This book is kicking my ass. You know how some books in your life test your will to the point that at every turn, you want to quit, but you can’t quit because you’re just in too deep? Things are tough and bloody and dark and you’re wounded, maybe, almost dead, probably, and you’re watching people descend into madness or worse, an inhuman insidiousness that you meet with wide-eyed terror.
Yeah, it’s like that. Pheww.
The man’s a genius, no doubt, but it’s heavy.
If you’ve never read H.P. Lovecraft and you’re a fan of genre fiction, you should definitely give it a try. Lovecraft is the founding father of modern horror like Stephen King and Dean Koontz and is a master at turning otherworldy specters and nightmares into reality. The complete works include supernatural horror, mystery, and suspense making it a nice addition to your hoard. In my opinion, the man was much more important than he is sometimes give credit for.
Rural Gothic Fiction at its finest, Haldan Black conjures up images of the south at its most frightening. This disturbing psychological tale raises some thought provoking questions about our society’s treatment of the impoverished and the unstable.
