beware: the pumpkin man by John Everson


The Pumpkin Man
After her father’s gruesome murder, Jenn needed a place to get away from it all with some friends, to take her mind off her grief. The empty seaside cottage she inherited seemed perfect. Jenn didn’t know that the cottage held arcane secrets, mysteries long hidden and best left alone. She didn’t realize until it was too late that the old books and Ouija board she finds there really do hold great power. And it was only after her friend’s headless body was discovered that she knew the legend of the local bogeyman was no mere legend at all.

An evil has been unleashed, a terrifying figure previously only spoken of in whispers. But now the whispers will become screams. Beware…THE PUMPKIN MAN.

about the author:

John Everson
John Everson is the Bram Stoker Award-winning author of the novels Covenant (Leisure Books, 2008), Sacrifice (Leisure Books, 2009), The 13TH (Leisure Books, 2009) and Siren (Leisure Books, 2010). these novels were all issued as limited edition hardcovers. a Polish translation of Covenant was also issued by Poland's Red Horse Books as Demoniczne Przymierze in late summer 2007 and a translation of Sacrifice was issued by Poland's Replika Books as Ofiara in spring 2009.

a wide selection of his short fiction has been collected in five short story collections - Deadly Nightlusts (Blasphemous Books, 2010),Creeptych (Delirium Books, 2010),Needles & Sins (Necro Books, 2007), Vigilantes of Love (Twilight Tales, 2003) and Cage of Bones & Other Deadly Obsessions (Delirium Books, 2000).

John is also the editor of the anthologies Sins of the Sirens (Dark Arts Books, 2008) and In Delirium II (Delirium Books, 2007) and co-editor of the Spooks! ghost story anthology (Twilight Tales, 2004). in 2006, he co-founded Dark Arts Books to produce trade paperback collections spotlighting the cutting edge work of some of the best authors working in short dark fantasy fiction today.

John shares a deep purple den in Naperville, Illinois with a cockatoo and cockatiel, a disparate collection of fake skulls, twisted skeletal fairies, Alan Clark illustrations and a large stuffed Eeyore. there's also a mounted Chinese fowling spider named Stoker courtesy of fellow horror author Charlee Jacob, an ever-growing shelf of custom mix CDs and an acoustic guitar that he can't really play but that his son likes to hear him beat on anyway. sometimes his wife is surprised to find him shuffling through more public areas of the house, but it's usually only to brew another cup of coffee. in order to avoid the onerous task of writing, he records pop-rock songs in a hidden home studio, experiments with the insatiable culinary joys of the jalapeno, designs book covers for a variety of small presses, loses hours in expanding an array of gardens and chases frequent excursions into the bizarre visual headspace of '70s euro-horror DVDs with a shot of Makers Mark and a tall glass of Newcastle.

John's books can be purchased at Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Smashwords. for more information on his fiction, art and music, please visit John Everson: Dark Arts at www.johneverson.com, his author page at Goodreads and MySpace at www.myspace.com/johneverson.
