Avery would cut through the bottom left corner of the park, to get to a Q-train at 57th Street and eventually home to Brooklyn.

Each passing lamp post kept him from being swallowed by the black that such a moonless night provided.

Yeah, I wanted to go to the Tribute to Guillermo del Toro on Friday, too.  Too bad it’s already sold out.  You can console yourself by renting his lesser-known horror masterpiece The Orphanage and watching it with that special someone and/or special bag of Ultimate Butter popcorn.  Alternately, here are a few more ideas for the weekend.

Written in the form of a diary, The Red Tree is set in Rhode Island, where the author Sarah Crowe has rented out a house, both to escape a recent tragedy—the suicide of her lover in Atlanta—and to work on a long overdue manuscript. The brunette nubile nymphet on the cover of the book bears little resemblance to the actual character Crowe in the book. Sarah Crowe is a chain-smoking, 44 year old bitter woman. In fact, she is downright unlikable at times, as she is full of negativity and armed with a variety of prickly self-defense mechanisms. Upon moving into the small house at the height of summer, she finds an old typewriter in the basement, and upon further exploration, a sub-basement that has an uncompleted manuscript by the former tenant of the house, Dr. Charles L. Harvey. Crowe begins using the typewriter, in spite of having a laptop, and Harvey’s reams of unused onionskin paper. She avoids working by writing a journal and reading Harvey’s manuscript. The manuscript concerns Harvey’s research on the legends surrounding the huge red oak that grows on the property.
