Speculative fiction is a broad umbrella category of narrative fiction referring to any fiction story that includes elements, settings and characters whose features are created out of imagination and speculation rather than based on attested reality and everyday life. That encompasses the genres of science fiction, fantasy, science fantasy, horror, alternative history, and magic realism.
Strange things are happening in Skeleton Creek...
and Ryan and Sarah are trying to get to the heart of it. But after an
eerie accident leaves Ryan housebound and forbidden to see Sarah, their
investigation takes two tracks: Ryan records everything in his journal,
while Sarah uses her videocam to search things out... and then email
the clips for Ryan to see.
In a new, groundbreaking format,
the story is broken into two parts – Ryan's text in the book, and
Sarah's videos on a special website, with links and passwords given
throughout the book.
