At the Cemetery Gates Year One by John Brhel & J. Sullivan
A young woman sees an approaching figure in her time-lapse photo project. A small town’s strange illness seems to stem from the local cemetery. Two boys make a grim discovery about death and decay when they sneak into a funeral parlor. AT THE CEMETERY GATES: YEAR ONE is an entertaining and eerie short story collection for fans of the strange, macabre, and supernatural.
Hi. My name is John Brhel. I write fantastical stories about demons, ghosts, magicians, and regular ol’ Joes. I’m the co-author of two books, Marvelry’s Curiosity Shop and Tales From Valleyview Cemetery, with my good friend Joe Sullivan. With Joe, I am also a co-founder of Cemetery Gates Media, a publisher of rich fantasy and horror stories. I am currently working on new stories with Joe, as well as my own novel.
When I’m not writing fiction, I work full-time as a communications manager at Binghamton University, where I manage social media, publish press releases, write magazine articles, and a whole bunch more. I also use all of these same skills as a freelance copywriter, as which I have experience writing content for everything from consulting firms to tech startups to rock bands and more.
At The Cemetery Gate is a collection of 14 short horror stories. Each story has its own life and will leave you shivering, teared up, or laughing (that could just be me). You will follow along as couple find a secluded cabin, a son and father mourn the loss of the mother, an ancient spell book is discovered, and a man has questions about his wife’s fidelity.
I am a child of the 90’s and grew up with Tales from the Crypt. This collection reminds me of that show. There is a little bit of everything that will leave you guessing at the end of each story. It is easy to get into each story and I loved all the twists you discover.
If you like horror anthologies look no further. This is a great collection that will appeal to any horror lover. I will definitely be on the lookout for other books from these authors and Cemetary Gates Media.
I received At The Cemetery Gates Year One from the publisher for free. This has in no way influenced my opinion of this book.
