"The Polystyrene Man" is a great story about a writer and the end of nothing. "Wipeout" is a terrifying story about neighbors driven to drive each other to hell.
The stories read so intimately, and autobiographically that I'm very happy David Jester lives on a different continent from me. Yet I fear that as good as his writing is, at some point he'll end up in my city of Los Angeles. When he does, I'm nailing shut my windows and hiding under the covers.
While I would not label the collection as existing strictly or explicitly within the horror genre, I would agree that much of the content does appeal to elements and strategies commonly attributed to themes of horror. A few of the works, namely "When the Reaper Smiles," "Wipeout," and "The Sleepover," possess much more of that traditional edge of terror, foreboding, and a sadistic or sinister concluding twist that embodies what so many of us love most about the horror genre, some even showcasing a healthy dose of gore. Other stories in the collection, however, fall much more into the thriller/suspense genre, which is part of what makes this collection so wonderfully entertaining. The author writes just enough to raise the hairs on the neck and arms, before hanging readers on the edge of knowing, begging imaginations everywhere to fill in the blanks of whatever horrors or dread may lie ahead. One included work, "Little Man," accomplishes this effect especially well, being fairly short in length, but long enough to draw readers into what seems to be nothing more than the innocent curiosity of a sweet and endearing child, only to end swiftly on a note that strongly suggests otherwise.
Included works, such as, "Cold" and "Last Words," play more to the psychological elements of more modern horror and suspense, expertly feeding readers the art of morbid mind-play, demented fantasy, and delusional fear.Read more ›
I particularly liked "Wipeout," a tale of an ornery old lady who finally gets her comeuppance, and "Cold" (hello? Who doesn't love a creepy morgue tale?), to name a few, but there is really something in this collection for all tastes, from ghostly children, to an E.T.
Little Terrors is full of just that. And that's what makes it so much fun!
I would compare these to the best of Steven King or Clive Barker or even Ray Bradbury, and yet they are written in David Jester's own style. I could see these being grouped together as a great TV series.
I think this would be a great book for a mature teen to an adult who loves horror shorts. I'm looking forward to reading more of David Jester's work.
Hard to beat.
This book has nine stories. They range from being full of horror and gore to being full of suspense.
Definitely five stars!
