William Peter Blatty's The Ninth Configuration Gets Re-Released
On April 29th, 2014, Tor Books is releasing a new paperback and eBook edition of The Ninth Configuration. Written by William Peter Blatty – author of The Exorcist – The Ninth Configuration was the basis of a 1980 film of the same name. Also known as Twinkle, Twinkle, "Killer" Kane, this will be the first time the novel has been available an eBook.
Hidden away in a brooding Gothic manor in the deep woods is Center Eighteen, a secret military “rest camp” housing twenty-seven inmates who have succumbed to a sudden outbreak of mental illness. The Pentagon has placed a brilliant Marine psychiatrist in charge of the base to find out if the men truly lost their minds or are only pretending to be insane to avoid combat – or if some more sinister conspiracy is at work. A man of deep faith and compassion, Colonel Kane hopes to uncover the root of the men’s bizarre obsessions. But as Center Eighteen descends into chaos, Kane finds the greatest challenge may be his own buried demons...
