Mike Baker, Afraid Magazine
"Realism is what makes this novel so terrifying ... the monsters ..are human, and all the more horrifying for it.
Henry W. Wagner, Cemetery Dance
" ... the thing that makes The Girl Next Door so disturbing: the fact that the reader, even though repulsed by the story, cannot look away. The Girl Next Door is definitely NOT for the faint of heart."
Edward Bryant, Locus Publications
"This is the real stuff, horror embedded in genuine literature, an uncomfortable dip into the pitch blackness in the underside of the American literary tradition."
"... the closest thing we have to an American Clive Barker... " ". . . no writer who has ever read him can help being infulenced by him, and no general reader who runs across his work can easily forget him. He has become an archetype."
Suburbia in the 1950s, a dark side emerging in the Chandler house for teenage Meg and her crippled little sister Susan --captive to an Aunt, who is rapidly descending into madness. "The Girl Next Door is alive.... in a way most works of poplular fiction never attain; it does not just promise terror but actually delievers it. But its a page-turner, all right; no doubt about that." - Stephen King
Since this novel, published for the first time in hard cover in 1996, has propelled Mr. Ketchum to a cult following. Once you read this book, youll never forget it. If you havent read Ketchum, this is the one to start with.
