SSP cover reveal. The Wide Game by Michael West re-issue

Can I just say I don’t remember the last time I was this excited about a book release. This book is one that I know will be released in limited edition signed hardcover as Seventh Star Press does with all its books published. As soon as the buy link is posted I’m snatching one up. Yep like asap. Michael is just the sweetest; perfect for a horror author lol but his book The Wide Game was his first book and its a hard one to find. It’s now out of print with the original publisher but SSP will be re-issuing it. I have heard it’s his best work and have been dying to get my grubby little reader paws on it which I will now be able to do. Join me in the excitement and be sure to get your own copy, with a cover like this how could you say no. It has me dying for a copy.


In The Wide Game, Paul Rice, on the advice of his wife, is making plans to attend his 10th year High School reunion.  Returning to his boyhood home of Harmony, Indiana, he finds that he is still haunted by memories of that time–memories of Deidra, his first love, and memories of the Wide Game.  It was ten years ago that Paul and his friends watched their day of fun become a race for their lives, a fight for their very souls.

Now, as he meets the survivors of that day once more, Paul makes a chilling discovery: the incomprehensible forces that toyed with them have yet to finish playing their own game.

Originally published in trade paperback by Graveside Tales, The Wide Game was the first Harmony, Indiana novel released, but has never before been made available in hardcover and eBook formats.  Michael recently commented on the re-release, and the expanded availability in more formats.

“The Wide Game was my first novel, and it holds a special place in my heart and the hearts of all my faithful readers everywhere.  This is something they have been requesting for years!  Not a day goes by without messages and emails asking me when The Wide Game would be available as an eBook.  Still others have asked if it would ever be available in hardcover.  I am thrilled that Seventh Star Press will now be offering the work in both formats, and I hope that even more readers will now get to see how the Harmony, Indiana series all began.”
