Northshire Bookstore is thrilled to partner with the Independent Television Fest (ITV Fest) to present the first of two special book signings. Join us at 4:00 PM on Friday, October 12th for a book signing with Billy Hanson for the release of his new book Spider Season!
Spider Season is the debut collection of 10 dark stories by Billy Hanson, with stunning illustrations by Karl Slominski. Deeply haunting and immensely enjoyable, these stories are sure to leave you wide-eyed and breathing heavily. A man obsessed with his own death, a sleep-deprived husband, a violently jealous teenager, and a businesswoman on a lethal trip to Europe, are just a few of the characters from Billy Hanson's dark vision of the world in Spider Season. Here, the danger looms within every stranger, co-worker, close friend, family member, and often within your own mind. This chilling collection explores the shadowy corners of the human psyche, where delusion, rage, and paranoia can thrive. Grim fantasy and nightmarish realities collide, monsters and men are one in the same, and daily life can suddenly turn to bloody horror. Because when Spider Season comes around, fear is everywhere.
"Creepy, sometimes frightening, sometimes downright disturbing. Hanson crafts the perfect book for the horror-lover in your life. With varying story lengths and even a few short film scripts included, Spider Season is an unexpected take on people's darkest impulses."
- Brea Grant, Reading Glasses Podcast
