FLOATING HAIR by Ethan Koil
Lucy. Burned. Dumped. Gone forever. No-one cared. Yet sometimes the past won’t remain buried. Sometimes it returns hungry for revenge. So very hungry…
Floating Hair is a gothic horror novel set in north-eastern United States.
David, grieving for his lost wife, returns to the town of his childhood: finding love and solace and escape.
Malsham: now filled with romantic, sexual, and criminal lives.
And some bad men. Especially one…
In 1692, Lucy was burned as a witch to conceal his crime: the ravaging fire destroying every aspect of her identity. In the centuries that follow, no-one is held responsible. But now she is given a chance of retribution…
On a cold October night, there is a light in the sky. The population of Malsham watches its blazing progress, before it crashes into the lake. In that moment before impact, some become psychically bound: their lives forever linked.
The explosion resurrects Lucy as a fiery vampire. Initially unable to leave the waters, she births small dragons which feed upon the townspeople: gaining sustenance from their endeavours.
Rain deluges the region. Hauling herself from the lake, the rainwater coats her skin: churning from transparent into disparate dark colours. She strides towards the closest house…

I have been writing, on and off, since the age of 16, and currently reside near Bristol, in the UK. When I’m not writing, I enjoy hiking and fishing.
I started writing Floating Hair in 1996, wrote about 60 pages, became disillusioned with writing, and stopped. Picked up the 60 pages in 2009, spent 3 years turning it into a full-length novel, but attracted precisely zero interest from agents and publishers. Rewrote it 2019-21, and finally self-published. So, here it is!
