RIP Jack Ketchum

Horror sadly lost ones it's greats today. Ketchum had a way of writing stripped down, brutal and often beautiful prose. Cover was the first of his novels I read. A mix of First Blood and backwoods horror. It was to use a cliche: A page turner. Last year I read Old Flames/Right to Life. Both novellas, especially Right to Life had their share of violent moments but Right to Life had some equally touching moments involving a cat, who became one of the main characters. A talent and a man that can never be replicated.
