This is a fascinating and horrifying author meltdown about the possibility of a bad review. Holy don’t do this, Batman. What really killed me was this. I’ll bet libraries also often put Klein next to King...


The glowing reviews do indeed exist, but uh, they're like kids' book reports. Worth a google.

I dunno what to think. If you paid for a good review, I assume you'd get something more competently written, to put it rudely. But uh, it's funny how his totally unremarkable job has as much importance in this bio and the one on Amazon. His biblography goes to a dead link.


"So allow me to give you a few hints right now about Hell's Shadows - this isn't a ghost story.  heh heh heh  And did I mention the novel's undercurrent lovestory?
