here), but they are also producing this limited edition hardback with cover art by the greatest cover illustrator of all time, Robert McGinnis. I just might have to pony up and buy this.
About the book: it's a solid Stephen King with lots of great atmosphere, a few creepy scenes, and a more than usual amount of nostalgia and heart-string-pulling. A coming-of-age novel set in 1973 at an independently-run carnival in the south, where narrator Devin Jones spends his summer. The novel meanders a bit, but I think that's the point. It's about all the experiences of this young man's life, from his first broken heart, his first sexual experience, his first close friendships. There's also a ghost and a serial killer, but they almost seem like subplots. A sweet book that doesn't quite live up to the pulpiness of its cover art, but that's in keeping with tradition.
