Hello. I’m Alan Tyson, and you’re reading The Last Suburb.
The Last Suburb is a small-town horror story, a suburban fantasy, if you like that. If you think of the old B movies that ran from the 1950s to the 1970s, about gangs of teenage criminals on the prowl, about monsters that lived among and preyed upon the local townsfolk, about fast cars and their reckless drivers, about young love and the perils that go with it, then you’re in a pretty good headspace to enjoy The Last Suburb. This is a book that is musically fueled by psychobilly, surf rock, grunge, and good old ‘50’s classics. It’s also about growing up in a small town, and about being a grownup in a small town. It’s very much a story about how memory cannot be trusted, and about how sometimes memories are all we have to hold on to.
This is a serialized novel, to be uploaded a bit at a time, once per day. Much of the novel, (over 500 pages at this timestamp) is already written, and will continue to be written as more and more of the story unfolds online. Though novels and other stories have been serialized for centuries, I like to think of The Last Suburb being more like a TV series or a narrative webcomic, a story that you take in small parts, which fit together to make a far greater whole.
I hope you will enjoy reading.
