A raging snowstorm has stranded Tess and Warren in their mountain home with no power and little heat. When an accident leaves Tess coughing up pools of blood, Warren has no choice but to brave the storm in search for help.

He's afraid he'll be too late.

But what he should be afraid of are the creatures slinking through the blizzard and watching his every move.

What they're saying about Daniel Pyle:


“DISMEMBER’S a fast-paced grindhouse-movie of a book with plenty of unexpected twists and turns and a fresh new crazy for a villain. The late Richard Laymon would have been grinning ear to ear.”
—Jack Ketchum, multiple Bram Stoker Award-winning author of THE GIRL NEXT DOOR and THE WOMAN

“With DISMEMBER, Daniel Pyle joins the select group of authors who can provide real chills and genuine surprises. Taut, weird, and intriguing.”
—Jonathan Maberry, multiple Bram Stoker Award-winning author of THE KING OF PLAGUES and ROT & RUIN

“The tourniquet-tight plot and constant suspense keeps the pages flying. A solid, suspenseful thriller that enables readers to envision the movie it could become.”
—Publishers Weekly


“Pyle’s tight little monster tale packs a nasty wallop.”
—Michael Louis Calvillo, author of AS FATE WOULD HAVE IT and BLEED FOR YOU

“Horror should be fun. Scary, of course...but above all, it should be fun. Too many people seem to have forgotten that. Well, Daniel Pyle has not forgotten. With his novella, DOWN THE DRAIN, Pyle has crafted a tale that evokes all the eye-popping strangeness and excitement that got me into horror in the first place. I loved it, and I can guarantee you’ll never look at your bathtub the same again.”
