Suicide Woods by Benjamin Percy, with Peter Geye



A potent brew of horror, crime, and weird happenings, Suicide Woods is Benjamin Percy’s first story collection since his acclaimed Refresh, Refresh. A boy falls through lake-ice and emerges in a frozen, uncanny state. A therapy group undergoes a drastic session in the woods with fatal consequences. And in a pulse-quickening novella, thrill seekers on an expedition into the “Bermuda Triangle” of Alaska are stranded on a sinister island. A masterclass in suspense and horror, SUICIDE WOODS is a dark, inventive collection.



Benjamin Percy is the author of four novels, two books of short stories, and the essay collection THRILL ME. His honors include a fellowship from the NEA, the Whiting Writers’ Award, two Pushcart Prizes, and the Plimpton Prize. He lives in Minnesota.
