Daniel Mills just revealed the cover and synopsis for his upcoming novel Moriah, and it looks like it’s going to be a fantastic read.

Mills is a local horror author who’s written numerous short stories (and one novel), and has participated in the Vermont SF Writer’s Series events in the past.

Here’s what it’s about:

Silas Flood is a broken man in a broken country. Nine years have passed since the end of the American Civil War and Flood is helpless to escape its shadow.

In the summer of 1874, he is dispatched to the mountain village of Moriah, Vermont to investigate sensational claims of supernatural happenings. There the brothers Thaddeus and Ambrose Lynch are said to converse with spirits and summon the dead.

As Flood investigates the true nature of these phenomena he must first come to terms with his own past and with the hold it has upon him—before he can behold the mysteries of the other side.

Moriah will be available on March 14th, 2017.
