    For who like BL (Shannon, me, Patriot45, and Ginger) he has a new novel due out August 5th, called The Academy.

    Let me guess: in a semi-isolated high school in the American Southwest, a transfer student suddenly realizes that the faculty of the school are part of an unholy cabal aligned with the Forces of Darkness. Can our hero survive?

    Did I win anything? :p

    Read The Store. This typifies his themes and interests and contains all of his usual motifs. It's also an interesting take on commercialism and greed. ;)

    That would have been my guess. That was pretty much the plot of The Store and The Postman and the one other one of his that I read before I lost the will to go on with the series.

    Not a series, per se, Bijou, just his trademark, I guess. He HAS published a few novels minus the "The" in the title, but it seems that he has no trouble publishing novels. Personally, I really enjoyed The Resort, which I read last year. All his books are enjoyable, I think, but some better than others. I like his writing style.

    Here's the publisher's Book Info at Amazon.com



    Something strange is happening at Tyler High. The laid-back principal has become unusually strict. The janitors no longer work nights because of what they hear. The students are frightened by what they see. And things are happening on school grounds that defy rational explanation. But there is an explanation. It’s just nothing that anyone can begin to believe—or hope to survive.
