SINEATER - SIGNED FIRST.
by Elizabeth Massie.
Nominated for the Best First Novel from the Horror Writers Association.
Flat Signed by the author.
OVERVIEW: Winner of the Bram Stoker Award. The sineater is a dark figure in the night, condemned to live alone in the woods. He devours food from the dead to absorb their sins into his own soul. To look upon the face of the sineater is to see the face of evil. But in a small town, the sineater has a family of his own. With the violated taboo comes a rash of horrifying events. But does the evil emanate from the sineater or from an even darker force?.
Massie's evident talent puts this well ahead of many other would-be literary debuts..
The focus of the novel... is on the well-evoked mood of fear and despair. Elizabeth Massie works her horror effects with an intimate approach, closing in on her characters as if she's trapping them. And her descriptions do justice to the rustic setting, where people live in four-room cabins and honeysuckle winds around the knotty rails of the fences. -Amazon
