Orphan Rock, that little sunset town in the middle of the Ghost River Nation.
Locals call the land haunted.
Wiser folk call it cursed.
Whatever the case may be, something evil’s stirring under the dirt.
This is the story about the folks who still live out there.
And the dead ones too.
Part horror, part American magical realism, Chad Ryan’s Ghost River is a dark, gritty, and desolate journey into the peaks and gulches of the human spirit.
Chad Ryan lives in the Arizona badlands. He grew up running in the arid mountains, catching lizards and scorpions in a burgeoning suburb next to an Indian Reservation.
He is a managing partner of Lost Boys Press, an independent publisher of daring fiction (lostboyspress.com). He also runs the substack Broken Window, and his blog: writingiswar.com
When not writing dark, spooky, or fantastical tales, he enjoys fitness, craft beer, rock music, and video games.
