"I'm telling you, there's more history to the house than any other place on Indian Neck, and that's the truth," Ted Martin said, and took a long swallow of beer. (from the first line)
Annotation:
Sixteen-year-old Barney anticipates a long, hot, dull summer when his parents rent a beach house despite knowing that Barney can't enjoy the ocean because he gets terrible sunburns. However, Barney does find something interesting to occupy his mind--Joe, Manny, and Zena, the three exotic and glamorous strangers who have rented the small cottage next door. As Barney gets to know the unusual trio, he becomes intrigued by the fact that they obsessively play Interstellar Pig, a science fiction-inspired board game, the likes of which Barney has never before seen. Despite their strange behavior, Barney finds himself drawn to his neighbors, and before too long he's joined them in their fiercely competitive game. Now fully immersed in the world of Interstellar Pig, Barney begins to suspect that Joe, Manny, and Zena will stop at nothing to win, and he sets out to discover why winning at Interstellar Pig is so very important--and what happens to those unfortunate enough to lose.
Author Bio
William Sleator
William Sleator graduated from Harvard with a degree in English, although his original major was music. Sleator's first book, THE ANGRY MOON(1970), is a retelling of a Tlingit legend. He is perhaps best known for his 1974 science fiction work, HOUSE OF STAIRS, and 1984's INTERSTELLAR PIG. Before turning to writing full-time, Sleator spent nine years as a rehearsal pianist for the Boston Ballet.
