Celebrate Halloween early at Northshire!  Two horror authors present their new novels in a night of chills--Z. J. Hampl's The Mortician's Curse and Bill Halpin's The Cult of Eden.

In Bill Halpin's The Cult of Eden, Newlywed Will Battese finds himself homesick and overwhelmed after following his ambitious wife, Shannon, to New York City. When a surprise pregnancy shreds their already meager budget, Will drops out of college and settles for work at a low-end diner. There, a small act of kindness draws the attention of Victor Degas, a man with an unsettling presence and deformed eyes. Unbeknownst to Will, Degas belongs to an ancient, sophisticated cult known as the Edens and believes Will to be the key to gaining otherworldly power. As the sun sets on Good Friday, Degas orchestrates a home invasion in which Will and his baby boy, Gideon, are kidnapped, leaving Shannon to join forces with an unreliable agent from the Roman Catholic Church. While Will struggles to save other innocents from the Eden parish below the city, Shannon discovers that the cult plans to use her family for an unimaginable demonic ritual, and that the Vatican may let it happen. With no one to trust but themselves, Shannon and Will must fight not only to survive, but to keep their humanity intact. THE CULT OF EDEN is the first volume in The Unrisen saga.

In Z. J. Hampl's The Mortician's Curse,  Lexi is a beautiful, but wild, college senior. She lives to manipulate men. Her life changes after enrolling in a mysterious college course called "Death and Dying." In this course, secularism and liberalism run rampant, challenging the views of every student in the class. After a tour of a local funeral home with a sinister mortician, Lexi's promiscuous and out-of-control lifestyle leads her onto a dark path. Will she ever get the chance to change, or will she be forced to endure the mortician's curse for the rest of her miserable life?
