's review

it was amazing

Remember Steve Emmett’s “Diavolino”? You know, the one that makes Stephen King’s most horrifying fiction seem like fairy stories; the one that, if you’re fortunate enough to be in Italy, makes you check out your surroundings twice.

If you thought that was a masterpiece of horror, take a look at his “Kid”. This may be a short story but Steve has condensed as much into it as most authors would in a complete novel. He excels at concise, no-holds-barred prose and this is horror in its rawest form. If you love to be terrified, then this is a page turner that will have you panting for more. It had my eyes out on stalks, and I’m not squeamish. A keeper.
