    Spooky

    Abesteron House is a beautifully written short story of a grandfather and grandaughter . I love it. You need to be a bit smarter than the average horror reader to " get " this, otherwise, you will not see the beauty. True horror is written as this. Like this. It's not about blood and gore. That is called noir. Not horror. This is true horror. Thanks

    .

    confusing only to someone that doesn't understand religious symbolism. think of it as a series of spiritually oriented vignettes.

    .

    Utterly confusing. I did not, in the least bit, care for this book. Writing is too midevil and the story line serves no purpose and is pointless. Don't waste your time.
