My Summer Lair Chapter #131: When Was The Last Time You Went Out Into The Woods…Alone?
Vintage Twilight Zone episodes began with Rod Serling providing a narration effectively introducing viewers to the fifth dimension (beyond that which is known to man). Similarly, Suicide Woods is now an established Benjamin Percy dimension; it is a tour through his foreboding imagination, as if you took a cold winter vacation…from reality.
Benjamin Percy makes his My Summer Lair return with Suicide Woods: 9 short stories and one novella, each of them a slot machine of disconcerting fear.
The following words are found throughout the stories in Suicide Woods:
- Winter – 8 times
- Snow – 29 times
- Cold – 36 times
- Trees – 37 times
- Wind – 40 times
So clearly this book is ideal for this season when the fallen leaves crunch underfoot and the wind slowly beings to chill.
Walking in the Woods Ben and I get into his other keyboard adventures: writing the Wolverine Marvel podcast…he’ll begin writing Wolverine for Marvel as well as X-Force both related to Hickman’s sublime and staggering Dawn of X.
For more on Suicide Woods you can read my review (review my review?) in Geek Hard.
And finally all the horror. Halloween…October this is Ben’s “Christmas” it’s a special time of year and I’m grateful he found some time to spend with me as we get into the shadows.
