Overview

When a late night storm drives a young couple to take refuge in an old abandoned mansion, it isn't long before they discover that they've entered the lair of 999 haunts who are in no way happy to see them. In the madness that follows, Tom and Carol are separated and on their own; and as they feverishly seek for one another among the endless halls and countless rooms they must also avoid getting caught by the denizens of this dark abode - half of which are dying to have them for dinner and the other half seek to banish them to the Netherworld forever and take dominion of our physical world. Will they escape the clutches of the terrifying Mdm. Leota and her nasty daughter, or will they become permanent residents in the realm of the disembodied?

Originally published in 2002 as "a paragraph a day" project in the forum of a fan website, Cunningham has cleverly pieced together and re-formed the story into a full length novel which fans have praised as suitable for the big screen. Full of thrills, chills, laughs, and even hidden Haunted Mansion trivia that only the most diehard Mansion fan will catch, this story, in the literary prerogative of the author, leans more on the darker and "grown up" perspective of the famous theme park attraction. In Walt's day it would have garnished a PG rating. Nevertheless, it is not as explosively controversial as the racist, sexist, polygamous, adulterous and necrophilial themes found in Disney's own motion picture about the beloved Mansion.
