In 1974, the town of Boston Mills, Ohio was turned into a ghost town when the U.S. Department of Interior seized land and condemned homes and properties in order to expand the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. In the years since, mysterious tales and ghost stories have emerged from the area known as “Helltown.” In his novel Helltown Chronicles (Big Table Publishing, 2017), Phil Temples tells the story of newspaper reporters Jerry Wolanski and Susan Wong, who are dispatched to Ohio to write ‘fluff’ Halloween pieces about Helltown. Soon enough, Wolanski and Wong find themselves experiencing first-hand Helltown’s reputation for horror, intrigue, and the supernatural. Temples is a Systems Administrator in the Computer Science Department. He is also the author of The Winship Affair and Machine Feelings.
