Evil Lurks Beneath The Surface- ‘Centralia: Epicenter’ Arrives On Halloween

by Brendan M. Allen

Evil has a network beneath Earth’s surface and its name is Centralia.

This Halloween, six writers conspire to explore supernatural mystery and horror in six towns that share the name Centralia. Brian Keene, Michael Patrick Hicks, Adam Cesare, Brian Quinn, Heath Amodio, and Cullen Bunn come together to bring these stories to life in Centralia: Epicenter

‘The United States is home to twelve towns of varying sizes called Centralia, where thousands of people live, never realizing that supernatural forces are aligning against them. Strange events have occurred in one Centralia or another since the 1800’s, but these events are growing more intense with every passing day. A powerful, malevolent force prepares to unleash its evil upon the world through Centralia gateways located in New York, Missouri, West Virginia, Kansas, Texas, and Washington.’

The anthology presents six prose stories, six unique supernatural mysteries, six fictionalized versions of Centralia towns, and six unlikely heroes standing against burgeoning darkness. 

Readers will meet a necromancer who carries a secret the Lords of the Dead will kill to protect, an ex-special forces combat magician, a clockwork robot detective, a professor of occult studies who refuses to stand idly by when evil rears its ugly head, a blind psychic who sees through her grandmother’s eyes, and a martial artist with an affinity for cryptids.

This collection is planned as the first in a series of shared world anthologies, with each volume presenting new tales of horror, mystery, and suspense. The characters that survive this first volume will interact and partner up in future adventures, eventually leading up to the ultimate confrontation with the supernatural evil force growing just under the surface of our world. 

Look for Centralia: Epicenter on October 31, 2020 on Kindle and in print through Amazon.
