The Halloween Children reviewed by Rue Morgue


October 25, 2014

Rue Morgue has reviewed The Halloween Children (which I co-wrote with Norman Prentiss) and the reviewer definitely got what Norman and I tried to do with this one:

“This latest installment in Earthling Publications’ annual Halloween series recollects the macabre and gruesome events that befall a suburban apartment. Delivered through a series of journal entries and interview transcripts, The Halloween Children goes beyond the creepy kids and paranormal hauntings tropes to deliver a disturbing and thought-provoking look into family dynamics and our own changing imaginations.”
— Rue Morgue issue #149

The Halloween Children reviewed by October Country


October 3, 2014

Blu Gilliand over at October Country has reviewed The Halloween Children (which I co-wrote with Norman Prentiss for Earthling Publications) and he had some very nice things to say about the book:

The Halloween Children is a twisty funhouse ride through the minds of Brian James Freeman and Norman Prentiss, two enormously talented writers who have created an instant Halloween classic in this, their first collaboration. Much like Norm Partridge’s Dark HarvestThe Halloween Children is an expert distillation of the Halloween season, capturing that peculiar mix of excitement, dread and outright fear in its pages… From the great, early slow build of the book to the terrifying, satisfying payoff, The Halloween Children is a complete success. Freeman and Prentiss do a great job in blending their unique styles into one pure voice – like Stephen King and Peter Straub with The Talisman and Black House, you’ll try to guess who wrote what, and you’ll most likely get it wrong. Reading this was the perfect kickoff to the Halloween season for me, and I have a feeling it will be part of my permanent October rotation for a long time to come.”

Blu had a lot more to day and you can read the full review at October Country.
