Review:

“Simmons writes like a hot-rodding angel, loading his American nightmare with scares, suspense, and a sweet, surprising nostalgia. One of those rare must-read books, I am in awe of Dan Simmons.” ―Stephen King

“It stands with the best of King and Straub in the traditional modern horror genre.” ―Seattle Post Intelligencer

“Impressive...combines beautiful writing and suspense into a book for which Dan Simmons deserves the bestseller status of King and Koontz.” ―Denver Post

“An outstandingly eerie and truly horrifying tale, a page-turner of the first order.” ―Dallas Times-Herald

“One can only wonder what Simmons will do next, now that he's shown us he can do everything the best writers in horror and science fiction can do.” ―Philadelphia Inquirer

“If you like Stephen King's It and The Body, you will be enthralled by Summer of Night.” ―Rocky Mountain News

“Blood-freezing scenarios... the true source of Simmons' terrifying vision lies in his uncanny ability to tap into that primal dread that every child knows and every adult denies; the monster under the bed, the darkness in the closet, the not-quite-human face at the window... If you are easily frightened, don't buy this book.” ―Los Angeles Daily News

“A superior read in the genre.” ―Kirkus Reviews

“An outstandingly eerie horror story about a group of Midwestern boys stalked by an ancient evil.” ―Publishers Weekly

“Simmons, winner of several prestigious awards for science fiction and horror ranks with the best the genre has to offer... The children are well drawn and affecting in their bravery.” ―Library Journal

“Skilled writer par excellence Dan Simmons takes a subject straight from Stephen King land and runs with it... Simmons keeps the tension high.” ―Locus

“One of the best supernatural chillers in years... Summer of Night promises to mark the dawn of a great horror novelist.” ―Flint Journal

“Lots of frights in the ‘Night'... The kind of story that has readers locking doors and checking under their own beds even as the characters in the book go through their own nightly ritual.” ―Ocala Star-Banner

“For those of us to whom good writing is everything, the name Dan Simmons bears great weight.” ―Harlan Ellison

“Simmons is not only good, he's versatile.” ―Isaac Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine

“A compelling writer.” ―F. Paul Wilson, author of The Keep
