About the Author

He is the co-creator of two cult favorite comic book series, Baltimore and Joe Golem: Occult Detective. He is also the editor of such anthologies as Seize the Night, The New Dead, and Dark Cities, and the co-host of the popular podcast "Three Guys with Beards." He lives in Massachusetts.


"This novel shines. Golden's frenzied tale of demons and exorcisms is fast-paced, his portrayal of the insidiousness of possession is unsettling and it all comes together in a thrilling closing act." - New York Times

"Golden evokes chills without relying on clichés and makes suspending disbelief easy through skillful characterizations of the leads. Horror fans should check this out." - Publishers Weekly

"Christopher Golden is one of those rare writers with range and consistency. I'll follow him anywhere. From its eerie, exotic setting to its claustrophobic creepiness, The House of Last Resort delivers!" - Michael Koryta, NYT bestselling author

"The king of horror thrillers does it again. With this thoroughly modern exorcism story, Golden will make you believe in the existence of true evil." -Alma Katsu, author of The Fervor

"In The House of Last Resort, Golden builds an idyllic dream world, gently lulling you into an illusion of well-being before springing the trap--ensnaring the reader and dragging you down into the hellish depths hiding beneath the facade; a burning abyss jam-packed with enough ghosts and demons and rat-infested corpses that you'll fidget and squirm even as you feverishly turn the pages in wide-eyed, glorious terror. It's a helluva ride!" - Philip Fracassi, author of Boys in the Valley

"An absolute ripper of a fire-and-brimstone, capital-H Horror novel. I tore through it so fast my fingertips bled. Which probably summoned the book's demons." -Daniel Kraus, author of Whalefall

"Golden has never been better. The hot streak that started with Road of Bones blazes out of control through this stellar, terrifying, and richly layered haunted house story." - Gretchen Felker-Martin, author of Manhunt and Cuckoo

"Dark, eerie, full of dread, each page exudes menace-I couldn't put it down. Part of me remains in The House of Last Resort long after I closed the book." -Catriona Ward, author of Looking Glass Sound

"When it comes to high concept terror, few can craft it as expertly as Christopher Golden. With The House of Last Resort, Golden sweeps you up in the wonder and joy of a couple's romantic move across the globe, only to pull back the curtain to reveal a new-gothic, suspenseful dark side that will have you turning pages in a fever. You'll lose sleep from this book, in the best way possible." - Alex Segura, bestselling author of Secret Identity
