Halloweenland

Halloweenland - Al Sarrantonio Probably the best of the Orangefield novels. Hardboiled detective Bill Grant is Sarrantonio's best realized character and he stays for then entire novel here. Sarrantonio is trying to capture some of the feel of Charles L. Grant's Oxrun Station novels and stories but he just isn't the writer Grant is. Tying himself to the Halloween holiday especially makes it hard to provide sufficient variety to the plots. Unlike Oxrun Station, these novels should be read in the proper chronology (NOT the order they were written).
