The Wildman by Rick Hautala Illustrated by Alan M. Clark Trade Edition Jeff Cameron is going back to Camp Tapiola on Lake Onwego to meet several old friends and share fond memories of their childhood camp experiences. But all childhood memories of camp are not so fond....like when their friend Jimmy Foster was fished out of the camp's lake. The authorities say it was an accidental drowning, but Jeff knows better. Now, Jeff must try to figure out why one of his friends seems to have a hidden agenda and what this reunion is really all about. Was Jimmy Foster's death a murder or accident? The mystery has haunted Jeff for thirty five years. And another question remains... who is "The Wildman"?

Review:

Reviewed by David Niall Wilson This is a story of friendships gone bad, of memories that leak into the present and stain reality in strange and unfamiliar colors. It s a story of revenge, and hatred, death, and redemption. There are hints of the supernatural, but the tale is rooted in gritty reality. There are intrigues within intrigues, and at the end - you may believe you have it all figured out, but if you think about it again...run it through your mind...maybe you got lost in the woods. This is a good, solid novel by a talented author, beautifully illustrated by artist Alan Clark. It is also the premiere original novel from new specialty publisher FULL MOON PRESS . This is a signed, limited edition book at an affordable price with lavish illustrations and the promise of wonderful production values. --Macbre Ink --Macbre Ink

THE WILDMAN by Rick Hautala Review by Norm Rubenstein Horror World Reviews Author Hautala expertly sets his stage and gives the reader both a number of interesting and compelling characters as well as a great storyline. Hautala s writing is intelligent and economical and, after the initial setup, keeps the story moving at breakneck speed throughout the majority of the novel, with ever-escalating tension, some clever red-herrings thrown in, and truly inspired and brilliant plot twists. The Wildman is a vastly entertaining novel, one that is very easy for the reader to quickly and totally immerse him or herself in, and to happily lose all track of time while reading. The Wildman is a wonderful and inspired selection for Full Moon Press to be utilizing to introduce itself to the Horror and Suspense Genre readership. It is a most auspicious beginning for Full Moon Press, and if their future titles are anywhere near as exciting, enjoyable, and well written, they should have no problem in rapidly establishing an excellent reputation and record, and in selling out their entire planned limited edition publications. As it stands, The Wildman receives my highest recommendation, without reservation, and readers would do well to make certain to obtain a copy of this book while such copies remain available. This is definitely one of Rick Hautala s best novels, and is likely to receive serious consideration when awards time next comes around. It should prove to be an admired and proud addition to anyone s library and/or collection. --Horror World --Horror World
