I loved staying up late at night and scaring myself right before bed. It drove my parents crazy. Often, I'd get myself so worked up that every little noise, every little movement in the house made me want to pull the covers up over my head. It was wonderful. So when I got my copy of Brian's Monsters & Demons - it was, in many ways, a return to my childhood.
First, I love short story collections. With all the different choices, a reader can chose like they are going to through a literary buffet line. People can almost always find something that is going to appeal to them in such a selection, so I salute Brian for going this way.
Second, in today's face paced world, I find that demands on my time are constantly creeping in more and more. Stopping to take a few moments for myself is very precious to me. I appreciate when I can have the chance to enjoy a whole story from start to finish. It's like watching episodes of Scooby-Doo all over again. Scary stories just seem to fit the bill perfectly for such occasions.
Brian's Monsters & Demons is a wonderful series of short stories that pull at all those little strings deep within every one of us. Brian opens up that place that is just begging to be frightened and then scratches that itch. There are tales here where the reader easily gets transported to those dark areas of the human subconscious - I found that especially true in stories like Arraziel and Click-Clack.
Two of my favorites from this collection are The Nest and Harvey. They really hit home with me because they deal with things that I myself find frightening, snakes and clowns (what is it about clowns that creep so many of us out, anyway?) All my life it's things like those that have made me very uncomfortable, and Brian did a wonderful job at connecting to that.
Look - Scary stories aren't for everyone. Just as romance or fantasy, or self-help books aren't everyone's cup of tea, this book is for people looking for a good scare. But if you ARE the type of person who is a little twisted, or perhaps a little bit off, than downloading Monsters & Demons is for you. I think you are going to enjoy reading the stories Brian has written here. They are well written, easy to read, and above all scary. And maybe, just maybe, at the end of Monsters & Demons you might find yourself re-checking your closet or taking one more peek under your bed before turning out the light. I think, should that occur, it would make Brian very happy, indeed.
As with all anthologies I preferred some stories over others. Live Art us a great, quick tale. Harvey, a longer tale stays with you and is terrifying. Legion has a great twist and was very inventive. My only problem with Arraziel and Click Clack is that they weren't long enough. I found the stories interesting and well written, but, I wanted to see more of the world that I was introduced to.
Enjoyed this book and am looking forward to reading more from Brian.
