A writer gone missing and fiction becomes real when things appear from his books. A gateway to another world, and an old story.
The hebrew letter CHET. A boy and his friends try to figure out the author's disappearance and why do monsters keep on appearing, along with the woman in black whispering from the shadows. ( )

When Eddie moves to a new town, he is excited to discover that it was the hometown of his favorite author: Nathaniel Olmstead. Pretty soon though, the horrible creatures Olmstead created in his books begin to show up around town and Eddie has a bad feeling about what happened to Olmstead. As he and his friends race against the horrors of their small town, they must also make sure new creatures are not created.

This book was definitely creepy - although it's listed for 9-12, I think older kids would enjoy it more. It has the feeling of almost possible to it, which makes it that much more enjoyable! ( )

Eddie Fennicks has always been a loner, content to lose himself in a mystery novel by his favorite author, Nathaniel Olmstead. That’s why moving to the small town of Gatesweed becomes a dream come true when Eddie discovers that Olmstead lived there before mysteriously disappearing thirteen years ago. Even better, Eddie finds a handwritten, never-before-seen Nathaniel Olmstead book printed in code and befriends Harris, who’s as much an Olmsteady as he is. But then the frightening creatures of Olmstead’s books begin to show up in real life, and Eddie’s dream turns into a nightmare. ( )
