I was right...
Haunted - James Herbert

Thought so.  That was creepy, disturbing and strange.  I read it as 80s Horror and could have used it for ghosts and haunted houses.  This is the story of a man working for a psychic research institute who mostly debunks psychics and haunted house stories finding himself in a house that the occupants claim is haunted.  There's a lot of strange stuff happening when he arrives and his usual crutch of alcohol may not work this time.  There's no phone and it's the 80s.

 

Oh man, that was twisted. I'm not sure how some of the events in the plot worked but that was a twisted story that I'm not sure David Ash is going to recover any time soon from.  I did get one of the major twists fairly early on, but still I was creeped out by it all.

 

It did feature 80s treatment of female characters and does linger a bit too much on value based on looks. A product of it's time.

Haunted - James Herbert

why do I get the feeling that almost everybody in this story is dead apart from a small few? I have no idea how this is going to pan out but I'm starting to suspect some things here.

Haunted - James Herbert

A paranormal investigator investigating a reportedly haunted house.... this falls under haunted house, supernatural, terror in a small town and 80s horror (published in 1988 originally).  So far there's been a lot of smoking and a fair amount of drinking, our hero seems to be a functional alcoholic...

Nobody True James Herbert Halloween Bingo-Supernatural
Nobody True - James Herbert

 

Yay, that's 2 ticks off I didn't actually know this at the time. But I randomly picked James Herbert's Nobody True and it actually Turned out to be a really good random pick of a book I could use for the supernatural section of the Halloween bingo i'm doing.

 

 

 

 

I think by now everyone who reads my blog knows how much I adore James Herbet he's like right up there in my favourite authors Sadly, he's not with us anymore so this story really struck chords with me. It's such an unusual tale. I've never actually read anything like this! It has so many plots and turns.

 

Jim True wasn’t there when he died. While he was ‘away’ on an out-of-body experience (something he has been able to do since he was a child) someone murders him. And not just murder's him, they totally mangle his body. It's now up to James to now only find out what the hell happened to his body, but to understand the now supernatural world he lives in and stop a dark threat that looms over his family and loved ones.

 

Honestly, this was one hell of a tale and totally deserves its place on the supernatural box of the Halloween board.
