Folio: The Seattle Athenaeum is thrilled to welcome back renowned novelist and memoirist author Felice Picano for a presentation and wine reception featuring his latest book Six Strange Stories and "H.P. Lovecraft and Time".

In After Sunset in the Second Drawing Room Garden a hip young couple buy the ideal Beverly Hills house perfect for their Television series lifestyle. Only to discover that one special area holds decades old inhabitants who still exert eerie control.

Two U.S. retirees rent a Regency mansion in the English countryside in The Tapping at Cranburg Grange. But what is that repetitive sound only one of them can hear -- a sound that once found out can never be forgotten?

A lighthearted bicycle tour by an uncle and nephew goes awry leading the elder to an eldritch church with a curious sight that once touched will forever change the very fabric of time in Strange on My Hands.

Also:  A dull bachelor party weekend in suburban Connecticut turns into a night of inexplicable terror. A corporate executive scorns any hint of the supernatural... until he becomes part of it.  A flawed mirror with unusual properties aids a middle-aged man protecting his meal-ticket marriage.

These stories and an essay on H.P. Lovecraft's most original work, with comments by the horror-meister's real life schoolmates, comprise a compelling volume by an author whose earlier work in the field has been called "genius."

Felice Picano is the author of twenty-five books of poetry, fiction, memoirs, and nonfiction. His work is translated into sixteen languages; several titles were national and international bestsellers, including The Lure, Like People in History and The Book of Lies. Four of Picano's plays have been produced. He's considered a founder of modern gay literature along with other members of the Violet Quill. He's won or been nominated for numerous awards including being a finalist for five Lammies and received the City of West Hollywood's Rainbow Key award in 2013. Picano's most recent work is the duology, Pursuit: A Victorian Entertainment and Pursued: Lillian's Story, and the newly complete City on a Star SF Trilogy, including the classic Dryland's End, The Betrothal at Usk, and A Bard on Hercular.
