An eager film journalist writing an article for the anniversary of a beloved horror film, The Flicker Man, visits the home of the reclusive lead actress. An actress who, following the success of the movie, refused to work again and locked herself up in her Hollywood mansion without apparent reason. Stories of unusual and gruesome deaths that plagued the film’s production have been rife for decades, but what if the horror never stopped? What if the ritual to summon the abominable Flicker Man actually worked?

TREVOR HENDERSON is a writer and illustrator who specializes in horror. His love of monsters, ghosts and other horrible entities is enduring and vast. He's currently working on a middle-grade horror book for Scholastic, and when he is not drawing or writing horrible things, he is thinking about the unknowable and hostile forces working against all of humanity, and playing with his cat Boo. He lives in Toronto with his partner Jenn.

With Flicker, Jed Shepherd again expertly demonstrates that our most frightening nightmares aren't satisfied with hiding in the shadows.
