My book is coming out in paperback 5/14!

“Damnation Island should be your page-turning horror read for the summer. Horn’s book is uniquely arranged almost like a guide book, venturing from one institution to the next, discovering intimate stories of mayhem and malfeasance more unbelievable than the last.” —The Bowery Boys Podcast

“Teeter-tottering between a history textbook and a murder mystery, Stacy Horn’s Damnation Island is fast moving and entrenched in detail … What’s even more horrifying—it’s all real.” —BUST

  1. Congratulations! Your new paperback is every bit as beautiful as the hardcover! Although what’s inside the cover is the best–one of my favorites of your books. (Although I love all your books, so it’s hard to pick a favorite.)
