This is what I think is happening. -Something is coming to take away everything I have. -I don't have any idea what it will look like. -It may already be here. Invasions on Hickory Road is a mystical yet insightfully comic story of dark intrusions that come to a sunny suburban neighborhood. When the families on Hickory Road learn about a home invasion in the next town, their first frightened impulse is to arm themselves against outside attackers. What they don't realize is that invasions can come from inside their neighborhood as well as from outside, and that they are already endangered by the unknown secrets of Hickory Road itself. Most dangerous of all: in the basement of the empty house at number 16 a trapdoor opens down into a labyrinthine series of tunnels that lead to - nobody knows where or what. Written by award winning humorist Jim Delay, Invasions on Hickory Road merges approaching menace with the hilarious imperfections of unpredictable characters.
