Title: The Fisherman


Do not read the back of this book! You won’t want to spoil any of this powerfully imaginative and richly emotive tale. John Langan manages to extend the dramatic pacing and deep world building of his acclaimed short stories into this full length offering with a wonderfully genre bending effect. Originally rejected from several publishers for being either too literary or too genre this is a book equally perfect for fans of both literary realism and Lovecraftian horror. The Fisherman is a beautifully written, shockingly expansive epic meditation on loss, recovery, and the monsters deep grief can threaten to transform us into.
