The Orphan Palace by Joseph S Pulver

Monday, November 14, 2011

Following closely on the heels of Joseph S. Pulver's unsettling short story collection, Sin & Ashes, his latest effort has appeared in the form of The Orphan Palace. This new Chomu Press novel melds the nightmarish fantasies originated by authors like H.P. Lovecraft and Robert W. Chambers with Pulver's unmistakeable mind tripping. Fire, terror, and fringe characters come together maniacally in this genre bending storm.

Horror is exactly what most Pulver fans are after, and rightfully so, since he is a trustworthy master of it. His latest novel gives his devotees exactly what they are looking for – whether they know it or not. Like a blood stained Santa Clause, he knows how to gift words that are concealed knives, balancing a multi-verse of hells for maximum impact.

This book brings together otherworldly threats with the all too real underworlds of seedy orphanages, arson, and murder. Pulver makes us question realities, and wonder whether a parcel of our non-fiction world bears a resemblance to his madhouse built on pillars of untarnished horrors.

The Orphan Palace is a strong and swift descent into jarring lunacy, with hell spawned characters who are guaranteed to haunt the mind long after the pages go untouched. Pick up a copy, if you want to surrender to the entanglements of dark illusion and visceral frights.
