I can't figure out why Douglas Clegg is not a household name. In my mind he is a giant of horror fiction and deserves to be up with the likes King, McCammon, etc. In many ways I think his work is even better. From quiet to extreme, Lights Out covers all aspects of dark fiction and does it perfectly. If you aren't familiar with Douglas Clegg yet, it is time to correct your mistake. 5 stars, highly recommended.
A decent read by a talented author. He can fulfill my need for a good, creepy story in as little as 2 pages. That is an accomplishment. As with any anthology, there are hits and misses, hence the 4 stars, but the good ones Sent some chills up my spine.

Douglas Clegg delivers the perfect collection of short stories for fans of Stephen King, H.P. Lovecraft, & Clive Barker. I couldn't have had better to read in October for Halloween!
