QSFer Brian Barr has a new queer horror book out:
Welcome to the final book of the 3 H’s Trilogy: The Hell!
Susie and Mac are ghost hunters. They investigate and exorcise haunted houses for a living.
A client hires Susie and Mac to investigate a house in Lexington, SC. Although they are experienced in handling malignant spirits and haunted territories, the client promises that this place is unlike any the ghost hunters have exorcised before.
Susie and Mac never back down from a challenge, or from a job. They’ll make their way to the house, and encounter the hell that’s waiting for them.
Whether they can survive or not is a different question.
Gregory Alex Bailey built his perfect house of horrors in the 1950’s, continuing the family tradition of sacrifice and murder. Within that house, he was certain that he could succeed where former ancestors had failed, and secure a place for them in the land of the living.
Lucas didn’t want to continue his father’s legacy.
Out of love for his son, Gregory killed him.
Lucas gained his second chance through his resurrection, when the loyal and devoted Janice made the ultimate sacrifice for him. Lucas’ new life gave him an appreciation for his father, who had long disappeared by the time Lucas came back.
Desperate to see his father again, Lucas did all he could to maintain the house, while training his children in the family tradition.
Like the father before them, the children rebelled. Lucas understood. As he had rebelled, so did his father, and his grandfather before him. But sooner or later, every Bailey accepted their fate.
Eventually, they would all share…
