The show creates a remarkably full picture of an irrepressible and unfailingly . maverick who is revered as one of the prime movers in the juggernaut of Conceptual, Process and Performance art that emerged in the late 1960s and ’70s. He and his twin brother, John Sebastian, were born in New York to the Chilean Surrealist painter Roberto Matta and Anne Clark, an American artist and fashion designer.

My requested book, 'The House on the Brink' was in fine condition and shipped to me in good time. I first read this book when I was about 11 years old in 1973. It was a bit over my head back then and left and eerie trace in my memory...not unlike the mysterious and disturbing trace left by the sinister 'log' that appears in the first chapter of the book. Well, some 40+ years later I decided I wanted to read the book again and resolve the mystery. (Why had I been left with such sense of perturbation? What had the book described? WTF??) Reading it again I was reminded of my childhood experience and quickly remembered certain scenes (so vivid in my mind back then!) I was also struck by the out of date sexism of the characters. (This was somewhat disenchanting). However the plot was easily mastered and the mystery resolved. At last I could put my mind to rest. The sinister log turned out to be...but wait...what's that smell? Something rotten, something flavoured with the odour of despair...GAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

John Gordon has written many children's books, beginning with "The Giant Under the Snow" (a rather creaky, in my opinion) yarn in which modern teenage school children discover ancient god-like powers are re-emerging and battling for control, the dark forces being aided by spooky Tolkien-orc-like "leather men": Australia's Victor Kelleher did this much better in "Master of the Grove", without the modern school children, and Alan Garner's first novel "The Weirdstone of Brisingamen" and its sequel "The Moon of Gomrath" are the great classics of this genre).
In my opinion Gordon's best are early stories: "The Ghost on the Hill", and this one, "The House on the Brink".

Near the edge of the muddy Wash, stands an old house.
One dazzling day a mysterious log-like object emerges from the distant ancient mud.
It looks like a coffin.
It seems to be getting closer to the house.
What IS going on? What does it want? Why?
Who are the people who live in the house or have an interest in it?
How are these people linked with the "log"?

Like the best of such stories (and this one is a ripper!), it would be cruel to spoil the plot.
You don't need vampires, or zombies, to be scared as you read.
Try this book by John Gordon.

As you read, and as you discover more about the people, and the "log", ask yourself, "Is this explainable, as a ghost, or as some other otherwise ordinary bump-in-the-night of fantasy?" OR, "Have I NO IDEA what is happening, not because it makes no sense, but because it is beyond anything, however fantastical, I can think of to explain it?"
A good scarey story is one that eventually explains itself: it was, for example, all because of the unhappy ghost, who wanted to fix something, or pass on a secret from the grave, or find rest, ...
A seriously good scary story leaves you trembly and sweaty, certain you have seen or read something ghastly, but with no idea what it was -- it's "uncanny"!

Another spine-chiller from the author of The Giant Under the Snow, this novel for older teenagers (its tone is dark and scary) has convincing characters and a strong storyline. Threads of ancient history and the supernatural are interwoven with the lives of the main characters to create a thrilling tale.
I enjoyed the way the author suggests that echoes of the past can influence the present and the way the landscape is used to create atmosphere and mystery. I also like the spare but evocative style in which the story is written.
