This week's teaser is from a YA Hamlet retelling – Simon by Michael Mullin:
His father is dead. His mother has remarried. His uncle is . . . his new stepfather? When the ghost of Simon Elsinore's father returns and claims he was murdered by his own brother, the nineteen-year-old film student must determine what is true and exact the revenge his father demands.
'He [Simon] is compelled, not by others, but by some force within, to sit in the front and watch the two ceremonies – funeral and wedding – occur simultaneously. Not intertwined, but one atop the other, grotesquely and unnaturally occupying the same space, connected in sight alone, like a rapist and his victim.'
