THE CARETAKER OF LORNE FIELD

I am away and with a lousy laptop, but had to stop in my tracks to say that the book mentioned above by Dave Zeltserman, THE CARETAKER OF LORNE FIELD is one of the most original and compelling books have read it sometime. It's a horror story, yes. But it is also the stuff of fairy tales, legends, myths. I could not have loved it more. For a better review than this old thing allows me, see THE DROWING MACHINE or other reviews in print. Like Naomi I found no humor in this--just agony. WOW!
