Lost Hollow constable Graham Gordon just walked into his abandoned childhood home for the first time in twenty years. Local teenagers have been spreading rumors about disembodied screams coming from inside. Now, thanks to a rickety set of cellar stairs and the hateful spirit of his dead father, he might never escape.


Meanwhile, Channel 6 News feature reporter Afia Afton—whose father is the victim of a local decades-old hate crime—is meeting with town administrator Patsy Blankenship. Her mission is to develop a ghost story feature for a special to air on the station's Halloween broadcast. When Patsy tells her about the screams at the Gordon place, the past and the present are set on a collision course with potentially catastrophic results.


Can Graham come to terms with his father’s past and redeem his own future? Can the murder mystery that has haunted Afia for most of her life finally be solved?


It’s a fight for the future and the past when spirit and flesh wage war at the Gordon place.

Originally conceived in 1973 by Jason Dark and still going strong, the "John Sinclair" novellas are firmly rooted in the finest pulp traditions: true page turners with spine-tingling suspense, exquisite gore, and a dash of adventure.

For fans of the dark visions of Stephen King, Clive Barker and the "X-Files" and the fast-paced action and globe-trotting excitement of James Bond.

"John Sinclair" is the reboot of Europe's longest running horror series. Originally conceived in 1973 and still running strong, the "John Sinclair" novellas are firmly rooted in the finest pulp tradition, true page turners with hair-rising tension, exquisite gore, and a dash of adventure. "John Sinclair" combines the dark visions of Stephen King, Clive Barker, and the "X-Files" with the fast-paced action and globe-trotting excitement of James Bond. "A hero so suave and dashing, he makes James Bond look like a grubby detective sergeant, a plot that reads like it came straight from the great vaults of Hammer, and enough action and derring do to keep even the most ardent pulp fan smiling with glee ...

 It's easy to tell yourself there's no such thing as ghosts, at least until you meet one face-to-face. Then it becomes a matter of convincing yourself that you are not seeing what you think you are seeing. If you happen to be Jake, a barely school age child who awakens one night to find an elongated abomination in female form floating by his bedside, there is no amount of daylight or parental soothing that can convince you that ghosts are not real.

 

The apparition arrives at a crucial time in Jake’s family life, just when he’s beginning to notice that his mommy and his daddy aren’t getting along the way they once did. Daddy seems particularly stressed about his job at the hospital, which seems to be making him tired and nearly always irritable.

 

His new visitor, the start of the school year, and the tension between his parents start to take their toll on Jake as he searches for a way to rid himself of at least one of his triad of problems. His schooling is required by law. His parents don’t seem to be interested in continuing to get along. That leaves Jake with only one option. Can he determine what the ghost wants and send her on her way back to the realm of the dead?
