Black House
Mass Market  Mass Market  
It may be unsettling to the earlier novel's many acolytes, but I think that BLACK HOUSE is a BETTER novel than THE TALISMAN, one that is more wholly and comfortably what it is, and some kind of dark masterpiece. On the strength of what Straub and King have accomplished here, both in terms of narrative drive and genre manipulations--after all, this is a horror novel that couldn't really exist without the fantasy-novel template that THE TALISMAN provided--I'm ready for whatever the scribbling fellows are up to next.
