…the secular nature of small-town Dutch communities and the down-to-earthness of its people. If a sane person sees a disfigured seventeenth-century witch appear in a corner of the living room, he runs for his life. If a Dutch person sees a disfigured seventeenth-century witch appear in a corner of the living room, he hangs a dishcloth over her face, sits on the couch, and reads the paper.
Ratings are a mixed bag for HEX, and I must admit, there are a few portions of the novel I didn't care for that have to do with animals (but it's brief and easily skipped). So overall (for me) one fine CREEP-FEST...and a great October read!
Welcome to Black Spring....the small town is cursed....her name is Katherine van Wyler aka The Black Rock Witch. Her history is Dark, Sad and dates back to 1664. She's a horror of a sight....reeks with the smell of death and can turn up ANYTIME....ANYWHERE.
SO....Heed the warnings....Beware the whispers and ALWAYS ALWAYS abide by the rules of the Black Spring Decree for punishments are cruel and you just might end up at Doodletown....or worse.
"Thou shalt not be afraid of the terror by night; nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness."
Great 1983 debut for Thomas Olde Heuvelt....Be sure to read through the Acknowledgment's Section. Do I have a Dutch GR friend?
