|Tamper is a novel about a boy named Whit who
grows up in the 1960s obsessed with paranormal
research, B-movies, and strange noises drifting up
from the basement of his parents' house. Things
take a dark turn in the 1970s due to drug-induced
psychosis. Tamper takes its name from 1940s pulp
science fiction writer Richard Shaver, who claimed
that underground fiends were using invisible rays to
