Featured Book Review: Night Sea Journey 0000
A Tale of the Supernatural Night Sea Journey is a great read, and it’s a book that I might read again one day. It was definitely a page turner where I did not want to put the book down because I can relate to this book in some aspects. Paula…
Death Mask - Graham Masterton Horror Book Review
Horror books Review
I have found it harder and harder to get hard back copies of Masterton’s material. Most of the horror genre I enjoy in Masterton’s work is always the supernatural material, where he can really go to town and show his fangs in the Uber Sex and violence whilst doing what only he can do in a supernatural work.
This novel takes longer than usual to get to the supernatural side of the main plot, and it appears that the styles in Bonnie Winter( I have both Hardback and Paperback of this story), and Chaos Thoery where I kept on waiting for the supernatural line to drop in, but… well just suffice to say its worth a read even if it is not a supernatural horror.
So much of the last 20 years of horror, and dare I say it even 30 years has been nothing compared to Masterton. He is the past master of the first person narrative, and yet he also continues to develop the style he defines.Whilst this is a great read, fully a Masterton book, some recent works like Edgewise, and the Devil in Grey show how he does Supernatural Horror so well.
And yet, Since I started with Charnel House in approximately 1977-78, I would say that his books like THE DEVILS OF D DAY, THE WELLS OF HELL, DJINN ( Number three with The Great Harry Erskine) and others, especially ones like Mirror,and TENGU show that Masterton is probably the only person he makes you leave your lights on, and leaves some of the J-Animation and J-Horror for ( and I wish this was so, sometimes) Dead. If someone needs ideas for an English language Horror film, MAKE A MASTERTON BOOK INTO A FILM !!!
