A SPECIAL PLACE: The Heart of a Dark Matter.

By Peter Straub.

Signed Limited Edition.

OVERVIEW:  A Special Place, the Heart of A Dark Matter, once a part of the manuscript that became A Dark Matter, is probably the most deeply unsettling work of fiction Peter Straub has ever written. Like most of Straubs ruminations on the nature of evil, it centers on a boy, but in this instance, the boy is not a victim. Keith Hayward is drawn by his nature and genetic inheritance to an irresistible fascination with death and the takng of life. His fathers brother, good-looking, suave Uncle Till, who has had a carrer as a local serial murderer known as The Ladykiller, recognizes his nephews inmost nature and gleefully tutors him in the techniques of doing ill to other creatures without getting caught. Even a cold-blooded socipath must learn some lessons in survival and it amuses Uncle Till to provide them. All of this takes place in that fertile forcing-ground of madmen and serial killers, Milwaukee.

2009 Borderlands Press hardcover. Signed limited edition. Although stated to have 250 copies, apparantly the print run had some issues and we understand its only about 150 copies that were released. New with protective book cover.
