About the Book:

Something old and deadly has awoken.

When two teenagers go missing from the small, rural town of Sallow Bend, the residents come together to search for them. Little do they suspect that finding the wayward girls will be the start of their problems. An old evil is rising, and only one man seems to realize that everyone is in danger and this is not the first time it’s happened. With the carnival in town, people want to have a good time, but for many, this will be the worst time of their lives.

"Sometimes when kids get lost in the woods, they come out again. Sometimes that’s not a good thing. Sometimes they’re not alone anymore. Baxter’s Sallow Bend has more than a touch of King about it." - Angela Slatter, award-winning author of All the Murmuring Bones

"(Sallow Bend) is an immersive page-turner where details about the characters and the eerie history of the place are effortlessly fleshed out. Paired with the unceasingly intensifying dread, the story quickly escalates from unsettling to terrifying. Baxter, already an award-winning horror author in his native Australia, seems poised to take over America as well." - Booklist

"A deftly crafted novel that will have a very special appeal to readers who enjoy dark fantasy, supernatural thrillers, and books that should be read with all the lights on, "Sallow Bend" by Alan Baxter is one of those works of horror fiction that will linger in the mind and memory long after the book itself has been finished and set back upon the shelf." - The Midwest Book Review

"I loved this book so much! There is an old superstitious saying when you get a weird unexplained chill, that it's because a goose just walked over your grave. This book gave me chills so many times that the entire gaggle of geese must have walked over mine. Sallow Bend was a pleasantly creepy surprise for me. It has pretty much everything my heart desires in a horror novel." - Well Worth A Read

"Master of the slow build, master of insidious horror, master of multiple points of view...hell, Baxter is simply The Master, and this haunting, chilling novel solidifies his position as one of the best horror writers working today. I loved every surprising, moving, terrifying moment of it, and so will you." - Tim Lebbon, author of The Last Storm

"Old school creepiness that gets better with each page. I couldn't help but smile as I read this. Expert characterization combined with mounting dread make Sallow Bend an instant classic." John Mantooth, author of Holy Ghost Road and The Year of the Storm
