WARNING: “The God in the Hills” contains material not suitable for most audiences.
“Jon Steffens’ writing slices deep, gushing with terrifying images in a thick, warm stream and soaking the pages with expertly crafted gore.”
– Rebecca Rowland (author, The Horrors Hiding in Plain Sight)
“From the blackest mountain recesses, He came. A being with desires not of animal nor man; an appetite for perversion as insatiable as His thirst for pain. Like the depraved backwoods offspring of Richard Laymon and Edward Lee, The God in the Hills is a sick and twisted thrill ride that never lets up and is well deserved of its Splatterpunk Awards recognition.”
– Tom Over (author of the Splatterpunk Award-nominated: The Comfort Zone and Other Safe Spaces)
“The God in the Hills is a toothbrush shank probing your internal organs and bleeding out any remaining hope you believed humanity had into a roadside ditch on a rarely used highway, bask in the extreme horror.”

“Let me give you the favor I never got…this story will wreck you. It is 50 pages of uncensored, no-holds-barred, gruesome, shocking, and horrific terror that I couldn’t put down.”
– Grimm Deathwish (HorrorFuel.com)
During summer, the little Ozark town of Hotspur, Arkansas becomes a hotbed for tourists looking to trade the stress of city life for outdoor adventure.
