5.0 out of 5 stars Another masterful tale from The Dark Horse of Horror, 6 Nov 2009
This review is from: Walkers (Paperback)
There are many big names in horror fiction; King, Koontz, Little, Lumley, Herbert etc. Together, through thousands of pounds worth of marketing, they stand in a bright and arresting lime light.

Lurking in the shadows of these men, hoarding tales which are often darker, and on occasion better, is Graham Masterton.

He writes like no other, and is far scarier than the big names in horror. How he is not more widely recognised is beyond me.

He has written a lot of books (50+), and having read a handful I've noticed he can be a little hit or miss. Tengu and Black Angel were not good at all. But every now and again I find an absolute gem.

Walkers is one of these.

So original, so creepy, so bloody - it out-does anything Herbet and Little have done on an imaginitive scale. After reading the blurb, I expected Walkers to be something akin to The Shinning. Not so. It is a thriller, rather than a slow burning, bump-in-the-night type of story of the Stephen King school. There are some real edge of the seat moments; like when our protagonist is being chased by cursed maniacs that are fused with stone, swimming through the pavement like sharks at hunt.

This is a good place to start if you're new to Masterton. If you regard yourself as a horror fan, then you need to be aware of this man, otherwise your missing out on a writer who has original vision, and a real knack for scaring.
