9780765319111: Dark Harvest

Winner of the Bram Stoker Award and named one of the 100 Best Novels of 2006 by Publishers Weekly, Dark Harvest by Norman Patridge is a powerhouse thrill-ride with all the resonance of Shirley Jackson's "The Lottery."

Halloween, 1963. They call him the October Boy, or Ol' Hacksaw Face, or Sawtooth Jack. Whatever the name, everybody in this small Midwestern town knows who he is. How he rises from the cornfields every Halloween, a butcher knife in his hand, and makes his way toward town, where gangs of teenage boys eagerly await their chance to confront the legendary nightmare. Both the hunter and the hunted, the October Boy is the prize in an annual rite of life and death.

Pete McCormick knows that killing the October Boy is his one chance to escape a dead-end future in this one-horse town. He's willing to risk everything, including his life, to be a winner for once. But before the night is over, Pete will look into the saw-toothed face of horror--and discover the terrifying true secret of the October Boy . . .

"This is contemporary American writing at its finest."--Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Dark Harvest

About the Author:

A two-time Stoker Award-winner, NORMAN PARTRIDGE has published three short story collections, several comics, and five novels. Partridge lives in California.

From Booklist:

*Starred Review* Only six years have passed since this Bram Stoker Award–winning novel was published and already it has the aura of a classic. Though the story takes place in 1963, the lack of specifics makes it timeless, and from the opening words, Partridge’s dire campfire tale feels like it’s been around forever: “A Midwestern town. You know its name. You were born there.” Each Halloween, as is tradition in this Everytown, U.S.A., able-bodied teen boys are let loose into the night with crude weapons to chase down the October Boy (aka Ol’ Hacksaw Face or Sawtooth Jack), a “reaper that grows in the field, the merciless trick with a heart made of treats.” He’s a candy-stuffed scarecrow bodied with writhing vines and topped with a jack-o’-lantern head, and if he’s not killed before midnight, the town, in some indescribable way, will end. But this year the truth of the October Boy’s annual regenesis is uncovered by young Pete, whose blood-spattered night takes a turn different than any in the ritual’s storied history. Partridge drops us in the middle of a cornfield crackling with rural madness, and readers won’t pause to question silly things like logic or reason. Instead they will float along with the dreamy present-tense voice; succumb to the autumnal, sensory details (the October Boy smells like “scorched cinnamon, and gunpowder, and melted wax”); and root for Pete despite the feeling that nothing truly good can result from his success. Required reading for Halloween—unless you’d like to incur the wrath of Sawtooth Jack? --Daniel Kraus
