"At a time when the genre market was dominated by brand name authors, most of whom I loved to read, the work of Charles L. Grant was a breath of fresh, autumnal air. It was different. He took you by the hand, led you deep into a brightly lit forest until you felt secure and safe, and then he would leave you there to watch the darkness creeping in. And he would not promise you death, He would promise you salvation, only to tug the rug from beneath your feet as soon as you were foolish enough to believe him.
And therein lies his power.
Atmosphere. A love of the language.
Economy of words.
And powerful endings that reverse expectation and punch the reader right in the gut."
From the Foreword by Kealan Patrick Burke
