Editorial Reviews


"Gilchrist was a hell of a novel... Galacar's town of Gilchrist creeps me out more than King's Derry ever did. And that ending? Perfect." - Sci-Fi & Scary

"Christian Galacar wrote a story that reminded me of some of Stephen King's earlier works, such as "It" and "Christine"and not to mention "The Stand"." - Mark, Amazon Reviewer

"An ancient darkness revels in its influence over a small town. There is no waiting for the action to begin; murder and mayhem are long term bedfellows of Gilchrist, the Derry of Massachusetts. Small town horror story fans, this is your new gem." - Lena, Amazon Reviewer

Very well written, intelligent horror story. The kind of horror that sneaks up slowly and ratchets up the apprehension bit by bit. Reminiscent of Stephen King, this author gives life to a variety of characters, and draws their personalities with skill: in the space of a few pages you KNOW these people." - Amazon Reviewer

"This book infects you and takes you on a precarious joy ride of building dread. The plot is incredible and the characters are real. The ending is perfect. I loved this book!"- Amazon Reviewer

pulls together a cast of small-town characters that are so real, I caught myself feeling sympathetic for even the most heinous character. There are no obvious, infallible "heroes" in this story, only flawed people who must rise to the occasion, even if they have to claw their way there. The story starts out feeling more like several stories told at once, but the underlying dread within each weaves everything together into a perfect web by the end. In a style reminiscent of some of the most popular horror writers, Galacar very carefully combines the fears of real life with the terrors of the supernatural. The result is beautifully unsettling. He pulls no punches when things get bad, but you still can't look away. The story is at times terrifying and at others comforting, just like the intangible monsters in the town of Gilchrist." - Stefanie B., Line Editor, Red Adept Editing
