SPOTLIGHT ON A LOCAL AUTHOR - H.C. Beckerr




HEART OF DARKNESS
     Here at the Collinsville Library Memorial Center we have a long history of proudly supporting local authors. Our shelves contain numerous works lovingly crafted right in the shadow of the Catsup Bottle.  The latest being “Hill of Great Darkness” by H.C. Beckerr.  Although the epic SCI-FI spirituality of Beckerr’s debut novel shows little concern for the pettiness of time and space, there is no denying this book's horseradish roots.  After all, that "hill" in the title is actually Cahokia Mounds. "Here I come, Collinsville. Let's find your dark little secret" declares the character Jessica Vandale.  Check out this book, and you too can find that secret.
