It was originally to be published by UK's Humdrumming Press, but days before publication the independent publisher filed for bankruptcy and shut down. Ouch. Advanced reviews surfaced, one in particular from Norm Rubenstein, which aided in a new deal with Bloodletting Press, under the Arcane Wisdom imprint. I listened to Norm's praise for the book in a segment of Pod of Horror's podcast #54.
What put me officially on the hunt for the this book, however, is the setting of Atlantic Canada. In a small coastal town, a husband and wife of more than thirty years are devastated by the wife's diagnosis of breast cancer. After her untimely death, grief and torment send the husband into seclusion in their old house, which awakens a malevolent spirit. All the while, his neighbors and long-time friends bear witness to his psychological descent and some of the strange happenings that occur on the property.
It's a limited release, which puts a dampener on my chances of getting it, but it sounds so promising I wouldn't be surprised to see a mass-market release at some point. One way or another, I'm sure I'll get a chance to read this story.
Is anyone else eager to get their hands on this one? Have you managed to read it already?
