Calling all horror fans!
I am very excited to be able to do this, to share with you a book that I read and loved.
A little background: Back in the early part of this year, I was lucky enough to snag an ARC of the newest novel by John Ajvide Lindqvist, the author of “Let the Right One In” (which was made into a movie in Sweden, and then this year remade in the U.S. as “Let Me In”. It was a riveting story of a friendship between a young vampire and a marginalized Swedish boy).
It was fascinating, and horrific, and so of course I had to read Lindqvist’s new novel. As good as “Let the Right One In” is, he really hits his stride with “Harbor.” On a day trip to a lighthouse, across the ice-bound snowy harbor, a small girl vanishes without a trace. The book follows the girl’s father, and his neighbors on the island, with weird twists and horrific encounters with people who should not be. There’s an insidious, creeping evil here on this otherwise lovely island off the coast of Sweden.
Sadly, the giveaway is restricted to the U.S. and Canada. St. Martin’s Press is generously providing the book, and will send it from their offices in New York. Sorry folks, I know a lot of you are in other countries. I’ll hopefully be able to do something more international another time. I get to pull the winner and then provide their name and address to St. Martin’s.
So, if you live in the U.S. or Canada and would like to get a copy of this book, leave a comment below and I will pick a winner on October 11, the date of the book’s U.S. release.
