The Leisure paperback edition of Dweller, my second “serious” novel, will be in bookstores everywhere in April, but for those of you who want a hardcover limited edition (only 100 copies of the numbered edition and 26 copies of the deluxe lettered edition will be sold), they’re available for pre-order right now from Dark Regions Press!
Or you can get it (and much of my other stuff) from The Horror Mall!
When Toby Floren was eight years old, he discovered a monster living in the woods behind his house. A ghastly, frightening creature with claws, fangs, and a taste for human flesh. As he ran out of the forest, screaming, Toby felt that he’d been lucky to escape with his life.
Years later, Toby finds comfort with the creature. It’s his own special secret–something that nobody else in the world knows about. Somebody to talk to. Somebody to confide in. Sure, Toby has concerns about his own sanity, but really, what boy wouldn’t want to be best friends with a monster in the woods, especially if he’s being tormented by bullies? The creature, who he names Owen, may be the answer to his problems…
From Jeff Strand, the author of Pressure, comes the story of a macabre, decades-long friendship. A relationship that will last their entire lives, through times of happiness, tragedy, love, loss, madness, and complete darkness.
Dweller. The lifetime story of a boy and his monster.
(NOTE: The estimated ship date for the hardcover edition is March 2010, which puts it out ahead of the mass market paperback edition. But this is not guaranteed–it may be out a bit later. Just stating this upfront, because I know how you get when your beastly rage bubbles to the surface.)
(While you’re there, why not pick up a copy of the trade paperback edition of Gleefully Macabre Tales? Wouldn’t that be cool?)
