Laura is fourteen-years-old and she’s going to remain fourteen for the rest of eternity. After her death she finds herself unfairly sent to a frozen region of an infinitely large and nightmarish Hades which is in a state of upheaval. Old breeds of Demons are being phased out and replaced with newer and ever more monstrous species.

Laura is taken in by a group of seasoned Damned, who in their efforts to create a comfortable environment for themselves have built a mock shopping mall, giving them the illusion of a mortal existence. Here they create and exchange various goods, assign themselves jobs, and form some semblance of families. However, not only are there dangerous individuals among the Damned themselves, but one of the new types of Demons is beginning to rise up in their very midst—a type of Demon solely programmed to bring about the tortures of the netherworld.

Yet there’s something different about Laura. She was only partially designated as one of the Damned…

The Half-Damned Girl is a fantastical horror novella by Jeffrey Thomas, creator of the Punktown universe and author of other books in the Hades series.

      “Jeffrey Thomas’ visions of Hell in Letters From Hades are as compelling and as beautifully horrific as any ever put down on paper.”
      — Jeff VanderMeer, author of Annihilation

      “Jeffrey Thomas’ imagination is as twisted as it is relentless. Every page of Letters From Hades presents new and original horrors. If there is such a place as hell, the demons have a suite reserved in Jeffrey Thomas’ name for writing this delightfully blasphemous novel.”
      — F. Paul Wilson, author of The Keep

      “Letters from Hades is not only thrilling entertainment, it’s also a brave and subversive book. Thomas manages to entwine a touching love story within a gruesome and graphic depiction of Hell – a sort of metaphysical Romeo and Juliet – all the while tackling theological issues head-on. Read it with an open mind. And be good.”
      — Tim Lebbon, author of The Silence

      “Jeffrey Thomas offers us a unique vision of hell that’s as beautiful as it is savage, as hauntingly poetic as it is heinous. Thomas’ Letters From Hades mines a different corner of perdition to strike a rich vein of soul and profundity. I’m a hardcore fan.”
      — Tom Piccirilli, author of The Cold Spot

      “I can’t rave enough about Jeffrey Thomas’ Letters From Hades. This is a stupendous read from beginning to end, an honorable man in Hell even Dante would find compelling. Now get off your damned asses and buy this book!”
      — Charlee Jacob, author of Haunter

      “Letters From Hades’ nightmarish vision of a fundamentalist afterlife is worthy of Michael Shea’s Nift the Lean and Bosch’s landscapes. Thoroughly rendered in precise and poetic language, Jeffrey Thomas’ rich and textured underworld provides a powerful medium for the story’s characters as they overcome torments and despair to grow and surprise the reader. This tour de force is mesmerizing in its revelation of pain and compassion, punishment and the possibility of redemption. Jeffrey Thomas’ odyssey through hell is an imaginative and compelling journey every reader should take.”
      — Gerard Houarner, author of Road to Hell

      “This book is my definition of dark fantasy. It pulls you into a very imaginative version of Hell that is as breathtaking as it is horrid. You really get an idea of what it would be like to live in hell, or at least Thomas’ vision of hell, and every hidden corner of the underworld has something unique and creative that will linger in your mind for days.”
      — Carlton Mellick III, author of The Haunted Vagina
