Stalking You Now - by Jeff Strand - Wonderfully demented novella
5 of 5 Stars
When you visit Jeff Strand's website at jeffstrand.wordpress.com, the first thing you notice is the greeting "Welcome to Gleefully Macabre!" And that phrase pretty much describes the work of this writer who is as popular with other horror writers as he is with his growing fan base. As he did last year, Jeff will once again emcee the 2013 Bram Stoker Awards® Banquet and act as Toastmaster at the World Horror Convention 2013. Both of these events are part of the Bram Stoker Awards Weekend, to be held in New Orleans from June 13-16, 2013.
His latest release is the Novella, Stalking You Now. A demented little tension builder, told effectively in the 1st person. It's the story of a deranged madman who stumbles over someone even crazier than he is.
When you pick up a Jeff Strand book, you know it's going to be a fun read and that's just what this is. Plus, he uses one of my all time favorite words, "discombobulated." Oh, it's a real word, go ahead and Google it. I'll wait.
Subject matter and some colorful language makes this one for adults. But I think even some of my non-horror frends will enjoy Stalking You Now, avalable now for the Kindle and in other digital formats soon.
