Daniel Boyd is an acclaimed filmmaker with dozens of films, including Chillers, Strangest Dreams: Invasion of the Space Preachers, and Paradise Park to his credit. A recently retired media studies professor at West Virginia State University, Boyd also taught around the world including in Tanzania as a three-time Fulbright scholar. Producing nearly every genre of film, Boyd’s television work has earned 3 Telly awards and 2 regional Emmy nominations. His first graphic novel, Chillers 1, was the 2012 Shel Dorph nominee for Original Graphic Novel of the Year, and Ghastly nominee for Best Horror Anthology. Chillers 2 was released in 2013, and CARBON, 2014. CARBON was an Original Graphic Novel Ghastly nominee. SALT completes his CARBON epic eco-horror saga. Boyd continues to serve part-time as Artist in Residence at WV State University’s Economic Development Center on Charleston, West Virginia’s west side.

Salt completes the tale begun with Carbon, which climaxed as Heat Hatfield rescued the few Eden Hollow citizens who survived the cataclysmic ignition of the eternal coal sea. In Salt, Heat reluctantly dons the mantle of messiah to lead his tattered band toward safety—or doom. But where can they find salvation?

As the clock ticks toward Earth’s doomsday, the preservation of humankind depends on Heat Hatfield and the small, brave band of coal miners he leads in this conclusion of the CARBON series.

Like CARBON, the sensational tale in SALT delivers excitement with a message: Entertainment with purpose.
