THE BOYS ARE BACK IN TOWN
From a master of horror, dark fantasy, and suspense comes a compelling and uniquely original work of paranormal suspense in which one man finds himself trapped in a web of ever-shifting reality which threatens to remake the whole of the world — unless he can find a way to stop it.
For Will James, facing his tenth high school reunion is far from his finest hour, especially since his life has not gone exactly as he planned. Dumped at the altar by his high school sweetheart and with his dreams of being a prize-winning reporter dashed by his job at a Boston tabloid, he is not sure he is ready to face his former peers.But what he does find at the reunion is far more than he bargained for. He soon learns that one of his buddies had died several years back — even though Will had received an e-mail from him only a few days before. It is not long before other people Will was convinced were alive are turning out to be dead as well, or married to other people, or childless where they used to have children. And new memories are swarming in to replace what Will is convinced was his old life, until he no longer knows what is real and what is not. The only thing he does know for certain is that he has to figure out why he alone remembers snatches of another life before everything dissolves into this new, darker reality.

Advanced praise includes:
"In his latest well-crafted horror novel, Stoker-winner Golden presents a nostalgic, unsentimental portrait of adolescence. Golden addresses the issue of how one’s identity is intimately bound to the memory of one’s experiences: change the memory and the personality is changed. Suspenseful plot and strong atmosphere. Golden remains someone to watch." —Publishers Weekly
“Christopher Golden is one of the most hard-working, smartest, and most talented writers of his generation, and his books are so good and so involving that they really ought to sell in huge numbers. Everything he writes glows with imagination.”
—Peter Straub, author of Lost Boy, Lost Girl
“Christopher Golden collides the ordinary and the supernatural with wonderfully unsettling results. The Boys Are Back in Town is a wicked little thriller. Rod Serling would have loved it.”
—Max Allan Collins, author of Road to Perdition
“Christopher Golden is the master of the slow creep—the kind of story that sneaks out of the everyday, so quietly, that you don’t realize anything is really amiss until the world seems to shift and the ground gets all spongy underfoot. Golden has a wonderfully smooth prose style—the payoff is immense. And intense. The Boys Are Back in Town is an eerie, fascinating tale . . . with style and heart, and a cast of characters that you can’t help but like.”
—Charles De Lint, author of Spirits in the Wires
“Harkens back to classic Stephen King. A harrowing, paranormal time-trip. You won’t want to put it down.”
—Dark Realms magazine
