Coming soon! Brom Bones Books is preparing to re-release Help for the Haunted: A Decade of Vera Van Slyke Ghostly Mysteries.
This will be followed by the first in a series of Vera Van Slyke Ghostly Mysteries novels, starting with Guilt Is a Ghost. I’m currently writing this, but it probably won’t be available until 2019.
In the meantime, you can learn more about Vera and Lida on this timeline.
“Help for the Haunted is a fun collection of linked short stories, based around a creative theory as to why ghosts are able to return to the plane of the living, and a cute way of detecting these crossovers. Within that framework fall all manner of ghosts and manifestations; every story offers a different kind.” — Nina Zumel, Multo (Ghost)
“The stories have a lot of humor, but have chilling moments too. . . . I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: it’s nice to see two women doing things in fiction.” — Katherine Nabity, The Writerly Reader.
“It’s one of the strengths of Tim Prasil’s writing that he absolutely shows, rather than tells. He has a facility for allowing the reader to understand what his characters are thinking and feeling without stating it outright, which lends a great deal of veracity to his storytelling. . . . There’s no shortage of originality here.” — Dave Brzeski, Occult Detective Quarterly.
