Where: Salem Downtown Book Bin

Matt Ruff will be reading from his newest book Lovecraft Country at the Salem Downtown Book Bin on Friday April 15th at 7pm.  Matt’s new novel is a mix of historical fiction and lovecraftian horror.  Here are some of the things reviewers are saying about it.

Lovecraft Country rubs the pervasive, eldritch dread of Lovecraft’s universe against the very real, historical dread of Jim Crow America, and sparks fly. A brilliantly conceived story brilliantly executed. Matt Ruff renders a very high-concept, imaginary world with such vividness that you can’t help but feel it’s disturbingly real.” — Christopher Moore, author of Lamb and A Dirty Job

“Another ‘only Matt Ruff could do this’ production. Lovecraft Country takes the unlikeliest of premises and spins it into a funny, fast, exciting and affecting read.” — Neal Stephenson, author of Snow Crash and Cryptonomicon
