About the Author:

Simon Clark, described as ""one of the most exciting British horror writers around,"" is the author of numerous novels, including The Fall, Darker and Blood Crazy. He was awarded the British Fantasy Award for his short story ""Goblin City Lights"" and for his novel Night of the Triffids, which continued where John Wyndham's original novel left off.

From Booklist:

*Starred Review* The first reaction of some readers upon finishing the first several pages of this novel might be: “Hey, didn’t The Twilight Zone already do this story?” It’s true, there are similarities between Clark’s story of a little boy with a terrifying mental power and “It’s a Good Life,” the famous Twilight Zone episode based on a Jerome Bixby short story about a little boy with a terrifying mental power. But the similarities between the two are only thematic. In execution, the two tales are very different. Clark, author of such stellar horror thrillers as London under Midnight (2006) and Lucifer’s Ark (2008), proves again that he has a real knack for working unique variations on time-tested themes. His little boy is the sole survivor of a shipwreck, now living in an orphan asylum, and he’s the sweetest boy you could ever want to meet—until his eyes glaze over, and he begins to repeat your name. Then it’s time to take cover. But is the boy evil himself, or is he merely the innocent vessel of a much greater, darker evil? Clark will tell you, but in his own good time, and only after the knot in the pit of your stomach is the size of a boulder. Another clever, original, and beguiling thriller from this very talented storyteller. --David Pitt
