March 28: 'Please Don't Leave Me' | Opposable Thumb Gallery | Free Spirits

Is it too early to look forward to Friday? (NO!)

On Friday, there is a book release, reading, and party at the Opposable Thumb Gallery. Many people probably don't know this place yet, but it was Kaiju (sp?), and it is between St. Cupcake and Laughing Planet on SE Belmont. I saw somewhere that there will be a free keg O' Beer there, and that works for me…Details sent over from Jaret Ferratusco:

Synopsis from back cover of the book:

'Please Don't Leave Me' Book Cover pictureWith these twelve stories, Jaret Ferratusco presents unsettling vignettes of people existing at the very fringes of self, society, and reality. Through investigations of the psychology of seemingly ordinary individuals —from the haunted confines of childhood to the void of isolation in adult life—these stories offer harrowing glimpses of a hidden world around us—a world that for some becomes inescapably and horribly real. In the tradition of the writings of H.P. Lovecraft, PLEASE DON'T LEAVE ME presents the reader with narratives that pit the conceits of the everyday and tactile world against an encroaching and undefined menace of horror and the macabre in a struggle for sanity, identity, and survival.
