An Evening with Benjamin Percy with guest host Jeremiah Chamberlin at City Opera House.
They live among us. They are your neighbor, your mother, your lover. They change. Ben Percy was thinking about what society fears now, decided it was terrorism and disease, and sat down and began writing Red Moon – the world’s first 9/11 werewolf book.
On its surface Percy’s book may be about werewolves but he deftly transcends genre trappings and transports the werewolf to modern America and the war on terror. The plot follows three interlocking strands and moves at a breakneck speed, ultimately exploring the insidious evil in all of us and our society.
It has been hailed as Amazon Best Book of the Month in May, 2013, the "most anticipated book" of 2013 by Publisher’s Weekly, and the New York Times called the paranormal thriller "imaginative and lots of fun."
Percy is also the author of The Wilding as well as two books of short stories, Refresh, Refresh and The Language of Elk.
He is currently working on the screenplay adaptation of The Wilding and on a novel called The Dead Lands.
Jeremiah Chamberlin is the Associate Director of the English Department Writing Program at the University of Michigan and a Contributing Editor for Poets & Writers Magazine. He is also the Editor-in-Chief and Publisher of the online literary journal Fiction Writers Review.
