A TRULY DARK, COMEDIC NOVEL!!!Reviewed in the United States on 6 December 2015
Wow, THE SUBTERRANEAN SEASON by Dale Bailey was a very strange tale, a darkly horrific one, laced liberally with black humor! Not to rehash the plot, as it is concisely laid out in the book's synopsis, but this story features perhaps the most despicable protagonist I have ever come across. It almost made me put the book down, because this guy has absolutely NO redeeming qualities! I am so glad that I continued on, however, as the book is quite good, well-written, and as the first reviewer already said, has the "perfect ending for our narrator and the overall tale as well." Highly recommended!

but there is so much fun to be had at his expenseReviewed in the United States on 19 November 2015
A riveting, remorseless horror novel with laser focus, structured as tightly as a short story. It's a campus horror novel, of which there are far too few. Everything in it advances toward one goal. It's the sort of story I suppose could be a hard sell for some readers, in that the main character is barely sympathetic even at the outset, and becomes less so as it goes...but there is so much fun to be had at his expense. It's horror, folks! Sympathetic characters are overrated! The writing is a model of cleverness and clarity; I laughed a lot, and also cringed. It all ends badly...and perfectly.
