I’m a Christian, so I just wanted to write a story with a Christian worldview. I wanted to talk about why we experience things such as pain and suffering and death, and do it in a fictional way.

Print copies of “The Devil’s Choir” by Chris Morrow are out ahead of the January 2013 release month and could be out nationally as early as December, according to Anthony Horvath, executive director of Anthanatos Christian Ministries. In the meantime, Morrow’s fans who live in and near Joplin, Mo., can purchase a copy of “The Devil’s Choir” at Always Buying Books on North Main near Stone's Corner at the discounted price of $13 ($14.95 on Amazon).
With the short period to time “The Devil’s Choir” has been available as an ebook, reviews from Christian horror enthusiasts and secular media outlets have applauded Morrow’s release.
The tale, set in a fictitious college town in Oak Springs, Kan., involves Melanie Elarton, a young college student with some unique abilities, and Ari, an investigator with an interesting past.
Melanie’s and Ari’s story has attracted the eyes of journalists in Kansas – notably collegiate journalists at Ottawa University in Ottawa, Kan. Morrow, a former Ottawa student, was featured in an OU Campus story by reporter Casey Flowers. In the piece, Flowers mentions Morrow’s conversation with famed secular horror writer Ann Rice. Morrow said he asked Rice how to balance Christian and horror. Not particularly content with Rice’s answer, Morrow said he was challenged to balance both.
“I can tell a story and I can talk about things like death, suffering, and pain and why they have to deal with those things and do it in a way that detaches the reader,” he said. “I can take a reader into a place where those things exist, but the reader can’t be necessarily hurt by it.
Pittsburg Morning Star community content editor Nikki Parker outlined in the column “Patrick’s People” how Morrow developed the Christian horror story.
“I’m a Christian, so I just wanted to write a story with a Christian worldview,” Morrow told Parker. “I wanted to talk about why we experience things such as pain and suffering and death, and do it in a fictional way.”
Morrow is one of the authors in the Bard and Book community, the home of some of his other short stories in the horror genre.
