Good Ending

by John Clark on 3/29/2005

As my headline alludes, it has a good ending. Though Supernatural books are not in the ilk of books that I read, it is soon becoming a favorite genre of mine. Read More

Author Info
Dean Koontz
Along with Stephen King, Koontz is the preeminent horror writer of his age, selling millions and millions of books worldwide. Koontz had a horrific childhood; his father was an abusive alcoholic and his mother was mentally unstable, and they both actively discouraged him from pursuing a writing career. However, when the 12-year-old Koontz won an essay contest, the seed was planted. He studied education and was a high school English teacher from 1967 to 1969, at which point he began writing full time. At the end of the '90s, Dean Koontz has written nearly 80 books of suspense or horror.

Praise
"There's scarcely an author alive who, judging by his books, loves the English language more than Koontz; there's certainly no bestselling author of popular fiction who makes more use of figures of speech and whose sentences offer more musicality....[G]reat kudos to Koontz for creating, within the strictures of popular fiction, another notable novel of ideas and of moral imperatives."
From the Publisher
Annotation Aelfric ("Fric") Manheim, aged 10, son of a Hollywood superstar, teams up with the head of security at his father's outrageously opulent estate, an ex-detective named Ethan Truman, to outwit a horrific supernatural villain.
