Topic: Dweller by Jeff Strand

Hey guys, just thought I'd tell you about a new novel by Jeff Strand called Dweller. I'm pretty damn excited about it, probably because I'm a huge Jeff Strand fan.

Here's an excerpt from the back cover:

When Toby Floren was eight years old, he discovered a monster living in the woods behind his house. A ghastly, frightening creature with claws, fangs, and a taste for human flesh. As he ran out of the forest, screaming, Toby felt that he'd been lucky to escape with his life.

Years later, Toby finds comfort with the creature. It's his own special secret-something that nobody else in the world knows about. Somebody to talk to. Somebody to confide in. Sure, Toby has concerns about his own sanity, but really, what boy wouldn't want to be best friends with a monster in the woods, especially if he's being tormented by bullies? The creature, who he names Owen, may be the answer to his problems...

From Jeff Strand, the author of Pressure, comes the story of a macabre, decades-long friendship. A relationship that will last their entire lives, through times of happiness, tragedy, love, loss, madness, and complete darkness.

Dweller. The lifetime story of a boy and his monster.

I personally think this novel sounds freaking great and I can't wait to read it. Here's the link if you guys are interested:

I've had a copy for a while, on my overflowing "to read shelf".  Don't know what's taken me so long -- I need to crack DWELLER open soon.  Jeff's a great writer, and a great guy.
