Autumn 2022 From Raphus Press

Civilian by Karim Ghahwagi // Raphus Press// Autumn 2022

Set a few years in the future, the Behavioral Science department of the FBI are on the threshold of fully implementing a new technology which enables access to the memories and sensations of the human mind.

For almost a decade Simon Wakefield and his team of federal agents have developed and utilized the technology in their most challenging cases. Now they are confronted with their most perplexing case. A renowned child psychotherapist has kidnapped three of her own child trauma patients and hidden them away in an undisclosed location without food and water. She will only reveal their locations on live national television. A few hours before she is to make her grand exposé, she tries to commit suicide in her cell. Dying and unconscious, she has never revealed the secret locations of the three children.

Aberrant pathologies and new technologies collide in this short novel of science fiction and horror.

Limited to 100 hardback copies.

Some kind words about the stories:

Children of the Crimson Sun

‘One of the best stories of possession I’ve read since the Exorcist.‘

Adam Nevill, author of The Ritual and The Reddening

‘A compelling tale of amoral purpose.’

Mark Andresen- The Pan Review

Horrill Hill

‘This story-story has a gory rictus at its hyphen. And clairvoyant viscera. Its method of stylistic power only imaginable if you read it.’

D.F. Lewis- The Gestalt Real-Time Review.

‘Will stay with the reader permanently.’

Alcebiades Diniz Miguel.

The Sorrows of Satan’s Book

‘A haunting portrayal….An excellent example of cold, sea-drenched gloom.’

Dejan Ognjanovic – Rue Morgue

‘Hallucinatory ….powerful. An oblique but ultimately impressive story.’

Mark Monday

Children of the Crimson Sun


Children of the Crimson Sun

An Egaeus Press Keynote Edition

Now available

A diptych of dark, richly wrought, strange tales, exploring faith, identity, and those mysterious currents which inhabit the spaces in between them. At once psychological tales of mounting spiritual horror, and investigations into the dark fantastic.

The title novella, Children of the Crimson Sun, concerns a young medic of the Hospitaller Knights of Malta, charged with investigating an unsettling case in a local fishing village, where spiritual forces both contemporary and ancient saturate the sprawling archipelago’s villages, churches, monasteries, megalithic temples, and deep subterranean caverns.

In the second piece, A Haunting in Miniature, a village in the Moravian region of the Czech Republic is unsettled by a series of ghostly visitations. The supernatural intrusions give rise to suspicions that the region’s history has resurfaced in strange and foreboding circumstances.

The book is a lithographically printed, 192 page pocket sized sewn hardback (105mm x 165mm); limited to just 220 copies. ISBN 978-1-916465725.

Books can be purchased for 21 English pounds / 27 US Dollars / 24 Euro, including worldwide shipping Here
