Delirium Books is gearing up for new releases in their ongoing horror novella series. Slated for an October release, BLACK MERCY FALLS by Christopher Fulbright and Angeline Hawkes was the #1 preorder bestseller at Horror Mall for the month of August. There are still copies available, but time is ticking before the book sells out. Those who prefer horror novels of the electronic variety, never fear, an eBook edition will coincide with the limited edition hardcover release.
About the book:
The small Colorado town of Black Mercy Falls has a ghastly past. The massive waterfall above the town runs thick with black iron oxide, but there are hushed suggestions that something evil is responsible for the dark waters. Whispers of the locals connect a list of missing children with a diabolical tale of the townâ€™s founding father. Is the waterfall haunted? Or is the town cursed by something that stalks its children by night?
Now the waterfall and the land itâ€™s on are bequeathed to Lance Evans by his estranged uncle. But when Lance brings his wife and son to explore the inheritance, they scarcely have a chance to marvel at its beauty and settle in to the rustic cabin than good fortune is overshadowed by tragedy. Mists of the past enshroud a dark legacy that threatens to take the lives of those he loves. Itâ€™ll take all he can do to save themâ€¦or die trying.
“Equal parts gritty and elegant, Black Mercy Falls is a tense, dark and welcome contribution to the growing fusion of crime and horror fiction. Watch outâ€”these authors just upped their game!” â€”Hank Schwaeble, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Damnable
“Fulbright and Hawkes have written a story that will swallow you up as surely as an undertow. This is great stuff. Consider it required reading for the discerning horror connoisseur.” â€”Joe McKinney, author of Dead City and Apocalypse of the Dead
