"My name is Brian Keene. I'm a writer by trade and a road warrior by heart. Neither of these things are wise career or life choices. The tolls add up.
Over the last twenty years, things have changed. Book tours have changed, publishing has changed, bookselling has changed, conventions have changed, horror fictionâ€”and the horror genreâ€”have changed. I've changed, too.
The only things that haven't changed are writing and the road. They stay the same. The words we type today are the past tomorrow. Everything is connected like the highways on a map are connected. This holds true for the history of our genre, as well.
I rode into town twenty years ago. Now I'm riding out. You're all coming with me..."
So begins Brian Keene's End of the Roadâ€”a memoir, travelogue, and post-Danse Macabre examination of modern horror fiction, the people who write it, and the world they liveâ€”and dieâ€”in. Exhilarating, emotional, heartfelt, and at times hilarious, End of the Road is a must-read for fans of the horror genre. Introduction by Gabino Iglesias.
