Robert Duperre is offering up a pretty fantastic giveaway. One grandprize winner will get four paperbacks, and two runner-ups will win four four ebooks in a format of their choice. So what are these books up for grabs?

An ancient evil, trapped in the ruins of a lost Mayan temple for centuries, has been unleashed. It takes the form of a deadly virus that causes violent insanity in the living and the recently departed to rise and walk. The blight spreads around the globe, throwing the world into chaos and war.

Regular people are hurled into an existence outside their control, left to deal with a terror they aren’t prepared to handle. Life becomes a nightmare, and that nightmare is spreading.

THE RIFT is comprised of four books:

The Fall
Dead of Winter (available now)
Death Springs Eternal (January 2012)
The Summer Son (June 2012) 

Winter arrives, and with it the Storm. Snow piles up, turning the landscape into a white prison. The survivors of Wrathchild’s plague struggle to survive. With loneliness and doubt creeping in, they must choose: stay in isolation with their dwindling resources, or journey south, taking a chance in a realm where the undead walk.

This is the terror facing the characters in Dead of Winter, the sequel to The Fall by Robert J. Duperre. With darkness all around them and the mystery of humanity’s unraveling growing deeper each day, they must delve into their reservoir of strength to move forward.

 …Three brothers traipse across a post-apocalyptic landscape, encountering unspeakable horrors…
A young boy growing up in suburban hell thinks there might be more to his home town than meets the eye, what with all the children going missing…
…A woman dying of cancer is given a way out, if only she is willing to pay the price…
…The crew of a space station must battle their fears and a strange alien relic when they are isolated from humanity…
These stories and more await inside the pages of The Gate: 13 Dark & Odd Tales, the new compilation by Robert J. Duperre. Also contributing to this collection are the talented Mercedes M. Yardley, David Dalglish, David McAfee, and Daniel Pyle. 

In Silas, Ken Lowery is a man at odds with his life. He hates his job, is disappointed in his marriage, and feels resigned to leading a mundane existence.

That all changes when his wife brings home a rambunctious Black Labrador puppy named Silas, who forges a remarkable connection with Ken and begins to heal his inner turmoil. When some neighborhood children start to go missing, he takes it upon himself to protect those around him and is thrust into a surreal world where monsters roam. Not everything is what it seems to be, he soon discovers, including his new best friend.
