The greats of fiction Stephen King and George R. R. Martin lead the fanfare for HEX, so be assured that Thomas Olde Heuvelt's debut English novel is both terrifying and unputdownable in equal measure. Whoever is born here, is doomed to stay until death. Whoever comes to stay, never leaves. Welcome to Black Spring, the seemingly picturesque Hudson Valley town haunted by the Black Rock Witch, a seventeenth-century woman whose eyes and mouth are sewn shut. Blind and silenced, she walks the streets and enters homes at will. She stands next to children's beds for nights on end. So accustomed to her have the townsfolk become that they often forget she's there. Or what a threat she poses. Because if the stitches are ever cut open, the story goes, the whole town will die. The curse must not be allowed to spread. The elders of Black Spring have used high-tech surveillance to quarantine the town. Frustrated with being kept in lockdown, the town's teenagers decide to break the strict regulations and go viral with the haunting. But, in so doing, they send the town spiraling into a dark nightmare.

Hex is the subject of books by Martin Gardner and Cameron Browne. Hex theory touches on graph theory, game theory and combinatorial game theory, with elegant proofs that the game has no draws and that the first player can win. From machines built by Claude Shannon to agents using Monte Carlo Tree Search, Hex is often used in the study of artificial intelligence. Written for a wide audience, this is the full story of Hex, inside and out, with all its twists and turns: Hein’s creation, Lindhard’s puzzles, Nash’s proofs, Gale’s Bridg-it, the game of Rex, Shannon’s machines, Bridg-it’s fall, Hex’s resilience, Hex theory, the hunt for winning strategies, and the rise of Hexbots.

Every town has an attraction-a reason to visit and not just drive on through. For Barrington County, the June 1595 hunt and subsequent burning of the murderous witch, Willow Kellar, is what has provided the quaint little town centuries of notoriety, especially since Willow hexed the town just as she died, and promised that the families responsible would all die bloody, horrible deaths, eventually. The continually looming hex, now a famous legend, is strategically used to attract tourists to Barrington County's annual Harvest Festival. People from all over are drawn to visit the historic site of the Kellar burning. For Nathalie, Dean, Luke, and Sadie, four Barrington teenagers, this is nothing new. They anticipate a normal and wonderful summer with the upcoming festival, especially since love is in the air. Then strange things start to happen. It turns out the summer won't be normal after all, because sometimes, legends come true.
