The Stuff of NightmaresKyle has always been afraid of things especially dying Whilst on a train on a school trip Kyl As they do in John Oliver's hometown in England I do my Halloween stuff well mostly read horror themed books in February as well So keeping up with that impromptu tradition I picked this up At first I was liking it well enough I was like gimme contemporary diverse authors no need to Walter Mosley this up Let's face it we are not Luke Cage But a uarter of way in it started to go downhill and I suddenly realized this was rather a bland offering Whenever I read badly written books I think of Stephen King I know there is no correlation between those two things It is just that King has written so much on how not to write badly that I can't not think of him or his advice when I chance upon horrendous writing Nicest thing I can say about this novel is that it is properly written and that it's grammatically sound But that's probably by default I was going to give it only one star Then I bumped it up to three because some of the stories in it were really great From any number of them a better book could have sprung but those stories did buttress this mess and it is worth a skim because of that In an odd way this does remind me of an infinitely better novel; Gargoyle by David Andrews I hope Andrews has written another book by now Even though I had loved Gargoyle for some reason I disliked it immensely tooAnd I'll admit there is something to living through the nightmares of others That's scarring in a way that even our own rotten dreams are not Incidentally I bought this book with a girl who is than just a friend and yet she is less than what she could be
