Nick is a cool cat…with tentacles. This is a nice writeup. This book is on my To Read This Summer list. Put it on yours, too.
‘Nick Mamatas is the author of Move Under Ground, Under My Roof, and several other novels. But his latest, I Am Providence, looks like a breakout book.
Set at a horror convention, where a grisly murder leads to the discovery of an unspeakable horror in the pages of ancient book bound in human skin, I am Providence is narrated by a faceless corpse in a morgue.
Here’s a longer, official description…
Israeli author of award-winning speculative fiction (Osama, The Bookman, Camera Obscura) Lavie Tidhar says that “I am Providence is Dark and hilarious… that murder-mystery-in-a-writers-convention you didn’t even know you wanted.”
Publishers Weekly calls the novel: “A heartfelt homage to Lovecraft lore, [which] perfectly captures the antics of conventioneers.”
I Am Providence was published by Night Shade Books on August 9, 2016. It is 243 pages; priced at $16.99 in trade paperback, and $15.99 for the digital version.
