I have several books by Matt Shaw on my Kindle, but there was something about this one... this cover... that made me pick it up first... and I'm so glad that I did.  It's such a great little story, and a great little teaser to the awesomeness that is THE Matt Shaw.  My first thoughts, upon finishing this, was Wow, and those thoughts didn't leave, even after the story settled in.  I find this author to be quite eloquent, even funny, in a horrifically messed up I'm-going-to-Hell-for-laughing-at-that kind of way.  It takes a lot to fully impress me, and this man has definitely done that.

About the book:
Something is wrong with Crista's children.  Her partner, Matt House, tells her it's nothing to worry about.  He says they're probably acting up because they didn't want to move into this new house.  But Crista knows her children.  She has seen them play up before at various times and this isn't like them. What they're saying, what they're doing... It's not like her children at all...
            From Matt Shaw comes a tale of demonic possession and horror.  What would you do if you suspected there were entities living within the bodies of your children?

About the author:
Matt Shaw was born, quite by accident (his mother tripped, he shot out) September 30th 1980 in Winchester hospital where he was immediately placed on the baby ward and eBay.  Some twelve years later (wandering the corridors of the hospital and playing with road kill when he was on day release), the listing closed and he remained unsold, he was booted out of the hospital to start his life as a writer and hobbit - beginning with writing screenplays and short stories for his own amusement before finally getting published when he was twenty-seven years and forty-five seconds old.
            Once Published weekly in a lad's magazine with his photography work, Matt Shaw is also a published author and cartoonist.  Has to be said, can be a bit of a flirt an definitely, without a shadow of a doubt, somewhat of a klutz.
            Favorite books: "Roald Dahl's Collection of Short Stories," Tim Burton's Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy, and anything, really, written by himself.  Because he is that good.
