SHILOH is on the Long Fiction Preliminary Ballot for the 2018 Bram Stoker Award:
For two days in the year 1862, the bloodiest battle of the American Civil War held theater in southern Tennessee – a patch of land called Shiloh. Thousands of soldiers on both sides of the conflict lost their lives, and tens of thousands more were badly injured.
For twin brothers Henry and William, infantry soldiers in the Confederate Army, the battle held more than the horrors of war. It was a portal to something beyond mankind, where demons tread and angels fly, where the spilling of blood brings not only death, but eternal damnation.
“Read SHILOH (cause it’s fantastic…) and then treat yourself to SODA JERK. It’s an instant classic.” — Josh Malerman
“In Shiloh, Fracassi’s powerful, precise writing immerses the reader in the savage brutality of a Civil War battle – an exquisitely harrowing precursor to the strange horror of the tale. A masterful, mad charge into the weird.” — Jeffrey Ford
“…a perfect reading experience” — This Is Horror
“…an exciting, terrifying blend of history, military, and horror fiction.” — Hellnotes
“Shiloh gazes into the darkness and horrors of war and discovers an even deeper threat that dwells just beyond the veil of reality.” — Ink Heist
“Shiloh is chilling, atmospheric, and wonderfully written.” — Unnerving Magazine
“Balancing action and atmosphere, the horror of war and supernatural horror, is where Fracassi really shines in this work.” — Signal Horizon
“I’ve been telling anyone who will listen that Fracassi is already at the level of Night Shift-era Stephen King. These two stories are solid evidence of that.” — Matthew M. Bartlett, author of Creeping Waves
“…passages are brutal, vividly describing the horrors of warfare and the damage human beings can do to one another and are not for the faint of heart… a marvelous piece of writing and is, in my opinion, the author’s best work to date.” — Dark Musings UK
“…an impressive vision of hell on earth by an accomplished literary craftsman.” — S.P. Miskowski, author of I Wish I Was Like You
“…visceral, realistic, atmospheric, noisy and brutal…a brief but very enjoyable read from one of the best writers of short horror fiction in the business.” — The Ginger Nuts of Horror
SHILOH was published in April, 2018 by Lovecraft eZine Press, in trade paperback and eBook.
