It's quite simple, really. Jeffrey Kosh is one of the best. In Spirits and Thought Forms, he educates you, makes you think a little deeper about masks and what spirits await you behind them, then he sends chills up and down your spine in terror. Mixed together, it makes for all the necessary ingredients of a deliciously frightful read. Jeffrey Kosh also writes about making wishes...at your own peril. Well, here's one: I wish I may, I wish I might; Jeffrey Kosh, you SCARED THE HELL OUT OF ME tonight! Put Spirits and Thought Forms on your list to buy, read, and enjoy, but don't forget to look under the bed before you go to sleep.

Once again Jeffrey Kosh gives you a glimpse of how dark his mind can be and how the darkness of Prosperity Glades can find it's own way to imbed itself within the darkest parts of your imagination.
In this book you get some background into a dark and fearful world where you can never quite tell who will be taken captive by one of the many spirits that inhabit a small Florida county that has been inhabited by evil for as long as the land has been there. Every story within this book will make you want to learn more about what is happening in Prosperity. What will you believe when you finish reading? Well I'll tell you that you will learn how your own mind can feel the fear and you will be left with a feeling of uneasy.
This is not a book for the faint hearted but you don't have to be a hard core horror fan to enjoy it. I will let you know that there are parts of this book that involve children and tackle the taboo subject of child abuse but everything is very tastefully written and nothing in Jeffrey's writing is ever anymore uncomfortable to read than it is intended to be. Every detail is just enough to let you feel the emotion that is happening at that time in the story, weather it be pain, fear, hate, sadness or even pleasure that can take a life of it's own from a woman's lust.
A must read book for all horror fans, but I would like to advise that everyone read Feeding The Urge before reading this one to better understand the characters that take a life of their own in both of these books.
