About the eBook:
It begins in a small Southwestern town. Then it spreads.
Across the country a series of strange deaths have overtaken the living. And a stranger compulsion has overtaken the dead.
In a travesty of life, they drift with bizarre purpose toward an unknown destination.
The walkers have become an obsession for investigator Miles Huerdeen. His father is one of them.
Now, lured into the shadow of the restless dead, Miles is a step closer to a secret as old as time... to a reality as dark as Hell.
For Miles is following them into the deep end of an unfathomable nightmare.
Bentley Little was born in Arizona a month after his mother attended the world premiere of Psycho. He received his BA in Communications and MA in English and Comparative Literature at California State University Fullerton. His Master's thesis was the novel The Revelation, which was later published and won the Bram Stoker Award in 1991. Since then, he has written many more novels and his work has been translated into seven different languages. Several of his novels have been optioned for film.
His work has appeared in many issues of Cemetery Dance magazine, including Cemetery Dance #64, which was the Bentley Little Special Issue and featured an original interview with him and two of his brand new short stories.
When asked in that issue why he writes horror, he answered: "I write horror because I have to. That's the way my mind works. Those are the ideas that come to me. I've never felt limited by the genre. How could I? Horror fiction offers an author the broadest possible canvas on which to work. I have all of the real-world subjects at my disposal that a mainstream writer does—plus the infinite realm of the supernatural. Creatively, there's nothing else that comes close to this sort of scope, which is why there is nothing I would rather be than a horror writer."
