The novel is now in official release, and I'm pleased to report to one and all that it's a must-read.
In fact, fans of “Dark Shadows”, “Kolchak” and "Twin Peaks" are sure to relish the darkly exquisite yarn, where investigative mystery and weird wonderment merge. There’s something for every horror fan here, in a decades-hopping stretch that includes a mad mortician, an eerie inn, mutant terrors and occult occurrences that would make Lovecraft cringe. Temples presents it all in a crisp, no-nonsense style that grips one by the throat and keeps one yearning for more, with characters both disturbing and identifiable.
Let’s hope the novel is the first in a long string of such creepy visitations. Indeed, Helltown is the sort of off-kilter place that demands exploration.
