Keith Steinbaum Makes Survival Impossible in His Award-Winning Novel
“The Poe Consequence” will haunt its readers as relatable humanity clashes with a vengeful supernatural being.
“This fast-paced thriller reveals an intriguing story line of one being tormented by an obsession in the afterlife. The hunt for Warren, already dead, really kept me turning the pages.”
Can two rival gang members escape from a supernatural killer intent on revenge? How is survival possible if the target being stalked has no safe place to hide? How does he fight against someone that can only be heard and not seen? Against someone already dead? These are the questions you will seek to answer as you read Keith Steinbaum’s award-winning novel, The Poe Consequence.
With its combustible combination of Los Angeles gang life, human struggles, mysticism, revenge, and a terrifying supernatural entity, it’s no wonder that it won Books-and-Authors.net’s Supernatural Thriller Book of the Year Award.
According to Steinbaum, there are books that revolve around modern-day gangs and others that highlight a supernatural killer, but he never came across one that integrates both subjects. The joining of these two apparent divergent concepts is what he hopes the reader feels make his work unique and interesting.
Aside from the many positive reviews he’s received from numerous blog sites, various publishing houses have also praised The Poe Consequence. According to The Doubleday Broadway Publishing Group, “This fast-paced thriller reveals an intriguing story line of one being tormented by an obsession in the afterlife. The hunt for Warren, already dead, really kept me turning the pages.”
Henry Holt and Company had this to say: “The modern twist on the vengeful ghost is one of the more original ideas I’ve come across in recent fiction submissions. For me, Keith Steinbaum’s writing quickly took on a cinematic quality.”
Little, Brown, and Company commented, “I enjoyed Mr. Steinbaum’s page turning writing, and I think he’s found a great character in Warren. I also liked the literary connection the thriller makes with Edgar Allan Poe.”
