Waiting on Wednesday: A Special Place
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
This week’s pre-publication can’t wait to read selection is:
A Special Place: The Heart of a Dark Matter by Peter Straub
Creepy to the core, this novella shines a terrible light on the backstory of Straub’s acclaimed A Dark Matter (2010). Young Keith Hayward idolizes his charming, charismatic Uncle Till. When Keith’s mother asks Till to talk to Keith after the boy is found dismembering a dead cat, Till recognizes a kindred spirit and begins to instruct Keith on smart, secret ways to pursue his evil endeavors. As the years pass, Keith grows older and bolder in his sadistic pleasures, and when Till comes back into town, Keith finds the perfect way to impress him.
This title will be released on July 20, 2010.
