Product description


Realism is what makes this novel so terrifying... the monsters ..are human, and all the more horrifying for it. --Mike Baker, Afraid Magazine

THE GIRL NEXT DOOR is alive...it does not just promise terror but actually delivers it.. it's a page-turner.. --Stephen King, from the Introduction to The Girl Next Door

"This is the real stuff, horror embedded in genuine literature, an uncomfortable dip into the pitch blackness in the underside of the American literary tradition."-- --Edward Bryant, Locus Publications

About the Author

Jack Ketchum is the pseudonym for a former actor, teacher, literary agent, lumber salesman, and soda jerk. He is also a former flower child and baby boomer who figures that in 1956 Elvis, dinosaurs and horror probably saved his life. His first novel, OFF SEASON, an updating of the Sawney Beane story, prompted the Village Voice to publicly scold its publisher in print for publishing violent pornography. He has always wondered what they would think of THE GIRL NEXT DOOR. His short story THE BOX won a 1994 Bram Stoker Award from HWA and he has written nine novels, Including OFF SEASON, the sequel to OFF SEASON - OFFSPRING, RED, and BROKEN ON THE WHEEL OF SEX.
