Booklist on At Home in the Dark, and a wee bit of Joe Hill movie news

At Home in the Dark edited by Lawrence Block

The Lawrence Block-edited anthology, At Home in the Dark, has just drawn its first couple of reviews.

Here's part of what Booklist had to say:

“Noir fiction comes in many forms, as multiple award–winning thriller and mystery writer Block points out in this stellar collection… These 17 original stories cross genres, styles, and settings with abandon, but they are all very dark indeed, from a James Reasoner western story to Joe R. Lansdale’s chilling ‘The Senior Girls Bayonet Drill Team,’ which depicts a high-school competition in which sport and butchery have joined hands.” 

And here's Publishers Weekly singling out a a few stories:

“One highlight is ‘The Senior Girls Bayonet Drill Team,’ a dystopian tale of a new arena blood sport, in which even Joe Lansdale—famed for gonzo excess—holds back on gore and piles on implication... A small portal in Maine gives big game hunters armed entry to Fairyland in Joe Hill’s unsettling ‘Faun.’”

Speaking of Joe Hill, his near-novella length tale, Faun,” was recently optioned by Netflix, with the following pitch presented to buyers:

Narnia. Hogwarts. Neverland. All magical places that mortals can travel to and marvel at the strange creatures and wonders not seen in our world.

What if a door to a magical land was discovered and instead of pure hearted adventures, a man saw an opportunity to charge a fortune for an exclusive private game reserve where you can “bag” a magical creature.

Multi-millionaire Tip Fallows is a recreational hunter looking for more interesting challenges. Another wealthy hunter, Stockton, has a secret to share and a journey to offer. All they need to do is pay a quarter of a million dollars to go through a little door in an old house in rural Maine.

We see a supernatural adventure film that bring a fresh magical take on The Most Dangerous Game.
