Greetings from Moon Hill is a new collection of stories by horror author Anthony J. Rapino, set in and around the fictional town of Moon Hill, Pennsylvania.

Precipice Books is a small press specializing in horror and speculative fiction, delivering a unique premium experience to readers across a variety of mediums. This campaign was conceived as a way to offer a unique experience for all fans of horror: one in which a reader could possess tangible artifacts that come directly from the fictional world they are traversing. Perk level rewards include a full-sized map of Moon Hill, postcards, the limited edition signed and number hardcover horror collection, two unique and exclusive horror sculptures based on the Moon Hill mythology, a one-of-a-kind sculpture made to your specifications, and Moon Hill mystery boxes.

Campaign stretch goals offer the ability to unlock Moon Hill T-shirts, exclusive illustrations for the collection, new sculptures, a short story critique, and much more.

Supporters of this campaign will establish the town limits of Moon Hill and become hallowed residents. Collect hidden artifacts from the haunted soil, pinpoint your location with the elusive map, and do so as you interpret the arcane text. Moon Hill awaits. We’re expecting you.



“Anthony Rapino’s work is uniquely infused with horror and a type of childlike innocence that makes the darkness that much darker. Greetings from Moon Hill invites you to a place that is both tragic and extraordinary. Once you enter, you’ll never be allowed to leave.”  – Mercedes M. Yardley, Bram Stoker Award-nominated author of Little Dead Red and Pretty Little Dead Girls

“Anthony Rapino’s collection Greetings from Moon Hill is his best work so far. Don’t miss these fascinating and scary stories from a master of the craft.” – Kate Jonez, Bram Stoker and Shirley Jackson Award-nominated author of Ceremony of Flies and Candy House

Greetings from Moon Hill […] displays Rapino’s range, which is vast and varied, yet unique, and always dark as well as entertaining. With effortless grace and ease, and weaved like a seasoned professional, this collection proves that Rapino’s career is destined to be a long and fruitful one. I cannot think of a higher compliment.” – Ben Eads, author of Cracked Sky

“Anthony Rapino is the kind of writer I seek out in the quiet moments, when I am reading for myself and not for a deadline. He crafts charismatic & off kilter characters with a wonderful small town mentality. And as small towns go, Moon Hill is draped in shadows and as quirky as they come. A definite Charles L. Grant glow illuminates between the pages of a Rapino yarn. It’s a curio I’ve been missing since Grant’s passing.” Zakk Walters, The Eyes of Madness

“A master at the art of tale-spinning, Anthony Rapino infuses a sense of creeping dread that immediately entrances and bewilders. To enter his world is to become unsettlingly accustomed to those tales that exist in the shadows.” Mary Rajotte, Bloody Bookish

“Want thrilling, scary, moody stories that put you on edge and play with your emotions? Well if you’re looking for that and you’re looking for an experience rather than just entertainment, one author comes immediately to my mind and that author is Anthony Rapino.” — Benjamin Kane Ethridge, award winning author of Black & Orange and Divine Scream

“In Greetings from Moon Hill, Anthony Rapino is at times a sorcerer, and other times a madman. His work is both that of a puppeteer, and also a sadist. He tends to detail much like a chef, as he parses imagery throughout his work morsel by morsel, which we ravenously consume, until we realize that with his fiction, actually it is us that are being consumed.” – Eryk Pruitt, author of Dirtbags and Hashtag
