We’re going to give Terry another try and liking Stephen King, so the next book we’ll discuss is his second book, SALEM’S LOT. Read and review along with us!

This week’s promo – HAPAX, a forthcoming novel from Dragon Moon Press in October, written by Katie Bryski. It will also be released as a podcast starting in September.
