“I haven’t read all of Andy’s books, but I’ve read several, and I like that he writes whatever he likes. He’s got some damn good stuff. RIDING SHOTGUN for one. I’ve read a few others, and am trying to catch up. But he’s my To Be Discovered author I’m pushing right now.” – Joe Lansdale.
“The classic horror short story not only lives and breathes. In the imaginative brain of Andy Rausch, it’s totally reanimated. Want proof? Sample, from this brain-busting collection, The $10,000 John Wayne Magnum Opus. But not just before you go to sleep, unless you want to risk nightmares.”—Herschell Gordon Lewis, author, Blood Feast.
Welcome to the darkest corners of Andy Rausch’s mind. Nightmare Pavillion and Other Supernatural Stories collects 13 of Rausch’s twisted—and occasionally darkly hilarious—tales of murder, revenge, crime, more murder, and culminating with the title story, Nightmare Pavillion, an adaptation of the cult classic film, Carnival of Souls.
Praise for the novella:
“[Nightmare Pavilion] Andy Rausch’s adaptation of Carnival Of Souls, is a well-crafted piece of writing that largely stays true to the original narrative and does an incredible job evoking the time and place of the story. Like a classic Twilight Zone story, the novel knows how to draw you in, paint a picture with overwhelming mood and dread and then get out before it wears out its welcome.” — Kevin VanHook, writer/creator, Bloodshot.
The 1962 black-and-white horror classic Carnival of Souls has been scaring audiences for the past six decades, and for good reason. A masterpiece in atmospheric horror, Herk Harvey’s direction and John Clifford’s screenplay built suspense and ratcheted up the terror in a way that few low-budget horror films have replicated since. With this new novelization, Nightmare Pavilion, author Andy Rausch (Savage Brooklyn) tackles the film’s story in a fresh and exciting way. Readers are even treated to two versions of the story’s ending—retaining the original, and then adding an extended conclusion traveling beyond!
This new Hardback collection includes the titular novella as well as a dozen other stories by Rausch including A Familiar Face (co-written by Charles E. Pratt, Jr.), The $10,000 John Wayne Magnum Opus (2020 REMIX – co-written/remixed by Chris Miller), THE Reckanado (co-written by Josslyn Rausch), Searching for Dirty Jesus, and many more!
Andy Rausch is the author of more than forty books, including The Suicide Game, Layla’s Score, and Until One of Us Is Dead. He resides in Nowhere, Kansas with his wife and children.
