The Nightrunners (Mass Market)

The Nightrunners (Mass Market) - Joe R. Lansdale, Dean Koontz This book did not disappoint.

I'm not sure exactly where The Nightrunners lies in Lansdale's chronology, but that it is one of his earlier works is a frequently-mentioned fact. Although somewhat uneven in style and tone (especially through the middle section), this book is written with such a hunger and raw passion that I can't imagine any fan of Lansdale's horror not loving this one.

The language drips with creativity, and even though the end wasn't as wildly creative as I expected it would be, coming from Lansdale, it still certainly satisfied. Overall a nice mix of vivid imagery, violence and the supernatural.

A 5-star must-read for any true horror fan.
