More About the Author


I was 12 when I started to caddie at Midlothian Country Club, south of Chicago, Illinois. At 16 I was promoted to caddie master. Today I still consider that job the most demanding one I ever had. After graduating from Saint Louis University, I served with the first Peace Corps Volunteers in Ethiopia before becoming a novelist and college administrator. I've written over twenty books of fiction and nonfiction, and edited three books on golf instruction. However, this is my first novel about golf, my lifelong passion.

Format: Paperback
The story of a young, confused girl and her sacreligious struggles with the Stigmata and her budding sexuality. This is an excellent book if you enjoy deep, psychological horror relating to Catholicism and its beliefs. I owned a copy of this in the very early 1980s and have only seen it once since then. The recent movie "Stigmata" echoes certain situations I read of in this book, though it's not quite the same throughout... all in all a very intense read. I highly recommend it if you can find it - it's out of print. :(

A tale of lust, a tale of temptation, a tale of sacrifice and prayer and torment - John Coyne offers a story of a young girl afflicted with the stigmata: the wounds and actions of Christ suffered at the Crucifixion, and her interactions with Father Stephen Kinsella.

As someone new to the e-reader market, I came across this title during the Lenten season, hoping for something to invigorate both my imagination and give me some old-time religion. With every page, I wanted more. I'm thankful for NECON Classic Horror for saving this great book and bringing it back into publication so I could get the chance to read it.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
NOTHING HURTS WORSE THAN PERFECT LOVE

Betty Sue is a nationwide sensation. What happens to her unwilling body once a week, every week, is haunting, horrifying... and fascinating to millions.

The TV says it's a miracle. The Church says it's a fake. Both are wrong. Only a priest tormented by lust, who is willing to trade body for soul, can penetrate the unholy secret of The Piercing...
