's review

it was amazing

Two masters of the genre collaborate to produce a horror classic that also works as a modern fantasy epic. The vulnerabilities, uncertainties and joys of childhood underpin the tale of young Jack Sawyer's perilous journey across 1980s America in an effort to save his mother from a deadly magical illness, flitting back and forth between worlds and battling dark forces along the way. Infused with a relentless pace and narrative drive this is a key text in the canon of modern speculative fiction.
