I've had this book on kindle for a few months but hadn't got around to reading it until now. What a great little read! Jeremy is one of those sadly perfect victims for the school bullies in high school. Anyone who has experienced any bullying will be able to empathise with Jeremy and his situation. The poor kid is pushed to breaking point and that's when the horror really revs up.

Matt Hickman has to be congratulated for writing an absolute corker of a book. I read it in one sitting which is a rare thing for me. The storyline flowed seamlessly, and the fantastic characters, made this tale of evil a great experience. I look forward to reading more of his work.

This is the first book I've read from new horror author, Matt Hickman, and I have to say, it's one hell of a debut.

With this novella, Matt displays a level of assuredness that's highly impressive. He writes with a fluid, highly accessible style that deftly paints a portrait of a boy losing his innocence and his decency in a riveting, believable and mournful manner. The most impressive aspect of the tale, for me, is teh dialogue. It never feels forced, is never over-egged and always hits the right mark. This is how people talk. The details - the character nuance - its all in the dialogue. These people feel real. Not stylised, just real, everyday people. It's brilliant.

The story is slow burn, as Matt takes the time to allow you to care for his creations, and it pays off in dividends. The slow build is sad, intriguing and focused, bringing us into Jeremy's all too familiar familial crisis. Without giving anything away, the tale builds to a ferocious climax, and the violence has all the more impact as you really do feel a sense of kinship with Jeremy in the early stages. By the time a game-changing event occurs, you're thoroughly entrenched in the boy's plight. It's grounded, realistic and relatable to all too many of us. When the novel shifts up a few gears, it's jarring, tense and very, very dark. Horror fans will lap up the savage climax, and be left clambering for more, which I have a strong feeling we're going to get.

As a standalone story, Jeremy works as a tale of vengeance wrought, yet there are mysteries within, and it seems very clear that this a story with much left to tell. I'll be looking out for the next chapter in this dark tale of bitterness taken to the extreme.

Matt Hickman is an author to watch.

Matt Hickman is a name to watch in the upcoming new breed of horror that is arising. His attention to detail and character development is exceptional for a new author.

The novella starts every well building scope and plot development are very strongly establish. The book does suddenly shift gears and might have been able to handle this in novel form. Saying that, it does in no way take away from the main pleasure of the story, just a way to improve.

It will be interesting to see if Hickman will pick up the character in other instalments. He would make an interesting character to make cameo appearances in future stories and books.

Overall, I would highly recommend that you give this a try as this writer is on his way to becoming something special. Great little read that makes you hunger for more. I'm becoming a big fan.

I always like to disclose any connections I have to the author of the books I review, and to remind you that when I read something other than in the capacity of an editor, I read and review in the capacity of a customer, who either enjoys it or doesn't. My writer friends know this, and I expect honesty from them and they can expect it from me. Matt Hickman and I have become friends via Facebook and are set to meet in person around Em-Con 2016. Matt has placed stories with my publishing house Dark Chapter Press, including Brazen and the Kids anthology.
Still here?... then let's begin.
Jeremy is the story of a young lad picked on at school, who sticks close to his little group of pals who mostly live in fear of a school bully who adores tormenting them. He learns to stand up for himself, but in turn suffers a horrific injury, and emerges very different to the shrunken, frightened creature he was before.
This is quite a short novella, Hickman's first, I believe. I don't want to blow the plot by dwelling on it too long, but the premise and characters are great.
Matt Hickman conjures up such a realistic portrayal of the loneliness of latch-key kid Jeremy, who is comfortable and wants for nothing save the attention of his too-busy parents. The shortness of the story does not leave it without its twists and a couple of angles took me by surprise.
Something annoyed me though. I would have been much happier with more. The book feels a bit like two episodes of something, or a novel where the second act is missing. We skip time at one point, and I have a feeling the time that is skipped could have been very interesting, if not focussing on Jeremy, perhaps those around him.

This is one of those rare occasions when this book was not directly submitted for review. I picked up a copy of Jeremy: Evil Has One Name direct from the author, Matt Hickman at a convention earlier in the year. I have spoken with Matt for about a year now but never met the fella before. I had heard good things about his writing.

The only story I have read of his prior to this was the short story, Anna in the Dark Chapter Press anthology, Kids. I was quite impressed with that one but really wanted to read something a bit longer to see how he coped with that. Again, even though I sort of know the fella (he has weird taste in T-shirts), this does not gain any favours when I review.

This is what I thought.

Jeremy is a troubled eleven-year-old boy. He is an only child and may as well not even exist as far as his parents are concerned. He wants for nothing material, but never gets the emotional love a child deserves.

Along with his friends, Sam and Cole, he suffers at the hands of two school bullies when he moves to secondary school. They just will not let up with the name calling and general nastiness.

When the bullies cause Jeremy and his friends to make a mess of a science experiment and get suspended from school, things take an even nastier turn when a chance meeting outside school leads to a disaster.

Our main character as you would guess is Jeremy. I felt so sorry for this lad. He has everything and yet he has nothing. Everything material a kid could wish for but nothing meaningful from his parents. He is a gentle lad but amidst all his woes, he keeps working in school and grades are good. The bullies make his hellish life just that little bit worse. Sam and Cole are much the same sort of characters.
