Today, two reviews from Lexifabricographer, one new (DEAD HARVEST) and one that somehow escaped my prior notice (for 8 POUNDS.) Both, I'm delighted to say, are quite favorable! Here's a taste of the former:
"DEAD HARVEST is a solid hardboiled crime thriller buried neck-deep in the supernatural. That it walks a tightrope between the two genres without compromising on either is impressive – the central mystery is compelling, the narrator is heroic but horribly flawed and the stakes are both intimately personal and cosmic at the same time. This was such a satisfying read that I don’t really want to spoil anything. I highly recommend it."
And of the latter:
"'Seven Days of Rain' and 'The World Behind' are clearly descendants of Stephen King’s (non-supernatural) best... while a couple of the others would not be out of place in Roald Dahl’s body of work."
Many, many thanks to the titular Lexifabricographer for the kind words.
