This is a pretty good book. It's very supernatural and is kinda creepy. I had saved this to read at halloween. Great decision. It's a spooktacular book.
Pretty good but the weakest of the Orangefield series in my opinion. That doesn't mean it's not worth reading. It's a great supernatural horror story and very creepy.
Interesting and macabre stand alone story- many references to earlier books and the book would certainly be richer, I think, if I'd read them first but (unlike so many) it isn't necessary to have read them first in order to follow and enjoy this one. This particular edition also includes both versions of 'The Baby'- the short story that was previously released is the basis for the first part of the book and can be found at the end.
Similar to Quins S's review on this book I too did not read any of the previous tie in books by this author. That said I don't feel it was really necessary as the story itself was a enjoyable Halloween tale. The author threw in an additional short story ("The Baby") following "Halloween Land" Which was more or less an alternate ending. ( The Baby actually was written first, so I guess you might look at it the other way around, making "Halloween Land" the alternate ending....I thought it was a nice change and would actually like to see more writers take that leap and do it more often. Given endings are said to be one of the most difficult phases of a well told tale to write, I doubt this will trend.
