Part-time artist, full-time smartass and gleeful drunk Billy thought his childhood memories of the skeletal entity called the Wigwam were just his imagination. But when Billy returns to Indian Hills, he discovers the Wigwam is real–and he remembers Billy very well.

What was supposed to be just a weekend with his girlfriend turns into a nightmare for Billy as repressed memories of his youth come storming back. Soon Billy is isolated on the haunted mountainside that the Wigwam calls his home. Mutilated figures appear in a sudden fog engulfing the mountain. A pair of missing twin boys, presumed dead, appear.

Armed only with sarcasm, a pack of smokes and all the beers he can find, Billy needs to remember how he defeated the Wigwam as a boy if he wants to survive the next round.

About the author

Mack Moyer is an infrequently sober writer from Philadelphia. Sketches of the Wigwam was inspired by his hapless travels in the coal country regions of Northeastern Pennsylvania while working as an emergency medical technician.

Mack grew up with a variety of couch surfers, drunks, slackers and petty criminals. Thus, he writes about them extensively.

He's an avid reviewer of horror novels. Along with his reviews and short stories, catch his rants and bouts of impotent rage on MackMoyer.com and his Facebook page.

If you don’t have internet access, you can find him standing out front of any number of Philly dive bars offering to write for beer money.

A NEW YORK TIMES 100 NOTABLE BOOKS OF 2019 SELECTION

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Stephen King, the most riveting and unforgettable story of kids confronting evil since It.

In the middle of the night, in a house on a quiet street in suburban Minneapolis, intruders silently murder Luke Ellis’s parents and load him into a black SUV. The operation takes less than two minutes. Luke will wake up at The Institute, in a room that looks just like his own, except there’s no window. And outside his door are other doors, behind which are other kids with special talents—telekinesis and telepathy—who got to this place the same way Luke did: Kalisha, Nick, George, Iris, and ten-year-old Avery Dixon. They are all in Front Half. Others, Luke learns, graduated to Back Half, “like the roach motel,” Kalisha says. “You check in, but you don’t check out.”

In this most sinister of institutions, the director, Mrs. Sigsby, and her staff are ruthlessly dedicated to extracting from these children the force of their extranormal gifts. There are no scruples here. If you go along, you get tokens for the vending machines. If you don’t, punishment is brutal. As each new victim disappears to Back Half, Luke becomes more and more desperate to get out and get help. But no one has ever escaped from the Institute.

As psychically terrifying as Firestarter, and with the spectacular kid power of It, The Institute is Stephen King’s gut-wrenchingly dramatic story of good vs. evil in a world where the good guys don’t always win.
