Demon Night - Straczynski

Demon Night is a novel written by J. Michael Straczynski. It was first published in 1988.


A young man awakes from a recurring nightmare to find that, once again, his apartment has been destroyed: the TV is on fire, the mirrors shattered, the aquarium exploded with such force that shards of glass are embedded in the opposite wall; and once again a voice is saying, Come home... And so he does. Home is the small Maine town where his parents were both killed in a grotesque car wreck years before. The kind of town Stephen King has described as mostly indifference spiced with an occasional vapid evil or worse, a conscious one. A small town caught in a centuries-old war between supernatural forces. This is a genuinely frightening tale of death and demons, love and possession.
