If you thought that was a masterpiece of horror, take a look at his "Kid". This may be a short story but Steve has condensed as much into it as most authors would in a complete novel. He excels at concise, no-holds-barred prose and this is horror in its rawest form. If you love to be terrified, then this is a page turner that will have you panting for more. It had my eyes out on stalks, and I'm not squeamish. A keeper.
I wish I could say plotting was the heart, but I failed to note that there was a heart to the narrative. Maybe the old saying, "actions speak louder than words," is the message/heart here. Maybe it's that even the desperate and choiceless are never really left without some other recourse. I don't know.
The writing is viscerally compact and alarming, which works great for many fans of the horror genre, including me. It's why I'm giving this three stars. Minus two stars because it isn't something that will haunt me or stick in my head for long. I think with a little more life (to eviscerate later) would have made all the difference here.
