Overview

Considered by many critics to be one of Brian Keene's best works, The Girl on the Glider has been long out of print – until now!

The year is 2009, and the world's financial and publishing sectors are in chaos. In the midst of this disarray, a burned-out horror writer finds himself haunted by a variety of ghosts, both real and metaphorical. And as the ghosts increase their attacks, his struggle to make a living quickly becomes a fight to hold on to his family – and his very sanity.

This meta-fictional take on the traditional, old-fashioned ghost story is a deft mix of M.R. James and Hunter S. Thompson, and makes for one of Keene's most personal and powerful novellas.

First time in digital. Includes a brand-new Afterword by the author.

An absolute must-read for Keene fans. Dark and sentimental at the same time. Very insiteful and touching.
