April 2012 Book of the Month.

This is a blood-pumping, white-knuckle sci-fi futuristic thriller of epic proportions and the fifth of the six planned titles in the GONE series. Night is falling in the FAYZ. Even though it's been nearly a year since everyone over the age of fifteen disappeared, the sun has continued to shine on the kids of Perdido Beach. Now, though, the gaiaphage has blotted out the sun and plunged the FAYZ into perpetual gloom. Divided and dispirited, the survivors face their greatest enemy yet - the darkness of their own minds...

Synopsis

Fear by Michael Grant

Reviews

'... exciting, high-tension story told in a driving, torrential narrative that never lets up. This is great fiction. I love this book.' - Stephen King

'If Stephen King had written Lord of the Flies, it might have been a little like this'
- Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA) (Starred Review)

Q&A with Michael..

Where and when were you born?

Los Angeles California. There was a manger involved.

Where do you live and who with?

I live in Irvine, California, which is in “The OC” as we would say. I live with my wife, K.A. Applegate, and our two kids Jake, 11 (feet tall) and Julia, 9 (inches tall.) We have three pets: Goofy, a very large, very stupid, very sweet, poop-eating yellow Labrador; Pugs a nasty, hostile, ugly, yapping pug who I have not yet managed to kill; and Lightning, my daughter’s cat.

How did you first start writing?

My wife and I started writing together in 1989. At the time we were cleaning homes and offices for a living. Since then we’ve written over 150 books, sometimes together, sometimes separately, often under pseudonyms.

What inspires you?

Fear of having to get a real job. Oh, you mean artistically? I don’t know. I seem to be a compulsive writer. I like the rush of taking on something difficult, having no clear idea what I’m doing, and somehow pulling it off.

Have you won any awards for your work?

Fine, rub my nose in that. Great. Actually, the only award I have is a Pollie Award for political ads I produced for the Democrats a few years back.

How would you describe yourself in three words?

Amused. Impatient. Political.

What do you do to relax?

Watch TV. Go to restaurants. I don’t find reading fiction relaxing, exactly, it’s too much like work. I tend to read history for relaxation.
