New Author Spotlight: Christopher Buehlman

New Author Spotlight is a series designed to introduce authors with up to 3 books in the different SF/F subgenres.

Today's spotlight shines on Christopher Buehlman!

Winner of the 2007 Bridport Prize in Poetry and author of several plays, his novels are:

  • Those Across the River by Christopher Buehlman (Ace)
  • Between Two Fires by Christopher Buehlman (Ace)
Here's the cover copy for Those Across The River:

Haunted by memories of the Great War, failed academic Frank Nichols and his wife have arrived in the sleepy Georgia town of Whitbrow, where Frank hopes to write a history of his family's old estate-the Savoyard Plantation-and the horrors that occurred there. At first their new life seems to be everything they wanted. But under the facade of summer socials and small-town charm, there is an unspoken dread that the townsfolk have lived with for generations. A presence that demands sacrifice.  
It comes from the shadowy woods across the river, where the ruins of the Savoyard Plantation still stand. Where a long-smoldering debt of blood has never been forgotten. Where it has been waiting for Frank Nichols…
