Synopsis:

“Deep in the heart of Nazi Germany, a fringe concentration camp has fallen silent.

Two years after the fall of Hitler, a troop of French and American soldiers on a mission to close any remaining POW camps, stumble upon the derelict site.

But the compound is not as bereft of life as it seems.

Inside, they will find unimaginable horrors. Unable to leave the camp’s grounds, the soldiers must find out what happened inside its walls or die trying.”

Coming 2014

      1. Because the concept for this book is so badass. Concentration camps ooze evil and send chills down my spine. They’re always held a morbid fascination for me.

  1. I went to high school in Belgium. Field trips included Paris, London, and – on one memorable occasion – a concentration camp. We left that morning a boisterous group of teens; laughter, teasing, couples making out in the back seat. The bus ride home was the exact opposite. We sat in silence, except for the quiet sobbing of some of the girls. I can still remember the atmosphere inside the camp, the oppressive and tortured sense of unspeakable misery. The narrow “beds,” the bare stone walls and floors, the crematorium. And the gallery of photos. Oh my god, the photos. The only thing I can’t remember is the name of the camp, but just seeing the picture at the top of your post made my stomach tighten. If anyone can capture the visceral evil of a death camp, it will be you, E. And I know that you will not do it just for the pornography of the misery, you’ll do it to help us understand how to live in a world where things like that can happen. I am looking forward to this book. And you, my friend, are a brave, brave man to invite that inside and look at it from all angles. Be safe.

    1. I have put off this book for many years, simply because of the content. This will be my return to supernatural horror, but like any good speculative fiction, it will have a strong human element. Stalag Red will be much darker than Dastardly. Dastardly was more of an allegory concerning memories than it was a true horror novel. Stalag Red, on the other hand, really scares the hell out of me.
