Halfway Down The StairsHalfway Down The Stairs by Gary A. Braunbeck

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

For those of you with squeamish stomachs or those who avoid tales of human suffering, please pass by this book. For those of you who love Lovecraft, King, Crouch, Koontz, Barker, or whomever your favorite horror author is, you just might want to pick this one up. I don’t know how it is that I’ve never read a Braunbeck novel prior to this one since I love horror as a genre. There are a few bits within that are definitely for the stronger willed but overall this is a gem. The rest of the bits are absolutely wonderful to read. I’ve now added Braunbeck to my list of horror authors to keep a collection of their books in print in my personal library. His craft is handled with skill and a mastery of the English language. I received an ARC through library thing in exchange for an honest review. This in no way influenced my opinion.
