"The characters are well rounded and fleshed out, and you become very invested."

"The mystery is genuinely intriguing. It moves it a tight spiral, sucking you in."

"In it's themes of child abuse and its collateral damage, this book pulls no punches. This is the first book that has ever made me wince at a page, and it does it a few times. But for all the heartache and horror, this story is really about repair. To finally let go of the past, instead of letting it trap you forever in self destructive cycles. And it is in this way that the book truly shines."

"Definitely a must read."

So what's this must read story about...

Casey Way has been haunted by visions of his dead pedophile father for the last twenty years, tormented by hazy recollections of his father's murder at the hands of his stepmother. The trauma has left Casey burdened with guilt, which has manifested in debilitating insomnia and violent hallucinations. As the anniversary of his father's murder approaches, his step-sister Mariska takes him back to the scene of the crime: their childhood home, to confront their past and finally get some closure.

Instead, something follows Casey back out into the world, something ugly, violent, familiar. It begins a vicious spiral of insanity as people around him begin disappearing and dying, hiding behind the faces of Casey's loved ones. Somehow tied to his father's murder, Casey begins digging into his fragmented memories for an answer. What he finds instead brings Casey face-to-face with his greatest fears as he struggles to end the nightmares that have haunted all of their lives.

Reprisal: Vengeance knows no boundary


"I started reading this book and within the first couple of pages I was hooked and could not stop reading it. I had to know what was going to happen next."

"My Confession #1: This book freaked me the hell out!I suggest that you don't read it late into the night and then try to fall asleep unless you like things that go bump in the night.

My Confession #2: I'm now terrified of old women! And I will never ever pick up a hitchhiker!"

"This was an entertaining and disturbing horror tale,"

"Reprisal is fast paced and fun. Reminded me of Tales From The Crypt or Erie stories that I loved as a younger reader. "

So what's this disturbing tale about...

On the surface her plan was brilliant in its simplicity. Return home, take the place of her twin sister, and live out the rest of her life in relative peace. Unfortunately even the best laid plans had their flaws and this one involved Margaret's alter ego Candice, who was hell bent on leaving a bloody trail in her wake. But not even Candice had anticipated one simple fact. 

The dead always got their revenge.

Vampires in Pimptown


"Remember when you could watch a great vampire movie and not only be scared to death but also laugh at the way most of the people became victims? Well here we go again on steroids! The town is over run with pimps and prostitutes until the vampires swoop in. They start by making everyone very afraid. Then they take the town by storm and the laughter begins. The town pimps become empowered and really mad. Not only are the girls afraid to work but the money isn't flowin'. What happens next is a sight to behold and the writing truly brings it all to life. If you like humor with vampires and pimp or just think you might this is certainly the book for you. And don't for get the other novel by James H. Lucas, An Undead Wedding."

"Loved the book! Laughed so hard on some pages that I thought I would wet my pants. Keeps you on the edge of your seat on others. Going to buy his other book!"

Before you buy his other book, what's this one about...

Welcome to Pimptown, home of the largest prostitute population on Earth, where anyone can have a good time, for a price. Now, a "family" of vampires (the ancient and powerful Amon; Portia, with her fondness for the deliciousness of youth; the man-hating Jade and Tristan, the conflicted Mormon) have cast their eyes on Pimptown. Four pimps: Spaceman (in his silver suits and girls named for constellations), Fried Gold (short on stature, big on attitude), Doctor Bigg (old school and classy), and Vanilla Luuv (white boy poser) rise to the challenge to keep their pimp hands strong and kick some bloodsuckin' ass. Also in the mix are Detectives Saurkreem and Chives, two members of Pimptown's ludicrously corrupt police force, who are trying to find who is responsible for the wave of murders in Pimptown, or at least someone who can't afford a good lawyer. All of this comes together in a comedic romp full of blood, sex and Cadillacs. So grab your gators, put on your purple suit, sharpen a stake and get ready to Bitch Slap Evil.

The Feast of Saint Anne: A Hudson Horror Story


"I loved it...as if I was being pulled into a Ray Bradbury or something like BOY'S LIFE."

Welcome back to the village of Wyvern Falls, here along the Hudson in that sleepy region with the witching influence in the air. This second novel in the 'Hudson Horror Series', 'The Feast of Saint Anne' brings you not one but four terrifying tales of the supernatural set in their yearly carnival: In "The Red Baron's Daughter" two boys get more history than they bargained for when a Fortune Teller draws them into the web of a monster with its origins in the deadly skies of the Western Front, circa 1918. Can CID detective John Easton save them from an even grimmer fate? With 'The Lonely Dancers' an upcoming band finally show up for their gig - thirty years after they were killed in a tragic accident. Will local musician Nick Carr unravel this murder mystery or is he doomed to relive their tale? The third story, "Lorenzo King and the Dunderberg Imp" takes a new spin on an old Washington Irving classic when a failing New York media hound finds himself in the worst, and deadliest, assignment of his life. But can he outwit this much nastier version of Irving's river goblin and show everyone who the King really is? And in the final tale, "Hey Dummy!" local Art Director Jim Franks and his girlfriend cross paths with what appears to be an old-fashioned vaudeville act. Only neither ventriloquist nor dummy are what they seem and the answer to their awful secret lies over sixty years in the past with a New Guinea witchdoctor... Four tales. One hair-raising novel. The Feast of Saint Anne.

Temple Wood


Set around a village deep in the Scottish Highlands, Temple Wood tells the story of Martin’s odyssey into a nightmarish world of Pagan sexual rituals and Druidic practices, whilst searching for his beloved tutor who has mysteriously disappeared.


Combining the bizarre atmosphere of the Cult-movie ‘folk-horror’ genre with the thematic weight and experimentalism of an 'art house' film, Temple Wood depicts a young man’s journey into his subconscious whereby he must come to terms with an abusive childhood and his own repressed sexuality.


Directed and written by: Ethan Race



"It’s difficult not to appreciate Temple Wood’s audacity [...] you might just find yourself feeling oddly affectionate towards this bizarre odyssey into madness, darkness and folk-horror."

"Ethan Race has created a unique film that is part horror film, part detective film, and part fantasy film [...] It’s violent, bloody, mysterious, and ultimately captivating."




"Filmed on location in beautiful Scottish locations, this micro-budget film is an independent film worth seeking out and supporting [...] intriguing viewing with scenes that amuse and sometimes disturb."

"An extremely ambitious first feature-length project for Ethan Race [...] the horror comes not from Martin’s encounters with a primeval cult, but by the exploration of the vistas inside his mind"



And now it’s time to enjoy this ambitious film…
