Dean Koontz has become a fairly regular guest on Midwest Opinions, and one of Josh's favorite people to interview. You never what you're going to get when Josh and Dean get together.
Today, Dean Koontz talks about his latest addition to the Odd Thomas series - Odd Apocalypse. Here's some information from the press release:
"Dean Koontz is back with his “most likable creation,” per The New York Times. The long-awaited new novel in the Odd Thomas saga, ODD APOCALYPSE (Bantam; July 31), is a major kick-off to an exciting year for Koontz. The feature film adaptation of the original Odd novel, Odd Thomas, directed by Stephen Sommers (“The Mummy”) and starring Anton Yelchin as Odd, Willem Dafoe and Patton Oswalt will soon be scheduled for release.
ODD APOCALYPSE offers an invitation to the legendary, luxurious Roseland estate, where Odd and his enigmatic travel companion, Annamaria, are led into a twisted labyrinth of danger. Thought-provoking, wide-ranging in its themes, and compellingly readable, Koontz’s latest Odd Thomas novel marks the darkest passage yet in his hero’s mysterious journey and delivers the adventure, psychological suspense, and Odd uplift fans have been eagerly awaiting."
