Dean Koontz's Wilderness
is like a short-story snow globe. Read it once, and you'll discover an upbeat, high-stakes adventure as a boy's sojourn in the woods turns into a breakneck chase. Let it settle. Then return, and you'll find a bristling cautionary tale of the grotesque, and of humanity's often murderous response to that which we fear or simply do not understand. (There are "many kinds of wilderness," the narrator insists, and "the human heart can be the bleakest and the most hostile.") Fans of Edgar Allen Poe, Shirley Jackson, and other macabre fabulists will all find that this weird little yarn rewards multiple readings, a precious and prismatic treasure to return to in moments of "solitude in a world made for sharing." --Jason Kirk
