Scratch (Cemetery Dance Signature Series #7)
by Brian Keene
Featured Artist: Russell Dickerson
About the Book:
April showers bring May flowers. But as the rain-swollen creeks recede, the residents of one rural town learn that April showers also bring something far worse than destructive floods and property damage. This year, the April showers have brought a cryptozoological nightmare... Scratch.
This special edition also includes a reprint of Nick Mamatas's insightful interview with the author, which originally appeared in Cemetery Dance magazine.
