Charles Grant was arguably the finest writer of horror in the 20th century, and he will be missed. In my opinion, his best writing was with the Oxrun Station series of stories, and this one is of Oxrun Station. Grant was always subtle with his horror, and he depended on story and character, never stooping to depending on spewing entrails or vomiting pea soup like so many of the modern writers. His stuff is scary for all the right reasons. Anything by Charles L Grant is worth reading.

Charles Grant's 3rd novel in his "Oxrun Station" series, reads quaint, in a post-SAW world; one could call Grant's prose florid, his story-construction painstakingly subtle, his characters and their arcs/drives almost soap-operatic. The story builds ever-so-slowly; and like the mystery it is, too, introduces clues that are only unpacked into full-blown horror, in the final act (a hallmark of his early Oxrun series). The pleasures here are not vivid scarlet splashes, or gut-wrenching terrors, or jaw-stretching spectacles: the reader is forewarned. But if you want to see the master of "quiet horror" working his magic -- come visit Yarrow's bookstore in Oxrun Station (I wonder if it's not closed up now, like all these other bookstores?) and browse a spell....
