The Lurkers in the Abyss and Other Tales of Terror
by David a Riley

"Lurkers" has to be the finest collection of single author short stories that I've read in many a year.
This collection is 100% entertainment. There's not a week story in the book. These are simply great stories extremely well told.
Every single one of these stories oozes straight forward old school story telling. And what sets them even higher above the competition than they already are is the hard edge of urbanity with a strong touch of modern sensibility. There's not one drop of ironic post modernism in the book. Just pure grim horror. There's no happy endings in these stories. and that's one of the books joys. Mr. Riley doesn't pull any punches or weaken his tales with false sentimentality. Bad things happen to the undeserving in David's universe.

If you love demons, monsters, zombies, cursed locations, sorcerers returning from the dead, a sly nod to HPL and Stephen king then this collection is for you. And it's no wonder that the titular story made not only the years best list when it came out, but was also chosen by John Pelan for Cemetery Dance's monster "Centuries Best" collection.

The only reason I'm giving this 4 stars is that if I gave it 5 then you would just figure that I was full of it if I gave it five stars.
It's a five star book though in all honesty.

Believe me though, (And I know what I'm talking about. I work for Weird Tales Magazine) I'm a tough sell after reading horror for over 40 years and this is one of the finest new collections that you can find today. Do yourself a big favour and order it now.
I purchased my copy through Amazon.de

Format: Paperback
This fiction collection is a dark tour de force that charts David's writing through various professional publications. Usually in a single author collection you will find a couple of space fillers to up the word count, but in this case there wasn't a single story that I didn't enjoy reading. David has a knack for writing believable characters, using prose that grabs the reader and drags them into the story. With stories stretching the gamut of dark delights, his effortless prose makes it look easy, using his skill to elicit a range of emotions from the reader. David's work deserves far more attention. A highly recommended collection, and if there's any justice, it should win awards.
