WINNER! 2013 Best Horror Novel from Preditors & Editors

INTRODUCTION BY LEGENDARY GENRE AUTHOR PIERS ANTHONY

Morgan Dunsmore feels like everything is out of reach - a paying job, a healthy marriage, and even a good bowel movement. Complicated by his wife's recent back surgery, Morgan tries to protect his wife and kids from his anxieties, not to mention their financial burdens, but that just pushes them away even further.

And in the middle of it all, he starts to lose his tangibility.

He may be able to walk through walls, but that ability comes with a price. He has to learn not just how to control it, but how to use it without anyone finding out, not even his family. He doesn’t want to become a circus freak or government test subject while providing for his wife and kids, but there doesn’t seem to be any honest work for a man who can secretly phase through solid matter. The temptations, on the other hand--the temptations are endless, and when he succumbs to the first, the rest begin to fall like dominoes...

Review:

For anyone ever wishing for a superpower, this book will punch you in the face and ask, 'Really, you idiot?' At once frightening, touching, and all-too-human, LOSING TOUCH is a unique gem of a read. --Elizabeth Massie, Bram Stoker Award®-winning author of SINEATER, DESPER HOLLOW, and HELL GATE

"It's been said there are amateur writers and unpublished and unknown pro writers. Larsen's writing was unknown to me. But after reading LOSING TOUCH I can recommend his work without reservation. He is indeed a solid pro. The novel has an unusual premise, the prose precise, the plot compelling, and the story has satisfying closure. Do yourself a favor, read this interesting novel. Then you, like me, will watch for his byline." --Gene O'Neill, Bram Stoker Award®-winning author of TASTE OF TENDERLOIN and DANCE OF THE BLUE LADY AND OTHER STORIES

Christian A. Larsen's LOSING TOUCH is a near-perfect blend of the hyperreal and the surreal, turning the microscope on everyman Morgan Dunsmore, an unemployed copywriter and family man who is forced to confront the black hole of his own inadequacy and his inability to provide for wife and sons. Suddenly afflicted with a strange super-power that allows him to phase through solid objects, he may have found the answer to all his problems or he may have found his own undoing. For Morgan's journey is an uncomfortable ride through conscience and subconscious, simultaneously humorous and tragic, ultimately offering the chance for a redemption we all hope we might have. Reminiscent of Michael Louis Calvillo's best work, LOSING TOUCH is a morality tale that flirts with Horror's "Bizarro" sub-genre without losing either control or its protagonist's humanity. Larsen's novel is a winner not because it shocks or goes for the gross-out (even though it touches on subjects we don't often see), but because it will make you think and feel human. --W.D. Gagliani, Bram Stoker Award®-nominated author of WOLF'S TRAP and SAVAGE NIGHTS
