Five suburban mall rats and a washed up Goth singer find themselves stranded in the Pine Barrens of New Jersey where they discover two horrifying truths: The Jersey Devil, hellspawn of folklore and legend, is real; and New Jersey (as many already suspected) is the gateway to Hell! With the help of one lone witch, this small group must face off against their deepest fears and the most unholy monsters in a battle where their very souls, the world they live in, and any chance of returning to Hot Topic in one piece is at stake! The first novel by musician and horror media personality, Aurelio Voltaire, Call of the Jersey Devil is a hilarious and terrifying homage to 80s horror and genre films. Like a mad doctor, Voltaire has Frankensteined together elements of Evil Dead, The Breakfast Club, Poltergeist, and This is Spinal Tap to create a creature feature that will have you laughing out loud when you're not glancing nervously over your shoulder.

In the course of its extraordinary history, the Jersey Devil has been exorcised, shot, electrocuted, declared officially dead, and scoffed as foolishness--none of which has had any effect on it or the people who persist in seeing it!This mysterious creature is said to prowl the lonely sand trails and mist-shrouded marshes of the Pine Barrens, and emerge perioducally to rampage through the towns and cities of New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania, leaving many communities in near-hysteria.The authors show that while a few appearances have been out-right fraud and others have likely been the result of mass hysteria, this creature has been seen by enough sane, sober, and responsible citizens to keep the possiblity of its existence alive and tantalizing.Over 50,000 in print

Normally one would expect a brief biography of the author on the back cover of his or her book, but in this case I can offer the reader very little information about Eric Leeds. As an editor of a good sized publishing house, I wouldn't be expected to know all of our authors well. But I can honestly say that I've met and spoken with most of the writers we publish. I've gotten to know a few better than others and in cases where friendship has developed I've gotten to know those writers quite well. This is not the case with the author of this book though. Mr. Leeds remands as much a mystery to me now, as he was on the day we met. Mr. Leeds appeared in my office late one evening a few years ago. We spoke briefly. He left his manuscript. I didn't get around to reading his work until some time later. When I finally got the chance to pick it up, I heard from Eric again. He called me on the phone, just as I was turning the last page. I must say, the timing of his call was quite startling. I met him one more time after that. All I can say about Eric Leeds is that he is a very interesting man.Salvaje OrquideaThe truth of life is always where you seek it.Find the secret in these words and then agree to keep it.www.americandemons.com

In 1735, Samuel and Deborah Leeds unleashed a horrific abomination upon the world of men. For nearly two hundred years, the legend of the Jersey Devil has haunted the people of Burlington, New Jersey, and the surrounding Pine Barrens. The year is now 1984, and the monster that was released by Samuel Leeds is back. After the horrific deaths of fourteen-year-old Deirdre Cheek and twenty-year-old Harvey Kramer in this quiet, close-knit town, Raef Lorenz, a former priest turned investigator into the supernatural for the Church of Rome, is sent to Burlington to investigate the killings and the reappearance of the Jersey Devil. As the killings and carnage continue, Lorenz uncovers a sinister plot by the demonic offspring of Samuel and Deborah Leeds. With the help of Kerri Wright, the daughter of local sheriff Andy Wright, Lorenz eludes a group of devil-worshipping bikers and fights against satanic assassins on his way to discovering the truth behind the most recent appearance of the creature. Armed only with knowledge, Lorenz becomes caught in the middle of a struggle between heaven and hell with the fate of mankind resting on his shoulders.
