ELDERWOOD MANOR by Christopher Fulbright and Angeline Hawkes, 2014, DarkFuse. Cover art by Zach McCain.

Our new horror novella from DarkFuse, ELDERWOOD MANOR is now available in limited hardcover and Kindle editions. We set out to write a story that evoked a genuine sense of fear, and, judging by the buzz, it seems people are “getting it.”  Here are just a few snippets from recent reviews:

  • “Dark and atmospheric horror … very scary.”
    —The Examiner
  • “It is very rare for something to truly scare or creep me out, but this did it.”
    The Arched Doorway
  • “ELDERWOOD MANOR was one of the few novellas I read this year that really managed to creep me out.”
    I Heart Reading
  • “From a graceful, foreboding opening, the tension is ratcheted up and the suspense is kept at the perfect pitch. This book kept me wide-eyed from beginning to end.”
    Coffee and Book Addict.com
  • “Fulbright and Hawkes bring this tale to life with some fine writing, a brooding sense of overpowering doom, a nice pace … another fine addition to their body of work.”
    —James Reasoner, Rough Edges
  • “Striking touches of originality … it engendered a shudder or two.”
    Black Static Magazine #41
  • “If you are looking for something that keeps you turning the pages quickly and that will creep you out in many ways, I highly recommend this.”

Early Reviews for ELDERWOOD MANOR

Early Reviews for ELDERWOOD MANOR

Some nice reviews are starting to roll in for our upcoming novella from DarkFuse, ELDERWOOD MANOR.

“A very dark and atmospheric horror novella with strong undertones of H.P. Lovecraft. The story took me back to the way horror was approached a long time ago … there is evil here. Everyone knows that it is there. The problem is that no one, either in the story or the reader, seems to know exactly what that evil is. This makes it even more frightening and is a subtlety often missing from modern horror … very scary.” —Josef Hernandez for The Examiner

“This short novella is packed to the brim with great atmosphere, strange creatures, and wall-to-wall scares.” —Nick Cato, editor of The Horror Fiction Review

“If you are looking for something that keeps you turning the pages quickly and that will creep you out in many ways, I highly recommend this.” —On Top Down Under Book Reviews

THE DEVIL BEHIND ME by Christopher Fulbright and Angeline Hawkes

Books_DEVILBEHINDME_300We’re excited to announce that our new novella, THE DEVIL BEHIND ME, is now available as a Dark Regions Digital exclusive, just in time for the holidays.

About the book: Alex Brandt’s life is the stuff of lore and legend, but not the fairytale one would welcome. The sole survivor of the Krampusnacht Massacre, Alex was shipped away to America on the heels of tragedy. Childhood trauma followed him to an adulthood plagued with fear and self-doubt. The horror of his past affects him so deeply each holiday season that his girlfriend urges him to resolve his issues once and for all.

Seeking closure to the Christmas tragedy, with the help of his uncle and a retired German police officer, Alex returns to the scene of the crime in Bavaria. But what lurks in the Alpine darkness on the snow-swept mountain slopes knows Alex has come back, and it’s seeking some closure of its own…
