Ohio native Matt Betts is a pop culture junkie—sometimes to levels that are considered unhealthy by the Surgeon General. He grew up on a steady diet of giant monsters, comic books, and horror novels, all of which creep into his own work. Matt’s speculative poetry and short fiction have appeared in a number of anthologies and journals. Matt’s first novel, the steampunk/zombie/alternate history adventure Odd Men Out was a finalist for the Eric Hoffer Award for excellence in independent publishing. He is also the author of the urban fantasy novel Indelible Ink the sci-fi novel The Shadow beneath the Waves and the Odd Men Out sequel, Red Gear 9. His poetry collections include See No Evil, Say No Evil and Underwater Fistfight.
In the near future, Tilly, a former army pilot mourning the loss of her father, has been recruited by a British conglomerate to fly a rescue team into war-torn China in search of their missing conservationist and his team. Joined by an eclectic collection of misfits, Tilly and her makeshift crew must brace themselves for a long slog up the forested and danger-filled Yellow River. Can anything prepare them for the genetically-altered horrors and unscrupulous folks that await them along the way? Blending military sci-fi, light fantasy, and a touch of horror, Gone Where the Goblins Go offers a wonderfully strange blend of Apocalypse Now and The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.
