The first two entries into this series focused on Gary Hack, a heroin addicted director of pornographic films exploiting a variety of monsters. For this new story, West – wisely sensing that Hack's storyline has already been explored to the degree that it really shouldn't remain front and center anymore- shifts the focus to one of the author's most memorable creations, Johnny Stucke, a major player in the NYC underworld introduced in the previous book, who is the modern incarnation of Frankenstein's Monster. Hack is still a major character, but he occupies more of a supporting role for much of this outing.
This time, the story concerns itself with an ancient, bitter rivalry between Frankenstein's Monster and Dracula, stemming back over the ages to the day the legendary vampire discovered the monster living a lonely, miserable existence in a cave. After forging a unique bond, things go severely awry between the two (a bravura sequence West handles with the skill of a true craftsman), setting the stage for an inevitable confrontation between these two monsters of yore that's been brewing for centuries.Read more ›
“They are children. Orphans," Primul said, trying to appeal to a soul within Lucian that just wasn’t there. “They have been plagued enough in their miserable little lives. Take whomever else you like from this town, but pass this building by.”
“… feel free to attack Johnny Stücke. You merely have to cut the strings and he'll just fall apart."
“Johnny's voice sounded as if the monster were calling Gary's name from a hundred years ago.”
I had been reading north, south, east – and thoroughly enjoying the journey. Then I realized, once again – it was time to head West.
Night Things: Dracula versus Frankenstein firmly expands author Terry West with a new depth unlike anything I have read of his before. This story incubated an increased love for the character of Johnny Stücke. I saw him as a genuine anti-hero. I appreciated that his violence is often stimulated by honor, especially of those he feels an affinity with – could that affinity be called – love? So often, in our everyday lives, people do and say things for which we would love to experience immediate restitution and vindication. Enter: Johnny Stücke.
Mr West is so very gritty. This story needs to become a script and find its way into the hands of directors Frank Miller, Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez. It’s action and intrigue all the way. My thoughts as I approached around 1/3 of the way through was, “Oh, my… this is going to be one helluva fight!Read more ›
By Terry M. West
Let me get straight to the point I can't even begin to tell you how many tales I've read from author Terry M.West. I can say that I have yet to read something that I didn't enjoy. Sure some better than others and some stand out in such an over saturated field that is known as the horror authors world.
West is no stranger to the expectations laid upon himself as he's dabbled behind and in front of a camera. So it's safe to say he does his research. NIGHT THINGS is no exception.
Local independent horror smut film director Gary Hack has a unique job in a unique world. In a time where worlds and times collide you have 2 sides to choose from. But make sure you decide the right one.
On one hand you have, what are known as the Night Things led by the ultimate night thing, the one and only Dracula himself and the other by
the mysterious New York crime boss, Johnny Stücke (the creation of Frankenstein) wants to keep the peace between the Night. Once as close as brothers but now sworn enemies the ultimate showdown below the streets of New York is at play.
Based off the famous stories of the two monsters you're also introduced to every creature of legend we've grown up reading about. Vampires, werewolves, zombies and ghouls are now the new inhabitants of these odd times. They have become part of the system.
Based off his Magic Now story West offers up one of the most fun reads I've had in years. While reading West helps paint a visual in your eyes. One as if you were watching Nightbreed or Monster Squad. Intertwining all these different stand alone characters is a precise exercise and he nailed it. His nods to the genre, most noted the additional of Dr. Herbert West.Read more ›
