|Plot Summary of Evilution|
Invisible College Press, 2003, 14.95, 292 pp.
Out of work with no prospects and a lack of cash to tide her over, twenty-five years old Chase Block feels already depressed when her boyfriend Mat vanishes from her life. Despondent, she receives a letter from Storm Enterprises signed by a Nigel Moon informing her that she has won High Top Cottage in Paradise, Staffordshire. As she informs her gay amazon Jane, a disbelieving Chase does not remember entering in any contest nor can she find any information on the town.
Still when Storm Enterprises' Drake arrives to “collect” Chase, she and Jane go to the village to see her new home. However, seeing is a bit difficult as a thick fog engulfs the town as it has for a couple of years. As Chase finds a book warning of killings, Jane vanishes. Now Chase wonders if she should flee, if she can escape the fog, but also worries about her friend and two teens who have wandered inside the hazy belt.
