Where the city fathers perform secret rites with the goat headed masters of the dark Do you seek the Real Leeds Venture out to a secluded spot turn on your radio and spin that dial down to the murky low numbers somewhere just around 879 That music that voice calling on the edge of static and distortion it might lead you to. Well hell Matthew M Bartlett went and managed to top Gateways to Abomination Collected Short Fiction my favorite book of 2014 I liked it so much that I published a limited edition chapbook from Bartlett in 2015 Rangel sold out uickly and the story was selected for inclusion in Year s Best Weird Fiction Vol 3 Rangel is also reprinted in Creeping Waves and I m very pleased people will get to read and be creeped out by it Creeping Waves has many of the 1 3 page vignettes that made Gateways to Abomination so surreal and affecting and it also has some longer stories I was going to say meatier stories but felt a little sick when that phrase came to mind in connection with this book Trust me you ll see The longer stories are just as suirmy and creepy as the vignettes Time periods and characters shift and intertwine with a cohesive narrative developing as it goes Taken together it all fills in some of the sinister past and present of devil haunted Leeds MA and its unnervingly horrid radio station WXXT Everything builds up to a trip to Real Leeds and oh the sights you will see there Bartlett s style is a uniue blend at times almost darkly whimsical while still making your skin crawl and your guts churn He has a gift for descriptive prose that is on par with Thomas Ligotti in being beautiful and repulsive and absolutely enthralling all at once and Creeping Waves is an exemplar of that particular emotional space Witch cults body horror bizarre history desecrations goats doom if these words catch your interest read this book NOW

SUMMARY Creeping Waves

Creeping Waves

That blasted and damned path toward the Real and Truest heart of Leeds Massachusetts This is WXXT It's the witching hour when shadows take wing and nightmares stalk Turn your radio up Point your antennas to the infinite sky And stay tuned for Weather on the Sixes WXXT The bubbling blisters on the tongue of the Pioneer Valley. Bartlett s short collection Gateways to Abomination offered tantalizing sanguinary glimpses of Leeds Massachusetts under the diabolical sway of flagitious radio broadcasts from WXXT I devoured Gateways in a single sitting marveling at Bartlett s supple vivid prose In thrall but my bloodthirst unslaked I desperately wanted to know of Leeds its denizens and its occulted history Creeping Waves delivers on the promise of Gateways in fact it exceeded my expectations and raised the bar for the entire genre Bartlett here expands and deepens his vision of Leeds a kaleidoscopic paroxysm of tales and anecdotes and gory bits of Leeds lore gradually resolving but not uite snapping into focus It s clear that there is much much of Leeds to explore and once again I am left yearning to return Bartlett s readers are in the hands of a true master of his craft He s working real magic here

Where is the real Leeds How does one get there Is it floating on the air words and music you can almost reach out and grab like wriggling worms of sound and ether Is it in the carnival that seethes under the corrupted church drawing the lost along shadowy corridors and through the strangely angled Funhouse doors to the place. To my way of thinking I have read pretty much all of Matthew M Bartlett s to this point that I have been able to get my hands on and all of it these last couple of monthsWith Creeping Waves subtitled Broadcasts and Blasphemies the author has given us an amazing amount of reading containing much of his previous output such as the much sought after Rangle and portions of the impossible to find self published chapbook Anne Gar s Rare Book and Ephemera Catalog 945493 HMr Bartlett has in a relatively short span of time created a mythology rivaling authors who have spent a lifetime creating their work Of all the work by Mr Bartlett that I have read there has not been a single letdown or inferior fragment of work In his introduction to this collection Nathan Ballingrud states You ve come here for a horror story and what you get is one of the purest and most audacious expressions of horror in the modern day The writing here is truly transgressive literatureEverything that has been written by Mr Bartlett manages to tie together in one solid picture of the evil possible in the town of Leeds or in its most subtle voice WXXT broadcasts Within the stories you will encounter missing children and lost souls cult leaders reaping their vile rewards bloody and evil events that take the reader just a step too far This is an astounding accomplishmentThis copy is signed and inscribed by Matthew M Bartlett
