Overview

The Grass Monkey and Other Dark Tales (A Finn McCoy Paranormal Prequel) by Scott Langrel

Welcome to Shallow Springs, Virginia. It's not a nice place to visit, and an even worse place to live. Evil dwells in the mountains and lakes surrounding the town. Creatures more ancient than the Appalachian Mountains themselves lurk in the shadows and prey on the unsuspecting.
Consisting of three short stories and a novella, The Grass Monkey and Other Dark Tales takes the reader on a terrifying tour of Shallow Springs:

A family moves to the Springs from the city, only to discover that their new, peaceful surroundings are nothing but a deception...

A telephone lineman, out in a bitter winter storm, must fight demons--both his own, and the ones stalking him in the snowy woods...

A group of loggers set out to harass a tree-hugging environmentalist and instead find an ancient horror...

A lawyer and a farmer encounter an unspeakable evil in the 1930's...

A paranormal "handler" returns home to Shallow Springs to help a woman who is being stalked by a creature as intelligent as it is evil...

Welcome to Shallow Springs. Sit back. Stay a while. But you might want to be on your way before the sun sets.

About the Author

I was born and raised in Big Stone Gap, Virginia, a town nestled in the mountains of Appalachia. Which, by the way, is pronounced "apple-atcha", not "a-puh-lay-shua". My favorite TV shows as a kid were "Kolchak: The Night Stalker" and "Night Gallery" with Rod Serling. I was also drawn to books with larger-than-life heroes such as Doc Savage and Robert E. Howard's Solomon Kane. I was (and still am) a big X-files fan, along with Lost, Supernatural, and The Walking Dead.I prefer horror and thrillers where there is a real, supernatural villain as opposed to psychological horror, and I try to incorporate such characters into my stories.

Most of the stories were trite and only half-formed; the only thing that saved this book was the Finn McCoy story. Very short book too - 1/4 of the book is just previews of upcoming novels, so it is only about 100 pages of stories. I would definitely be interested in reading a full length Finn McCoy story, if it is more than a hundred pages or so.

Very well written and gripping story. The first paranormal investigative scenario I've read, not my usual preference in the crime/mystery genre, but I have to say that this author is a masterful storyteller and hope that Finn McCoy will be gracing my Nook again in the future. Really good! Kitt :)
