About the Book:
Crashed UFOs. Dead aliens on ice. Extraterrestrial visitations. This is all the stuff of crackpot conspiracy nuts, right?
A stolen military weapon. A maladjusted little boy who sees "things" at night, and the best professional assassin in the world sent to kill him. And a washed-up journalist who's just been told the most important secret of all time.
Welcome to the realm of The Stickmen, novelist Edward Lee's latest slam-dunk, edge-of-your-seat fictional effort. Here, Lee abandons his hardcore horror roots and perfects one of the most relentless thrillers yet in this age of government subterfuge, disinformation, and conspiracies within conspiracies.
Edward Lee's distant creative endeavors include more hardcore horror novels, a political thriller, a military tech thriller, a "true-life" thriller, a pop-literati abstraction for which he just won a modest grant, several horror scripts and God knows what else. His favorite horror novel is Our Lady of Darkness by Fritz Leiber; favorite short story, "Loveman's Comeback" by Ramsey Campbell; most influential author, H.P. Lovecraft.
