Editorial Reviews


"Behold the Blackwater Val, a riverside hamlet of healing and of retribution, a setting filled with dark secrets, mysticism, ghosts, and malevolent terrors. Behold Blackwater Val, William Gorman's debut novel that captures all this valley's chills and wonders in a wide-sweeping arc, which is as vast as the depth of ill-ease it plumbs."-Eric J. Guignard, winner of the Bram Stoker Award and finalist for the International Thriller Writers Award "

There are some things worse than curses ... Like never having discovered Wiliam Gorman. Dark, lyrical and genuinely disturbing, Blackwater Val is a must read for any fan of dark fiction." - Theresa Derwin

"Bringing you Horror, SF and Urban Fantasy since - her last cup of coffee" #QuantumCorsets A slow burn with sudden flashes of heat, Blackwater Val is a marathon march of fear that brings you in, holds you close and then, without warning, traps you, its grip frightening, dangerous and inescapable. - Jonathan Winn, Eidolon Avenue: The First Feast, Martuk...the Holy, Martuk...the Holy: Proseuche

"Blackwater Val is a contemporary horror novel that pays homage to the best work by the masters of the genre. The novel is rich in characterization, plot development, and the action is explosive. With one of the best endings in a horror novel that I've read in ages, Blackwater Val has leapt to the top spot in my favorite reads in 2016." - Tony Tremblay, Horror World. "

It's hard to believe BLACKWATER VAL is William Gorman's first published novel. It is written with a sure hand, clear prose, palpable emotion, and pitch-perfect suspense. The life of a small town is created beautifully, and the characters diverse and intriguing. Reverend Julian is a truly nasty villain, and the finale at Jasper Park is thrilling. Crystal Lake Publishing has another winner on their hands here." - Mark Allan Gunnells, author of FLOWERS IN A DUMPSTER and FORT

From the Author

My first book, Ghost Whispers, was a collection of hauntings and spooky legends from my home town. With that one, I spent a lot of time in overgrown cemeteries, searching for a particular headstone or epitaph, and poring over burial records and eyewitness accounts for hours on end. But with Blackwater Val, we're journeying into the darkest malignant regions imaginable. There's witchcraft here, and the walking dead all around...and a little girl who can see it all: visions of God, Satan, Heaven and Hell. Lost spirits wander here, too -- they come out of the night-fog to warn us, and to destroy -- along with a demonic presence, one of Lucifer's doomed, fallen companions. If unspeakable horror coupled with a taste of dread is your dish of choice, then Val will surely whet your appetite.
