In this clever and quirky follow-up to The Gates and The Infernals, Samuel Johnson’s life seems to have finally settled down—after all, he’s still got the company of his faithful dachshund Boswell and his bumbling demon friend Nurd; he has foiled the dreaded forces of darkness not once but twice; and he’s now dating the lovely Lucy Highmore. But things in the little English town of Biddlecombe rarely run smoothly for long. Shadows are gathering in the skies; a black heart of pure evil is bubbling with revenge; and it rather looks as if the Multiverse is about to come to an end, starting with Biddlecombe. When a new toy shop’s opening goes terrifyingly awry, Samuel must gather a ragtag band of dwarfs, policemen, and very polite monsters to face down the greatest threat the Multiverse has ever known, not to mention assorted vampires, a girl with an unnatural fondness for spiders, and highly flammable unfriendly elves. The latest installment of John Connolly’s wholly original and creepily imaginative Samuel Johnson Tales, The Creeps is humorous horror for anyone who enjoys fiction at its best.

It took me longer to finish than I would have liked because no one would leave me alone to read in peace. This a fantastic sequel to The Gates and The Infernals. I still can't decide if the best part of this series is the actual story, the chapter titles or the footnotes. I can't say much without ...
Nurd and Wormwood, once residing in the outskirts of Hell, now find themselves house guests in Samuel Johnson's mum's house. Nurd continues his revolutionary work as a crash test...man, and Sam has embarked on an equally dangerous stint as Lucy Highmore's boyfriend. All is not well in the Multiverse...
Criminy that was fantastic! I really loved it, the story, the characters, the tone. SO funny and so very very FUN! I still wish I'd started at the beginning of the trilogy, but once I started this book I couldn't (wouldn't) stop.I must needs seek out other (all) books by John Connolly. I love his st...
