My only problem with this book was that I didn't read it sooner. This is an original, refreshing, and creepy novel by one of horror's veterans. There is no question T. M. is a great writer, but beyond that - and more importantly - he's a great storyteller. I breathed a sigh of relief after reading this book because I felt lucky that I stumbled upon his work. Many good authors get swept under the radar for whatever reason... bad marketing by publishers, readers not willing to take a chance on a new author, bad cover art, etc. But the good news is that I've found him, and that's all that really matters. Thank you, Mr. Wright. You are truly inspiring.
