Old Ghosts is Joseph J. Christiano’s first collection of novellas and takes you from the darkest days of World War II Europe to the idyllic New England town of Deacon’s Landing.
In these six assembled tales of terror, you will witness how an act of unspeakable evil dooms the crew of a crashed German bomber in “emet.” A rookie trucker takes to a dangerous mountain pass and comes face to face with the legend of “The Highwayman.” A suicidal woman who has lost her family and her arm experiences a bizarre and terrifying form of “Phantom Pain.” An online gamer experiences horror when he is granted the ability to play his favorite game in “God Mode.” A professional assassin known only as “The Frenchman” gets in over his head when he takes a job for a mob boss. And an elderly man returns to his hometown for his mother’s funeral and comes face to face with some “Old Ghosts.”
Whether he is telling stories of the frozen battlefields of a devastated Europe or the mundane anxiety of trying to impress a new employer, Joseph J. Christiano demonstrates his knowledge of what scares you and puts that knowledge to good use in these six novellas.
Joseph J Christiano writes horror like Nora Roberts writes romance. His prose are clever and intense, with the kind of thought-provoking storylines that make you snug the slight gap in the drapes or illuminate a dim corner of the room. Just in case. With his latest work, he brings together a series of novellas that illustrate the dexterity of his talent and imagination. He examines the human spirit and discovers what makes a man become a hero...or a monster. Horror fans will love this thrill-fest.
Joe grew up in Connecticut's Naugatuck Valley. A voracious reader since he was old enough to hold a book in his hands, he surprised his second grade teacher by using the word "invulnerable" (learned from a Superman comic book) in a sentence. He wrote his first story at the ripe old age of 11. His published works include the novels The Last Battleship and Moon Dust. His favorite authors and influences include Richard Matheson, Rod Sterling, Agatha Christie, Stephen King, Alan Moore and Neil Gaiman.
