Bag of Bones meets Stranger Things. . .
Gilchrist is as beautiful as it is terrifying — a novel of mounting suspense, with an unsettlingly human heart at its core. . . black as it may be.
Two years after losing their infant son to a tragic accident, Peter Martell, a novelist with a peculiar knack for finding lost things, and his wife, Sylvia, are devastated to learn they may no longer be able to have children. In need of a fresh start, and compelled by strange dreams, the couple decide to rent a lake house in the idyllic town of Gilchrist, Massachusetts, a place where bad things might just happen for a reason. As bizarre events begin to unfold around them—a chance encounter with a gifted six-year-old boy, a series of violent deaths, and repeated sightings of a strange creature with a terrifying nature—Peter and Sylvia find themselves drawn into the chaos and soon discover that coming to Gilchrist may not have been their decision at all.
Set against a small New England town in the summer of 1966, Gilchrist is a sinister tale about the haunting origins of violence, evil, and the undying power of memory.

How far would you go to protect your own?

Meanwhile, Kara Price stumbles home through the woods, raped and beaten, her life shattered by a wicked act of violence.

Blackwater is a collection of two tales of horror and dark science fiction.
In "Mercury Rain" a soldier fighting a new enemy in a post-apocalyptic world learns the importance of holding on to his memories.
"Blackwater," the title story of the collection, is an homage to Stephen King's short story "Graveyard Shift," and it tells the tale of Paul Hawkins, a mine worker who disturbs something terrifying in the Blackwater Hills of Durham, Pennsylvania, in the summer of 1976.
When Charlie Wall finds himself in over his head at an underground casino, he is offered a choice to settle his debt that could change his life forever.
Sometimes the wheel of life doesn't spin in your favor, and sometimes there's nothing you can do about it. Brian Lethando knows this firsthand. His mother left him when he was only two years old, and his father died shortly after of a heroin overdose. Twenty years later, when the woman who took Brian in and raised him as her own son begins to suffer the effects of Alzheimer's, the two of them set out on one last road trip to discover the true meaning of the word 'family.'
