Editorial Reviews


THE 13TH features a creepy, gothic setting, disturbing kill scenes, gallons of blood, plenty of thrills, and writing that's more addictive than crack. --The Horror Fiction Review

The 13th will keep you turning from the first blood soaked page until the very last. This is Rosemary's Baby times 13!!

Those who dare to venture past the first page should not be surprised to find hardcore horror within....The 13th is not for the faint of heart. --Dark Scribe Magazine, August 2009

The 13th is John Everson's third novel and, I think, his best so far. He has written some of his most gruesome prose in this book. His writing is crisp and clean. He fleshes out a wide variety of characters from the population of Castle Rock. If you like a frightening and bloody (very bloody!) supernatural mystery, pick up The 13th. --Monster Librarian, October 2009

From the Back Cover

A double-barreled shotgun blast of macabre entertainment. The 13th is an expert amalgamation of grotesquerie, eroticism, mystery, and pitch-black occult horror that no fan of the genre can miss.
-Edward Lee, author of Brides of the Impaler and The Golem

Reading The 13th is like taking the fast lane straight to hell. One frighteningly wicked trip.
-JA Konrath, author of Whiskey Sour

From its subtly metaphoric opening line to its shattering final sequence (I'm talking the kind of ending that only the best horror/dark fantasy writers can pull off, the kind of ending that makes the finale of Pet Sematary look almost like a Bugs Bunny cartoon), John Everson's The 13th is the first out-and-out horror novel in a long while to actually scare the **** out of me while reading it. It's stylish, extremely well-written, filled with richly-drawn characterizations, and boasts a labyrinthine plot worthy of Umberto Eco. Trust me -- this one will fry your nerves and break your heart.
- 5-time Bram Stoker Award-winner Gary A. Braunbeck, author of Coffin County and Far Dark Fields

Dark, warped and twisted in all the right ways, The 13th is a Laymon-esque caper that combines demonic worship, sadistic rites, terrifying sex magick, and a frightening glimpse of ultimate evil. All this, and John Everson also manages to squeeze in a creepy old hotel, wicked bad guys, and a heaping helping of black humor. It's a potent mix that's sure to please horror fans of all stripes.
-W.D. Gagliani, Author of Wolf's Trap and Wolf's Gambit

John Everson's The 13th is one of the creepiest and most compelling novels I've read in years. It's a brand new genre: 21st Century Gothic that has smarts and scares in equal measures.
-Jonathan Maberry, multiple Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Patient Zero and The Wolfman.

John Everson paves a smooth, swift road to Satanic horror in The 13th. Pages keep flipping as the darkness growing at the heart of Castle Point consumes both characters and the reader, leading to a thrilling climax in which both doom and salvation depend on sacrifice. The 13th is a terrifying drop into the mouth of hell that will leave you wanting more from this hot writer.
-Gerard Houarner, Author of Blood of Killers and Road From Hell
