Bottled Abyss (Redrum Horror), by Benjamin Kane Ethridge

"It happens from time to time...a book grabs you from the opening line and refuses to let you go. Benjamin Kane Ethridge's Bottled Abyss was one of those reads for me. Bottled Abyss is a stunningly sophisticated tale, both in its mythic scope and in its adroit handling of complex, emotional characters. Ethridge is a writer of rare emotional intelligence, developed far beyond his years, but with Bottled Abyss he has outdone even his own considerable promise. There are several writers out there, such as Laird Barron, John Langan and Lee Thomas, that have me chomping at the bit for their next release. Add to that shortlist Benjamin Kane Ethridge, for he has made me a fan for life!" -- Joe McKinney, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Flesh Eaters and Dead City

**Nominated for the Bram Stoker Award - Superior Achievement in Novel - 2012**

Herman and Janet Erikson are going through a crisis of grief and suffering after losing their daughter in a hit and run. They've given up on each other, they've given up on themselves. They are living day by day. One afternoon, to make a horrible situation worse, their dog goes missing in the coyote-infested badlands behind their property. Herman, resolved in preventing another tragedy, goes to find the dog, completely unaware he's on a hike to the River Styx, which according to Greek myth was the border between the Living World and the world of the Dead.

Long ago the gods died and the River dried up, but a bottle containing its waters still remains in the badlands. What Herman discovers about the dark power contained in those waters will change his life forever...

"Bottled Abyss is a rollercoaster of genre, technique, and emotion. It's a novel that pushes boundaries and treads new territory. Whether you're a fan of small-town horror, thrillers, character-driven horror, or apocalyptic fiction, you'll find something in Bottled Abyss to love." --FEARnet
