Sneak Peek at the Cover of DJR’s Latest Novel

Oakfield, David J Rodger’s 9th novel, is due to be released early 2015; here’s the cover by Ben from London design duo The Sprezz

OAKFIELD is a chilling tale of alien horror in the remote coastal clifftop town of Temple Combe, in Cornwall. It has been much-anticipated by fans following the critical success of The Social Club and last year’s bestseller – EDGE – with a similar focus on a single physical setting creating an evolving sense of claustrophobia as the wonderfully written scenes unfold. Like many of Rodger’s earlier novels, Oakfield takes place in the near future and is not a part of the post-apocalyptic “Yellow Dawn” series.

“Annabella Spaulding has inherited an extraordinary property from her estranged grandfather.  A man she hasn’t seen since she was a child. Taking her husband and family there she seeks to heal the painful rifts between them.  When owners of a local mine show an unhealthy interest in the property, it becomes worryingly apparent her grandfather may not have died naturally.  There is a great secret bound within the house, and digging through the clues to discover the truth they risk tearing down the walls between our reality and a monstrous other…”

“Claustrophobic and sinister, this book strides relentlessly towards a shocking conclusion.”

The book actually took 25 years to write.  Started in 1989 and abandoned in order to work on his first published novel God Seed, Oakfield is in its own unique way a prequel to the main plot in God Seed.  Fans of H.P.Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos should find Oakfield is a delicious return to the classic themes introduced by one of America’s greatest writers of cosmic and psychological horror.
