On a freewheeling and literary edition of After Hours AM/America’s Most Haunted Radio — with hosts Joel Sturgis and Eric Olsen — we plunge into 2017 Bram Stoker Award nominated supernatural novel THE APOTHECARY’S CURSE with author Barbara Barnett. Barbara will join us in hour 2. Hour 1, Joel and Eric will dive recklessly into the week’s top paranormal news for your amusement and edification. THE APOTHECARY’S CURSE, a 2017 Bram Stoker Award nominee, is a diabolical supernatural blend of historical fantasy and medical thriller as a physician and an apothecary race against time to recover the ancient book that made them immortal centuries ago. In Victorian London, the fates of physician Simon Bell and apothecary Gaelan Erceldoune entwine when Simon gives his wife an elixir created by Gaelan from an ancient manuscript. Meant to cure her cancer, it instead kills her. Suicidal, Simon swallows the remainder, only to find he cannot die. Five years later, hearing rumors of a Bedlam inmate with regenerative powers like his own, Simon is shocked to discover it’s Gaelan. As the two men conceal their immortality, the only hope of reversing their condition, the apothecary’s curse, rests with Gaelan’s missing manuscript. When modern-day pharmaceutical company Transdiff Genomics unearths diaries describing the torture of Bedlam inmates, the company’s scientists suspect a link between Gaelan and an unnamed inmate. Gaelan and Transdiff Genomics geneticist Anne Shawe are powerfully drawn to each other, and her family connection to his manuscript leads to a stunning revelation. Will it bring ruin or redemption?
