Download Epub Format è Off Season PDF by è Jack Ketchum An editor goes to a remote cabin in Maine to get away from things and work on editing her latest assignment When her boyfriend and a group of friends arrive, they think they re going to have a relaxing week Instead, they get a night of hell As part of my continuing education in horror, I decided to give Jack Ketchum a chance Off Season was one of the works suggested to me by the crew.
Off Season is a tale of feral cannibals setting upon a cabin full of city folk in the Maine woods That s pretty much the entire plot It s a combination of survival horror and gore horror, particular emphasis on the gore.
This is one brutal book, as is expected when cannibal feral hillbillies are on the prowl Shocking, bloody as hell, and not for the squeamish Seriously If you re inclined to squeam at all, you ll be squeaming all over the place People getting gutted and eaten, When Off Season, A Novel About Horror And Cannibalism In Modern Day Maine, Was First Released In , It Took Readers By Storm And Sold Over , Copies However, The original Edition Was Edited And Content Was Removed From The Story At The Publisher S Request The Whole Effect Of The Book Was Deemed Too Intense, Particularly The Ending The Overlook Connection Press Has Released The Novel In Its original Unexpurgated State For The First Time Anywhere The Author S original Vision Can Now Be read Review tomorrow I ll read the Included short, WINTERS CHILD, after I read SHE WAKES.

This may be one of the most disturbing novels I have ever read Enough said Although, I cannot agree with the previous establishment of rating this novel as violent pornography In my estimation, if horror writers took half the amount of chances in thier work as Ketchum does in his, this genre might be respected HIGHLY RECOMMENDED This recommendation must be clarified I do not condone cannibalism in any form.
Off Season A Dash of Fear From ghoulies and ghosties and long legged beasties, Good Lord, deliver us Old Scottish Prayer Some time ago a woman with an angelic face asked me if I had ever read anything by Jack Ketchum Well, I hadn t Until now Off Season is my first venture into the novels of Jack Ketchum Let s say it s a book for the reader with a taste for the different.
After a little research into the author, I was intrigued Ketchum is a four time Bram Stoker Award winner and was named Grand Master of Horror in 2009 His mentor was Robert Bloch Bloch praised and supported Ketchum s writing Their friendship began in the 1980s and continued until Bloch s death in 1994 Pretty strong credentials, Mr Ketchum.
So I, being the completeist reader, decided to start at the beginning with this nasty little tale of six Manhattanites staying in an isolated cabin on the Dead River in Ma For me, this is the horror book to end all horror books It is the apex of terror tales No book has come close to topping Off Season, and I doubt that any ever will.
In a rural area off the coast of Maine live a tribe of cannibals Over the decades travellers and townspeople have disappeared here, but these have been chalked up to the nature of an increasingly mobile, exploding population People disappear every minute all over the world, don t they The tension begins immediately and never lets up Six adults two of them sisters are vacationing in a cabin As they eat, sleep, and relax in nature, they are silently being stalked by the cannibal clan, who soon set off an unrelenting assault on the cabin Before you can say pass the A1, several have been killed, one has been roasted on a pit, and two of the women have been taken back to the cave And it s in this cave where we Jack Ketchum is an author whose works have been in my digital to read pile for ages I m loathe to admit it, but he s one of those writers synonymous with the horror genre whose work, for whatever reason, I just hadn t read yet I decided to correct that in 2018 Last week, Wednesday, Jan 24, 2018, Jack Ketchum lost his battle with cancer His passing ignited an urgent need in me to finally discover exactly what I had been missing I wanted to get to know a bit the man who so many fellow authors called either, or in some instances both, a friend and an inspiration I decided to start with Off Season, Ketchum s first novel.
Holy crap, what a first novel It s not entirely perfect the characters are a bit thin, many of them barely rising out of cardboard cutout territory prior to their victimization but it is compulsively readable and utterly engrossing.
