5.0 out of 5 stars Shaggy Dean Story, 28 July 2014
Lord Dunsany is one of my all-time favourite authors. Ever since I bought a battered copy of the Lin Carter edited collection of his early short works, "Beyond The Fields We Know", way back when, I have loved his fantasy stories.

Dunsany was a gifted and accomplished writer, successful as poet and playwright in his lifetime, but it as a short story writer that he is remembered today, and he was extremely prolific in this form of writing.

The only real criticism I'd have of this generally good quality product is that the lift, while a brilliant idea and adding dynamism to play, would probably last longer-and be easier to fit- if it was set in a shaft, perhaps plastic.

Slow burn "psychological" thriller set in small town USA.

Constructed more or less as a whodunnit; murderous attacks in town are shown, there's with a small group of suspects, clues for the reader to spot and, after the guilty party is revealed, the story winds up pretty quickly, Really, though, the author seems more interested in an examination as to how the gruesome events affect the protagonists and the whole town at large.

An enjoyable read, not overly gorey, perhaps the murderer is a little bit predicatable , I would have preferred a few more red herrings along the way. As it stands though, the story has an uncluttered linear plotline, which retains the… Read more
