Praise for The Boys of Summer

“This beautifully written supernatural thriller is vibrantly original and his characters are intricately detailed.”
Booklist

“The mind-blowing aspects of this complex, challenging novel build slowly, inexorably, to a climax that involves a storm to end all storms. And it is glorious.”
Barnes & Noble Sci-Fi Blog

The Boys of Summer is is speculative fiction, science fiction, historical fiction, and fantasy, incorporating political, economic, and religious philosophies. It reminds me simultaneously of Stand by Me, The Omen, and The Truman Show.”
