Welcome to Parr's Landing, Population 1,528 . . . and shrinking.

The year is 1972. Widowed Christina Parr, her daughter Morgan, and her brother-in-law Jeremy have returned to the remote northern Ontario mining town of Parr's Landing, the place from which Christina fled before Morgan was born, seeking refuge. Dr. Billy Lightning has also returned in search of answers to the mystery of his father's brutal murder. All will find some part of what they seek-and more.

Built on the site of a decimated 17th-century Jesuit mission to the Ojibwa, Parr's Landing is a town with secrets of its own buried in the caves around Bradley Lake. A three-hundred-year-old horror slumbers there, calling out to the insane and the murderous for centuries, begging for release-an invitation that has finally been answered.

One man is following that voice, cutting a swath of violence across the country, bent on a terrible resurrection of the ancient evil, plunging the town and all its people into an endless night.

Praise for Michael Rowe

"Rowe's tale of teenage anguish and loneliness (October) is an exquisitely told cautionary tale, rich in visceral images of horror and the erotic."
-Vince Liaguno, editor of the Bram Stoker Award-winning Unspeakable Horror: From the Shadows of the Closet

"October is the kind of horror novel a lot of adults needed when they were kids. Michael Rowe understands that while it gets better for some people, not everyone can afford to sit back and wait if they want to survive. A powerful and powerfully frightening tale about making hard choices in the name of survival, and what those choices cost. Because becoming who you are really means making a deal with the Devil. And sometimes, the Devil is the only one who really understands."
-Bracken MacLeod, author of Stranded and 13 Views of the Suicide Woods

"Michael Rowe's talent shines through in this terrifying story of black magic, social persecution, and desire gone horrifically wrong. Readers will immediately identify with the story of Mikey Childress, and they'll hold on for dear life as Mikey's search for acceptance and a dream of love drag them across a jagged terrain of brutality and indifference. With October, Rowe taps into the primal terrors of a teen's life, exploring the loneliness and misery of an outcast who finds his only salvation in a vicious, dark place."
-Lee Thomas, Lambda Literary Award- and Bram Stoker Award-winning author of The German and Down on Your Knees

"[Wild Fell is a] superb ghost story that evokes terrors both ancient and modern, and delivers us to a place of profound fear."
-Clive Barker

"[A] major new talent. Michael Rowe is now on my must-read list."
-Christopher Rice

"[Wild Fell] by Canadian author Michael Rowe fulfills the Hobbesian ideal of a haunted house novel: nasty, brutish and short. Also, elegant. With more than a little meta-fictional self-awareness-another trope of the haunted house novel post-1820, when the genre was already centuries old-Rowe tells the story of damaged ingnue Jameson Browning, who purchases the titular mansion on a lake-locked outcropping called Blackmore Island after an accident which puts him in possession of a sizable cash settlement. The ghosts are also real in Rowe, this time in the visage of Rosa Blackmore, a spectral teenager who makes known her presence in grim, strobic flashes around the estate. And yet, as in all the best haunted house stories, the specter in Wild Fell is more than just that; it's a powerful human emotion made flesh-or un-flesh, as the case may be. While over it all loom the spires of Wild Fell: dwelt in by Jameson, dwelling in him."
-Electric Lit

"Michael Rowe writes like a storyteller, so seamlessly that the words disappear under your skin."
-Susie Moloney for CBC Manitoba
