The Poseidon’s Children project also reunited Michael with his Cinema of Shadows editor, Amanda DeBord.
In Poseidon’s Children, man no longer worships the old gods; forgotten and forsaken, they have become nothing more than myth and legend. But all that is about to change. After the ruins of a vast, ancient civilization are discovered on the ocean floor, Coast Guard officers find a series of derelict ships drifting in the current–high-priced yachts and leaking fishing boats, all ransacked, splattered in blood, their crews missing and presumed dead.
And that’s just the beginning.
Vacationing artist Larry Neuhaus has just witnessed a gruesome shark attack, a young couple torn apart right before his eyes … at least, he thinks it was a shark. And when one of these victims turns out to be the only son of Roger Hays, the most powerful man in the country, things go from bad to worse. Now, to stop the carnage,Larry and his new-found friends must work together to unravel a mystery as old as time, and face an enemy as dark as the ocean depths.
Michael West is fresh from a great reception of his first Seventh Star Press release, the Harmony, Indiana novel Cinema of Shadows. His other works include novels such as The Wide Game (Graveside Tales) and a single author collection, Skull Full of Kisses (Graveside Tales). He also has an array of short fiction published, spanning many magazines and anthologies, including appearances in Shroud Magazine, and the Apex Science Fiction and Horror Digest.
Poseidon’s Children will be released in limited hardcover, trade paperback, and several eBook formats, such Kindle, iPad, the Nook, and Sony/Sony compatible eBookreading devices. The second novel in the series is slated for the spring of 2013, with the other two planned titles to follow on an annual basis.

Cinema of Shadows welcomes you to the Woodfield Movie Palace.
The night the Titanic sank, it opened for business…and its builder died
in his chair. In the 1950s, there was a fire; a balcony full of people
burned to death. And years later, when it became the scene of one of
Harmony, Indiana’s most notorious murders, it closed for good.
Abandoned, sealed, locked up tight…until now.
Tonight, Professor Geoffrey Burke and his Parapsychology students have
come to the Woodfield in search of evidence, hoping to find irrefutable
proof of a haunting. Instead, they will discover that, in this theater,
the terrors are not confined to the screen.
Cinema of Shadows will ultimately be available in trade paperback,
hardcover, and a variety of eBook editions.
Spook House, the next Harmony, Indiana novel from Michael West, is slated
for 2012 release, with another title coming in 2013.
