Driven crazy by what he feels is Gods silence, he heads to his churchs East Texas summer camp to massacre 99 kids - one at a time – to bring about Divine Intervention. Among the campers are four 14 year-olds - Phil, Mark, Faith and Maia - who are forced to come of age in the Texas woods, cut off from civilization, as their friends begin dying in horrific fashion, convinced as they are that the Devil has come to Earth and is slaughtering the faithful...Mark Wheaton is a horror screenwriter (FRIDAY THE 13th, THE MESSENGERS), graphic novelist (THE CLEANERS) and author of the bestselling straight-to-Kindle horror novellas, LAST TUESDAY, BONES, NIGHT OF THE SCORPIONS, STUTTERING HUNTER, SPIDER AND OTHER STORIES and SHEPHERD. Two print collections of his work are available as FOUR NAILS IN THE COFFIN (which includes SUNDAY BILLY SUNDAY) and UNNATURAL SELECTION.Praise for SUNDAY BILLY SUNDAY/FOUR NAILS IN THE COFFIN:“Remarkably character-driven…Wheaton rather convincingly showcases his talents as a writer of horror prose, taking his time to craft characters who are thoroughly fleshed out and engaging without holding off too long on the suspense…proves here to be a quite gifted storyteller undeniably worthy of an interested reader’s time and attention.” – Michael Compton, FANGORIA“Genuinely twisted and engrossing…may just leave you shaken for days.” – Jessa Sobczuk, RUE MORGUE“Possibly the best slasher film homage I’ve read.” – Alex Riviello, CHUD.com“Entertaining and pretty original...I thought the reactions of the kids to what was going on were very realistic. Without sliding into a ‘Lord of the Flies’ mode, the author managed to show how different personalities react to stress and crisis. Each of their reactions were true-to-life.” – Red Adept, REDADEPTREVIEWS.com“This is muscular, original fiction that marks the debut of an exciting new voice in the speculative/dark fantasy genre.” - Michael Rowe, editor of the QUEER FEAR anthology series and co-author of TRIPTYCH OF TERROR“This is an outstanding collection of interesting, original horror fantasy fiction…each story bursts with clear, potent visuals and is powered by a relentless narrative drive, yet there’s a definite political/social commentary running through the stories. Wheaton is out to tell a ripping good yarn and he delivers in spades.” – Craig Perry, producer, FINAL DESTINATION I-V“Wheatons writing is haunting. Days, weeks, even months later, you will find your mind returning to his worlds. Stephen King is no longer my only addiction.” – Todd Farmer, screenwriter, MY BLOODY VALENTINE IN 3D, forthcoming DRIVE ANGRY“Wheaton is a magician. He misdirects with accessibility while performing tricks of genius. Don’t try to figure out how he does it – just enjoy the show.” - Gary Dauberman, screenwriter, IN THE SPIDER’S WEB, BLOOD MONKEY
