Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Golden delivers...good, old-fashioned storytelling with a contemporary sensibility. There’s no lack of tension, and he doesn’t back away from the consequences of the darkness he has set upon his characters.”—Charles de Lint

“A compulsive read, one I finished in a single sleep-deprived night. The characters are easy to care about, the story unpredictable and involving.”—Poppy Z. Brite

“Low key but quite effective horror.”—Don D’Ammassa

“An intelligent, compelling ghost story in the classic horror tradition...Superior characterization, an exquisitely detailed setting and superbly orchestrated suspense.”—Publishers Weekly

“Tight, focused and almost claustrophobically intimate.”—Fangoria

What People are saying about this

Poppy Z. Brite
The Ferryman is a compulsive read, one I finished in a single sleep-deprived night. The characters are easy to care about, the story unpredictable and involving. Rarest of all, Golden conveys the terrible sadness of the supernatural in a way few authors have managed.
