Nightscape

(2004)
A collection of stories by

 
 
By and large the kind of tales an author writes are metaphors for the scars in the nooks and crannies of his/her psyche. In David Morrell's youth, thrillers and horror stories provided an escape from his nightmarish reality. Is it any wonder that, as an adult obsessed with being a writer, he has compulsively turned to the types of stories that provided escape when he was a child? In his own words, perhaps he is eager to provide an escape for others. Or perhaps he is still trying to escape from his past. In each of the stories in this collection there is a theme: obsession and determination. A character gets and idea in his head, a hook on his emotions, a need that has to be fulfilled, and he does everything possible to carry through, no matter how difficult. Written with the haunting emotional intensity and lightning pace that has made David Morrell the master of high-action suspense writing, this collection of stories will leave you dazzled.
