A once-respected college professor and novelist, Dale Stewart has sabotaged his career and his marriage -- and now darkness is closing in on him. In the last hours of Halloween he has returned to the dying town of Elm Haven, his boyhood home, where he hopes to find peace in isolation. But moving into a long-deserted farmhouse on the far outskirts of town -- the one-time residence of a strange and brilliant friend who lost his young life in a grisly "accident" back in the terrible summer of 1960 -- is only the latest in his long succession of recent mistakes. Because Dale is not alone here. He has been followed to this house of shadows by private demons who are now twisting his reality into horrifying new forms. And a thick, blanketing early snow is starting to fall ...

Good read. Not really scary, but it did have its moments. Worth reading.

Dan Simmons can write whatever the heck he wants to write and I'd read it! This King-esque book, which is so much better than King could hope, is a gripping page-turner. While it's a sequel to an earlier novel, you don't have to read that one (I didn't) to thoroughly enjoy this one. In fact, not having read the first one gives this one an even more intense sense of mystery and otherworldliness. A classic horror novel in the vein of "It".
