Oh I liked this one! I have read most of laymons books and this one was really good with lots of weird twists.. he really can surprise you! if you like laymons books get this one! I really liked the woman in this story... it started off with alot different feel than some of his... and really took off! never boring at all! I read this one late into the night. I dont want to ruin nay of the book for anyone so I will just say..worth the read.. if you get jumpy at night and scared easy.. read this during the day!

The supermarket shouldn't have been shut - it wasn't normal for Elsie to quit early. But then it wasn't normal for a meat cleaver to fly through the air by itself. Or for a guard dog locked in overnight to end up like hamburger meat. Or for Elsie herself to feature on the butcher's slab, neatly wrapped and jointed...
There's weird things happening in the town of Oasis and certain folks - like hotshot local reporter Lacey Allen - had better...BEWARE!

The supermarket shouldn't have been closed, it wasn't normal for Elsie to quit early. But then it wasn't normal for a meat clever to fly throght the air by itself, or for a guard dog locked in overnight to end up like hamburger meat. Or for Elsie herself to feature on the butcher's slab, neatly jointed and wrapped.
Another great tale by richard Laymon.

a short quick read, very entertaining, not so much 'horror' and it takes a while to finally realize what is going on but it will hold your interest all the way

I liked this quick, easy read by Laymon. I found the sex in this one to be more in tune with the story instead of just happening for no reason. Good characters and a lot of fun and excitement.

Another layman. This is one of his earlier works published in the UK. This is a UK edition. Filled with all the good elements of a horror novel. Lots of blood, sex. This one is about an invisible killer.

This was a shorter, more graphic novel than some of his others. Comprised of nonstop action, but tempered with less characterization than most of Laymon's books that I have read. It wasn't one of my favorites, but it was certainly entertaining. Overall, it seemed like a less mature novel - mostly due to the characters and the rape scenes clearly influenced by _The Entity_. Still, it was a fun book in its own way.

Another good tale by Richard Laymon, the usual blood gore and sex.

As a life long fan of the horror genre, Richard Laymon understands what it takes to get under your skin (and in most cases, in his books, that would be literal).

Beware is one of those books that is relentless from the beginning. His ending is not as good as some of his others (The Island had me saying "No Way!" for weeks), but it is still great.
