Mick's learning, and his schoolroom is a war
When sharpshooter and killer Mick Taylor searches for a place to keep a low profile, he finds somewhere where his peculiar talents are appreciated: a war. And in Vietnam, an out-of-control sergeant takes the amateur murderer and turns him into a pro.
Back home, Mick makes use of the sick lessons the army taught him, when hapless tour operators bring a Kombi-load of sightseers out his way into the Western Australian desert. Two suspicious flat tyres deliver an engaged Japanese couple, a father and son, a US army vet and his girlfriend, and a couple of cute girls to Mick's lair. Middle of nowhere, population one. The group finds themselves in hell, as Mick makes sure their once-in-a-lifetime tour stays that way. And though one of the drivers escapes and goes for help, Mick sees no reason to stop the killing spree.
In the second "Wolf Creek" prequel novel, the cult film's writer/director Greg Mclean and horror writer Brett McBean get to the heart of Australian horror's most terrifying psycho killer. Is Mick Taylor possessed by some dark power in the landscape itself? Something ancient? Does the Red Centre demand blood?
Greg Mclean came to world attention in 2005 with his debut feature film, "Wolf Creek," creating one of Australia's most memorable and horrific characters, Mick Taylor (played by John Jarratt). The cult film's sequel will be released in February 2014. Mclean also wrote and directed "Rogue" (2007) and was executive producer of "Red Hill" (2012) and "Crawlspace" (2013). He is the author of the four-part comic book series "Dark Axis: Secret Battles of WW2."
Brett McBean is an award-winning horror and thriller author. His books, which include "The Mother," "The Last Motel" and "The Awakening," have been published in Australia, the US and Germany, and he's been nominated for the Aurealis, Ditmar, and Ned Kelly awards. He won the 2011 Australian Shadows Award for his collection, "Tales of Sin and Madness." Along with a strong interest in music (he has an Advanced Diploma in Music Performance from Box Hill College) he is an avid film-buff and owns a vast (and ever-growing) movie collection. He lives in Melbourne with his wife, daughter and German shepherd.
