About this title


Batforth was a quiet little town like a hundred other quiet little towns. Then the terror came like a shroud closing over it. For one man the new Batforth meant a hideous death. For a young housewife it meant instant insanity. The terror came to a police sergeant when his car ploughed into a crowd of children - children who did not exist. For a nurse at Batforth Hospital it began when she felt something touch her in the hospital's drug cupboard, something evil, and grew with the knowledge that even in an empty room eyes were watching her.
For John Hammond, editor of Batforth's newspaper, it began in strange dreams and visions and he came to understand that the horror was growing, spreading day by day: that something malevolent had come to Batforth and that it would have to be destroyed.
As the death toll mounted and the horror gained a grip on the town he began his search ... for the Unholy.

From Library Journal:

In this first novel, a mysterious train derailment in a small English village sets off a series of gruesome murders, which local police attribute to a maniac. Newspaper editor Jon Hammond begins to examine the nightmares and visions that he and others are experiencing, and finds himself battling a vicious supernatural force unleashed in the wreck. The somewhat familiar-sounding plot may seem to have been lifted from a lurid grade B movie thriller, especially when the source of evil is traced to the grisly contents of a metal box thrown from the train. But in Anderson's capable hands the reader is swept into a fast-paced and suspenseful horror novel with frequent chills and shudders. Suspend your disbelief willingly, and you'll have a good time. For popular fiction collections. Eric W. Johnson, Univ. of Bridgeport Lib., Conn.

Store Description

Rare Reads formerly operated a storefront in The Lakewood Antiques Gallery in Atlanta, Georgia but reverted to a strictly online operation when the Gallery closed. In 2006, Rare Reads published "The Heeey Baby Days of Beach Music" which received a bronze medal from The Independent Publishers Association. Long sold out, copies of the 13 pound tribute to the musicians who created the unique R&B genre are occasionally available on ABE. The book was a collaborative effort of Rare Reads and many others including the musicians that created the sound Southerns term "Beach Music." Rare Reads is considering future publications in addition to expanding its online enterprise. Rare Reads is operated by Greg Haynes and son Reid Haynes and has warehouses in Atlanta and Athens, Georgia.
