Jason Tray is a popular cartoonist that isn’t handling stress very well. (Actually, his striking out was kind of funny.) So his agent lends Jason his cabin in the woods by a lake in rural Georgia to spend some time relaxing and fishing and get his head to a good place. What could possibly go wrong?
One evening, Jason wanders into a local bar and ends up playing pool with some fine, upstanding, young local men. One beer leads to another, and the pool boys drag Jason out to the woods to catch a glimpse of a horribly disfigured monster, who is locally referred to as “Blister”, do to her her face covered with cuts and burns. Just some good clean backwoods fun.
Sobering up the next day, Jason is personally ashamed of his juvenile behavior, so he decides that he should go back to Blister’s cabin and apologize to her for being a dick. This “monster” is a young woman named Rachel who was violently assaulted by a rejected boyfriend a few years ago and has been hiding out from society since the assault in a cabin on her father’s woodsy property. The boyfriend hasn’t been seen since the night of the assault, and the townspeople assume he just ran away. Right.
One kindness leads to another and Jason the Rachel (aka “Blister”) begin to spend more and more time together. Oddly, this makes some of the local lads very unhappy, and they attempt to convince Jason to leave and never come back. Nothing suspicious there.
Jeff Strand can create an alternate reality of wacky horror, violence, and slapstick comedy that is just an unbelievable tale of craziness. He gives Jason an irreverent sense of sarcasm and dark humor that serve him well in navigating this backwoods nut house. All this is layered on a violent tale of crime and a search for justice that Jason has put in motion to the everlasting disapproval of almost everyone else wrapped up in this sordid mess. You will race through reading this book to see what happens next.
I am putting Jeff Strand on my “must read” list. He has the rare ability to make you laugh and cringe in horror at the same time.
Blister is a good story for those that are looking for a slightly different take on a friendship/romance plot
