Blackwater (1983) by Michael McDowell, introduction by Nathan Ballingrud

Book Description

Blackwater is the saga of a small town, Perdido, Alabama, and Elinor Dammert, the stranger who arrives there under mysterious circumstances on Easter Sunday, 1919. On the surface, Elinor is gracious, charming, anxious to belong in Perdido, and eager to marry Oscar Caskey, the eldest son of Perdido’s first family. But her beautiful exterior hides a shocking secret. Beneath the waters of the Perdido River, she turns into something terrifying, a creature whispered about in stories that have chilled the residents of Perdido for generations. Some of those who observe her rituals in the river will never be seen again ...

Nocturnal Readers Box???"


Uh oh. Haha.

It's a monthly subscription service. You get a mystery box in the mail containing a few books and a couple of other items. For October Valancourt is included.
