Smog – Baggage of
The Limited Edition is in stock and shipping!
The Double Down series continues with two novellas that cast mid-twentieth-century America in a dark light.
In Smog, tomboy Joey thinks she’s got the perfect life: It’s 1965 and she lives in an idyllic Southern California suburb where everyone works for the aerospace industry. But when something goes wrong with a rocket test, the smog thickens and the teenagers change into rampaging killers. Can Joey survive long enough to escape the neighborhood before she joins their ranks?
1963 Detroit is a hotbed of gambling, and the weekly baggage auctions keep a busy trade. Regulars, Charlie Stewart and Joey Third, are skilled in the methods of successful bidding, but when Joey lands a mysterious suitcase, the thrill of winning turns to fear once they realize they’ve opened something sinister.
Inside the suitcase is an antique gramophone, and the music it plays is unlike anything these men have heard before. A chanting voice speaks to them in strange words and begets visions of a dark, frozen land. It’s a voice that makes them sick with addiction, and it continues chanting in their heads even when the record stops playing.
Charlie sets out to solve the mystery of who recorded the unholy music and how to turn it off forever. But time is against him, and the urge to listen—the addiction—to the song grows stronger. And the more it plays, the more the aural virus spreads, until people begin to vanish… feeding the soul of a spirit seeking immortality.
“With Smog, Lisa Morton has created the perfect coming-of-age story. This is a tale of a magical time, with wonderful characters and a gripping plot that just won’t let go. This is Morton at her very best and you don’t want to miss this one.” – John R. Little, Author of THE MEMORY TREE, MIRANDA, and URSA MAJOR
“I’m sure SMOG by Lisa Morton is a true tale of terrifying horror. Or maybe she’s just that fabulous of a writer. Evocative, provocative, and TOTALLY FREAKY. More!” – Nancy Holder, 5-time Bram Stoker Award winner and NYT bestselling author, DEAD IN THE WATER
“Wonderfully weird! Detroit may be gone, but in Eric J. Guignard’s Baggage of Eternal Night the majesty that was Detroit so long ago is found again. Guignard writes with an effortless flow that feels so natural, so easy, that I couldn’t help but feel I was sitting next to him, listening with rapt horror at the tale he spun. Read this, right now. You will not be sorry.” — Joe McKinney, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Dead City and Inheritance
“Eric J. Guignard is a brilliant writer, and Baggage of Eternal Night, his debut work of long fiction, pays off the promise of his early stories, tenfold. The prose is vivid, the characters richly drawn, and the pages seem to turn themselves. Do yourself a favor—don’t miss this!” — Peter Giglio, author of Stealing Night and Lesser Creatures
