Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Clegg (The Machinery of Night) shows how the bestial aspects of horror and humanity are interchangeable in this quartet of psychological suspense stories. "A Madness of Starlings" concerns a man who looks to nature for reassurance of his fatherly instincts only to find his dislocating feelings of angst and alienation mirrored instead. In "The Dark Game," an American soldier turns tables on his captors in Vietnam with the help of an especially brutal survival trick involving self-hypnosis. "The American" is a spare, Hemingwayesque tale of threatened manhood with an Alfred Hitchcock twist. "The Wolf" tells of a hunting expedition in which the roles of predator and prey are craftily reversed. Though several stories stretch the theme of this volume, each makes riveting reading. (Nov.)

At last, you've found me. Be sure to sign up for my email newsletter at DouglasClegg.com and "Follow" me here on Amazon, as well. Thank you.

ABOUT ME: I began scribbling stories at 5, typing them by the age of 8, and seeking publication for them beginning in my 20s. I am currently working on several novels, stories, and screenplays.

I favor psychological suspense and supernatural tales. My whole life, I've been drawn to reading gothics, horror, supernatural, suspense, fantasy and pretty much anything that swept me off my feet, imagination-wise.

I live in New England in a place surrounded by sea, woods, and stone walls made of local granite, been with my husband for more than 30 years, and generally am servant to a dog, cat, and many fish plus a few frogs in the backyard pond.

But additionally, I serve the story. I hope you enjoy what you find within my fiction.

Thank you for checking out my novels and stories.
