Coming Fall of 2018
by Marshall Thornton
"Never Rest injects new life into the gay Bildungsroman with his dark yet wry tale; dying boy meets dying boy has never been rendered so well." - Steve Berman, author of Vintage: A Ghost Story,
Nineteen-year-old Jake Margate has had terminal leukemia for five years and is ready to let go but his mother has other ideas. She’s found a rogue doctor pursuing radical treatments and takes her son to a remote institute where he does seem to get better…at first. But then the treatment begins to fail in strange ways just as Jake begins to fall for another of the test subjects. Slowly, he realizes he’s been turned into something truly horrible. Two-timeLambda Literary Award-winning author Thornton has written a contemporary queer twist on the Frankenstein monster story.
