Cover Reveal for the Re-Issue of Michael West Novel The Wide Game!
Seventh Star Press is proud to reveal the new cover art from the award-winning Matthew Perry for the re-issue of Michael West’s The Wide Game, a Harmony, Indiana Novel!
The 2nd edition of The Wide Game was edited by Amanda DeBord and joins other novels from West such as Cinema of Shadows and Spook House in taking horror fans into the fascinating and often dangerous realm of Harmony, Indiana.
In The Wide Game, Paul Rice, on the advice of his wife, is making plans to attend his 10th year High School reunion. Returning to his boyhood home of Harmony, Indiana, he finds that he is still haunted by memories of that time–memories of Deidra, his first love, and memories of the Wide Game. It was ten years ago that Paul and his friends watched their day of fun become a race for their lives, a fight for their very souls.
Now, as he meets the survivors of that day once more, Paul makes a chilling discovery: the incomprehensible forces that toyed with them have yet to finish playing their own game.
Originally published in trade paperback by Graveside Tales, The Wide Game was the first Harmony, Indiana novel released, but has never before been made available in hardcover and eBook formats. Michael recently commented on the re-release, and the expanded availability in more formats.
“The Wide Game was my first novel, and it holds a special place in my heart and the hearts of all my faithful readers everywhere. This is something they have been requesting for years! Not a day goes by without messages and emails asking me when The Wide Game would be available as an eBook. Still others have asked if it would ever be available in hardcover. I am thrilled that Seventh Star Press will now be offering the work in both formats, and I hope that even more readers will now get to see how the Harmony, Indiana series all began.”
Michael is the critically-acclaimed author of Cinema of Shadows, Spook House, Skull Full of Kisses, and The Legacy of the Gods series. He lives and works in the Indianapolis area with his wife, their two children, their bird, Rodan, their turtle, Gamera, and their dog, King Seesar.
He has made certain there are no cornfields near his home.
The Wide Game will be released in trade paperback and eBook formats during the beginning of June, with a limited edition hardcover to follow.
