadly tones of a calliope on a warm summer night… When the sun goes down and darkness claims the land… When the silence descends, isolating the lonely, the desperate, the weak… These are the
you would hear, should you care to listen. And just below it, if you strain your ears, you will hear what the night sounds mask… The sounds of human suffering, the music of the night.
Night Sounds: From Podcast to Print is a collection of scary, sometimes humorous stories, mostly written for popular fiction podcasts. The book is a throwback to Anderson’s earliest fiction influences, what we now call Old Time Radio.
Available in print and for Kindle (other digital formats to follow).
Martin “Wags” Wagner, an aging catcher relegated to a minor-league affiliate of the San Francisco Giants, is offered a new assignment—take a promising young pitcher under his wing and show him the ropes. Martin’s manager is cagey about the new player, giving only his name, Andrei Dinescu, and his country of origin, Moldova. Despite the mysterious circumstances, Martin accepts the assignment, hoping to earn a return to the big leagues.
After his first bullpen session with the new pitcher, Martin is stunned by Andrei’s lack of physical ability and his unfamiliarity with baseball. However, with each passing week, Andrei’s strength and skill grow exponentially, and his miraculous leaps in both ability and pitch velocity frighten Martin. His fear is compounded by the organization’s obvious attempts to keep Andrei separated from the rest of the team.
When Martin discovers the shocking truth about Andrei Dinescu, he realizes his path back to the big leagues is one stained with horror and blood.

The Mississippi Glory Hole Mutilations
Under the burning sun of Cold Currant, Mississippi, right on the banks of the Mississippi River, sits an old antebellum farmhouse that has been passed down through the generations. The farm’s current occupants, the Tucker clan, are on the brink of losing their family’s legacy. Only, the Tuckers have been hiding a depraved, murderous secret under the very soil of the farmland they continue to work. When the vice-president of Cold Currant Savings and Loan shows up one sweltering summer afternoon to deliver their foreclosure papers, all hell breaks loose.
In the race to save their farm, Lee Tucker and his two inbred sons, Tobias and Mathias, are forced to make some terrible decisions and spill a lot of blood. But as the sun sets and the moon rises over the crops, and as their latest victim lies naked and screaming in the barn, a nightmarish chain of events begins to unfold. Will it be the end of the Tucker Blood Cult, or will their redneck living be enough to save the family farm?
