Thanks Char. He's been on my radar because of one of your earlier posts, but I will move him up on the list.

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.

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.
Thanks for your kind comments!
I hope you enjoy whichever book you decide to try. :)
