Tour Page: American Ghoul by Walt Morton (Oct. 19-30)


Welcome to the page for American Ghoul by Walt Morton! This is a mature young adult paranormal dark fantasy novel.

The author says “American Ghoul is a celebration of the entire dark fantasy genre. I was influenced by everybody from H.P. Lovecraft to Japanese horror movies. The book celebrates every teenager in a horror film over the last fifty years and is accurate to the way real teenagers talk about sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll. It’s a fun story.” – Walt Morton

americalghoul.474About the Book:

Seventeen-year-old Howard Pickman has some unusual problems: He comes from a family of ghouls with a long history of digging up corpses, and he’s just moved to a new school filled with kids that are scarier than he is. American Ghoul is the story of an exceptionally odd teenager trying to survive the most terrible time anybody has to go through — senior year at high school.

“A gloriously macabre young-adult tale about the difficulties of being a teenage ghoul in the 1970s. Once readers dig up this clever supernatural story, they likely won’t want to put it down.” – KIRKUS REVIEWS

“Anyone wanting a refreshing story with a young voice full of humor and teenage angst, yet with all the Gothic trappings that have kept the genre popular for over two centuries, give American Ghoul a try! – SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER

“I admire Morton’s story-telling ability, his macabre descriptions and his dark treatment of the high school experience from a teenager with a terrible secret. There were moments that chilled me to the bone, but kept me turning the pages to follow Howard’s journey from outsider to anti-hero.” – JACKSONVILLE NAVIGATOR

About the Author:Walt Morton

Walt Morton is a writer, photographer, and artist. AMERICAN GHOUL, his debut novel, has been called “The Tom Sawyer of horror fiction.”
With this book he is continuing a decade-long exploration into weird tales via photography, film, painting and writing. Walt has lectured at the British Film Institute and studied intensively in five martial arts.
A complete biography of his exploits and interests would be so shocking, improbable and incredible that modesty demands “the less said the better.” He would like to thank Jane Austen, who coined that “less said the better” idea. AMERICAN GHOUL is his first of several books that reinvent the supernatural horror genre. Born and raised in rural Pennsylvania, he now lives in California.
His upcoming novels in 2015 and 2016 will include works in horror, science-fiction, and detective genres.
