REVIEWS

The terror she brings to the reader is on the surface almost pleasingly simplistic, but as you are ensnared in the web of her adroit storytelling you begin to be caught up in the complexities and the stories become even more chilling. It is very cool to read horror fiction that gives you something that you can work with as a reader. These stories don’t just beat you over the head with a bloody arm, instead they hold that arm out to shake your hand. Seriously, who else could write a horror story about Flash Mountain?

SCI-FI SATURDAY NIGHT

__________

I think [ghost stories and Disney Parks] is really…it’s like bacon and chocolate. It’s not necessarily the first thing you think of, but it goes together really well!

SCI-FI SATURDAY NIGHT TALKCAST #112

 

__________

 

If horror isn’t exactly my favorite genre, certainly not my area of expertise, I respect the skill it requires to craft stories that have a haunting quality—whether of light or of shadow. Schoonover can play well with shadows.

…the writing is clear as moonlight on a cloudless night, the description sharp as vampire teeth…

…this book is spooky alchemy at its finest.

FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND

__________

I read this book in a day and a half, always eager for when I could return to it…this is must-reading for adult Disney Park fans.

__________

These stories are eerie and creepy and just plain fun! I loved this book and I bet it will be great to read at a campfire inside the Disney park campground.

THE IMAGINATION CAFÉ

__________

Kristi Petersen Schoonover has written a lovely collection of stories that aren’t gory and too ridiculous to be scary, but horror stories that are part of every day life…I enjoyed propping up my feet and reading these stories that are unlike most of the stories I read!

CHEAP THERAPY

__________

I finished this book over 5 days ago, yet her dead animal story, Skeletons in the Swimmin’ Hole, is still with me. Now that’s a good storyteller!

BLESS THEIR HEARTS MOM

__________

All of the short stories held my interest and made me want to keep reading to the end. I found myself packing the book in my purse to take with me to appointments.

BARGAIN MOM

__________

All I found to be extremely compelling. I was glued. I couldn’t stop reading, I wanted to know what happened next!
