Review: THE BOOGEYMAN' S INTERN by Matt Betts

I think this book will be very appealing to readers of fantasy or traditional fairy tales, if you like tradition turned on its head and knocked for a loop. This is NOT your grandfather's fairy tale. I was reminded of Sir Terry Pratchett' s SMALL GODS, as THE BOOGEYMAN' S INTERN deals quite a bit with lack of belief and how that affects deities and other non-worldly entities, including Imaginary Friends, the category into which our feckless protagonist Abe falls. Rather, formerly fell, because Abe has become not only feckless, but failing. So no one is more vastly surprised than he when he is tapped by the Hill' s Council (Father Time, Mother Nature, and Death) to investigate and solve an impossible mystery: the very first ever death on the Hill.
