Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
With signs of summer popping up all around like crocuses, patrons will soon be looking for books to tote along on vacation. Perhaps better suited for reading aloud around the campfire than at the beach, this collection of short horror stories features established classics by writers such as Conan Doyle, Poe, and Robert Bloch, as well as modern tales by D.R. Meredith and Sharyn McCrumb. Editor Greenburg, who won the 1989 Milford Award for lifetime achievement in science fiction, is among the best short story anthologists around, having put together over 200 of them, so this is bound to be a crowd pleaser. For those who can't get enough of a good scare, more startling goings on can be found in Claire McNally's Hear the Children Calling (June. ISBN 0-7278-4153-X. $19.95) and Andrew Neiderman's Perfect Little Angels (July. ISBN 0-7278-4150-5. $17.95), both also available from Severn House.-- Michael Rog ers, ``Library Journal''
Rave Reviews
HEAR THE CHILDREN CALLING is a tension-filled tale that pits parents against seemingly unconquerable opponents. Driven by their love for the children, these individuals are determined to face skepticism and even death to find and rescue their missing offspring—children held hostage by a staggering conspiracy that requires a direct physical confrontation to be defeated. An unusual work of eerie power, HEAR THE CHILDREN CALLING is an engrossing horror/thriller that is decidedly different.

    This 350 page book reminds me of John Saul's books ( or is it Soul? I have not read him for a long time.) It is about unique kids with special abilities. But unlike Saul's books, none of these children get killed. There is some child abuse, light violence, kidnapping and murder. The murders are pretty graphic, one especially so. No cursing, sex, romance or religion. This book may have a sequal at some later date as there were some unfinished plots. The editing was pretty good. This book was rather creepy. It held my interest. The genre encompasses several spectrums. There is medical, science fiction, paranormal, murder mystery and suspense. It was very different. I think YA would really like this book, if they like horror films and novels. For ages 15 and up, because it has some gruesome, freaky parts. For both male and female readers.

    Read this book.

    Engrossing from the start. Would make a good movie I think. Scary, chilling, twisted characters, good ending.
