Customer Review

Reviewed in Australia on 23 June 2014
McCammon has a rich imagination whose talent is commensurate with King, Koontz and other contemporaries. Unfortunately there were only a few entries in this collection that were entertaining and of quality. The novella "Blue World" that takes up half the space was a bit slow and too sweet for my taste. The standout stories were "Nightcrawlers" because anything with a Vietnam vet that was the victim of an Agent Orange-type chemical is worth it. "Night Calls the Green Falcon" is cool nostalgia and "Yellowjacket Summer" read like a collaboration with Stephen King. "He'll Come Knocking at Your Door" took some inspiration from Jackson's "The Lottery". "Something Passed By" was the most inventive where McCammon creates an overwhelming post-apocalyptic world demonstrating his vivid imagination.
