Tuesday night: Nightmare Factory Book Club reads 77 Shadow Street by Dean Koontz

Once every month, the sphere of reality that encompasses the cafe at BookPeople fragments and novas before collapsing in on itself and, to all but the most practiced eyes, seeming to return to normal. If you can read this message, though, you know that appearances can be deceiving, that time is sometimes more malleable than we assume, and that something feral and unclean lurks in the shadows of our bookshelves. Every third Tuesday of the month at 8:00 p.m., the Nightmare Factory Book Club phase-shifts into our world to discuss weird and supernatural literature, bringing with it a great darkness that can only be appeased by making a sacrifice at the Altar of Chitchat. Flock to BookPeople on Tuesday the 16th at 8:00 to help us banish this evil by examining September’s offering of 77 Shadow Street by Dean Koontz.

The residents of the grand Pendleton estate are no strangers to bizarre occurrences and spectral visitations. Built atop a seismological anomaly, this vainglorious apartment building has played host to numerous murders throughout its century-long reign at the top of Shadow Hill. When a handful of unlikely heroes delve into the historical record and start asking questions, though, the killing sprees that stain the Pendleton’s history no longer look like isolated incidents. In fact, there is a definite pattern to be found in the blood on the walls, and the reward for unveiling this monstrous algorithm is the condemnation of becoming its next victims. 77 Shadow Street by Dean Koontz recalls a dark past, etches a grim present, and foredooms a surreally nightmarish future. Join the Nightmare Factory Book Club at 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, September 16th to share your thoughts about this oblation from one of horror’s most popular scribes.

The Nightmare Factory Book Club meets on the third Tuesday of every month at 8:00 p.m. in the dilapidated mansion of BookPeople’s cafe to revel in literary horror fiction – from the grandiloquent to the grotesque to the goofy. Swoop by this Tuesday to chitter about 77 Shadow Street by Dean Koontz, flap your jaw about the nonsense that makes you cackle, and roost with a friendly swarm of like-minded nerds.
