Brand New Chapbook: Music of the Moldering

From Tallhat Press, with a gorgeous cover and nine creepy interior illustrations by Yves Tourigny, comes my newest chapbook Music of the Moldering. This is a limited edition book, and it's going fast.

Strange things are afoot at the James S. Fresser Funeral Home. The new owner, Marcus Walther, has let things slip. Is it the exhaustion? The burden of responsibility? Or is it the old radio he found in the woods, the one that plays the strange, unsettling programming he remembers from his teenage years, preying on his vulnerabilities? His older sister Susie is flying in to help him get caught up. She thinks she’ll be balancing the books and paying the creditors. What she’ll discover there behind those silent walls, in those shadowed rooms that echo with grief, may be the end of her…and the beginning of a horror that will spread beyond Leeds to infect the world.

You’re listening to WXXT…the crooning from the tomb, the doom in the embalming room…the howl from the bowel of the Pioneer Valley.
