With The Pumpkin Man, John Everson carves his name into the list of great horror writers. A deliciously creepy novel!
—Jonathan Maberry, New York Times Bestselling Author of Rot and Ruin
After her father’s gruesome murder, Jenn needed a place to get away from it all with some friends, to take her mind off her grief. The empty seaside cottage she inherited seemed perfect.
Jenn didn’t know that the cottage held arcane secrets, mysteries long hidden and best left alone. She didn’t realize until it was too late that the old books and Ouija board she found there really do hold great power. And it was only after her friend’s headless body was discovered that she knew the legend of the local bogeyman was no mere legend at all.
An evil has been unleashed, a terrifying figure previously only spoken of in whispers. But now the whispers will become screams.
Beware…THE PUMPKIN MAN!
