Review: DREAM WOODS by Patrick Lacey

All my life, since early childhood, I've found the concept of amusement parks frightening. Why? I've never been near one. Until now: reading the excellent DREAM WOODS, I finally understand the root of my fears. How can I encapsulate the terror?

Patrick Lacey is a wonderfully subtle writer. Life, for his characters, proceeds normally [albeit dysfunctionally], until--smack!! The terror!! The frights take many forms, from childhood boogeyman made real, to murder, mutilation, and a portal to---read and find out.

Reader, do yourself a favor. Lock your doors, keep the emergency number on speed dial, put your home guard dog in the room with you; and just remember: sometimes memories are rose-coloured, and you really don't want to go back there again.
