Cheering on C.D. Gallant-King's Latest!
I've been a wee bit distracted and almost missed the party, but fellow IWSG Anthology writer C.D. Gallant-King has just launched book two of his funny, goofy, YA Gale Harbour horror series. But better late than never, especially to a series with such great titles. Remember Book One? Psycho Hose Beast From Outer Space now has company in the strangest little town in Canada.
Newfoundland, Canada, 1993.
It's been a year since a handful of kids defeated the Psycho Hose Beast in the sleepy town of Gale Harbour, Newfoundland. Our heroes have entered into the era of rollerblades, Super Nintendo and oversized plaid shirts… unless you’re a goth, then it’s the era of Maybelline eyeliner, boots with too many buckles, and infected safety-pin piercings.
Thirteen-year-old Niall O'Neil is navigating a blossoming relationship with his crush, Harper Jeddore. Unfortunately, the power that allowed them to defeat the monster from the deep is still within them, and they are no closer to understanding or controlling it. When just touching your girlfriend can kill innocent bystanders, it complicates the already precarious practice of teenage dating.
But lurking in the backdrop of teenage romance, a sinister power is growing in Gale Harbour, and dangerous people are turning up in the small town with possibly deadly intentions.
Will the kids defeat this new threat? What did the US Air Force leave in the abandoned Hansen Air Force base? What is a space-surfing butt monkey? And most importantly—will anyone get to touch a boob?

“An entertaining story peppered with dashes of nineties nostalgia, snappy one liners and perfectly-captured teenage angst…” – Damien Larkin, author of Big Red
“Gutsy, original, and savagely fun.” – Samuel Gately, author of The Fire Eye Refugee
“Don’t let the title fool you into thinking this is fluff… themes of age, memory, and history are woven through on multiple levels, from one end of the character continuum to the other.” – Joey Madia, Editor for NewMystics.com
“I would put him at the top of the list of Canadian horror humor authors, as soon as I find some more so I can actually make a list.” – Patrick LeClerc, author of Out of Nowhere
