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

Bordering on the Mundane

The Border - Robert R. McCammon

Average sci-fi entertainment that is marred by a particularly weak "it was all a dream" type ending. We don't even get to shed any tears, none, and all those shed along the way were wasted. I found the characters tepid by McCammon standards and the scenario and plot, while showing early signs of innovation, settled into a fairly conventional class in the end. Hardly an occasion for rejoicing about McCammon's return to 1980s form. A fat read strictly for McCammon aficionados.
