PUBLISHER: Suntup Editions
EDITION: Classic Edition (signed by Jonathan Edward Durham and Maura OConnor)
What would you do if your favorite childhood story turned out to be real? In the case of Winterset Hollow, you might run because the dark truth behind a beloved classic could be your undoing. A uniquely original debut novel by Jonathan Edward Durham, Winterset Hollow is a fantasy-gone-mad that seamlessly blends horror and dark humor in a tale of unrelenting vengeance.
Winterset Hollow follows a group of friends to the place that inspired their favorite book—a timeless tale about a tribe of animals preparing for their yearly end-of-summer festival. But after a series of shocking discoveries, they find that much of what the world believes to be fiction is actually fact, and that the truth behind the tale is darker and more dangerous than they ever imagined. It’s Barley Day… and you’re invited to the hunt.
Winterset Hollow was first published on September 1, 2021, and soon earned the praise of critics and peers alike. Author Diana Gabaldon called it, “one of the most interesting books I’ve read in years…astonishingly powerful and multi-layered.” Kirkus Reviews praised the novel as “an engaging and energetically written literary horror story,” while Indies Today proclaimed it “a symphonic masterpiece of literature…an exquisite blend of horror, suspense, and fantasy.”
An Amazon bestseller, Winterset Hollow reached the #2 spot on their horror charts and remained in the top ten for several months. This is the first signed limited edition of the novel.
