Flypaper is a strange little novel. It is creepy in a good way, not very long and has an aspect to it that keeps you on the edge of your seat wondering how this is all going to end. It is the first book in what is going to be an ongoing series of stories about a writer holed up in the woods in small town U.S. A., trying to write horror stories.
Nick Dawkins is not well liked by the locals except for the local grocers. He is a thorn in the side of the sheriff’s department due to a constant stream of phone calls reporting nuisances to his residence. As the book opens, a crazed fan has invaded Nick’s sanctuary, not for the first time.
There is also a creepy group of followers who were kicked off the writer’s fan site due to the explicit and outrageous ideas and opinions they express about Nick. They have a particular brand of fandom that goes way beyond what is considered average or normal and is actually very scary.
A super fan manages to ensnare Nick and a number of things happen that get progressively more weird and stalker-ish in nature. No spoilers but the end of this book opens the door to what will be the next in this series of books.
I’m not sure if I will get the next book or not but it was just strange enough and eccentric enough to pique my interest and anything is possible!
