January Book Club Selection: 'The Least of My Scars' by Stephen Graham Jones

LitReactor Book Club

Every month here at LitReactor, we celebrate reading with a new selection in our Book Club. For January we will be reading and discussing The Least of My Scars by Stephen Graham Jones.  Here's a synopsis:

You haven't heard of William Colton Hughes. Or, if you have, then you're not telling anybody. Not telling them anything, ever. He's not the serial killer on the news, in the textbooks. He's the one out there still punching his card, and a few other people's too. He is a nightmare come to life, waiting in his apartment for you to knock on his door. William Colton Hughes is living his fantasy: his victims are delivered to his apartment every few days. But when he's suddenly alone, no visitors, nobody to talk to but himself, he begins to lose what little of his mind he has left. Has his benefactor, his employer, been his prison warden all along? His apartment complex a hospital? Is he going to have to go back to heaving dark plastic bags into dumpsters when nobody's looking? Or will Dashboard Mary, a mysterious woman hell-bent on revenge, get to him first? This is William Colton Hughes. Come and knock on his door.

If you know LitReactor, you know Stephen Graham Jones.  Friends to the site, instructor, and author of over ten novels.

Discussion for The Least of My Scars will kick off on January 1st, but you should pick up the book and start reading ASAP!  (We've provided a handy link below). Once you're locked and loaded, you can announce your presence in the Book Club. (No invitation needed!)  That thread is where all discussion about the book will go down.

If you read our December Book Club selection, Doctor Sleep by Stephen King, make sure you check out that thread as discussion there has officially started.

Happy reading!
