CSFF Tour Day 1 - The Strange Man

April - the month that should herald in spring. In Idaho it is ushering in strange weather. Well, not really - our weather usually stinks this time of year. But it is also the month to introduce The Strange Man  to you, courtesy of new author Greg Mitchell and the Christian Sci-fi and Fantasy tour.

We're in the midst of a supernatural suspense kick. Last month we featured Mike Duran and his book The Resurrection. In June we have Darkness Follows by Mike Dellosso. We've done runs of fantasy, blocks of YA speculative fiction. If you're in the mood for a supernatural scare, then we are the place to be.

The Strange Man is Greg's debut novel. It has a haunting cover and an interesting premise.

The town of Greensboro is a typical town that is struggling with new highways and more interesting things to do in its neighbors. The people are holding on to what they've had in the past, except for their faith. That seems to be slipping away, and someone is noticing this.

Dras Weldon is your typical adult adolescent, not willing to grow up and out of his world of comic books, action figures, and B horror movies. The fact that his childhood best friend Rosalyn is looking to actually move on from Greensboro isn't helping. He is tired of hearing criticism from his older brother, the pastor, as well.

When The Strange Man decides the time is ripe for Greensboro's harvest, Dras is an unlikely combatant. He doesn't have anything to fight with, unless he can reconnect with his withered faith in time.

Below you'll find what our other tourmates are saying. Tomorrow I'll be reviewing The Strange Man, and Wednesday I'm planning to talk about an interesting character in the book - unless the tour surprises me with something else. It has before!
