"Total entertainment . . . one of those roaring new-wave horror novels that has the power to keep the reader hooked from the first few lines." - Whitley Strieber

"A standout! . . . Wonderfully entertaining." - Publishers Weekly

"Engrossing . . . sweeps the reader along." - Los Angeles Times

Golgotha Falls lies in a desolate and blighted valley in northern Massachusetts where, in 1919, Father Bernard K. Lovell, priest of the Church of the Eternal Sorrows, fell prey to isolation and despair and entered a dark night of madness, necrophilia and suicide. Then, in 1978, a Jesuit priest was sent to reconsecrate the church but found himself seized in the foul grip of bestiality. Now Father Malcolm, a saintly priest, has arrived to do battle with the forces of Satan that have possessed the church, while two brilliant scientists of the paranormal from Harvard University have traveled to the site to investigate a century's worth of bizarre happenings. None of them are prepared for what they will encounter - an evil dating back to the dawn of time that could bring about the end of days . . .

In Golgotha Falls (1984), Frank De Felitta, author of the bestselling novels of the occult Audrey Rose (1975) and The Entity (1978), delivers another chilling page-turner of horror and the supernatural. The Entity is also available from Valancourt Books.

About the Author

Frank De Felitta was born in New York in 1921. He served as a pilot in World War II and in 1945 returned to New York, where he began to write scripts. His first effort, for the weekly radio program The Whistler, a popular thriller series, earned him $350 and started him on his writing career. He continued to write radio scripts before turning to television, in which medium he was successful as a writer, producer, and director, winning Emmy nominations in 1963 and 1968 for his documentaries as well as a Peabody Award and several Writers Guild nominations.

De Felitta�s first novel, Oktoberfest (1973), a thriller, though not a bestseller nonetheless earned him enough to finance the year and a half he devoted to his next�and most famous�book, Audrey Rose (1975). This novel, a horror story involving reincarnation, was a smash bestseller, selling more than 2.5 million copies and spawning a successful 1977 film adaptation (scripted by De Felitta) and a sequel, For Love of Audrey Rose (1982). The Entity (1978), based on the real-life case of a woman named Doris Bither who claimed to have been haunted by a spectral rapist, was also a bestseller and was adapted by De Felitta for a 1982 film starring Barbara Hershey. Other successes include the novel Golgotha Falls (1984) and the cult classic horror film Dark Night of the Scarecrow (1981), directed by De Felitta.

Frank De Felitta�s most recent work is L�Opera Italiano, published as an e-book in 2012. He lives in Los Angeles.
