“Everything begins at Midnight”: Charlaine Harris, bestselling author of the Sookie Stackhouse books, sees her new novel, Midnight Crossroad out from Gollancz in May (£18.99).
“Welcome to Midnight, Texas, a town with many boarded-up windows and few full-time inhabitants, located at the crossing of Witch Light Road and Davy Road. It’s a pretty standard dried-up western town.
There’s a pawnshop (someone lives in the basement and is seen only at night). There’s a diner (people who are just passing through tend not to linger). And there’s new resident Manfred Bernardo, who thinks he’s found the perfect place to work in private (and who has secrets of his own).
Stop at the one traffic light in town, and everything looks normal. Stay awhile, and learn the truth…”
Charlaine Harris is a Guest of Honour at FantasyCon 2014, this year held in the ancient city of York.
