    About Stephen Gresham


    1. Suspense, supernatural, and young adult fiction writer Stephen Gresham 1947 has been intrigued by the gothic tradition of the South since moving to Auburn, Lee County, in 1975 to take a teaching position at Auburn University This area of Alabama provides the backdrop for his novel The Fraternity 2004 and imbues works such as Rockabye Baby 1984 with the horror and fantasy elements of the southern magic genre that guide him as he writes of supernatural creatures and forces.Gresham was born in Halstead, Kansas, on September 23, 1947, to Chester Gresham, a building contractor, and Helen Kennedy, housewife and wartime riveter He was raised with five brothers Gresham s literary passion was sparked by listening to his grandmother read him everything from comic books to Edgar Allan Poe and watching 1940s B movies by horror film producer Val Lewton Gresham studied journalism for two years at Wichita State University, where he began his professional writing career as a freelance sports reporter at the Wichita Eagle He then transferred to Kansas State Teachers College present day Emporia State University to earn a bachelor s and a master s degree In 1975, he completed a Ph.D in English Renaissance literature at the University of Missouri While in Missouri, Gresham married Linda Duffy in 1969, and the couple had their only child, Aaron, in 1974.In 1975, Gresham joined the English Department at Auburn University as a professor of creative writing By the later 1970s, he had published several pieces of short fiction with two small presses Gresham is drawn to the mythical South and has described east Alabama as an inspirational place Moon Lake, Gresham s first novel, uses such a backdrop to tell the tale of two honeymooners who encounter evil hidden in the water hyacinths on Moon Lake.Gresham s novels have aimed to mesh the supernatural world of ghosts, magic, and witchcraft with the real horrors of places like his boyhood Kansas, with its tornados, polio scares, and threats of nuclear war The most distinctive aspect of his writing is the centrality of unrequited love and the unexpected yet powerful bonds formed by his characters When Teddy, the teenage hero of Haunted Ground, battles ghosts at a neighboring farm, he must also come to terms with his adolescence and the wrath of his dysfunctional family This focus on the destructive innerworkings of families is balanced by a respect for what Gresham refers to as soul families, those united not necessarily by blood but by heart or circumstance Even after Teddy is assaulted by his own brother and neglected by his psychologically unfit mother, he is able to find solace with his cousin Judith, the black sheep of his extended family.Another characteristic of Gresham s books is his attention to research and historical settings In the 1990 novel Blood Wings, Gresham researched the field of cryptozoology to create the massive batlike creature from which the novel gets its title In The Fraternity 2004 , two warring vampire fraternities battle against the backdrop of Depression era America where the only threat greater than the crumbled economy of the Hoover years is the risk of being kidnapped by rival vampires.In addition to the many novels he has published under his own name, Gresham has also written under two pennames to establish a distinct identity between his suspense thrillers and his young adult fiction For the 1994 suspense thriller Primal Instinct, he adopted the name John Newland from the 1950s television series One Step Beyond The next year, he paid homage to director Val Lewton when he published two novels, Just Pretend and Called to Darkness, under the name J V Lewton Gresham s best selling novel to date has been Midnight Boy 1987 , and Haunted Ground 2003 has garnered the most favorable response from readers Reception from readers, especially young ones, has been largely favorable, and he continues to publish thrillers.Gres

    1. Decided to bump up the rating on this one. It's a bit overstuffed, but there are some cool descriptive passages and the characters are actually fairly well-rounded. The mythological aspect and the dark nature/human need forwildness thing is interesting. Won't go into it much because it's well worth a read if you come across it. A sequel would be good, if not a full-blown monster-hunting spinoff series starring one particular cryptozoologist character.

    2. Blood Wings is another exciting outing from author Stephen Gresham who is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors from Zebra's line of horror novels from the 80s and 90s. It is the story of a recently divorced wife who flees her abusive husband with her two songs to a small resort community in the Florida everglades. Once there her eldest son Wade hooks up with a local named Gillie who adventure to into the glades only to end up with one dead. The killer is a mythical beast named Blood Wings [...]

    3. I did not expect this book or author to be good but color me surprised. With brilliant descriptions of the environment and characters as realistic as they are unlikeable, this is a great example of late eighties horror novels.
