The House Eaters, a novel by Aaron Polson

Nick Gillingham knew moving before his senior year would suck... but he never imagined a nightmare like Broughton’s Hollow. It’s bad enough Nick hears disembodied voices after moving near “the House”—a crumbling relic with a sinister past. But then the local football team decides to make him their new tackling dummy, the queen of the school starts manipulating him for her own nefarious purposes, and his parents’ marriage falls apart.

When Nick’s elderly neighbor hints whatever lurks within “the House” might be the cause of his troubles, he sets out to uncover the truth behind the local Indian legend of the “Eating Monster.” Nick will to have to rely on a band of social outcasts from school—and his loony kid sister—to put his life and family back together again. But even if he survives a close encounter with “the House,” Nick will still need to find a date for the homecoming dance.

"The quaint new-kid-in-town core of The House Eaters is only a ruse. Polson lures us in with this charming detail only to slam the door behind us, turn out the lights and watch us tremble in the dark. Brilliantly paced, The House Eaters turns the haunted house concept on its head with a style and brilliant cast of characters rarely found in today's dark fiction. The House Eaters is a treat for the young adult audience and horror aficionados alike." - Barry Napier, author of Masks of Our Fathers

"Check your doors, and when you're satisfied that you have neither too many nor too few, allow Aaron Polson to tell you the nightmarish tale he has weaved around a Native American legend." - Cate Gardner, author of Strange Men in Pinstripe Suits and Other Curious Things
