"We gladly feast on those who would subdue us."
I have a new book! It is called THE SUMMER IS ENDED AND WE ARE NOT YET SAVED. Here is the synopsis:
Martin is going to Bible Camp for the summer. He's going to learn archery and swimming, and he's going to make new friends. He's pretty excited, but that's probably because nobody told him that this is a horror novel!
And this is what Booklist said in their review:
Lean and mean and hugely entertaining, with no high-falutin’ literary pretenses—note to fans of slasher flicks: yes, the villain is exactly who you think it is—but with a genuinely shocking conclusion, the book should be a big hit with old-school horror fans. - Booklist
I am very excited that this book is coming out! You can buy it here.
The Awl last Friday, recommending that everyone see Local Hero, a movie which is likely my favourite above all others. I did, after all, watch it twice while living in Scotland last year... Balk was linking to a short musing on the film and the nostalgia of travel, which I'd recommend reading even if you insist - like a FOOL - on not seeing the movie itself.
