Torna Novecento Fantastico con Tom Reamy

Disponibile a partire da giovedì 13 maggio San Diego Lightfoot Sue, undici racconti fantastici dell’americano Tom Reamy, originariamente pubblicati tra il 1974 e il 1979.
I protagonisti di questi racconti sono spesso creature incontaminate, sia che si tratti di adolescenti, di freaks o di emarginati. Ai loro occhi si apre un realtà diversa, “magica”, un mondo ammantato da un senso di stupore e mistero, e che nasconde verità a volte spaventose, altre semplicemente “strane”.

Il volume, che sarà disponibile in versione sia cartacea che digitale, è già ordinabile sul nostro sito a questo link.

Inoltre giovedì 13 maggio alle ore 21:00 sarà possibile seguire sulla nostra pagina Facebook e sul nostro canale YouTube la presentazione del volume, a cura di Andrea Vaccaro. All’interno della stessa trasmissione saranno anche annunciati i finalisti dell’ottava edizione del Premio Hypnos.
