Dark, Indeed

Best-selling writer Peter Straub has been praised for his ability to blend horror with literary fiction. Critics gave mixed reviews of his latest novel, A Dark Matter, with some raving about Straub’s mastery of the horror genre and others complaining they were bored! As usual, what do the critics know?

Straub’s main character, Lee Hartwell, has a bad case of writer’s block.  He switches to nonfiction, writing about a deadly incident from his youth that he hasn’t talked about in years.  As he goes back to discover what really happened on that strange night, he finds that the answers are far from simple.
