Audible Editor Reviews

Over the past couple of decades, Douglas Clegg has made quite a name for himself in the world of horror and fantasy and his haunting audiobook, The Halloween Man, will show listeners just exactly why. Performed by the veteran William Michael Redman with a chilling grit, this mysterious tale follows the outsider Stony Crawford as he navigates a world of cults, murders, and a game of horror that is larger and far more complex than he could ever imagine. Keep a nightlight handy, and settle down for a thrilling adventure from one of the great contemporary horror writers.

Publisher's Summary

The Halloween Man walks when the screaming begins, and only Stony Crawford holds the key to the power of the chilling mystery of Stonehaven - and to the power of the unspeakable creature trapped within a summer mansion...

    I LOVE haunting, atmospheric writing that plays in your head like a movie. I adore books of a mysterious, suspenseful and creepy nature. I am a big fan of Horror/Zombie/Apocalypse and other genres which center on Mystery and strong character development.

    Story
    "Loved It!-Unique, twisted and really CREEPY!"

    This book was an instant grab immediately upon completion of Douglas Clegg's "Neverland." I was so impressed, inspired and (most importantly)-SPOOKED by his dark writing, unforgettable characters and powerful, twisted imagination that I was sure to enjoy more of his work. This lead me to "The Hallowe'en Man" a tale told in several layers through excellent narration.

    The story is told through the eyes of Stony Crawford, a man in his late 20's who, in spite of kidnapping a child at the beginning of the story, takes us into the past to re-live his teenage years. For many chapters of this thick, twisted plot I was unsure where the horror would be, how it related to the title of "Hallowe'en Man" and whether or not I would enjoy it but I was not disappointed! It is within Stony's memories that the nightmares are revealed; we learn of his first love, the blind woman in the forest, a summer mansion, hidden secrets of the town, ancient legends and eventually, of a creature...The plot also shifted many times to reveal several layers of sub-plot and different characters took turns providing a glimpse into the horror and suspense that make up this book.

    This book earns its right as a horror novel not for the typical cliches, violence or cheap thrills as other books of its genre, but Clegg delivers horror in an entirely different way. Clegg's writing offers a very GRAPHIC and often times, disturbing portrayal of evil with powerful imagery and sadistic motives. Clegg's ability to create fear by exploring the depths of evil and combine it with the unknown make him one of my most cherished authors.

    As an Audiobook, William does an impeccable job!!! He used different tones, accents and inflections for each character and brought them to life beautifully!

    I will admit however, that due to the constant 'jumping' around in the plot from one story to the next, I was confused at times and sometimes had to back-track. Aside from that, I enjoyed this book very much and I thought it was well-written, creepy and entirely unique. Douglas Clegg has impressed me so much with his capacity to scare and vivid imagination. I recommend this book and especially his book, "Neverland" if you are looking for something new and REALLY creepy.

    "Pretty good"

    But I think it could do with less soliloquy and more plot. There were times when I wanted to fast forward through the Scottish S&M guy's parts. He sure did like to hear himself talk.

    "Good story anticlimactic ending"

    I loved the story but would have liked a more surprising end. Though I do love Douglas Clegg!

    "STUPID, GRATUITOUS, DISGUSTING."

    So disappointed. My first Douglas Clegg...and LAST. Torture, sexual violence, total gratuitous violence is so overt that it totally obscures any story line. Kept trying to get thru but couldn't. Read 75% of this garbage before I gave up. Have NEVER quit that late in a book. Getting credit back.
