The English language debut of the bestselling Dutch novel, Hex, from Thomas Olde Heuvelt–a Hugo and World Fantasy award nominated talent to watch

Whoever is born here, is doomed to stay ’til death. Whoever settles, never leaves.

Welcome to Black Spring, the seemingly picturesque Hudson Valley town haunted by the Black Rock Witch, a seventeenth century woman whose eyes and mouth are sewn shut. Muzzled, she walks the streets and enters homes at will. She stands next to children’s bed for nights on end. Everybody knows that her eyes may never be opened or the consequences will be too terrible to bear.

The elders of Black Spring have virtually quarantined the town by using high-tech surveillance to prevent their curse from spreading. Frustrated with being kept in lockdown, the town’s teenagers decide to break their strict regulations and go viral with the haunting. But, in so doing, they send the town spiraling into dark, medieval practices of the distant past.

This chilling novel heralds the arrival of an exciting new voice in mainstream horror and dark fantasy.

    I try to get to New York City once or twice a year.  It’s one of my favorite cities in the world, and my visits there are always half business, half pleasure. On the business side, I check in with all my publishers (I have several), my agents (I have several), with my editors (past

    In between Washington and New York City on my awards tour of America, I dropped by my hometown of Bayonne, New Jersey to visit my family. While I was there, my sisters Darleen and Janet presented me with the WORLD’S GREATEST AWARD.  They said they did not want to be the only stop I made

    Hard to believe (at least for me), but it’s been twenty years since A CLASH OF KINGS was first published, in 1999. That being the case, however, we wanted to do something special to mark the occasion.  And we have. The anniversary edition of CLASH from Bantam is gorgeously and lavishly illustrated by Lauren K.
