Don’t Read This Book – Sean’s Pick, 102017

We close out Monica Valentinelli Week with another fiction offering from not only her, but a host of some of the greatest writers in our hobby’s firmament. Edited by the irrepressible Chuck Wendig and also featuring tales of sleepless madness from Rich Dansky, Matt Forbeck, Laura Anne Gilman, Will Hindmarch, Mur Lafferty, Robin D. Laws, and Greg Stolze, this is a perfect Pick for the days running up to All Hallow’s Eve.

Down a lonely alleyway, under a starless sky, lies a city that never was, yet is: the Mad City, where nightmares walk the streets, and a good night’s sleep can get you killed.

Here, then, is a book from that place. Within these recovered pages are the tales of the Awake, insomniacs who’ve walked those perilous streets, bringing a bit of the power of dream with them to fight back the night—always at a terrible cost.

For many, it will not end well. For a few, they might just become heroes—or at least find their way back home.

For you, a choice. Turn away. Don’t read this book. And maybe you’ll continue to rest easy. Or open the cover and enter a world unlike any you’ve ever dared to imagine…
