About the Author

Richard Cox is the alleged author of three previous novels: Thomas World, The God Particle, and Rift. He claims to lives in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Then again, you shouldn't believe everything you read.


"This beautifully written supernatural thriller will no doubt remind some readers of Stephen King's It, and perhaps also of Dennis Lehane's Mystic River, but make no mistake: this is no knockoff. Cox's story is vibrantly original and his characters are intricately detailed."

"Mind-blowing . . . Captures the same spirit of dreadful nostalgia that made Stranger Things a recent smash hit for Netflix . . . Think of [The Boys of Summer] as the best Stephen King novel not by Stephen King (a true compliment)."
--Barnes & Noble Sci-Fi Blog

"I really enjoyed The Boys of Summer . . . If you liked Stranger Things you'll probably like this too."

"Make no mistake, Cox has spun a hell of a yarn. Rich and complex characters, razor-blade prose, and a must-be-read-to-be-believed premise. Not since Stephen King's It has there been such a poignant and exhilarating parable about family, friendship and the demons that hitch a ride as we hit each our own lonesome road from childhood to adulthood."
--Fred Strydom, author of The Raft

"The Boys of Summer is a thrilling ride, as twisty and unpredictable as a tornado. Cox will keep you turning pages deep into the night."
--New York Times bestselling author Jonathan Evison

"Richard Cox charges into urban fantasy with the hallucinatory, devastating The Boys of Summer. The book Stephen King would have written if he'd been born on the wind-ravaged plains of North Texas."
--Sean Beaudoin, author of Welcome Thieves and The Infects

"The Boys of Summer is a tense, intriguing, and beautifully observed puzzle of a book, so craftily plotted that it kept me guessing right to the end."
--Tom Toner, author of The Promise of the Child

"A dark, clever, supernatural thriller"--Dallas News
