That's right, folks! My second novel of horror, People of the Ethereal Realm, is now available in trade paperback from Post Mortem Press. I'm very excited about this release. I hope those of you who decided to read the book have a good time with it, and, of course, I hope you will be kind enough to leave your comments in an amazon or goodreads review. Word of mouth is so damn important for us struggling authors.
Barbara comes to Adam at night while his wife is working the graveyard shift

Gerald lives a lonely life in the Boulevard, a ghetto on the wrong side of

destroy anyone and anything that gets in her way? Can she bring two men from
different backgrounds together for her bidding? How many people will have to

"Robert Essig's voice is a beautiful thing. He wields it like a handcrafted baseball bat, and People of the Ethereal Realm is Essig at his finest, with a story that hits hard but leaves pretty scars."

"People of the Ethereal Realm is a wicked tale of possession and mayhem that is sure to unnerve the most seasoned horror fan! It's original, frightening, and very creepy! A ghost tale with razor sharp teeth! I loved it!"
--David Bernstein, author of Damaged Souls and Machines of the Dead
