At first glance, Phil Pendleton and his son Adam are just an ordinary father and son, no different from any other. They take walks in the park together, visit county fairs, museums, and zoos, and eat overlooking the lake. Some might say the father is a little too accommodating given the lack of discipline when the child loses his temper in public. Some might say he spoils his son by allowing him to set his own bedtimes and eat candy whenever he wants. Some might say that such leniency is starting to take its toll on the father, given how his health has declined.What no one knows is that Phil is a prisoner, and that up until a few weeks ago and a chance encounter at a grocery store, he had never seen the child before in his life.A new novella from the Bram Stoker Award-winning author of THE TURTLE BOY and KIN.… (més)

This was a quick and creepy read that will make you think twice about that quick trip to the WAL-MART or those shrieking kids in the aisles. Phil Pendelton was having a pretty good day up until he went to the store. He was planning nothing more than a day off spent with his girlfriend and couldn't wait to get back to her. That all changed in the candy aisle. All poor Phil wanted was to indulge his girlfriend's need for chocolate but that is not at all what he came home with. I personally wouldn't take candy from strangers but after reading this I may run away screaming if anyone offers me sour candy. However this is one delicious story.

I thought I was certain that it was going in a certain direction and had it all figured out from the start, but then it flipped and went off in an unexpected direction. It gave me hope and a fleeting feeling of "oh, I'm familiar with this and everything is going to be OK" and then it did it again...pulled the rug out from under me. What a wonderfully disturbing read this was. It was insidious and mind-bending. with a strength that was just plain horrifying. If you are fan of the horror genre you will want to give this one a try. ( )

Kealan Patrick Burke takes a situation that we all have encountered. We have been at a store or restaurant and seen a parent struggle with a seemingly demon possessed child. Hopefully we have felt compassion. Maybe we were that parent. At one time or another I think all of us have been on one side or the other of that situation.

Burke takes this stressful real life event and plays it out on another stage. A Twilight Zone-like alternate reality where the demons are real and nothing is as it seems. Where your life is suddenly not as you remember it and no one you know is the same.

Where doors open to places that only the insane see in their dreams.

A great novella by an author that never takes the safe and familiar route to his destinations. Every time you read something by Burke you know that you will travel unfamiliar territory.

Unsettling, chilling, and very original.

That was awesome. Old-fashioned cosmic horror with a really hard twist. ( )
