Black Mercy Falls

A Novella by

The small Colorado town of Black Mercy Falls has a ghastly past.

The massive waterfall above the town runs thick with black iron oxide, but there are hushed suggestions that something evil is responsible for the dark waters. Whispers of the locals connect a list of missing children with a diabolic tale of the town's founding father. Is the waterfall haunted? Or is the town cursed by something that stalks its children by night?

Now the waterfall and the land it's on are bequeathed to Lance Evans by his estranged uncle. But when Lance brings his wife and son to explore the inheritance, they scarcely have a chance to marvel at its beauty and settle in to the rustic cabin than good fortune is overshadowed by tragedy. Mists of the past enshroud a dark legacy that threatens to take the lives of those he loves. It'll take all he can do to save them ... or die trying.

(This novella was previously published in limited hardcover and ebook editions by Delirium Books in 2011.)

Blurbs for Black Mercy Falls by Christopher Fulbright and Angeline Hawkes:

"Equal parts gritty and elegant, Black Mercy Falls is a tense, dark and welcome contribution to the growing fusion of crime and horror fiction. Watch out -- these authors just upped their game!" -- Hank Schwaeble, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Damnable

"If a classic horror story presents a graphic and chilling depiction of awful things happening to perfectly nice people that you feel for as they struggle against evil, then Black Mercy Falls is a classic horror story. Christopher Fulbright and Angeline Hawkes have crafted a completely absorbing and -- best of all -- unpredictable tale that has sympathetic characters, vivid and rich descriptions, an eerie plot and atmosphere, and some truly startling moments of grotesque intensity. Black Mercy Falls is as much a tale of domestic tragedy as it is a very compelling horror story. Set aside some time to read it all in one sitting to get the full effect." -- William Schoell, author of Saurian, Bride of Satan, and The Dragon

"With their novella Black Mercy Falls, Christopher Fulbright and Angeline Hawkes have shown us why horror continues to be an essential part of our storytelling tradition. Not only is Black Mercy Falls a brilliant meditation on the nature of evil in our world, it is also a tour de force in the study of what makes us human. Through a combination of family drama, local legend and satanic bargains, Fulbright and Hawkes have written a story that will swallow you up as surely as an undertow. This is great stuff. Consider it required reading for the discerning horror connoisseur." -- Joe McKinney, author of Dead City and Apocalypse of the Dead

"In Black Mercy Falls, Angeline Hawkes and Christopher Fulbright deliver a tale with a double-edged blade. It's difficult to say whether the deterioration of the family, or the ancient evil they encounter is more disturbing. You'll never trust an inheritance again." -- David Niall Wilson, author of Deep Blue and Ancient Eyes

"Black Mercy Falls is wonderfully creepy and atmospheric! I loved it!" -- Jeanne Stein, bestselling novelist of the Anna Strong series

"Black Mercy Falls [...] had me hooked from the beginning, right to the end. And I look forward to reading more work from this terrific pair." -- Kathy Ptacek, author of Shadoweyes and In Silence Sealed
