As with most parties I’m probably late to this one.  M. Stephen Lukac has released his novels Oogie Boogie Central and Oogie Boogie Bounce as a Kindle book.  This is a book I  have been wanting to read for ages. My good friend Noige raved about this book when it first came out.  Now you can own it for less than the price of a pint. 

Footsteps echo in the darkness. We know not the passengers they carry. We cannot recognize their power, alleviate their burden, or understand their pain. We can never comprehend their sorrow, ease their loneliness, or experience their fear. The Gatherers and Hunters walk among us. They are everywhere, yet we do not know them. .But they know one another. Within its borders, what appears seldom is. The impossible is common. Identity is fluid. Death is not the end. Places exist not found on any maps, but they are there, known to those whose footsteps echo in the darkness. .Welcome to Oogie Boogie Central. Meet Milo Tucker, a quick-witted store detective, and Alex Harrison, a tragic youth who works in a bookstore. Their lives intersect when they confront Theodore Munsch, West Virginia’s most notorious serial killer, and both are forced to confront their greatest doubts, their deepest fears. .And a murderer who will not die. 

In Oogie Boogie Central, department store detective Milo Tucker discovered he is a Gatherer: a being capable of housing the memories and abilities of the dead. Milo and his six passengers faced the horror of serial killer Theodore Munsch after he gained the talents of a Hunter, a creature of similar-but lesser-power. A year later finds Milo still adjusting to his new status, and things aren’t going well. His wife fears he’s lost his mind and his best friend thinks he’s having an affair. Meanwhile, West Virginia’s mystic community knows there’s a new player on the field, and are anxious to capitalize on Milo’s condition. After all, who doesn’t want to live forever? And in the Appalachian woods, a rogue mage known as Salomé and his terrifying companion, The Baptist, have taken command of a Mountain State militia; the first step in their plans for domination and control. There’s only one thing they need to complete their arsenal: A psychic entity to feed The Baptist’s power. Something like a Gatherer with room for one more passenger.
