PEACHTREE CITY, Ga. -- Local author, playwright and Clayton State University professor Phillip DePoy will make an appearance in Peachtree City this weekend to celebrate the release of his new book.

The novel, A Corpse's Nightmare, is the sixth installment of DePoy's Fever Devilin series. It opens with a bombshell -- Devilin, the narrator, is killed on the very first page. He is eventually brought back to life, of course, but what happens while he's "dead" will keep readers on the edge of their seats.
