“Fitch’s latest turns a horrible secret of the past into a waking nightmare for today, proving some things just won’t stay buried.”
A tragic hunting accident at Coomb’s Gulch in the Adirondack Mountains left a boy buried a decade ago. It also left four childhood friends with the burden of a terrible secret.
Today, Jonathan Hollis and brothers Michael and Conner Braddick return to Coomb’s Gulch. They must keep their secret buried. But long before the hunting accident, something else called Coomb’s Gulch home.
Something ancient and evil.
Something that demands a sacrifice.
Why we’re excited about this book:
A relative newcomer to the horror scene, Marc. E. Fitch dabbles in the genre with both fiction and non-fiction. Author of Old Boone Blood, Paradise Burns, and Paranormal Nation: Why America Needs Ghosts, UFOs, and Bigfoot, Fitch’s short fiction has been published in such publications as Thuglit, Nightscript, Pulp Modern Magazine and Best Horror of the Year, Volume 10. Fitch’s latest turns a horrible secret of the past into a waking nightmare for today, proving some things just won’t stay buried. Eric J. Guignard (That Which Grows Wild, A World of Horror) says: “This is what true horror is meant to be, quiet and thoughtful, an eerie sense of something lurking just ahead in your path with no way of escape; Boy in the Box by Marc E. Fitch is the haunting guilt that reminds us mistakes from the past can return at any time, and in the worst of ways.”
Forthcoming from Flametree Press, Boy in the Box by Marc. E. Fitch releases 23 April 2020 and is available for pre-order now.
