Headless: Available Now!


My new book, Headless, is out now!

In the midst of a heat wave punctuated by frequent rainstorms, people are losing their heads. Literally. Not only that, but their bodies are still walking, and attacking others.

And to make matters worse, tiny, translucent, maggot-sized worms are falling from the skies like hail.

As uncanny violence threatens to take over the city, Linzy, Carter, and Joanna become fast friends and leave for points unknown, hoping to stay alive, hoping to outrun the Headless.

Since the book was first announced, I've gotten a handful of very nice blurbs from some incredible authors, as evidenced by the update to the cover above. Here's what people have been saying:

“Cole masterfully weaves gore, horror, and aliens, all while providing realistic characters. Absurd, bizarre, and oftentimes funny, Headless is a winner.”
— Daniel J. Volpe, author of Talia and Plastic Monsters

“In the glorious tradition of Night of the Creeps and James Gunn’s Slither, Headless is a midnight movie cult classic waiting to happen. With this bloody good time of a tome, Scott Cole shows he’s in the business of blowing minds.”
— Bryan Smith, author of Depraved and 68 Kill

“I’m split on when’s the best time to imbibe Headless. Whether it’s on an empty stomach, or a full one, your intestinal fortitude is so screwed. Scott Cole takes nausea and turns it into an art form.”
— Clay McLeod Chapman, author of What Kind of Mother and Ghost Eaters

“An insane premise firing on all cylinders—gory, nihilistic, and sometimes hilarious, Headless scratches the itch of those joyous late night scary movies watched with a disbelieving gasp.”
— Laurel Hightower, author of Below and Crossroads

If you're a fan of splatterpunk and cosmic horror, this may be just the thing for you. Headless is available now in paperback and ebook.
