Still not done with your Christmas Shopping?  Consider buying a copy of Ghost Radio for those paranormal and horror fans on your list.  Critics have raved about this debut novel from Leopoldo Gout.

The Reviews:

“Ghost Radio reminded me of early Stephen King — Carrie and Pet Sematary and The Dead Zone. The story sticks with you long after you’ve finished the final page.”

“A first novel that moves with deserved confidence into Stephen King territory … Palpable, almost visible cross-cultural creepiness that never lets up: very smart thrills.”

“A thrilling literary and visual experience, this contemporary ghost story set in Mexico is a fast-moving and enjoyable read. The story and writing style recall early Stephen King and Joe Hill’s Heart-Shaped Box.”

“The perfect book to curl up with when the TV news goes beyond horror.”

“Calling into radio stations has never been so creepy.

Readers on your shopping list will appreciate a gift of this terrifying new novel.  Available at bookstores everywhere!  Buy copies today!

Fantasy Debut Features GHOST RADIO

Their take:

I do dabble a bit into horror, so this is more appealing to me. The premise reminds me of an actual late-night call-in radio show, Coast to Coast AM with Art Bell. I used to hear the last half-hour on the way to work, back when I worked on a military base and had to get in ridiculously early. It was all about UFOs and the paranormal. As in this novel, I always suspected that Art Bell was a skeptic.

They say:

GHOST RADIO is a wonderful read and I look forward to more work from Gout.

They also say:

Sometimes readers gobble down books, but this story should be read with greater attention to detail, so you can taste the words as you read them and appreciate them like a fine wine.  For example:  “Christopher Franke’s Moog synthesizer caressed these irregular forms while the amber light of sunset gentled against the rough edges.”

And they give it their special rating of:

And here’s another rave:

In talking about this book, I feel it is important to begin with what I felt was one of its most striking aspects- how he tells the story. This novel is not your typically linear story, plodding along in third person omniscient. Leopoldo frequently moves forward and backwards in time using flashbacks and recollections to give the reader an understanding of not only how Joaquin became who he was, but also insights into the struggle he is engaged in. Moreover, the author changes both point of view and voice to provide the perspective of other key players. In combination, these techniques jar the reader out of complacency and forces them into a place where they can juxtapose the bewildering torrent of events befalling Joaquin.
