The Orphan Palace : A Road Trip to Madness
Cardigan is heading east through the night-bleak cities of America and back to confront the past he has never escaped, as a resident of Zimms, an orphanage-cum-asylum and a true palace of dementia. In the circles and dead-ends that make the maze of his madness, Cardigan meets bounty hunters, ghosts, ghouls, a talking rat, even a merman, and struggles to decide which will lead him to damnation and which to salvation.

`The prose of Joe Pulver can take its place with that of the masters of our genre - E.A. Poe, H.P. Lovecraft, Ramsey Campbell, Thomas Ligotti - while his imaginative reach is something uniquely his own.` - S.T. Joshi **** `While everybody else in horror is still aping the shallow visual palette of cinema, Joe Pulver calls down a storm of psychotronic nightmares charged with the evocative depth and relentless pulse of the Devil's music.` - Cody Goodfellow
