Super hard to rate this. Have to go 4 stars for (possible) brilliance. However, I didn't like, and did not finish - granted this is a multi-book set, so to say I didn't finish isn't quite accurate. I finished several of the books. Some were pretty good. Memorable. "Some Other Place, The Right Place" is the one that did me in. I finished the loooooong (endless) slog through that book and said "I'm not sure if that was genius-level brilliant, or the craziest POS I've ever read." That particular ...more

I don't know why graphic sex has to be included in any book. It adds nothing g but sleaze to a story!

Donald Douglas Harington was an American author. All but the first of his novels either take place in or have an important connection to "Stay More," a fictional Ozark Mountains town based somewhat on Drakes Creek, Arkansas, where Harington spent summers as a child.

Harington was born and raised in Little Rock, Arkansas. He lost nearly all of his hearing at age 12 due to meningitis. This did not

“There is a popular saying, “More rare than pine is the smell of pining”—which is rare indeed, for there are few pine trees in this part of the Ozarks.” 1 likes
“This Man, our Man, was not even of any kinship to those ancient folk of Stay More; He was a furriner, from distant parts, an outlander, a newcomer, even if He had lived in Holy House longer than all but the oldest roosterroaches could remember. Doc Swain was one of these: he could remember, as a child, nearly two years before, watching Man move into the old Stay More Hotel, which had once been the home for human Ingledews before becoming a hotel, and had been abandoned for years before Man moved into it and installed the Fabulous Fridge and the pantry and breadbasket and grocery sack and other good things. Although the Man did not dress like the ancient Men of Stay More, or talk like Them, or practice Their customs, He was still Man, and the only Man we had. He might not be as Almighty as the Crustians thought He was, but He was the Lord.” 0 likes
