On Saturday, November 21st at 6pm, the Toadstool Bookshops in Keene, Peterborough, and Nashua will host the Bram Stoker Award-winning author Jonathan Maberry in conversation with Edgar Award winner J.W. Ocker in a lively conversation about Jonathan’s new novel, Ink, in a free, online Zoom event.
Jonathan Maberry’s new book, Ink, is a supernatural thriller about a memory thief, who feeds on the most precious of dreams. All through the town of Pine Deep people are having their most precious memories stolen. The monster seems to target the lonely, the disenfranchised, the people who need memories to anchor them to this world. Something is out there. Something cruel and evil is feeding on the memories, erasing them from the hearts and minds of ordinary people. Ink is the story of a few lonely, damaged people hunting for a memory thief. When all you have are memories, there is no greater horror than forgetting. In addition to discussing his newest book, Maberry and Ocker will discuss the craft of the writer; their process; their work; and more.
