Gerald Dean Rice stuns readers with his new book – Ft. Myers Young Adult Fiction | Examiner.com
Where the Monsters Are by Gerald Dean Rice is among the most captivating novelettes one will read. The old-school vibe is simply mind-blowing and will bring you back to your childhood of watching great shows such as “The Twilight Zone” and “Creepshow”.
There’s no denying that horror has been muddled throughout the years since it first took off. It went from classics like “Dracula” to the ever-so-popular horror comics of the 1950s, and these days it seems that the horror age has melded with the either the romantic era and/or the graphically gruesome aspect of stories.
Believe it or not, most horror does not need graphics and gruesome details to scare, disorientate, and please readers. In fact, sometimes it’s scarier when it doesn’t include all that. It’s also easier to get through the book and keeps the readers attention. It’s absolutely incredible how Rice captivates his audience in the thrills of the story while most authors in the same genre try to distract from their style through mindless and unnecessary violence and graphics.
Gerald Dean Rice has mastered this style; keeping his unique voice steady throughout the story. His characters will pop out at you, terrify you, latch onto your heart, and even give you a little something to relate to. Rice pulls at your innermost thoughts, and expertly crafts his story.
