Since his first novel, Moondeath, was published in 1980, Rick Hautala's novels and stories have entertained millions of readers around the world.
Now, as a companion volume to Bedbugs, his first career-spanning collection of short stories, Cemetery Dance is proud to present Occasional Demons.
And once again, like Bedbugs, award-winning artist and Cemetery Dance favorite Glenn Chadbourne has illustrated every one of the more than twenty-four stories, which include collaborations with Matthew Costello, Jim Connolly, his sons Jesse and Matti, and someone named A.J. Matthews.
In the midst of normal life, whether it's a tree house in a small Maine town, a fog-shrouded lighthouse, or a darkened tavern on a rain-swept night in October, there are demons. Some of them lurk in the darkest corners of a house. Some of them lurk in our hearts and minds. We might, on occasion, catch a glimpse of them, but all too often it's too late to save ourselves...
And they're all gathered here. In fact, within these pages, you'll find a demon for just about any occasion.
