Michael Laimo is one of the small number of authors I’ve discovered through the monthly publications of Leisure Books whose work has really done something for me. The first book I read by him, “>The Demonologist (review), impressed me; but it was his last novel, “>Dead Souls (review), that really made me sit up and take notice.
When I approached him to do a Dreadtime Story for us, he was the first author who chose to do an excerpt from his latest novel rather than a short story and for good reason; Fires Rising, which is out now (get it from Evilshop here!), is the book he’s most proud of to date.
The sample you can hear by clicking below or on the graphic above is just a very small section of a much larger story about a church on the verge of demolition whose horrific secrets are finally revealed. Get clicking below to hear part of Chapter One, and be sure to visit Michael at his official site to learn more about this terrifying new voice in horror!
