About Breed

The quaint Florida town of St. Augustine is a magnet for tourists. But one site is off-limits even for the locals.

Built on a sacred Indian burial ground, Tolomato Cemetery has been closed for years. But now a slaughtered Wiccan priestess has been discovered on the grounds. Human remains have been found in a nearby Dumpster. And a cryptic message is haunting a woman's sleepless nights--a warning that the doors between two worlds have been opened.

Whatever's buried in Tolomato Cemetery is more than legend.

It's alive.

Praise for Breed

"Breed should come with a warning on the cover: Danger: Heavy duty scare factor! Owl Goingback weaves a mesmerizing blend of nightmarish Native American myth and good old fashioned ghost story. As always Goingback threads important historic facts into his storyline which makes his works even more notable. Breed is packed with chills that don't let up, and will leave you listening long into the wee hours for strange noises and looking for unnatural shadows. Good stuff."

— Horror World

"Breed is an entertaining read...perfect for an airport layover or a rainy day."

Fangoria

"A well-crafted, highly readable tale."

— Hellnotes

"A good, unusually atmospheric tale of monsters and the unquiet undead."

— Locus

"Bram Stoker Award-winning author Owl Goingback's Breed is a suspenseful train ride through St. Augustine's history and folklore."

— The St. Augustine Record

"With Breed, Owl Goingback has captured the places and people of America's oldest city in modern times. His use of local legends and hauntings, mixed liberally with his own wild imagination and natural gift for storytelling, has produced a book that's as authentic as it is fun and frightening. A bravura performance by a writer who started out good and just keeps getting better."

About Evil Whispers:

Robert and Janet Patterson and their young daughter, Krissy, went looking for the perfect getaway vacation spot. They found it in a backwoods Florida town. Far away from civilization. Quiet and peaceful. And terribly isolated.

Robert and Janet should have listened to the local legends. They should have heeded the warnings about the black water lagoon. And they should have listened to their daughter when she told them about the whispers in the woods. Because now, it's too late. Krissy's disappeared, and whatever took their little girl is coming back for more....

Praise for Evil Whispers

"If you like strongly plotted, high tension stories, then this is the story for you. Evil Whispers will engage you as well as terrify you."

Alternate Realities Webzine

"Goingback is a master of slow, steady suspense building. He takes the time to develop his characters and establish his atmosphere. In the proper amount of time, the threats he hints at become realized. His climaxes are fast-paced, white-knuckled explosions of action. He always delivers on his promises. You're assured a great time with anything he writes, and this novel will only enhance that reputation."

Cemetery Dance

"Evil Whispers is a fun, entertaining novel. It moves along at a quick pace and makes for a relatively fast, enjoyable read with a little blood and a few chills thrown in for good measure. Goingback is considered one of today's biggest talents in the field of horror."

Painted Rock Reviews

"Owl Goingback does not disappoint. He delivers some very tight writing, great characters and a genuinely gripping story. Evil Whispers is on the money."

— Paula Sahraoui
Horror World

"Evil Whispers is a hair raising, thrilling urban fantasy story that takes the audience on quite a ride. Fans who relish a taut frightening chiller will want to read this tale and know that they will not be going back to King or Koontz until they read award winning Owl Goingback's previous works (see Crota)."

— Allscifi.com
(Harriet Klausner, reviewer)

"Owl Goingback has woven yet another masterful tale of suspense and Native American lore."

About Darker Than Night:

Just because you can't see what hides in the darkness... doesn't mean it isn't there.

Horror novelist Michael Anthony is going home. Taking his family from New York City to the small Missouri town where he grew up with his eccentric grandmother. But when they move into her old house, they find that something already resides there.

In the walls, under the floors, in the darkest corners... something is trying to break through into this world.

And when it does, Michael and his family will be lucky to escape with their lives....

Boneline Spacer

Praise for Darker than Night

"A chilling tale... Mr. Goingback creates a story line that rivals the best of the genre's masters... One of the year's best horror novels."

BookBrowser

"Owl Goingback writes... the elemental scare, the campfire tale, that's all too rare these days."

Gothic.net

"Darker than Night makes a fine addition to any horror lover's bookshelf."

Hellnotes

"Owl Goingback puts the chill back in chiller..."

The Chiaroscuro

"Darker than Night scared the pants off me. I stayed up late and finished it. If any writer knows how to keep you up, it's Owl Goingback. He remains one of our most accomplished writers of horror fiction."

—Terry Brooks

About Crota

It is called Crota... the Bram Stoker Award-winning first novel by Owl Goingback. Brimming with originality and feverish suspense, it is the kind of tale told around the crackling coals of a moonlit campfire. A mystical mixture of Native American legend and modern American terror that has become one of the most acclaimed debuts of the year.

It is called Crota... and it has awakened. Sheriff Skip Harding is called out to investigate a double homicide unlike any he has ever seen before: the bodies are torn to pieces in the woods. Some think it's a bear. But others whisper something different. It's the Crota, they say. The great beast of legend that one day will reawaken. And that day has arrived....


Boneline Spacer

Praise for Crota

"How could you resist a book written by someone named Owl Goingback? Crota is not a tale to read at night. It's a chiller... Convincing and fascinating."

San Francisco Examiner

"A chase and capture scenario.... The narrative high points are the accounts of Indian history and legend. Goingback keeps the action brisk."

Publishers Weekly

"Engrossing.... Claustrophobically frightening... [Goingback] turns an Indian myth into a monster of a tale."

Sun-Sentinel (Fort Lauderdale)

"An extraordinary visionary novel."

Anniston Star

"One of the best un-put-downable novels that has passed through my hands in a long time. Goingback has excelled. Excitement on every page."

—Andre Norton

"Thrills and chills.... An easy-reading, compelling page-turner.... A dynamic climax.... Well written."

Hartford Courant
