Contain's Scott's story "Kissyman & The Succubus"

Scott’s story in this collection is “Kissyman & The Succubus” — Kissyman finds himself at odds with Marie’s Children in 1948 Manhattan. A crossover between the milieu created in Scotts’s novel NOCTURNAL and his two-fisted ex-Nazi hitman antihero.


There’s something out there in the dark.

There’s always something watching.

There’s always something reaching for you.


And sometimes there’s someone you can call. Someone you can hire. Someone who knows these dark streets and back alleys. Someone who knows how things work in this part of town. Private eyes who are often as dark as the things they hunt. Investigators who know how to look in the shadows for the things that go bump. Good guys but not always nice guys.

Hardboiled Horror collects fifteen original tales of noir mystery shot through with elements of horror and the supernatural. Occult detectives, paranormal investigators, seedy P.I.s, amateur sleuths and ghost hunters tackle the cases no one else can handle.

  • Heather Graham
  • Kevin J. Anderson
  • Rachel Caine

Edited by New York Times bestseller and five-time Bram Stoker Award winner Jonathan Maberry.

    So does this mean the Hunter Hunterson story that was going to be in that anthology is no longer part of the collection, or are we going to be lucky enough to have both Kissyman *and* Hunter Hunterson?

    Now this would be a great story. Pookie Chang’s grandfather could make a guest appearance that gets so scared he moves to San Francisco, can you say (vicious cycle).
