The Liar

4.18  ·  Rating details ·  11 ratings  ·  1 review
Greg Kellogg is pretty honest for a liar. He’s lived in Versailles, New Hampshire (population: yes) for his whole adult life, working as a handyman and telling little lies, the kind that mend rakes and chill beer and keep his lights on even when the power’s out. Pastor Julie is new in town, and she and Greg seem to keep bumping into each other. Greg likes it that way.

I found this in an old issue of Fantasy & Science Fiction magazine, which said the novella reads as "if Garrison Keillor wrote a Stephen King story," but I think that slights it a bit. This is a good old-fashioned ghost story. What really sells it is the narrator, who uses his skill as a consummate liar to rid a small New Hampshire town of a spirit who has a hangup about the date of November 5. A good read for Halloween or any other time you may want a fast scare in your reading. ...more
