Harrison Squared
Author: Daryl Gregory
Genre: YA Fantasy/Horror
Release Date: March 24, 2015
Publisher: Tor Books


From award winning author Daryl Gregory comes a thrilling and colorful Lovecraftian adventure of a teenage boy searching for his mother, and the macabre creatures he encounters.

Harrison Harrison—H2 to his mom—is a lonely teenager who’s been terrified of the water ever since he was a toddler in California, when a huge sea creature capsized their boat, and his father vanished. One of the “sensitives” who are attuned to the supernatural world, Harrison and his mother have just moved to the worst possible place for a boy like him: Dunnsmouth, a Lovecraftian town perched on rocks above the Atlantic, where strange things go on by night, monsters lurk under the waves, and creepy teachers run the local high school.

On Harrison’s first day at school, his mother, a marine biologist, disappears at sea. Harrison must attempt to solve the mystery of her accident, which puts him in conflict with a strange church, a knife­wielding killer, and the Deep Ones, fish­-human hybrids that live in the bay. It will take all his resources—and an unusual host of allies—to defeat the danger and find his mother.

Praise For the works of Daryl Gregory:

"Harrison Squared takes old time boy's adventure fiction, throws in a soup├žon of the Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys mystery hour, and recklessly dumps it all into the briny, boiling cauldron of Lovecraftian horror. The result is nothing less than splendid."
Bill Willingham, author of Fables, on Harrison Squared

"A great giggling psychedelic trip down the big pharma rabbit hole to a place where designer drugs hack the human mind for its limitless potential, and madness, empathy, talking teddy bears and the face of God are all just a hit away."
Paolo Bacigalupi, author of The Windup Girl, on Afterparty 

"Smart, funny, fast, more than a little terrifying... Really an exhilarating read."
Kim Stanley Robinson, author of the Mars trilogy, on Afterparty 

"This taut, brisk, gripping narrative...oozes warmth and wit. A hugely entertaining, surprising, and perhaps prophetic package."
Kirkus Reviews, starred review, on Afterparty

"Daryl Gregory continues to be one of the top writers in the field" —Locus, on Afterparty
