NIGHT LIFE, a brilliant sequel to the classic novel of vampires re-imagined--LIVE GIRLS When Ray Garton’s LIVE GIRLS was published in 1987, it changed the face of vampire fiction.

In NIGHT LIFE, nearly two decades after battling the vampires of the Midnight Club in New York City, Davey is a marked man. He lives a quiet life in Los Angeles with the love of his life, Casey Thorne. The vampires he did not destroy back then have been hunting him ever since, eager to take their revenge–and now they have found him.

Something dark and sinister is spreading through the California town of Big Rock. Something more brutal and animalistic than normally lurks in the shadows of our daily lives. And, its numbers are growing exponentially. Werewolves have arrived like an epidemic. This time, though, the outbreak is careful, planned by the hungry monsters themselves. This time, the werewolves have dug their claws in deep and continue to grow ever more powerful. As the infection transfers through grisly violence and horrific sex, the entire town transforms into either starved predator or terrified prey. This time, there's no escape. Can the remaining band of humans fight back? Are there enough left to stop the trail of terror? Were there ever enough? This gut-wrenching follow-up to RAVENOUS by Grand Master of Horror Ray Garton will have you too scared to turn the page...or too scared to stop, if only to seek refuge in its shocking end. "Garton has a flair for taking veteran horror themes and twisting them to evocative or entertaining effect." —Publishers Weekly “Ray Garton has consistently created some of the best horror ever set to print.” —Cemetery Dance

Lot lizards by Ray Garton( Book )
4 editions published between 1991 and 2014 in English and held by 75 libraries worldwide
A “lot lizard” is a female hooker who works a highway truck stop as her territory. When trucker Bill Ketter looks for a little relaxation and release, he discovers, too late, that he has bitten off more than he can chew. In fact, his lot lizard is the one that does the biting--she is a vampire, one of number who move from one truck stop to the next under the watchful and vicious eyes of the repulsive Carsey Brothers. Against his will, Bill becomes one of the undead. He follows the brothers and their cargo to another stop where he meets his ex-wife and children and Bill finds himself battling the vampires and their age-old leader for the life of his teenaged son. Garton has created another small masterpiece, contemporary adult horror at its most gruesome and loaded with extras doses of sex and gore. The confined setting creates a perfect claustrophobic stage for the story and the hellaciously quick pace never lets the action slow down
Crucifax by Ray Garton( Book )
13 editions published between 1988 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 64 libraries worldwide
Originally published in 1988, Ray Garton’s fourth novel, following not long after his award-nominated LIVE GIRLS, is regarded as a classic of the “splatterpunk” movement in horror fiction. Garton has a way with teenage boredom, atmospheric small-town isolation, incest, drug abuse and over-the-top violence and he has managed to create a modern re-make of the story of the Pied Piper with a sinister character, Mace (who wears a "crucifax" around his neck--a crucifix with an ax-like blade on it) appearing on the scene, seducing mixed-up kids with his siren song of pleasure, power and indulgence, all leading to a horrifically unsettling climax of death and destruction. And then there are the rat-like things that do the piper’s bidding&hellip
Sex and violence in Hollywood by Ray Garton( Book )
3 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in English and held by 55 libraries worldwide
This breakout thriller by the master of horror was previously released only as an oversized Subterranean Press hardcover edition. Sex and Violence in Hollywood will take its place on the shelf next to other Garton classics like Live Girls and The New Neighbor. This blockbuster is a chilling combination of thrills, terror, and black humor, plot reversals and a climax so shocking that it will leave you shaken. Adam Julian, son of a Hollywood screenwriter, has a life many would kill for... and some would kill to keep. He's tangled in a web of forced sex, coerced into robbery, and it’s only a short step to killing as a choice. At the center of the book is a sensational murder trial which oddly resembles the O.J. Simpson case. The cast features an abrasive, star-struck female judge, blundering prosecuting attorneys, a nerdy defendant who reserves his right to silence, and Rona Horowitz, a pint-sized, ball-of-fire of a defense lawyer. The defendant may be guilty, but energetic Rona tries one outrageous legal stunt after another in order to exonerate her client. Drenched in the glamour, and the sleaze, of highline and lowlife Hollywood, this satirical and entertaining look at the criminal justice system, turned inside out and upside down by showbiz at its best and worst, is a panorama of crime, corruption and violence delivered with grim authenticity and hilarious awfulness
