A Whole New, Very Strange World...
I've been writing more New Testament entries in my Five Minute Bible Story (TM) Series too, all set in the historical world of Israel, 2000 years ago. But all I have to do is research what the world was like, read the Bible, read a few other books, add characters and stir. (Follow the blog tour at http://sheiladeeth.blogspot.com/p/bethlehems-baby-tour.html.)
Meanwhile author Michael West has created a complete and believable contemporary town that's only outwardly normal. It exists in the author's and readers' imaginations, replete with history, geography and more, and it's peopled with fascinating characters, awesome scares, and gore. If you've never been to Harmony Indiana, be very careful with these books, or you'll quickly find yourself hooked....

About The Wide Game: On the advice of his wife, Paul Rice is making plans to attend his 10th year High School reunion. Returning to his boyhood home of Harmony, Indiana, he finds that he is still haunted by memories of that time-memories of Deidra, his first love, and memories of the Wide Game. It was ten years ago that Paul and his friends watched their day of fun become a race for their lives, a fight for their very souls. Now, as he meets the survivors of that day once more, Paul makes a chilling discovery: the incomprehensible forces that toyed with them have yet to finish playing their own game. The Wide Game is one of the Harmony, Indiana horror novels from Michael West, which also include Cinema of Shadows and Spook House.
