About Asher Ellis
Asher Ellis currently lives in his home state of Vermont, where there are far fewer cannibals than his novels may suggest. A graduate of the Stonecoast MFA in Creative Writing program at the University of Southern Maine, he has written award winning short stories, plays, and films. When Asher isn’t killing college students on the pages of his fiction, he teaches them as a creative writing and English professor at multiple colleges throughout Vermont and New Hampshire.

Roads paved with good intentions, however, tend to lead only one place. For when Eve is denied health insurance to cover ailing Tommy's medical expenses, Jack knows his cab driver's salary won't be enough to pay the bills.
Enter Damon Gray, Jack's old partner-in-crime, who offers him an opportunity too perfect to refuse: crack into the safe of Richard Kohler, the same insurance magnate who denied Tommy's coverage.
But what Jack, Damon, and the rest don't realize, is that Kohler has something other than money locked in his safe… Something never meant to be released… Something with an insatiable hunger.
"This is my dream book, I can't believe it exists!"
--Jeff Burk, author of Shatnerquake and The Very Ineffective Haunted House
On his desperate trek to find help, Jason comes upon Sophia, a little girl who has been tied up and left in the woods. Despite his best intentions, Jason's attempt to help the child has interrupted the ritual of a neighborhood cult—a ritual that protects the town from an ancient demonic swine.
With all the roads leading out of town impassable, Jason and his few allies must not only escape the pursuing cultists, but somehow survive a curse that has left the majority of East Valley's population with an insatiable hunger.
Cultists, cannibals, and the demon itself must all be defeated if Jason and his friends are going to survive...
The Curse of the Pigman.
