Sorry, couldn’t resist making the joke! I’m not sure why but I’ve ended up reading all of Benjamin Percy’s books on planes. I realized this as my flight took off from Boston as I read a scene of a werewolf devouring most of the passengers on a plane at the beginning of Red Moon, his forthcoming book.
Dear reader, a piece of advice. Don’t read horrific scenes about planes while on one.
I managed to ignore my fears and read most of this book on the way down to Atlanta last week. I’ve been an admirer of his writing since his first story collection Refresh, Refresh came out in 2007. I really enjoyed this book both the characters and the sort of Orwellian geopolitical plot Percy dreamed up. It’s a scary novel about lycanthropes where the terror comes not from the monsters but from the life-like situation created.
Don’t miss this fine novel when it comes out next May from Grand Central!
