Pentacle is a perfect example of how a horror story can be fear inducing without having to resort to cheap literary equivalents of jump scares.

From the Author
A couple of years back in BROKEN SIGIL I wrote about a very strange house in New York. Pentacle is about another of these houses, following the same rules, but with a different set of problems that the concierge needs to solve. It's set in Edinburgh, and features the return in the present day of an Electric Pentacle that some of you might recognize if you've been paying attention.
It's a story that features many of the things I love - it's got deep Scottish history, a supernatural element, a link to Victorian occult detection, some guitar playing and singing, and Edinburgh, possibly my favorite place on the planet. What's not to like?
Something has disturbed the quiet reflection in an old building. A creature has slipped through, sniffling and snuffling in all the dark places, disrupting the balance of time and space. And it's John's job to fix it... by any means necessary.
