"Unless I'm dreaming, a city guy from Long Island has just delivered an authentic vision of the Old West. Only in Charles Day's West, the ghouls are lurking.

Eric Shapiro, author of THE DEVOTED and STORIES FOR THE END OF THE WORLD
"In THE HUNT FOR THE GHOULISH BARTENDER, the first book in a new YA series chronicling the adventures of Kyle McGertt, Charles Day has written a wonderfully strange western novel, complete with dark mysticism and six-shooters and an overwhelming sense of peril.

Charles Day takes his readers for a thrill ride with this exciting Western tale of horror and magic." ~Chantal Noordeloos, Author of the forthcoming, COYOTE, THE OUTLANDER.
"New territory has been paved within the YA genre, and it's purveyor is Charles Day. Though a relatively short novel, THE HUNT FOR THE GHOULISH BARTENDER is jam-packed with pillage, guns, a wayward saloon, classic heroes, and a bit of blood.
