Boston Horror Readers -- In the Valley of the Sun by Andy Davidson (July)
In the Valley of the Sun: A Novel by Andy Davidson https://www.amazon.com/Valley-Sun-Novel-Andy-Davidson/dp/151072110X A finalist for the 2017 Bram Stoker Award for Superior Achievement in a First Novel. Travis Stillwell spends his nights searching out women in West Texas honky-tonks. What he does with them doesn’t make him proud, just quiets the demons for a little while. But his nights soon take a terrifying turn in a desert cantina, where Travis crosses paths with a mysterious pale-skinned girl in red boots. Come the morning, he wakes weak and bloodied in his cabover camper, no sign of a girl, no memory of the night before. Annabelle Gaskin spies the camper parked behind her rundown motel and offers the disheveled cowboy inside a few odd jobs to pay his board. Travis takes her up on the offer, if only to buy time, to lay low, to heal. By day, he mends the old motel, insinuating himself into the lives of Annabelle and her ten-year-old son. By night, in the cave of his camper, he fights an unspeakable hunger. Before long, Annabelle and her boy come to realize that this strange cowboy they’ve taken in is not what he seems. Half a state away, a grizzled Texas ranger is hunting Travis down for his past misdeeds, but what he finds will lead him to a revelation far more monstrous than he could ever imagine. A man of the law, he’ll have to decide how far into the darkness he’ll go for the sake of justice. When these lives converge on a dusty autumn night, an old evil will find new life—and new blood. Deftly written and utterly compelling, this is an atmospheric literary fiction debut perfect for fans of horror, psychological suspense, and Western fiction.

What we're about

Calling all horror fanatics! Many of us have friends who look at us a little strange when we start to ramble about the latest slasher, zombie, or supernatural movie that we can't get off our minds. So if you're looking to meet like-minded people in the city who enjoy offbeat, darker entertainment....then this if your group. We screen new movies, watch older cult classics, attend conventions, and discuss and debate all things horror. We welcome different ideas and interests within the genre and sometimes loosely related to the genre (science fiction, fantasy, etc). We look forward to going on some outings with fellow horror fans!
