Author William Burke “Delivers the whole horror package with PRIMEVAL WATERS.”

Posted on: November 17th, 2021

Strap on your life jacket for an Amazon River hell cruise teeming with prehistoric nightmares, modern pirates, ancient aliens, and ageless mysticism—that’s the blurb for William Burke’s latest horror thrill-ride, Primeval Waters, published by Severed Press. And, according to the critics, it lives up to the hype.

“Primeval Waters represents horror/thriller adventure writing at its best … packed with unexpected twists and turns. Pirates, kidnappers, ancient monsters and cannibals, oh my! Edge-of-your-seat reading that grips with an introductory mystery and doesn’t let go.” (D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review).

“Burke plunges readers into a layered world of mayhem and ancient mysteries… The expert combination of immersive storytelling, strong characters, and well-woven mixture of high tech and speculative prehistoric elements makes for an unforgettable experience. Primeval Waters deserves a big screen adaptation” (The Prairies Book Review).

“William Burke delivers the whole horror package with Primeval Waters” (Tammy Ruggles, Readers’ Favorite).

“A riveting, fast-paced book that incorporates horror aspects into a wonderfully created and highly imaginative world… It’s dark at times in the best way. This is a great piece of writing with so much to offer!” (Novel News Network).

As an author, Burke has dedicated himself to giving readers a unique, adrenaline-fueled blend of horror, action and adventure. Writing in the horror genre comes naturally to someone born into a family of UFO-worshipping professional psychics.

According to Burke, “Our house was packed with hundreds of proto new-age devotees, all into Oujia boards, angels and aliens. It wasn’t a cult per se, but even as a kid I knew it wasn’t normal. Feeling like a stranger in my own home, I retreated into a private world of comic books, Famous Monsters magazines and late-night horror movies.”

Eventually he put those childhood obsessions to good use. After serving four years in the military, he produced a whirlwind of B-movies and Cinemax After-Dark shows. All those formative years surrounded by UFOs and the occult really paid off when he created and directed the Destination America paranormal series Hauntings & Horrors.

In addition to writing novels, Burke has contributed to Fangoria, Horrornews, and Videoscope. He dwells in Toronto, in the last house on a dead-end street.

Primeval Waters is available on Amazon in paperback and kindle.
