While GRAY LAKE: A NOVEL OF CRIME AND SUPERNATURAL HORROR (ebook, print & audio) ostensibly takes place in modern-day Green River, Michigan, the director's cut that plays in the cinema of my secret heart takes place in the '80s. That's when I, like some of the book's protagonists, was a teenager, and that's when I conceived of - and lived - a good portion of the novel. And that's why you see a lot of '80s music on the Spotify playlist.. If you'd like specific explanations of why each song is on this soundtrack, I wrote an essay on it in THE ROAD TO GRAY LAKE, a little companion book with essays about the novel, excerpted scenes, etc. Consider the novel the movie and the companion book the bonus DVD!
