Hugo cover-4b.jpg


Now Available!

Perry Lake presents new tales of supernatural horror and diabolical terror.


There are Ghouls Amongst Us--goblins and ogres and subhuman creatures that feed on human flesh.


The Series includes--


GOBLINS & GHOULS:  They dwell in the dark places, waiting and watching.  And when the moment is right--they strike!  Included are all-new tales of a certain bell-ringer at Notre Dame and a ghostly phantom beneath the Paris opera house.  And see what happens when ghouls burst forth into the world of today!

HUGO KRANTZ:  Meet Hugo Krantz, scholar, businessman, bon vivant, and devourer of human flesh.  He’s also a big fan of monsters and he searches the world to find them.  And really, what could go wrong with that?  Hugo will encounter other ghouls, diabolical noblemen, sword-wielding actresses, and vampires.  Will he survive?  And with all this going on, can he find love?

And check out my DRACULA and FRANKENSTEIN series too!


Perry Lake lives in Northern California.  FATE Magazine, the Overstreet Monthly, Fantasy Theater, Orion’s Child, Tales of Fantasy, and the prestigious Journal of Dracula Studies, amongst other local and international publications, have presented both his fiction and non-fiction work.  He has also written and illustrated both amateur and professional comic books, and is the creator of the Cassiopeia The Witch series, which ran for over forty issues.

Mr. Lake is a lifelong devotee of world history, geography, and true tales of horror.  Inspired by the works of Bram Stoker, Sheridan LeFanu, Mary Shelley, HP Lovecraft, and countless other masters of supernatural horror, Mr. Lake brings considerable experience and authenticity to his tales of the outré and weird stuff.


“There’s been an amazing revival of interest in recent years in the classics of horror," Lake says, "New motion pictures, television shows, and sequels have appeared about Dracula, the Monster of Frankenstein, and other famous monsters.  While some of these have merit, many of these pastiches trash the original material.


“I try to take these classic characters and go in new and exciting directions, but still respecting and preserving the original.  When you read these books, I think you will agree.”

Perry Lake is a survivor of the 11/8/2018 Paradise fire.  He got out with his laptop and all of his books in electronic form, to continue giving you tales of horror and whimsy for years to come. 



The Lake family appears in several great horror tales. In “Varney the Vampire”, the titular villain troubles the Lake family in England and a Professor Lake taught biology at the Miskatonic University, as seen in H P Lovecraft’s “At the Mountains of Madness”.  Of course, the real Perry Lake is a reservoir in Oklahoma.
