People will never learn that former battlefields and hospitals make terrible livings quarters. Too much bad mojo. But without such stupidity, we’d have a lot fewer horror stories like Brad C. Hodson’s debut novel, Darling, published last month by Bad Moon Books.
In Darling Hodson, who has honed his craft and passion for horror through a successful track record of popular fiction and non-fiction short stories, takes readers to Raynham Place, a former battlefield and tuberculosis hospital and home to a number of mysterious occurrences. It’s a tale that’s sure to spook, haunt, and thrill legions of horror story genre fans.
“Growing up in rural Tennessee, my family shared ghost stories which turned me into a lifelong horror and mystery fan,” says Hodson. “I delight in sharing with my readers tales of murder, mystery, and suspense that will continue to haunt them long after they’re read.”>
From its start as a battlefield through its time as a tuberculosis hospital and even in its current incarnation as an apartment complex, the grounds of Raynham Place have been awash in blood and instability. When two friends decide to move into Raynham together, a wound that they share opens wide and threatens their sanity. But they’re not alone. Something is off here at Raynham, something that goes beyond the local legends of ghosts and serial killers and Black Hounds, something that gets inside of everyone who ever lives here. When a sacrifice is made, the first freely given in ages, the truth behind Raynham’s legends finally surfaces, and the building fills to bursting with all the dreams of Hell.
