More About This Title The Midnight Games
When Nate sneaks into Ivor Wynne Stadium to check out the midnight games that are keeping his neighborhood up at night, he knew something wasn’t right, but he had no idea how strange—and deadly—things would be. He has stumbled upon one of the rituals of the Resurrection Church of the Ancients, and soon his days and nights are dogged by ancient books, giant centipedes, and geometric curses that bring death down upon you in the form of glowing hounds. In this thrilling young adult novel, set in gritty, postindustrial Hamilton, David Neil Lee blends the rich horror of H. P. Lovecraft with the pace of a modern mystery.
David Neil Lee is a writer, double bassist, and the author of The Battle of the Five Spot: Ornette Coleman and the New York Jazz Field and Commander Zero. He lives in Hamilton, Ontario.
“David Neil Lee has written a probing story . . . knife-edge writing, excellent pacing. Lee is a strong storyteller with powerful moments of insight and resolution.” —Don Graves, Hamilton Spectator, on Commander Zero“Has descriptions of the BC coastal mountains and shadowy waters that are mythopoetic rich as Gwendolyn MacEwen, and vivid portrayal of coastal life and the community of rural fishers and loggers with all its intrigue, relationships, and small details of daily life.” —Gary Barwin, author, Seeing Stars, on Co?mmander Zero
