    A sense of menace and the unraveling of the natural turns a pastoral setting into a nightmare for a young man seeking a peaceful place to study Signs of aberrancy are eerily wrapped up in strange behavior and unforseen actions This is horror that drops subtle hints before coming in for the kill.

    One of THE finest and most unsettling short stories ever written.

    I saw a fair amount of enthusiasm about this but now that I ve read it I m not sure what the fuss is about It stands in precisely the midpoint between early and contemporary cosmic horror, as much proto Langan as post Lovecraft It anticipates modern preoccupations with metafiction through characters who are scholars and authors but doesn t seem to do anything with it at all The narrative voice is accessible and less offensive than Lovecraft but not as interesting The story builds through the constant repetition of a few simple elements bugs and insecticide, cats, and interpersonal relationships closer to mild awkwardness than drama I like the way he s trying to incorporate insects and nature into the cosmic horror fabric here but the execution was dull and repetitive despite having a lot of clear opportunities to insert powerful imagery Plus, it takes a long time to build up and doesn t really go anywhere at the end There is nothing wrong with this story but I feel like I ve ...

    T.E.D Klein wrote The Events At Poroth Farm in the early seventies, and it has travelled well since then, becoming part of American Fantastic Tales Terror and the Uncanny from the 1940 s to Now Library of America , a two volume set of the best dark tales, edited by Peter Straub Straub s anthology is a terrific collection of dark tales, hitting each century, from the earliest to the present I read one a night A bit after the publication of The Events At Poroth Farm, Klein decided to expand the novella Over a five year period, he succeeded in lengthening and strengthening the creepy story about a farm in New Jersey that still did things the old way, what is considered the best and only way, maybe a righteous way, and the infidel college student who rents an outbuilding over one hot summer and faces pure evil The novella turned into the long novel titled The Ceremonies I wanted to compare the two of them since I just finished reading The Ceremonies for a second time in thirty year s time I would say that 90% of the novella has been changed, and in such wondrous fashion The novella is focused solely on the college student and the farming couple, and the animal...

    Four stars instead of five because of the unnecessary misogynistic comments and undertones that had absolutely nothing to do with the story It was really off putting.Otherwise, it was flawless I just read Mountains of Madness, which was totally dull and lacked any plot or character development at all it was literally a platform for Lovecraft to showcase his world building.Klein does Lovecraftian horror better than Lovecraft himself The Events At Po...

    Masterfully creepy horror yarn from a writer who makes up for a lack of consistency in releases with a resolute consistency in quality.

    A wondrously scary short story set in almost Stephen King country a rural, forgotten community in upstate New York where a young man goes to rent from a deeply religious Amish like couple one of the outbuildings on their farm for some pure summer reading of his carton of books The very idea seems like what I d love to do and will do, one day get away from the hurly burly of city living with a carton of books and a journal to record observations of his reading list Except that evil arrived one night, when, inspired by one of his reads Arthur Machen s The White People he climbed up a tree and made strange gestures and faces that no one could see Can t say exactly what it was I did, or why It was getting dark fireflies below me and a mist ris...
