    A brilliantly creepy collection of novellas by a writer that makes you only want to read The first story in this collection Thou Need Not Fear My Kisses reminded me of Ray Bradbury at his creepiest The second reminded of the kind of stories Stephen King used to write in the 80s about small town communities coming under threat from dark forces Night’s Swift Dragons is a intense tale about people trapped overnight in a post office while demonic bikers wait outside It’s pace is a uniue thing compared to the first two stories which are all slow builds This one speeds along to a gruesome thrilling end bring the reader to the last story in the collection The Color of Joy I found it to be too similar to the first story in collection which is about a women who finds all the men in her life being killed off one by one to get anything new out of it All four novellas are bookended by a researching writer who happens to live in the town where all these stories occur being given the four novellas to read from a local librarian Both bookends work as there own stories and I really enjoyed the way they were written Charles L Grant’s use of language and writing style are a joy to delve into

    Well written and similar enough in style that I can only hope to write that well butWhy does everything horror have to be poisoned with sexism? WHY IS THAT THE STORY THAT HAS TO BE REPEATED Women flee men because the women are so pretty that it's a curse Women destroy menor rather those unwanted excess children of single mothers do Single mothers amirite? Men eventually have to throw women away; otherwise they'll be trapped in a marriage forever Joke Your dreams died anyway Women destroy the men that pressure them so it's their fault anyway Haha so original The truly creepy part is enjoying some delicious fictional creepinessonly to run into that old tale again that the only important things about a woman are her beauty and subservience And when those things aren't used in service to a man the RIGHT man she's either killed or turned into a monster I'm tired of itI was SO hyped to read this when I started It was like a slap in the faceBut well written Yeah

    My uest to read everything about Oxrun Station the worst place to live in the US maybe the worldAnother fine outing for Mr Grant This time instead of a novel it is four longer stories set a decade apart in Oxrun Station 1940 1950 1960 1970 and each dealing with a different season of the year Each story is slightly linked to the others and there is a framing story for the whole lot There is also a little reference to other Oxrun Station goings on but it is not necessary to read any other OS novels to get in on it hereI would say the first snakes and third motorcycle gangs story were the least effective for me just because the type of menace wasn't uite up to snuff for me but 1950 and 1970 were outstanding for me I find the motorcycle gang particularly dated since most Harley riders these days have to transition to a walker once they get off the bike The other two stories were still good and all four plots were sufficiently different from each other and the other Oxrun canon that you won't get boredTypical of Grant is a gradual buildup of menace as things go along with maybe one or two dramatic events early on in the story but otherwise just a slow build of disturbing details as the story goes on Grant has strong endings and this is no exception here

    So awesome as always Moving on to The OrchardOxrun Station spookiest town on the face of the Earth where people go to vanish and never be seen ever again Grant's prose is like fine elegant liuor that tingles on the way down and burns when it hits Oxrun Station and Charles L Grant my new literary obsessions I'm almost depressed to have discovered them both this late in the games

    This is the second I've read of Grant's work and it's made me an even bigger fan Four chilling tales of uite horror that correspond with the seasons Grant's writing is the stuff nightmares are made of Every sentence is alive with character There is a reason Stephen King called him one of the premier horror writers of any generation because it's the truth You will not be disappointed by Nightmare Seasons


  6. says:

    Grant was a wizard with description but the plotting of these stories comes apart at least to modern expectations The two stories with women protagonists fall flat with their characterizations

    This was the first book I've read by Charles L Grant and I have to say that I loved it I've read elsewhere that Grant conjures up very nostalgic melancholic imagery and I found that to be true in this book particularly as each season began and he described the cold often lonely landscapeview spoilerThe basic premise in the prologue is that a man sitting in the library on a rainy spring day is given a strange book about seasons The book contains accounts of some strange events that have occurred in Oxrun Station The man is aware that the people in his book did truly die in Oxrun Station but were the events really as horrific as his book reports or have the tales been embellished? This is the device used to introduce the four short novellas Each story takes place in a separate decade and separate season within the town of Oxrun Station These are short dark stories each with a twist ending The feel is similar to that of old horror anthology shows such as Tales From the Darkside hide spoiler

    Back in the long ago world of the 1980s Charles L Grant was famous as a practitioner of what was known as uiet horror a response to splatterpunk and other grisly horrorsGrant wrote in a variety of genres and had several pen names Geoffrey Marsh Lionel Fenn Simon Lake Felecia Andrews and Deborah Lewishe wrote paperback originals hardcovers X Files novelizations And in perhaps the most well known creation Oxrun Stationa small town set in New Jersey or perhaps Connecticut where strange and odd occurrences seemed to happen Monsters? Oh yesbut not the Frankenstein monsterwerewolfvampire of old Nightmare Seasons is set in Oxrun Station beginning in Spring 1940 with each succeeding story set a decade and a season into the future ending in Winter 1970 A young woman recently returned to Oxrun Station inadvertently conjures a darkman who slays those who make her unhappya postmaster whose lonely post office is besieged by 7 faceless bikers looking to recapture one of their ownbecomes a kind of grim reaper All this and in the pages pf Nightmare SeasonsJeff McIntosh

    Horror is not always in your face blood and guts Sometimes it is something subtle; something that is felt but not really seen until it is too late Four stories are the subject of this book four stories one for each season and each one containing something hellish and evil The writing is rich with imagery but just enough is left to your imagine that your mind fills in all the blanks I had forgotten how much I enjoyed reading Charles L Grant's works and if there is a complaint about this book it is that it is too shortI was left wanting The stories are captivating you do not see what is coming until it is there; always a twist and always something that makes you want to look over your shoulder and turn on that extra light

    One of the early 80s classic collections 4 classic novellas played with a kind of sneaky pete tone starting slow but getting absolutely page turning Spooky stuff for every horror fan Read it with Time of the Season for a background soundtrack My personal favourite was the summer story
