Thanks Char. He's been on my radar because of one of your earlier posts, but I will move him up on the list.
I hope that you love him as much as I do when do get around to checking him out, BT.

Well, I have just downloaded The Elementals. So, hopefully I'll read it in the next month.
Yay!!! (I SO hope that you'll enjoy it.) :)
Thank you, OB. That means a lot to me because I worked hard on this piece. :)

Great post. I know McDowell's work only through his scripts for Tales from the Darkside (all of which I reviewed a couple years back), He wrote some fine scripts for the show, such as Inside the Closet. I'll keep my eyes open for his novels.
Thank you!
I have not yet had the pleasure of reading those! I'll have to keep an eye out for them AND the show.

Oh wow -Tales from the Darkside- that's a flashback! I haven't seen those in a long time. I did not realize he wrote those scripts. I use to watch them all of the time.

Great post, Char! I haven't read anything by him, but it appears I'm off to bulk up my wishlist some more. :)
Thank you, Michael!

I added Gilded Needles-the plot is captivating! Thanks for posting this!
As the page turns, I can only hope you enjoy it as much as I did, when you get to it. :)

Gotta say I know how you feel. I found this blog post while looking him up because I, too was saddened to hear of his passing. What's worse is I thought he'd died ages ago. I'd heard him mentioned elsewhere while looking up trivia about Beetlejuice and for some reason got the impression he'd been diagnosed just before writing the film. I now realize he died ten years after I thought he did.

Thank you for this post and for taking the time to let me know a little more about him. I hope to read some of his work soon.
