From the back cover:
“In the dead of night, beside a fading fire deep in the cold woods, a solitary man sits on a magician’s old theatrical trunk. . . planning the hideous death of Wilson Kemp. The trunk is battered and cracked, its garish paint peeling, but its contents are very special – Wilson Kemp’s worst fear, coming back to haunt him.
Strange Magic is
a mostly solid, fast-paced and entertaining horror novel from a talented author
whose ability to streamline moments splatteriffic ooziness and bloodless
creepiness into a fun, focused read.
Magic is worth checking out from the library – perhaps worth owning, if you don’t mind its post-climax wrap up.
For those readers intrigued by one of Magic’s minor characters, Peeler, Rollo has published a story about him: “Peeler".
