“Rife with body horror and hallucinations…the narrative sucks readers into its dark, disorienting world. It’s equal parts moving and gruesome.”—Publishers Weekly

“Chapman has created an experience so anxiety inducing, immersive, and intense that readers will feel like something is actually there, lurking over their shoulder as they turn the pages. A great choice for fans of A Head Full of Ghosts by Paul Tremblay, Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia, and Orphans of Bliss, edited by Mark Matthews.”—Booklist, starred review

“A high anxiety, utterly original, and compelling contemplation of what it means to be haunted.”—Library Journal

“This excellent horror novel examines being addicted to grief and the lengths some go to hang on to those they love.”—Mount Pleasant Daily Tribune

But be warned: follow Chapman down this rabbit hole and you will see dead people.”—Alma Katsu, author of The Fervor

Ghost Eatersis one of those rare horror novels that have everything: a dash of humor, real life demons, complex characters, a heavy dose of the supernatural, and the kind of ending you never forget. This is high-grade horror, and Clay McLeod Chapman is the real deal.”—Gabino Iglesias, author of The Devil Takes You Home

“Clay McLeod Chapman is a weaver of nightmares and Ghost Eaters is his darkest creation yet. A non-stop thrill ride, all you can do is strap in and prepare to be haunted. Chapman is the 21st century’s Richard Matheson. He’s that good.”—Richard Chizmar, New York Times best-selling author of Chasing the Boogeyman

“A quintessential ghost story with a fresh, trippy twist. Chapman weaves hair-raising, goosebump-inducing horror through a sharp exploration of loss, addiction, and grim history. Haunting guaranteed.”—Rachel Harrison, author of Cackle and The Return

“Richly observed, thoroughly entertaining, and incredibly surprising, Ghost Eaters will be the horror novel of 2022 to read. A dark, gripping tale that is by turns snarky, horrifying, and brutal—this book is as good as modern horror gets.”—John Hornor Jacobs, author of A Lush and Seething Hell

“A deeply eerie and evocative portrayal of what it's like to stare into the abyss and find something there waiting for you. A memorable, disquieting ghost story about stories, rendered inside a Möbius strip.”
