Tom Deady Synopsis: In the 174-page novella Backwater by Tom Deady, Tim Douglas returns to his hometown of Edgewater to bury his mother wanting nothing more than to get back to his retirement in Arizona. A strange sequence of events compels him to attend his 40th high school reunion where the past encroaches on the present, and Tim realizes that the ghosts of his youth must also be put to rest. There’s nothing like exploring an abandoned building to bring history back to life. So when Stan Powalski and his urban explorer friends learn that Edgewater’s Grand Hotel is set to be demolished, they can’t wait to get inside. None more than Stan, who has been raised on his grandmother’s stories of the historic building – the site of his parents’ wedding. What Stan doesn’t know is the Grand holds its own memories, and history has a long reach. Welcome to Edgewater, Massachusetts. You’ve driven through towns like it; quiet tree-lined streets, a gazebo on the town common where band concerts are held in the summer, maybe an ice-cream truck surrounded by children. But haven’t you wondered what secrets lie hidden behind the elegant brickwork or buried in the postcard-pretty hills and forests? In Edgewater, nothing is how it appears.
