Footsteps echo in the darkness. We know not the passengers they carry. We cannot recognize their power, alleviate their burden, or understand their pain. We can never comprehend their sorrow, ease their loneliness, or experience their fear. The Gatherers and Hunters walk among us. They are everywhere, yet we do not know them.

...But they know one another.

Overview

Footsteps echo in the darkness. We know not the passengers they carry. We cannot recognize their power, alleviate their burden, or understand their pain. We can never comprehend their sorrow, ease their loneliness, or experience their fear. The Gatherers and Hunters walk among us. They are everywhere, yet we do not know them.

...But they know one another.

Within its borders, what appears seldom is. The impossible is common. Identity is fluid. Death is not the end. Places exist not found on any maps, but they are there, known to those whose footsteps echo in the darkness.

...Welcome to Oogie Boogie Central.

Meet Milo Tucker, a quick-witted store detective, and Alex Harrison, a tragic youth who works in a bookstore. Their lives intersect when they confront Theodore Munsch, West Virginia's most notorious serial killer, and both are forced to confront their greatest doubts, their deepest fears.

...And a murderer who will not die.

Editorial Reviews

Don D'Ammassa
Lukac writes quite fluently and entertainingly ... these are better than a good portion of the fiction I've read from the big guys this past year.
Norman Rubenstein
...a very interesting concept and mythos that he is slowly revealing throughout the initial two novels. However, author Lukac has made certain to leave a great deal as yet unexplained - and leaves the reader wanting more. A great premise, wonderfully engaging characters, riveting plotlines, exceptional writing talent - all of these contribute to, and equal two exceptional books. Both OOGIE BOOGIE CENTRAL and OOGIE BOOGIE BOUNCE are "must-reads" and receive my highest recommendation.

Meet the Author

M Stephen Lukac is a married father of three, a professional bookseller and a still-aspiring writer. OOGIE BOOGIE CENTRAL was released in 2003, followed by BUT THEN AGAIN, YOU'LL HAVE THIS... later that year. In February 2008, Delirium Books released the long-awaited sequel OOGIE BOOGIE BOUNCE, simultaneously with a new edition of CENTRAL.

Steve's also a bit of a smart ass, which will come as no surprise to regular readers.

He loves stories set in coherent worlds, where the rules and situations –no matter how fantastic they may be- remain consistent across the author’s body of work. Experiencing the creation of a fictional universe –whether overt or subtle- is akin to peeking over God’s shoulder. Inhabiting those creations, regardless of the medium, is his second favorite thing.

His favorite thing is definitely not talking about himself in the third person.
