Books read in 2012: No. 55 -- The Disembodied

by John Grover

Started: June 17
Finished: June 17

Notes: This is another short tale from an author I have interviewed.

Mini review: I have to say, I felt this was one of the more original horror stories I've read in some while, all while keeping within fairly familiar and traditional horror tropes ... the small town with a dark secret, beasties that come out of the woods, etc. The main villain(s) here is different from most of its type, but I'm trying not to give too much away. Also, I'd like to add, the title is perfect for this story; it seems a relatively simple title, and it is, but it's also most fitting.
