Overview

An ancient ritual within desolate October woods. A stolen child. A mysterious New England village. A terrifying legend of shadows. Who holds the key to the dark secret of Stonehaven? What unspeakable creature is trapped within one of its summer mansions?

From New York Times bestselling author Douglas Clegg comes a riveting, edge-of-your-seat supernatural thriller.

"Clegg's stories can chill the spine so effectively that the reader should keep paramedics on standby."-- Dean Koontz, NY Times bestselling author of The Husband, Odd Thomas, Velocity and many others.

*"Combining both the quiet horror of a Charles Grant with the all-out spectacles of a Stephen King, Clegg's storytelling has never been better. The Halloween Man is a brilliant novel, up there with the best of Straub, King, and Koontz, and one of the most original tales of terror to come along in quite a while." -- Edward Lee, bestselling horror novelist.

"The Halloween Man is one of the best horror novels that I’ve read in years…I had never read anything by Clegg before reading this novel, but now I’m going to go out and get the rest of his books. If you’ve never heard of Clegg either, or are a fan of horror fiction, get this book right now." - Pixel Planet

"Halloween Man is a stunning horror novel, written with a degree of conviction that is rare these days." --Fiona Webster

"Clegg gets high marks on the terror scale..."(The Daily News (New York)) --

"Douglas Clegg is one of horror's most captivating voices..." -- BookLovers

"Every bit as good as the best works of Stephen King, Peter Straub, or Dan Simmons..." -- Hellnotes: The Newsletter for the Horror Professional

"Packed with vivid imagery; a broadly-scoped but fast-paced plot; powerful, evocative writing; superb characterizations; and facile intelligence…Douglas Clegg has given horror lovers the best Halloween gift possible -- an entertaining spinetingler written with unique style..." -- DarkEcho

"Douglas Clegg has become the new star in horror fiction.." - Peter Straub, author of Ghost Story and, with Stephen King, The Talisman.

    A very good book!

    I have read several books by Clegg and have enjoyed every one of them. This is a very good book that kept me wanting to read it when I had to put it down. I was very skeptical about the book given the way it starts out in the first chapter, but the strength to this book is when Clegg goes to the flashbacks of Stony as a kid. I found that his revalations in the book were perfectly timed and he kept you wanting more of Stony as an adult. But I found the book a little predictable near the end of the story, which is the cause for the four stars and not five. The book was billed as a scary and horrorifying story on the cover by reviews, but I found myself wondering what story it was that they had read. It wasn't a scary story at all but was more of a thriller with some horror elements to it, such as the demon worshipers. I loved the book despite what people thought that it was and would recommend it to anyone.
