Day 14 of #31AuthorsofHalloween – John Bowen

When it comes to books with haunted houses, with a secret behind it, it makes me giddy. John Bowen is a genius with the Where the Dead Walk series.

Synopsis for Where the Dead Walk

For some, ghosts are no more than the wounds loved ones leave in their wake, haunting the living only with their absence. Others take a more literal view . . .

Kate Bennett, presenter of paranormal investigation cable TV show, ‘Where the Dead Walk’, isn’t sure what she believes, other than she seems cursed to lose all those closest to her.

After investigating a neglected cliff-top house, empty for a decade because it’s ‘haunted’, Kate in convinced a spirit within holds the answers to a childhood she can’t remember and an unimaginable crime.

What she can’t know is that the house’s owner, Sebastian Dahl, is searching for something too, and he intends to get it, whatever the cost.

John Bowen is a multi-genre author who has a collection of books. Everything from short stories to murder mysteries.

Day 23 of #31AuthorsofHalloween – H. P. Lovecraft

If you love short stories with thrill and suspense, and you haven’t even read a story by H. P. Lovecraft, I recommend that you do it NOW. You cannot have a horror/thriller/suspense collection without having H. P. Lovecraft in the mix.

Stories such as The Evil Clergyman and The Picture in the house, will leave you in awe, as well as thinking of “what the heck just happened?” The thing with his stories, is, yes, they are short, but he builds you up, and leaves you there at the end of the climax. There is no coming down from it from any other stories you have read.

Written between 1898 and 1936, he has many stories that will make your head spin so fast, that you would think it would fall off. No matter what era stories are written, they all feel like they were ahead of their time. It is just as scary as the present stories out there that flood your bookcases and ereaders.
