Gavin, once a published author and now unofficial keeper of the town's dark secrets, invites the sheriff to the Skylark Diner, where what he seeks will be revealed in the pages of a journal.
The sheriff will get his answer tonight.....that there are some things in this world you can't explain.
A brilliant collection of tales, forged into a single, and singular work of quiet horror, stories within stories expand outward, offering answers that invite the questions that will keep readers up long into the night.
Lucia's writing is pitch perfect. Masterfully creepy and subtle, his portrait of a small town, both the good and the bad, is spot-on, laying a solid foundation of reality for the otherness that lurks in the shadows.
Highest possible recommendation.
The newcomer to town is widowed dad Chris, a local law enforcement officer who really wants to do right by the citizens he’s sworn to protect and serve. It gets frustrating, though, when there’s all this hidden mystery and behind the scenes stuff nobody will tell him about.
Finally, having had enough, he slaps down an ultimatum to his poker night pals – also prominent people in Clifton Heights: a teacher, a doctor, a priest. If he’s going to be able to do his job, he tells them, then he needs some answers. He needs to understand.
So, the writer among them presents him with a series of manuscripts, supposedly the truth behind several recent, peculiar, unsolved or unsatisfactorily-solved cases. The more Chris reads, the more he finds himself reluctantly drawn toward belief.
The stories may start out with more ordinary scandals of racism, harassment, murder, and revenge … but they swiftly take darker, stranger turns. Stories with inexplicable disappearances, supernatural overtones, entities, hauntings, and monstrous magic.
Each on its own works well; strung together this way, like weird but beautiful beads, the result is all the more fascinating. Really neatly done. And the first in an ongoing series, as the mysteries and mythology of Clifton Heights continue to unfold.
One thing’s for sure, I really don’t want to end up in Clifton Heights, New York.
I am unfamiliar with Lucia’s previous work, so I cannot say whether Things Slip Through is better than anything else he’s written, but I will say that its unique approach piqued my interest. The writing itself kept me turning the pages, the characters were fun to get to know, but what I enjoyed the most were the horrors. I liked how Things Slip Through gave me the literal chills every now and again.
Basically, it’s a good book that other authors will benefit from reading (due to the complex crafting of the book), and readers will enjoy (due to the wonderful, creepy plot).
In Things Slip Through, the horror flows from “real” horror (racism), to the mythical Wendigo, to trans-dimensional disappearances, and seemingly, everything in-between. While I did find a couple of the journal entries to be a bit slow or repetitive, the majority of them are fantastic. Lucia’s writing is so excellent that it pulls you through any mild-hiccups along the way.
I wasn't sure how I wanted to rate the book after finishing it, but just this morning, found myself wanting to dive back into Clifton Heights and learn more. That’s the sign of a pretty amazing piece of fiction. I give Things Slip Through, 4 stars. But it’s really more like a very strong 4.5.
