Subterranean Press is proud to present a new, 30,000 word novella by Mira Grant, best-selling author of the Newsflesh series.
About the Book:
What if you could fix the worst parts of yourself by confronting your worst fears?
Dr. Jennifer Webb has invented proprietary virtual reality technology that purports to heal psychological wounds by running clients through scenarios straight out of horror movies and nightmares. In a carefully controlled environment, with a medical cocktail running through their veins, sisters might develop a bond they’ve been missing their whole lives—while running from the bogeyman through a simulated forest. But…can real change come so easily?
Esther Hoffman doubts it. Esther has spent her entire journalism career debunking pseudoscience, after phony regression therapy ruined her father’s life. She’s determined to unearth the truth about Dr. Webb’s budding company. Dr. Webb’s willing to let her, of course, for reasons of her own. What better advertisement could she get than that of a convinced skeptic? But Esther’s not the only one curious about how this technology works. Enter real-world threats just as frightening as those created in the lab. Dr. Webb and Esther are at odds, but they may also be each other’s only hope of survival.
With her new novella Final Girls, bestselling, award-winning author Mira Grant has conjured a heartstopping, gut-wrenching story filled with as many twists as it is versions of reality. Grant offers a chilling exploration of how surviving horrors might define us all.
From Publishers Weekly:
“Grant (Rise) delivers her trademark combo of unflinching horror and heartily genuine characters in this contemporary science fiction novella… Zombie fans will find the tale satisfyingly inside their niche; it’s fast-paced and deftly wrapped up.”
From Library Journal:
“Grant (‘Newsflesh’ series) packs a lot of action and terrifying thrills into a slender novella.”
