What if there was a book that literally opened up doorways to other worlds? Where would it lead, and could you handle what you found on the other side?
Cassie, a wayward teen, is about to find out. One day, after she wraps up community service at a local hospital, she stumbles out of the basement of a spooky bookshop and into a story set on a devil's staircase in a remote Italian village.

INTERVIEW: Christopher Golden
"Writing is about the beautiful melancholy of small town America..."
On today's Dark Tome, a special interview with Christopher Golden, the award-winning, bestselling author of such novels as The Myth Hunters, Wildwood Road, The Boys Are Back in Town, The Ferryman, Strangewood, Of Saints and Shadows, and (with Tim Lebbon) The Map of Moments. He has also written books for teens and young adults, including Poison Ink, Soulless, and the thriller series Body of Evidence, honored by the New York Public Library and chosen as one of YALSA’s Best Books for Young Readers. Upcoming teen novels include a new series of hardcover YA fantasy novels co-authored with Tim Lebbon and entitled The Secret Journeys of Jack London. He edited the collection DARK DUETS in which we discovered the JOE R LANSDALE and KASEY LANSDALE team up, “BLIND LOVE,” and penned his own short story collection, TELL MY SORROW TO THE STONES, where we found the story we adapted for Episode 3 - “BREATHE MY NAME”. We talk to him today about the writer’s life, working in multi-media and the future of audio storytelling.
