Following the announcement of the title of his forthcoming novel on the Pint O’ Comics radio show January 20, horror author Isaac Thorne has released the first trailer for The Gordon Place. He expects to release the novel on Amazon and at other book retailers sometime in the early spring of 2019.
“The Gordon Place is the culmination of several months of work on my part and on the part of a group of beta readers whose assistance I enlisted,” Isaac says. “I’m looking forward to making it available to readers. Unlike my short tales of dark comic horror, this book is quite a bit more personal for me as a man who grew up in the American South in the 1970s and 1980s.”
The story is centered around Graham Gordon, the newly elected constable of a small town in Tennessee known as Lost Hollow. The constable returns to his abandoned childhood home to investigate screams that have been reported by local kids as having come from inside its walls. In the process, he becomes embroiled in a battle between past and present that has potentially catastrophic results.
Veteran readers of Isaac’s work might recognize the town as the location of the cemetery in which his caretaker Diggum from the eponymous short story went about his desecrations of the dead. Isaac says readers need not be familiar with Diggum or any other previous work to enjoy Lost Hollow.
“Although the town and its surroundings are a figment of my imagination, the situations and personalities that have influenced the constable throughout his life are very much rooted in the reality of the culture at the time,” he adds. “Anyone who grew up in a small town might recognize some of their neighbors and some of themselves within these pages.”
