Here's a hefty, immersive, multifaceted novel--one that will remind you of that time you flew through one of Stephen King's epics. Bennett's skill and ease with his story and its cross-genre subject matter make for addictive reading. Meet Mona, and the mysterious town, Wink, that is more than it appears... Excellent!— From Vlad
"American Elsewhere conjures up echoes of the best works of Ray Bradbury and Stephen King. ... American Elsewhere manages to surprise, terrify and move the reader."
-Los Angeles Times
"This wonderful offering is perfect for fans of Stephen King and Neil Gaiman."
"Bennett's novel may remind readers of the early works of Stephen King, presenting a small town where nothing is what it seems.... Bennett's work also evokes a mood similar to that of Mark Z. Danielewski's House of Leaves, where every darkness may swallow a person only to spit them out into a place akin to Wonderland."
-RT Book Reviews
"Bennett gives the idealized image of the American dream a pan-dimensional twist with this alien invasion tale, part Bradbury and part L'Engle with a dash of Edward Scissorhands... Readers will be captivated from start to finish."
-Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) on American Elsewhere
"The novel starts out curious and odd but quickly becomes terrifying and haunting, as the author reveals more about the people of Wink, who just may be the most curious and intimidating collection of folks you're likely to meet outside the pages of Stephen King.... A beautifully written, claustrophobic, and deeply memorable horror novel."
"Mad and humorous, gory and poignant, American Elsewhere is a sort of mid-20th-century retelling of the embodiment of Lovecraftian Elder Gods by way of Alamogordo's legendary atomic tests. It's not to be missed.
"So American Elsewhere is basically so good that I want to camp outside @robertjbennett's house until he tells me his secret."
