New From Anxiety Press: Braddock’s Falls
Anxiety Press is pleased to announce the release of: Braddock’s Falls by Jim Towns
All Tom Bosco wants to do is spend a relaxing summer at Braddock’s Falls Nudist Resort, where he can write his newest fantasy novel. But serial killer Winston Conroe has other plans.
Now, between running an ongoing role-playing campaign and erotic encounters with his beautiful new girlfriend Natalie, Tom must help protect his newfound nudist friends from a deranged killer hell-bent on punishing the wickedness he believes goes on at Braddock’s Falls.
Author and filmmaker Jim Towns takes you on a journey that could never be filmed today: a story of freedom, love, fantasy, sex and chainsaws set deep in the mountains of Western Pennsylvania.
“At times tongue in cheek and others edge of your seat - Towns delivers a marvelous Stephen King meets Dan Fante horror crime thriller that is essential summer reading for all freaky bibliophiles.”
— Stephen J. Golds, author of Always the Dead
