Thomas Olde Heuvelt - 'Hex'
Thomas Olde Heuvelt joins us on Monday, August 1, at 7 pm with Hex. In this English language debut by the Dutch novelist — and Hugo and World Fantasy award nominee — a 17th century woman accused of witchcraft puts a curse on the town before being put to death. Now in the 21st century, the townspeople must keep their secret or face death themselves. To ensure that the residents conform, a team monitors input from 24/7 surveillance. But is the town really safe, especially in the age of social media? This new voice in dark fantasy will have you keeping your lights on if you read this at night. “Heuvelt offers up a truly terrifying parable about mankind’s depravity and the depths of evil of which we are capable… The story is not merely unsettling, it is horrifying.” —Kirkus Reviews
