Book Description

Hubert is a killer. He loves the sport of it - the thrill of the hunt - and Hubert can feel and share in the pain of his victims as they breathe their final breath.

Larry is a young boy who dreams about death before it happens. He can't remember his dreams by day, but by night he is haunted by the faces and words of the dying. When the two end up in the same town, and become aware of one another, a classic battle of good and evil ensues. Blood Dreams is an old school supernatural thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

5.0 out of 5 stars East Texas Blood Splatter December 20, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
For a few years, mild English professor Bill Crider (writer of several mystery series, including the Sheriff Dan Rhodes books) had a very disturbed alter ego named Jack MacLane. From what I've been able to decipher, MacLane wrote five novels back in the old 1980s horror market, and these books were for the Zebra line, which was noted for its generous scattering of blood and guts.

I remember reading a couple of the MacLane books back in the day, and one of my brothers who is a horror aficionado still swears by those books. We were recently in an old book shop and he was positively gleeful to find an original copy of the book I just read: Blood Dreams.

At the time, I didn't know Bill Crider had written those. Nor can I imagine what twisted cesspool he fished to come up with those tales. All I can say is that Crider/MacLane knew what he was doing back in those days of early splatterpunk horror.

This particular tale revolves around a demented hobbyist murderer named Hubert Carton as well as a ten year old boy named Larry who is haunted by dreams of death. Both of these characters have dark powers. Hubert is able to enter the minds of people he kills to relish their dying fear. Larry has the ability to predict death, but details - and even memory of the events - elude him. Only his mother and father knew about his ability, and his father couldn't outwit his own violent demise when he knew it was coming.

The book is a frantic, whip-crack read that at first alternates between chapters concerning Hubert and Larry. I settled in easily for the read and enjoyed turning pages (electronically). There's a definite time gap because the narrative picks up when Hubert is a young boy and follows him into his adulthood.

I was ready to read this book the moment I saw it while I was searching for a good summer read. Alas, this book stuck out on the shelf, and, drawn to it's catchy artwork, depicting a man, smeared in blood, I figured this might very well be a good book to delve into after James Herberts' "The Dark". I was, as most of the time, pleased with my judge of character in books. The story of "Blood Dreams" is a well weaved concept about two males, one, an uncaught killer, who loves the sport of the killing. His name is Hubert, and he can feel the pain, fear, and death as his victims take their last breath. The other, is a young boy named Larry, who dreams about death before it happens. He has no way of remembering his dreams in the sunlight, but in the dark of night, he screams in his sleep as he is taunted by faces, and words. Now, Larry is in the same town as Hubert...and he's seen what Hubert see's, feels what Hubert feel's, for he is a force too big to avoid. Once Hubert see's Larry, a battle of good and evil will ensue. Mystery author Bill Cridder is the writer of this creepy thriller that combinds both psychological terror, and supernatural happenings. A real page turner from beginning to end, we are taken into a world where your wildest nightmares will come true.
The book does, however, suffer simplistic storytelling, so some depth may not come as suspected.
