About the Book:
A revised (with a completely rewritten ending!) version of the hardest-to-find of all the Ketchum novels! His only supernatural novel, She Wakes is a chilling adventure horror story. The long out of print paperback edition often sells for well over $50 so grab this hardcover limited edition before it's gone!
....And feeds on the living, who are so easy and so pleasurable to kill.
....And her awakening summons Jordon Thayer Chase, a man who hears the voices of ancient gods and feels the power of sacred places -- who knows he must fulfill a destiny which may ensure his death.
...And seeks out Robert Dodgson, a writer who came to Greece for sun, ouzo and women -- luring him and his friends into an unimaginable nightmare of pain and terror.
...To seduce and destroy, to drench the world in blood. And nothing human can stop her.
Jack Ketchum is the pseudonym for a former actor, singer, teacher, literary agent, lumber salesman, and soda jerk—a former flower child and baby boomer who figures that in 1956 Elvis, dinosaurs and horror probably saved his life. His first novel, Off Season, prompted the Village Voice to publicly scold its publisher in print for publishing violent pornography. He personally disagrees but is perfectly happy to let you decide for yourself. His short story "The Box" won a 1994 Bram Stoker Award from the HWA, his story "Gone" won again in 2000—and in 2003 he won Stokers for both best collection for Peaceable Kingdom and best long fiction for Closing Time. He has written eleven novels, the latest of which are Red, Ladies' Night, and The Lost. His stories are collected in The Exit At Toledo Blade Boulevard, Broken on the Wheel of Sex, and Peaceable Kingdom. His novella The Crossings was cited by Stephen King in his speech at the 2003 National Book Awards.
