A murderous madman plans to resurrect an ancient monster buried beneath a small Canadian town in this chilling novel for fans of Joe Hill.It’s 1972, and there are some new arrivals to the remote mining village of Parr’s Landing . . .The recently widowed Christina Parr and her brother-in-law, Jeremy, are the first to show up. Both fled town years ago because of the same woman—but for ultimately different, dark reasons. They weren’t expecting a warm welcome upon their homecoming, but they had nowhere else to turn.Meanwhile, Dr. Billy Lightning is searching for clues to prove the grisly death of his anthropologist father was not an accident. But the police aren’t likely to be helpful to someone like him.Then there’s Richard Weal. With his long hair and cowboy hat, the disheveled man looks like a hippie. But the contents of his hockey bag will show he’s anything but peaceful. He has cut a bloody path across the country to answer a powerful, supernatural call. In a cave near Bradley Lake, there slumbers a three-hundred-year-old horror that urgently wants to be released . . .“Skillfully brings to mind the classic works of Stephen King and Robert McCammon.” —Christopher Rice, New York Times–bestselling author of the Burning Girl series“[Rowe] rescues the modern vampire novel from its current state of mediocrity with his dead-on portrayal of the gothic small town, rich characters and deeply frightening story. . . . Read Enter, Night. With the lights on.” —Susie Moloney, bestselling author of The Thirteen

    Classic horror from the prolific author of ghost stories and supernatural fiction, and thought by H. P. Lovecraft to be the best “weird tale” of all time.   “Algernon Blackwood’s novella The Willows uses setting like a master. This story is considered by Lovecraft and others to be one of the greatest horror short stories of all time. . . . I can tell you it creeped me out more than I thought it would. It’s a simple tale: two men traveling the Danube by boat end up stopping at an island of willows to pass the night, and they begin to realize that they have trespassed upon a land that does not welcome them, and isn’t really a part of our own world. I went in knowing that it greatly influenced Lovecraft, and the parallels in ideas and style are readily apparent in the last half of the story. . . . A beautifully written, enjoyably creepy novella.” —ChicagoNow   “Represents a high point in the development of the horror genre—in fact, horror master H. P. Lovecraft regarded it as the best supernatural tale ever written. More thought-provoking than gory or terrifying, The Willows is a must-read for fans of classic ghost stories.” —NPR.org   “Mind-blowing eeriness . . . [a] slow-thickening, vibrating, vegetable atmosphere of dread.” —Tor.com   “It’s easy to see why this story was revered by Lovecraft and others. It is a textbook example of the classic weird tale, evocatively conjuring the mystery and otherworldly dread that are the hallmarks of such fiction. It moves a little slowly, but patient readers will be well-rewarded with a deeply unsettling slice of cosmic horror.” —My Weird Life
