A rant about books, horror, and the weird.  I sometimes take on my love/hate relationship with goodreads and Amazon.

Something Stirs

Something Stirs - Charles L. Grant

Decent mainstream creeper that rises above the pack because of Grant's evocative style. The same story told by a different writer would be pretty weak but Grant keeps our interest with his trademark "quiet horror" pacing and metaphor. I thought it was going to be an It clone but Grant turns the same basic premise in a different direction.

 

Only a three point five but I like Grant's writing.
