Robert McCammon asks, “What happened to those children of the sixties who learned the language of hatred, who swore oaths upon their bloodstained manifestos and vowed to never surrender?” Most went on to other lifestyles. But Mary Terrell, a.k.a. “Mary Terror,” did not change. Her insanity deepened into schizophrenia, and in the late ‘80s she still calls herself “freedom fighter for those without rights in the Mindfuck State.” Hallucinating, heavily armed, and possessed by the delusion that an infant son will restore the good ol’ days with her ex-lover, Mary steals a baby. But the child’s mother is a strong, resourceful woman, and she recruits an ex-radical to help her. What ensues is a hair-raising chase across the American Midwest in wintertime, toward a final confrontation in which both “mothers” proclaim, “He’s mine.” Not only is Mine an intense horror novel (winner of a Bram Stoker Award), but refreshingly, all three main characters are women.
