J. S. Breukelaar´s Aletheia available now from Crystal Lake Publishing
This week saw the much anticipated release of Aletheia from Crystal Lake Publishing. Written by J. S. Breukelaar (American Monster), Aletheia tells the story of a remote town where disappearances are connected to something which lives in the lake. The book has received praise from such leading lights as Paul Tremblay (Disappearance at Devilºs Rock) so should be one to look out for. We will of course bring you a review of the book on This is Horror in due course. You can find out more about it here.
