Mary Vigliante Szydlowskiabout this book: I got the idea for this book while driving the little traveled Big Moose Rd. in the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York. The road goes through a vast and desolate logging area and in places runs along the shore of the immense Stillwater Reservoir. The forest was so dark and foreboding that it made me think of the horrible things, the mayhem and murder, that could happen there, under the thick canopy of trees, away from prying eyes. The road was some 20 miles long and very spooky. Even though it was a sunny day, the trees were so tall and thick, that barely any light reached the forest floor below. All you could see were dark, menacing shadows amid the trees. The kind of shadows that raise the hackles on the back of your neck and make your heart beat faster. The driving was slow going because the road was badly rutted and because we had to maneuver around the broken branches that littered the road. By the time we finally reached the town of Number Four and had returned to civilization, with the occasional house and passing car, I had pretty much come up with the whole plot of WORSHIP THE NIGHT. It's the story of a sexually repressed librarian named Lea. She is raised by her strict, religious fanatic mother who sees sin everywhere, in everyone and everything. Her mother's death frees Lea from a lifetime of sexual repression. When the will is read, Lea discovers she's inherited a cabin off an old logging road in a remote area of the Adirondack Mts. near, you guessed it, the Stillwater Reservoir. On the verge of a nervous breakdown, she's told she needs to rest and get away for a while. Her aunt convinces her to go visit the cabin. Once there, Lea succumbs to erotic fantasies and becomes the helpless prey of a phantom lover, a demon from the depths of Hell that comes to her in the night. To transform the incubus into the flesh-and-blood lover she craves, Lea must offer sacrifice, give him blood. To do that, she must commit murder! She offers the blood of her victims on his altar, but only the ultimate sacrifice will satisfy his needs.
The original novel was published and reprinted twice. This edition has been rewritten and updated.
