    The author's second novel, The Book of Days, consists of a short story told each day by a man trying to talk himself back to sanity. A kind of literary sampler quilt, these daily inventions emulate the styles of everything from traditional ghost stories to the works of O'Henry and James Whitcomb Riley, from westerns to 50s' science-fiction to boy's own adventure stories. As a sequence illustrating the narrator's deep internal struggle, these dark stories take on additional weight, making each one a sharp shock that builds to an electrifying whole.

    The Deadfall Hotel is where our nightmares go, it’s where the dead pause to rest between worlds, and it’s where Richard Carter and his daughter Serena go to rediscover life - if the things at the hotel don’t kill them first. Think of it as the vacation resort of the collective unconscious. With the powerful prose that has earned him awards and accolades, Steve Rasnic Tem explores the roots of fear and society’s fascination with things horrific, using the many-layered metaphor of the Deadfall Hotel.
