Cursed in New England
Joseph A. Citro

Sept 2004
Paperback

From Publishers Weekly
Vermont native Citro has spent years studying the darker side of New England; in books such as Passing Strange, Curious New England and Green Mountains, Dark Trails he’s told stories of hauntings and horrors, of mysteries and superstitions. Here he examines some of the area’s most famous curses, from the 1600s through the 1960s, and while his tone is generally impartial ("in the interest of journalistic objectivity"), he admits a fascination that verges on belief. Convicted citizens who knew themselves to be innocent often pronounced final curses on their accusers (Citro reports that in the late 17th century, after being told by a condemned woman that God would give him blood to drink, a dishonest cleric suffered an internal hemorrhage and drowned in his own blood), while desperate people called down...

From Publishers Weekly
Strange disappearances, brutal murders, animal mutilations and all manner of other macabre goings-on color this re-released 1987 gothic tale from Citro, who specializes in the occult--avowedly fictional (Dark Twilight) and otherwise (Passing Strange: True Tales of New England Hauntings and Horror). Here local newspaper oddities, diaries, letters and accounts of unsolved mysteries from the historical records of Vermont precede many of the chapters, adding to the authenticity of the chills as a Vermont family struggles in the grip of powers it can barely admit exist. The Whitcome family--Pamela, Clint and little Luke--welcome Pam's cousin, Eric, who is mourning the death of his wife. Seeking comfort from the cousin to whom he was close in childhood, he finds refuge from his grief in their loving home. But soon...

Deus-X: The Reality Conspiracy
Joseph A. Citro

September 2003
Paperback

Book Review
Deus-X, one of the most inventive novels of spiritual terror, is the fifth occult thriller by Vermont native Joseph A. Citro, who has achieved even greater recognition as a bestselling nonfiction chronicler of the occult and paranormal. What he has done so effectively with Deus-X can perhaps be best compared to deciphering the ultimate X-Files case. But instead of two FBI agents, there are three amateur investigators--a psychologist, a priest, and a physicist--who band together to try to save the world from total subjugation to a secret supernatural, or possibly extraterrestrial, force. Citro seamlessly couples his insight into the unknown with his considerable skills as a horror novelist to explain the seemingly inexplicable. Meanwhile, it's exciting and frightening to learn that the truth is... in here. --Stanley...

From Publishers Weekly
A hybrid of journalism and legend, this wide-ranging, well-researched collection of Vermont folklore consists of 31 tall tales, peculiarities, stories of the supernatural and modern mysteries. Spanning from the early 1700s to contemporary times, the book is divided into three categoriesA"People," "Places" and "Things"Aall of which Citro, author of five suspense novels (The Unseen, etc.), classifies as Vermont's "dark tales." Straightforward, brief sketches feature such unique Vermont residents as James Johns, a newspaper publisher of the 19th century who put out his own hand-lettered, one-copy-only newspaper five days a week for over 40 years, or the "Queen of Cupidity," mean, niggardly Hetty Green, who "railroaded" her husband into a poorhouse yet died at age 81 worth over $100 million. Among the haunted places...
