Jack Ketchum has long made a name for himself by delving into the darkest regions of human sexuality. His first novel, 1980’s Off Season, was so horrifically visceral that its publisher, Ballantine, opted against a second printing.
I'm Not Sam
As often happens with art, the novella I’m Not Sam began life as something else. As Jack Ketchum tells it in his introduction to the book (currently scheduled for a Winter 2012 release from Cemetery Dance), it was originally conceived as a short story that he and his co-writer, Lucky McKee, would then adapt into a short film.
