Arthur Slade's DUST

A while back I believe I mentioned Arthur Slade's novel Dust, which has been compared to Bradbury's Something Wicked This Way Comes and Stephen King's Needful Things.

I haven't read Dust yet, but I have browsed the opening chapters and find it quite appealing. In fact, I was fortunate to spot that, for a while, it was available as a free download in Kindle format, which is how I came by it. (The freebie was short-lived, although it's still quite cheap as an e-book: check out the pricing at Amazon and Amazon UK.)

On his own website, Arthur Slade has posted an appreciation of Bradbury's work, which ends with a reproduction of a letter from Bradbury. Bradbury wrote to him to thank him for dedicating Dust to him. Read more here.
