From Stephen Stromp, author of In The Graveyard Antemortem, comes Where the Cats Will Not Follow, a novel which has received high praise from Dread Central, Horror Talk and others. Released through Amazon’s Kindle Press imprint, the novel focuses on a young man coming-of-age against the backdrop of his struggle to understand whether he really does possess the ability to read minds, or if it is simply mental illness. The book is part fantasy part horror and part surrealism and refuses to sit comfortably in any of those boxes, instead straddling multiple genres. You can get hold of your copy, here.
