All month long in October, we will post reviews of books with spooky themes, whether outright horror or just uncanny.
After attending the execution of the man who killed his brother when they were children, Jay stops in his hometown to visit his mother and his memories of the night Charlie died. The book is a novelette, but it packs quite a lot into that short space. Without giving too much away, the horror of this book lies in multiple places. The fact that parts of the story made their way into my dreams after I finished the book is probably the best compliment I can give it. The story sticks with you and if you’re interested in a delicious slice of horror, then you couldn’t do much better than Dead Trees Give no Shelter.
