WONDER AS I WANDER:
Shiver in the Pines
The woods will never be the same once you read SILVER JOHN stories.
Never been to the APPALACHIANS, never will I go. Not after reading this stuff.
Even LAKE TAHOE, hell, even GOLDEN GATE PARK has taken on an eerier cast as the sun begins to set.
This is THE GOODS, folks, delivered right to your doorstep.
MANLY WADE WELLMAN has created the most likeable, capable, consistent character---imagine ANDY TAYLOR of
MAYBERRY, with the wiles of ANDY GRIFFITH in "A FACE IN THE CROWD",
and you'll conjure up what I'm
I swear, you'll even TALK differently
after reading this stuff. And there are several SILVER JOHN books. I've
read them all-they are excellent.
Winter's Coming. The shadows are getting longer. The nights are long. And cold. And filled with portents... Perfect time to read "WHO FEARS THE
DEVIL", "THE OLD GODS WAKEN"-heck, any
book that contains SILVER JOHN stories!
This whole thing; the way the book is written, the characters, the settings, the FEELINGS,
will soon be gone from this land.
Cherish this while you can.
I made a vow after I read the "WHO
FEARS THE DEVIL":
To avoid THE BEHINDER, THE BAMMIT,
DESRICKS, etc. at all costs.
And to stay off YANDRO MOUNTAIN!
