Writer Dan Simmons also taps the history of a literary master for his latest, “Drood.”
Simmons, author of “The Terror,” bases this thriller in the historical details of Charles Dickens’ life and is narrated by Dickens’ friend, writer Wilkie Collins. An 1865 train wreck changes Dickens’ life forever after he comes in contact with the mysterious Drood. Dickens and Collins search for Drood, making nightly excursions into the worst parts of London. Collins, who doubts the existence of Drood, begins to question the motives of his friend, who has developed a strange obsession with the macabre.
