“Ghost Radio reminded me of early Stephen King….The story sticks with you long after you’ve finished the final page.”
A ghost story call-in program opens a doorway into the paranormal in Ghost Radio, an utterly original and intensely creepy first novel by filmmaker, composer, and graphic novelist Leopoldo Gout. Booklist calls Ghost Radio, “A deliciously creepy yarn,” and its publication immediately elevates author Gout into the august ranks of the masters Stephen King, Peter Straub, Dean Koontz, and acclaimed, award-winning relative newcomer Joe (Heart-Shaped Box, Horns) Hill.

Emanating from the cramped bowels of a dimly lit station—the demented dreamchild of hip, melancholy host Joaquin—Ghost Radio is a sanctuary for sleepless denizens of the night lost halfway between this world and the next. A call-in talk show that invites listeners to share scary stories about vampires and poltergeists, it is a bona fide cult phenomenon. Joined in the booth by his darkly beautiful girlfriend, Alondra, and his devoted engineer, Watt, Joaquin masks his skepticism, encouraging callers to withhold nothing as they spin nightmares and grotesqueries they swear are true.
But the wall separating reality from delusion—the living from the dead—is crumbling because Ghost Radio is going national, picked up for syndication by a huge conglomerate. And no one—not Joaquin, Alondra, or Watt—is even remotely prepared for what's coming next . . .About the Author:
Leopoldo Gout is a producer, director, graphic novelist, writer, and composer. He is currently producing an animated film with NBC and Curious Pictures. He lives in New York City. Ghost Radio is his first novel.
