Blurb: Benjamin lives a quiet life in a small Pennsylvania town, but he dreams of a larger world beyond the family homestead, of beautiful cities and sophisticated people. He longs to be in the Big Apple among its urbane residents. But the distant cities pictured in magazines seem an impossibility, so he fantasizes about the local legends instead. His favorite story is of The Goat Man and the gift he bestows upon the luckiest of believers.
But The Goat Man is no mere legend. He is very real, a lingering presence ever watchful from the darkness. The time comes when he answers the young man’s prayers and visits Benjamin in the depths of night.
With Benjamin’s magical gift comes dreadful consequences. Sacrifices must be made and unspoken promises kept. Shambling shapes in the shadows beckon Benjamin to a horrific, inescapable fate.
Review: There was actually a good strong storyline to this. The title to me suggested humor but when I was done with it, I found it to be exhilarating. The great ties to the satyr mythology and the ways of the past had me intrigued. The more I read, the more fascinated I became. So interested I wished there was more to it.
