STRAIGHT ON 'TIL MORNING by CHRISTOPHER GOLDEN
ALL-NEW EDITION NOW AVAILABLE!
"An imaginative and prodigious talent who never lets genre boundaries hold him back." -- Douglas Clegg, author of You Come When I Call You
It is the summer of 1981, the last three months of freedom for Kevin Murphy and his friends before they begin high school. The last chance to hang at the mall and goof off. And Kevin's last chance to confess his unrequited love for Nicole French.
But Nikki has a new boyfriend -- a rough eighteen-year-old named Pete Starling. Kevin knows Pete's no good for Nikki. And now Pete and his gang have taken Nikki away. To rescue her, Kevin and his friends must follow them into a land they were never even meant to know about. A life they cannot imagine.
A place from which they may never return...
Hailed by Peter Straub as "wildly inventive," Christopher Golden presents a story of lost innocence in a realm where one's wildest dreams -- or darkest nightmares -- can come true.
Straight on 'til Morning was re-released on September 5th, 2006. This is the first time the title has been made available in the trade size, which is also known as oversized paperback. The new edition features a brand-new cover, a new introduction by the author, and a bonus short story, Runaway, which goes a little something like this:
On the night when eleven year old Kevin Murphy's father takes off for good, his parents' last fight drives him from the house. He runs away, hiding out in the tree fort he and his brother built in the woods at the top of their street. But Kevin isn't the only runaway in the woods that night . . .
