HE HAS MANY NAMES SYNOPSIS
When struggling author and paranormal podcaster Noelle Blackwood gets the opportunity of a lifetime to ghostwrite for a bestselling thriller author for a large sum of money, it seems almost too good to be true. The only catch is that she has to stay at The Oralia hotel until she is done. Method becomes madness as she falls deeper and deeper down the rabbit hole of her own story and the demons it awakens. He Has Many Names by Drew Chial is a fresh spin on the Faustian bargain, a deal with the devil story in the age of artistic desperation.
PRAISE FOR HE HAS MANY NAMES
“If Clive Barker and Brian Keene wrote a book in one creepy ass hotel!”
-Jeff Burk, Head Editor of Deadite Press
“A love letter to Stephen King and Satan from a new and exciting voice in horror.”
-Christoph Paul, Author of Horror Film Poems
“As an interviewer Leza has a talent for drawing out honed artistic statements and intimate details from her guests. She effortlessly navigates the professional, the personal, and in this case the paranormal. We discuss the sleep paralysis I experienced throughout my childhood, the shadow demons looming at the foot of my bed and how I tried to cry out in terror. I never thought I’d get tipsy and joke about it all these years later. It was strangely fun deconstructing the neuroscience behind waking hallucinations with Leza as we unpacked the archetypes that make our minds see demons.”
