An old man is dragged out from his burning house, but he is not thankful to the heroic firefighter. What follows on is a strange mix of “batty old man” and possible blood curse.
IRW leaves you guessing right to the very end. As dead people started piling up around the central character I did have to smirk at some of the OTT deaths. Not sure if intentional but it did make me giggle in that nervous way at the casualness of it all.
Loved the quotes at the beginning of the book. Made me want to watch Hocus Pocus again.
It’s all happy families until there is a knock at the door, IRW really did fantastically well to the build the tension in this short story.
I enjoyed this story as could not tell where it would end up, eventually the ending was fantastic! I found the family dynamic and the fathers thoughts were very realistic, if shocking.
So very tongue in cheek, an hysterical giggle from start to finish.
The joys of fan love as IRW gets a visit from an unhinged fan! Bit close to home this one for me, as I have wasted many an hour camped out in various authors shed, but never thought to order pizza – way to go Matty-Bob.
I was snorting and giggling through this story and it was really great to see IRW humorous side.
Loved the Misery reference and I’m sure there were many more that I missed as IRW is so clever in adding little bits like that, just see the blurb to Last Winter, sorry Final Winter!
Btw Matty-Bob I DO love IRW more than you, so ner!
