Eric Leittenabout this book: Growing up in Western New York, I was infatuated with Iroquois lore, particularly the haunted ground of a place called Ga'hai Hill, translated as "Witch Light Hill" from the Seneca language. The name stems from the illuminated orbs that have been seen around the hill at night—the locals do not like to speak of this place.
In my story "Mask of Flies", a gifted Seneca woman connects with the hill through a cursed warding mask found on a pilgrimage. Unwillingly, she becomes a catalyst for the forces residing there to spill into our world.
The story took me over four years to write, and I found the writing process provided catharsis in the battling of my own demons.
For all fans of horror that are entertaining reading this book, I think you should. Of course, I'm a bit bias, but it's a good story nonetheless. Examining the duality of life and death and the inevitable destruction that is threaded through us all is an underlying theme of the story. The rooted in Seneca lore provided the perfect vehicle to deliver some heavy content in this arena.
