BARBOURSVILLE, W.Va. (Jeff Morris) -- Mothman, that familiar, red-eyed creature that has been the subject of movies and books and helped put Point Pleasant on the map, is making its return.

A new book, “Return of the Mothman”, brings the evil, red-eyed monster back to its old stomping grounds, to West Virginia — this time making its appearance not in Point Pleasant, but in rugged Logan County, according to a news release from the publisher.

The new novel, penned by Bram Stoker Award-winner Michael Knost and published by Woodland Press, will be released nationally on Saturday during a book launch party from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Books-A-Million at Huntington Mall in Barboursville.

“Since the Mountain State really birthed the bird-like legend, it made perfect sense to release the novel here,” said Knost, who is also a West Virginia native. “The dreaded Mothman has some unfinished business here in the Mountain State.”

The novel— described by the publisher as having skillfully drawn characters and riveting suspense — is already receiving a lot of industry buzz in pre-release reviews.

Joining Michael Knost at the title’s launch will be Brian J. Hatcher and S. Clayton Rhodes, both nationally recognized writers in the horror and thriller genres.

For more information about the book party, contact Books-A-Million at Huntington Mall, 120 Mall Rd, Barboursville call 304-733-9252.
