About this title


Something is very wrong at The Promethean, New York's newest and most exclusive address, home to some of the country's biggest celebrities. Exceedingly nasty things are happening. Malevolent ghosts? Marauding aliens? Demonic possession? Something even stranger? Whatever it is, the residents are dying in horrible ways. Soon the media is calling the place Freak House, and everyone wants to know what is going on. Gibbs, a newspaper reporter and Ellie Skye, a paranormal investigator especially want to know, convinced that the answer lies in the little patch of history the building is sitting on. Lives are on the line, and even reputations! Seldom has horror been so amusingly described. Set at the end of the second second-Bush Administration, when it often seemed that the country had slipped through an inter-dimensional chink into a real-life horror show, Freak House is a trenchant send-up of a time when crazy was in fashion.

About the Author:

James Cortese grew up in Massachusetts, earned a Ph.D. at the University of Wisconsin, settled for a time in Ohio and Silicon Valley, and now lives in Houston. He is the author of an award-winning book of fables called "What the Owl Said," as well as many published short stories and articles on film—his other passion besides writing and computers. He has worked as a college professor, short-order cook, book editor, operating room orderly, professional student, librarian, and executive speechwriter for high-tech companies that had an annoying habit of going out of business. As a young child, his dream was to be a firefighter. Later, once he learned to read and write, he realized his true vocation wasn't putting out fires but starting them.
