A Haunting Masterpiece of Horror - "Keepers" Will Stay with You

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

"Keepers" by Gary A. Braunbeck is a mesmerizing tour de force in the world of horror literature. This chilling and thought-provoking tale will grip your heart and mind from the very first page and not let go until long after you've closed the book.

Braunbeck's storytelling is a testament to his mastery of the genre. He weaves a deeply atmospheric and suspenseful narrative that transcends the traditional horror clichés, offering a unique and profoundly unsettling experience. The small-town setting of Cedar Hill becomes an integral character in its own right, with the author's vivid descriptions drawing you into a world where darkness hides beneath the seemingly ordinary.

The characters in "Keepers" are beautifully drawn, each with their own complex backstories and secrets. You'll find yourself deeply invested in their struggles, their fears, and their attempts to unravel the mysteries surrounding Cedar Hill. The emotional depth Braunbeck infuses into his characters enhances the sense of dread and empathy.

What truly sets "Keepers" apart is its ability to blend supernatural horror with poignant human themes. As the narrative unfolds, it explores the nature of fear, grief, and the enduring power of stories. The sense of unease and dread lingers, making you question the boundaries between reality and the supernatural.

This is a horror novel that will not only send shivers down your spine but also leave you with a haunting sense of introspection. It's a reminder of the uncharted territories of the human psyche and the terrifying secrets hidden within the shadows.

"Keepers" is a must-read for fans of horror fiction and those who appreciate the genre's deeper, psychological aspects. Gary A. Braunbeck delivers a masterpiece that will leave you sleepless and haunted by its brilliance long after you've finished it. It's a true gem that deserves its place among the classics of horror literature.

[b:Dueling Minds|15760779|Dueling Minds|Brian James Freeman|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1342740542s/15760779.jpg|21460976] edited by [a:Brian James Freeman|3415820|Brian James Freeman|http://photo.goodreads.com/authors/1313877690p2/3415820.jpg] is a collection of horror stories all based upon the cover illustration by Alan M. Clark. The six stories in this small volume are all absolutely top-notch. All six authors saw different potentials in the illustration and all fleshed out their ideas wonderfully. It is hard for me to pick a favorite, but the story by [a:Brian Keene|52050|Brian Keene|http://photo.goodreads.com/authors/1248120869p2/52050.jpg] left me thinking about it the longest. The interior artwork by Erin S. Wells wonderfully complements each story. For horror fans, this is a collection not to be missed.… (mais)

This is the worst Cedar Hill and the worst Braunbeck book I have read so far, and I've been a big cheerleader in the past. There is virtually no plot in the 300 pages and reams of paper are wasted on backstory that anyone who has read the previous Braunbeck books would already know. On top of that there are just chapters of useless weirdness that don't point anywhere. There isn't even any payoff at the end, just some teasers about what's to come next. What is the next book going to be, the backstory of the previous book's backstory?

I wanted to like this book so much after all the other Cedar Hill books but this one just didn't do it.

If Braunbeck writes another Cedar Hill novel maybe the muse can put him back on track. Otherwise just write out a decent ending and let it go.

A five star book that only gets four stars, but more about that later.

Braunbeck tries to do [a:Harlan Ellison|7415|Harlan Ellison|https://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1377708311p2/7415.jpg] and almost gets there, but not quite. I totally disagree with his film criticism so that section of the book was somewhat tedious for me, but I respect his opinion, he's a better writer than I'll ever be. His take on horror fiction pretty much aligns with mine, although I would disagree with some of his literary criticism. He sneaks a couple of short stories in which is nice.

It is also a grim insight to Braunbeck's psyche, and he lays it out there raw for you. You will squirm at the all too true pedophile gang rape "reminiscence." He still bares not only the emotional scars but the physical ones as well, in excruciating detail. And there's a lot more than this. If you want a glimpse of a mind that is on the edge and captures that in fiction, here you are. I think it was [a:Thomas Ligotti|128466|Thomas Ligotti|https://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1371462738p2/128466.jpg] who said you had to be insane to write good horror fiction. Gary has spent some time in the Bin, literally.

Here's why it drops a star. This is a print on demand book (first edition?) that has a hard cover slapped on it. No problem so far. However, it is the worst example of reliance on digital methods of proofreading and typesetting, without a human proofreader, I have ever seen, and I've seen some pretty bad e-books. Let me list the type of errors I mean: misspelled words, missing words, reversed words in sentences ("us to" instead of "to us"), words with numbers instead of letters in them, paragraphs that begin and end in the middle of sentences, missing punctuation, stray punctuation marks, incorrect words (them for there). I would estimate that there are at least two errors per page: 520 errors. It reads like an uncorrected handwritten manuscript. It's a disgrace to the modern printed book.

I could forgive some self-published remedial hack, come to think of it no I couldn't, but Braunbeck is a respected multi-published literary horror writer. That he could let his name be associated with this is simply incredible, and that Betancourt & Company would let a book like this be sold with their name on it is a disgrace, seriously.

I turn randomly, no lie, to page 64 and we have at least four errors:

1. (physically, morally,- psychologically.
2. ...and it is a testament to Harris's ability as an actor that he manages to convey all this not in stops and starts but an a hard, prismlike (sic) beam,...
3. ...inescapable tragedy that manages to be not only affecting but highly paragraph break; new line; indent symbolic without heavy-handedness.

Four errors on one page! If you can't see them, well I feel sorry for you.

If I submitted this in college it wouldn't get three stars, it would get a Fail.
