    1. One evening, while in a bad mood, Austen Bandy has a run in with an irritating liquor store clerk and does a dumb thing on the way out the door His mocking little bow to the woman sends him tripping off the curb Weeks, maybe months later, he remains in hospital suffering from frontal lobe seizures When the drugs finally get the seizures under control, he encounters for the first time the spreading silver mass that slides off the edges of mirrors or lurks in the corners of rooms, always ready to [...]

    2. Although, overall, I preferred Koja s The Cipher, this book was still a worthwhile read if you re a Koja fan It was a slow build to a pretty amazing finale, and I did feel that the wait was well worth it The characters are somewhat likable in this book than in The Cipher, but still very much drawn in shades of grey.If, like me, you ve never heard of the term duende, do yourself a favor and read the definition, at least when you re finished reading the book enpedia wiki Duende_%Understanding thi [...]

    3. I m a big fan of Cipher This was slower paced, not as focused, and Austen s weird reluctance to see a psychiatrist really frustrated me That said, the hallucinatory sequences were excellent there seemed to be of them than Cipher I never knew where the story was going, and nobody, nobody writes chaos like Kathe Koja.

    4. OK, so initially I began reading Koja s book Skin and absolutely could not finish it because of the way she writes But, I found that you have to approach Koja s writing as you would an anthology of prose If you don t like poetry, you will not like her way of writing She is very gritty but at the same time fluid I catch myself going back and reading sentences over again because I wanted to experience the feeling of it over and over.I am a huge fan of Caitlin R Kiernan and Poppy Z Brite, and was l [...]

    5. FAWK Koja does mental illness combined with supernatural elements so WELL She has such a way with words, that it envelops you within its raw element of frantic terror Her world is a completely different realm from all the other horror authors I have ever experienced Her words are like liquid fire that curl inside your brain and live there, forever on the verge of creeping back into your life and tormenting you with memories of complete terror The human brain is such a delicate thing, one must ta [...]

    6. I tried to read this second novel by Kathe Koja I just could not get through it For one, the plot is a variation on the plot of her excellent first novel, The Cipher Another reason is that it is slower than molasses sliding down a hill on a cold day I just could not tolerate the very slow unfolding of the plot I gave it two stars because KK can write very well There are some passages, some turns of phrase, some descriptive, that stand out and show that she can be an excellent writer My theory is [...]

    7. Stephen King endorsed the entire Dell Abyss Horror line Here is his blurb Thank you for introducing me to the remarkable line of novels currently being issued under Dell s Abyss imprint I have given a great many blurbs over the last twelve years or so, but this one marks two firsts first unsolicited blurb I called you and the first time I have blurbed a whole line of books In terms of quality, production, and plain old story telling reliability that s the bottom line, isn t it , Dell s new line [...]

    8. Koja s mannered prose, which sounds like that of a gifted fledgling, may put off mainstream horror readers but garner admirers among sensibilities trained on poetry, to quote T.S Eliot s introduction to Nightwood The tale flags a bit when Austen and Russell, those endearing losers, are trekking by car across the country but when Austen, a lapsed artist, starts pouring out bizarre drawings and reunites with his estranged wife, it becomes engrossing, almost a punk hybrid of Denis Johnson and Denn [...]

    9. This is probably the most disturbing book I ve read since the last Kathe Koja novel She writes like a fever dream, and finishing this incredibly wicked story felt like waking up from the most intense nightmare, sweating, heart palpitating, and filled with indescribable dread I don t know, exactly, what happened in this book, if anything at all, but it was a hell of a read.

    10. Well, I read the first half and I m not going to finish it It s actually really well written and interesting on a lot of levels but scent into madness has never been my favorite genre and I m just not up for 367 hard boiled pages of it.

    11. Although just as well written as Skin, Cipher, and Strange Angels this story didn t resonate with me.

    12. Passing decent transgressive 90s horror writing Surprised at myself that I read it all and now somehow I m reading SKIN.
