Author Peter N. Dudar’s debut novel, A Requiem for Dead Flies, was released by Nightscape Press on June 19.
A brief synopsis of the novel:
After their mother’s miscarriage, Lester and Gordon MacAuley were sent to Battle View Farm to stay with their grandmother for the summer. But the house on Battle View Farm has a haunting secret. As Grandma Vivian slowly slipped into madness, the brothers’ lives became entangled in mortal danger. That summer of terror left them scarred and plagued by the family’s dark secret. Now, years later, the MacAuley brothers have returned with dreams of breathing new life into Battle View Farm. But living in the house on Battle View Farm, they are forced to face their past and solve the mystery that began generations ago. And to face the ghosts that still haunt their family’s legacy. A legacy written in dead flies.
Dudar’s writing isn’t new to the New England Horror Writers since his story, “Church of Lightning and Thunder,” was included in the NEHW’s first anthology, Epitaphs, which was published last October.
