Murder and madness infect a small town

For sixteen-year-old Ruthie Stroud, life on tiny Hemlock Island in the Pacific Northwest is an endless sea of boring green, in a place where everybody knows everybody’s business and nothing ever happens. Then her world is ripped apart when her parents divorce and a new man enters her mother’s life. But worse is yet to come.

When she drifts ashore on the mainland, hideously burned, Ruthie has a harrowing tale to tell. It begins with the murder of a family. It ends with her being the sole survivor of a cataclysm that sweeps her little island. As a detective attempts to unravel Ruthie’s story of murder and madness, only one horrifying conclusion can be drawn: whatever was isolated on remote Hemlock Island may now have come to the mainland. Is Ruthie safe? Is anyone?

"The twists and turns in this book are unlike anything you've read before." -Common Book Sense

Sixteen-year-old Claire Young is tormented by a recurring, prophetic nightmare and visitations from gruesome, mutilated ghosts. She's convinced the apparitions intend to harm her widowed father, but there's little she can do locked away in Saint Thomas Psychiatric Hospital. Her situation is hopeless until a mysterious priest delivers the name of a man who may be the only one willing to help. Claire launches a daring scheme that leads her and her best friend to a former paranormal investigator.

But Claire's father, convinced his daughter is schizophrenic, will send Claire back to Saint Thomas permanently if he discovers she's still clinging to her delusions. Claire and her friends must tread lightly to complete the investigation, but amid bizarre twists and chilling encounters, she'll discover her home's basement is hiding something far more sinister than just ghosts.

DESCRIPTION:

Wicked Temper Creation is the big one. The one you dare not miss. The one your fevered dreams are made of.

In the long and jagged shadow of Riddle Top lies a darkling mountain world–a world of unholy mirth and madness, of gods and demons you never knew existed.

“Thornhorn, where the hell have you been?” ~ William Peter Blatty

Wicked Temper Creation is a towering, epic, and incredible Creation. A tapestry of Southern lives and Appalachian lore in the form and tradition of Pulp Fiction, The Martian Chronicles, Winesburg Ohio, The Illustrated Man, and Spoon River Anthology–the kind of sweeping and vast book described by visionary author Ray Bradbury as “a novel in stories”. With hundreds of pages of never-before-published episodes and material, entwined and centered around the haunted region which surrounds the fearsome mountain known below as Riddle Top,

Wicked Temper Creation also includes an intricately plotted parade of classic Thornhorn chapters such as Johabeth’s Holler, The Axman’s Shift, Turpitude, The Hole And Dobber’s Head (the longest fiction ever published in The Oxford American Magazine), culminating in the unforgettable climactic Southern Gothic classic, Wicked Temper. (If you’ve already read the short novel Wicked Temper, you will soon realize you have only scratched the surface of this disturbing yet delightfully weird world.)

“One of the South’s wildest new voices.” ~ The Oxford American

Opening with the lyric and foreboding chapter Who Child, these Thornhorn folk and their tales unfold and are interwoven as originally envisioned by the author, including vignettes like 3 Angels, Earla Vi, The Iceman’s Blues, and Up Coffin Holler. This is a must-read for readers and fans of author Randy Thornhorn.

Finally, we are provided the full canvas of lovers and misfits and the lost mountain world that surrounds Riddle Top. Finally, we learn the full events, the phantoms and mysteries, that led to the acclaimed follow-up novel with two continued characters that inhabit The Kestrel Waters (A Tale of Love and Devil), which was chosen Best General Fiction Novel finalist by the 2015 Indie Book Awards.

From the introductory page:

“Here lies Wicked Temper as it were and were always meant to be.” ~ Randy Thornhorn

DESCRIPTION:

It’s August in Alaska, and geology professor Jack Oswald prepares for the new school year. But when hundreds of huge holes mysteriously appear overnight in the frozen tundra north of the Arctic Circle, Jack receives an unexpected phone call. An oil company exec hires Jack to investigate, and he picks his climatologist wife and two of their graduate students as his team. Uncharacteristically, Jack also lets Aileen O’Shannon, a bewitchingly beautiful young photojournalist, talk him into coming along as their photographer. When they arrive in the remote oil town of Deadhorse, the exec and a biologist to protect them from wild animals join the team. Their task: to assess the risk of more holes opening under the Trans-Alaska Pipeline and the wells and pipelines that feed it. But they discover a far worse danger lurks below. When it emerges, it threatens to shatter Jack’s unshakable faith in science. And destroy us all…

DESCRIPTION:

Eddie Butcher is lawyer feeding off the bottom of Buffalo’s criminal cesspool. He thinks of nothing but himself and is only motivated by that which can benefit him. He is an abuser, a womanizer, and a coward. He is also the last human being on an empty world.

Eddie awakens to find the streets of his city empty. Aside from the utter lack of life, the world is as it was the night before. There are no signs of an exodus, a plague, or a war of any kind. He is simply alone. Strange (and then terrifying) events conspire to force him to flee the city.

Taking only what he can pack into his car, Eddie finds himself on a nightmare journey across a barren America, guided by an interior compass that seems constantly drawn to the west.

As he travels, the world regresses around him, slowly spinning in the wrong direction. Accompanying this unraveling, Eddie also takes a journey backwards within himself, unlocking memories long buried in the humid root cellar of his deserted heart. Step by step, this broken, bitter man faces each new day, desperate to find a reprieve from his unwanted solitude.
