Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Thank you for considering Agroland.  This is not my first scary story.  Atten years old my first attempts at writing complete stories were blatant ripoffs of the H.G. Wells Morlock scene, which I had read, and John Carpenter'smovie The Fog, which I had not seen.  Thelatter being the most original of the two as my version stemmed from the movietrailer and, rather than the pirates of the movie I would watch years later,incorporated what I can only now describe as a Lovecraftian monster.  I even made a real book out of the fog storyas part of a sixth grade class project, with illustrations, binding, andwallpaper glued to a cardboard book cover.The story made an impression on my fellow students and teachers (animpression that was entered into my permanent record).
 
Another project we had later that year was to create a classyearbook.  Each of us was assignedanother student to interview and from that information, we placed an entry oneach of the topic pages.  The page thathas always stuck with me was the prediction page.  The prediction page was a careerforecast.  We did not tell our interviewerswhat to write, they were to come up with the prediction from their ownaccord.  Many of the predictions wereexpected for children of the seventies, girls were going to be mothers and boyswere going to be sports stars and truck drivers.  I have kept a copy of that yearbook all ofthese years, a fading stack of stapled paper printed on an old ink mimeograph,because of what my interviewer predicted for my future.  I have held onto to the copy as one holds apaper from a fortune cookie or a horoscope they wish to be true.  Though the genre is not that specific to meand my path has covered half the planet on the way here, I took what the otherstudent wrote as a matter of destiny.Now the prediction has become fulfilled, 'Dan is going to be the authorof scary books'.
 
The are numerous contributors that bring a project tocompletion, my family first and foremost, a myriad of fellow authors andfriends on twitter, and countless others.
Individually I want to thank author Lon Grover, and mylovely wife, floral designer Susan Holt.Even though horror is not their genre, they supported the project bydiligently reading the first draft.  Iwould also like to thank the readers that signed up as First Readers for thismanuscript as their contributions have helped me to create a better releaseedition.  Agroland was written in thefirst person and I was assured that the narrator is not at all someone whowould speak in my style.  For the firsttime editing meant simplifying vernacular wherever possible.
 
If you enjoyed Agroland, I would appreciate if you wouldshare your thoughts in a review.  Reviewshelp other readers that may have similar interest as you decide whether this isa story they would like to read.
And again thank you.
