Release date: March 11, 2016
Genres: Horror, Weird, Literary
From the World Fantasy Award-winning author of Do You Like to Look at Monsters? and Ana Kai Tangata . . .
Scott Nicolay’s NOCTUIDAE follows a trio of hikers into the savage heart of an Arizona canyon. Far from any sign of living civilization, and with no way to call for help, the trip goes from wrong to worse when one of the hikers turns up missing. The remaining two find themselves stranded in a shallow cave, suspicious of each other and desperate to survive until sunrise, praying that whatever’s out there won’t hear them.
“We are not in the presence of a callow and bullish youth, but a man of erudition and experience. Nicolay is one who has seen much, endured much, has undergone prolonged pressure and the result is a diamond among stones.”
—Laird Barron, author of THE BEAUTIFUL THING THAT AWAITS US ALL
“Nicolay’s punch is grim and honest, his horizons vast, alluring, and keenly attuned to what unfurls in our darkest dreams.”
—Joseph S. Pulver, Sr, author of BLOOD WILL HAVE ITS SEASON
"Written with accomplished style and carefully constructed atmospherics that arise from natural surroundings, Noctuidae further cements Nicolay as a weird force to be reckoned with."
—David Bowles, THE MONITOR
