Billy and his friends wanted a new drug . . .they found one.

FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. - eTradeWire -- When 1980's party-boy, Billy Baxton, comes across a listing for the perfect fixer-upper in a neighborhood well outside his normal budget, he can't believe his luck may be changing for the better finally. Complete with an old swimming pool and a finished basement; housing an abandoned billiard table and an old Pac-Man machine-it has the potential to be the quintessential bachelor pad of which he's always dreamed. A chance to embark on the next chapter of his young life and escape his run-down apartment complex with smelly hallways, beer-saturated carpets, and paper-thin walls.
After moving in with his slacker roommate, Buddha, Billy slowly learns that the house harbors a morbid secret. One that immediately absorbs his insatiable curiosity. As he begins to dig deeper into the history of this house and previous owner, he is slowly drawn into a bizarre rabbit-hole of black magic, hidden rooms, portals into other worlds, and beautiful, interdimensional creatures beyond worldly imagination.

Billy assumes he has discovered the key to a utopian realm, but eventually learns that there is a darkness that lurks beyond the fabric of this reality. A darkness that could potentially lead to the extinction of mankind.

Matthew Pongratz (https://www.cactusmoonpublishing.com/matthew-pongratz.html) is an insatiable fan of horror and crime thrillers (as well as the occasional rock biography), and an avid writer/reader of tales that dive in and explore the darker side of human nature.

While taking a break from his current projects, he also enjoys hiking, Pickleball, working on his jump shot in the driveway, cooking, reading, and going for walks with his dog, Buddy.

He currently resides in Michigan with his wife and daughter.

"Beyond the Black Mirror is the quintessential 80's novel. While reading I would hear the song, 'I Want a New Drug' by Huey Lewis and the News, playing in the background of my mind. Billy and his buddies land a phenomenal experience that created euphoria and like other euphoric experiences, we seek until we lose ourselves in the continuous quest for that feeling. But for Billy and the gang . . . the consequences are deadly."
