Resurrection House

Praise for Resurrection House:

“Chambers has a skill for evoking the emotions that are needed in the horror field.” –David Agranoff, Postcards from a Dying World [FULL REVIEW]

“Delving into human frailties and fears, Chambers acknowledges the internal monsters of the psyche.  He also adroitly addresses the external evils; those terrors that are kept at bay for the sense of sanity.” –Hellnotes [FULL REVIEW]

“Chambers manages to turn the ordinary into something creepy, conspiracy into something scary, and history into Hell…” –Monster/Colleen Wanglund [FULL REVIEW]

“These stories are highly creative accounts of horror, fantasy, and a bit of science fiction. James Chambers writes stories that are unique and represent some extraordinary short fiction. The stories were ingeniously written…” –Living Dead Media [FULL REVIEW]

They say Mooncat Jack takes the kids nobody is watching, the kids nobody wants. They say he takes them in the dark and smiles with teeth like black dice and eyes like pools of dead water waiting to suck them down to…someplace else….

Darkness is everywhere. It lingers in the echoes of the past and dwells behind the closed doors of ordinary houses. It rises from the dead and hides behind the face of true love. Pretend you don’t see it, but you know it’s there. You know, sooner or later, a day will come when you feel its touch and see its face.

Now from one of dark fiction’s most powerful new voices comes this collection of nightmare visions of the things that live beyond the light. Sure, they say James Chambers is a normal guy. They say he doesn’t look like a horror writer. And yet he’s gazed into the dark and lived to tell these tales of madness and betrayal, shocking Lovecraftian mysteries, and terrifying journeys into history. Known for creating surprising twists and haunting characters, Chambers delivers atmospheric suspense mixed with disturbing, psychological dread. Consider these stories to be cautionary tales, warnings of the unseen horrors that lurk all around us, and read them if you dare.

Published here for the first time anywhere is Chamber’s chilling novelette of the New York City underworld: “Five Points.”
