Edward M. Erdelac in his new book, “Andersonville book coverAndersonville” published by Hydra introduces us to Barclay Lourdes.

From the back cover: Readers of Stephen King and Joe Hill will devour this bold, terrifying new novel from Edward M. Erdelac. A mysterious man posing as a Union soldier risks everything to enter the Civil War’s deadliest prison—only to find a horror beyond human reckoning.

Georgia, 1864. Camp Sumter, aka Andersonville, has earned a reputation as an open sewer of sadistic cruelty and terror where death may come at any minute. But as the Union prisoners of war pray for escape, cursing the fate that spared them a quicker end, one man makes his way into the camp purposefully.

Barclay Lourdes has a mission—and a secret. But right now his objective is merely to survive the hellish camp. The slightest misstep summons the full fury of the autocratic commander, Captain Wirz, and the brutal Sergeant Turner. Meanwhile, a band of shiftless thieves and criminals known as the “Raiders” preys upon their fellow prisoners. Barclay soon finds that Andersonville is even less welcoming to a black man—especially when that man is not who he claims to be. Little does he imagine that he’s about to encounter supernatural terrors beyond his wildest dreams . . . or nightmares.

Andersonville was a prisoner of war camp run by The South during The Civil War. Because of the people who ran it, it was a truly evil place. It was a place that the prisoners wanted to escape from. It was not a place that one entered deliberately nor under an assumed guise. Yet that is exactly what happens here. Barclay has his reasons for being there and he is in for the fight of his life. There is a supernatural element to this story that is woven into the atrocities that were really committed at that camp. And, somehow, it works. Let me put it this way if you are looking for a very exciting read that will keep you guessing as to what will happen next then look no further you have found it. “Andersonville” hits the ground running and does not let you go. Get yourself a soda, make a big bowl of popcorn and settle in as this book is going to have you reading just as fast as you can trying to keep up with what happens next.
