Having recently raved over Minnion's short story collection, IT'S FOR YOU, I was happy to see one of my favorites ('Up in the Boneyard') turned into a short novel. Minnion takes a classic horror set up (an ancient evil comes back to haunt the present day) and makes it work.

In 1921 and 1922, two young boys are affected by The Boneyard, a mystical realm that exists about twenty stories in the air over a certain section of Pittsburgh. Flash ahead to 1983, where a series of grisly (and strange) murd...more

I've known Kieth Minnion as a fantastic illustrator and now i know him as an amazing writing. This story is a a mystery, a series of grisly murders where the bodies have had all the bones removed with surgical precision and the only leads are a previous series of murders almost forty years earlier.

The downside: due to a combination of the ebook formatting and my old Kobo, the chapter breaks weren't clearly indicated; there were a couple of times where I missed the scene change and had to skip back a paragraph to pinpoint where it had happened.

Minnion's supernatural police procedural reminds me of the work of Graham Masterton. Minnion's characters may no be wholly original -- the emotionally unstable cop, his doting ma, his long-suffering gal, his trusted partner -- but they're lively, engaging, and they keep this story humming along. Kudos to Minnion for coming up with a truly creepy creature in the Bone Worms, one that would make Masterton proud! The Boneyard awaits!
