The Grave - An Oxrun Station Novel (Oxrun Station Novels). Josh Miller has a talent for finding things. The Oxrun books represent a grand, wildly successful experiment in horror, as Charlie effectively explored dread and disquiet in many forms. read and reread this excellent example of Charlie’s craft as a way of holding on to him, and all the good things he represented. If enough of us do that, the strange but moving music he created will never fade away.

Charles L. Grant, PB-B @ 1981, 7/89. A tale of the supernatural. Josh finds things, but no one has asked him to find the people who go missing on their birthdays, or the accident victim that vanished without a trace from the scene. Grant was one of the finest, if not the finest, writers of modern horror. The Grave is no exception. He was so talented that he didn't have to rely on superflous sex, or gratuitious violence.

There's none of today's blood-drenched version of horror. Grant's work was atmospheric and contained characters you care about because he made them so real. Up until now, my complaint has been the weak, shallow and helpless female characters. The kind that have a conniption if they break a nail or are helpless unless a big strong male rescues them. I realize that this stereotype was common in quite a few horror novels from the late 1970s.

Charles L. Grant was one of the finest, if not the finest, writers of modern horror. He was so talented that he didn't have to rely on superflous sex, or gratuitious violence. Instead, he told a story, developed characters and made you, the reader, part of the story. The Grave is no exception. It is another Oxrun Station story, which is my all time favorite fictional place, and like all the others, it makes you care. Grant was a master story teller as well as an exceptional writer and word master. He is sorely missed, but fortunately, his wonderful stories are still in print and easily accessible. Read him. You will NOT be sorry

I enjoy the slow burn of Grant's storytelling. If you know anything of him, you know that he doesn't bludgeon you over the head with nonstop gore and action. He teases you with the horror, slowly building up into a final crescendo. I've been reading his Oxrun Station series in chronological order and The Grave is my latest in the journey. Up until now, my complaint has been the weak, shallow and helpless female characters. The kind that have a conniption if they break a nail or are helpless unless a big strong male rescues them. I realize that this stereotype was common in quite a few horror novels from the late 1970s. It still doesn't help me enjoy it. In The Grave, the female characters can stand on their own two feet and even though the male lead is kind of a dingbat, he's not so bad that he's annoying. But what has always been Grant's strength - a wonderful slow burn of a strong storyline - is miserably empty of plot. In an attempt at being murky to keep you guessing, it actually is an exercise of patience. Nothing, and I mean nothing, happened until 40% into The Grave and then the plot was muddy and incoherent at best. This continued on and on and then at the end, it felt like Grant tried to explain it all as quickly as possible so that he could bring the story to a close. Unfortunately, the explanation doesn't help or make it any more interesting. You're just kind of "meh" and closed the book.

I was unimpressed by this book. The hero's occupation of hunting down all sorts of unusual objects for his clients was interesting, but nothing much happens for many many pages, and when the mystery develops it's not that gripping. Well written, but the plot doesn't satisfy. Plus the twist at the end wasn't a surprise.

Charles L. Grant was one of the pioneers of the atmospheric horror story. His Oxrun Station novels and novellas bear this out. There's none of today's blood-drenched version of horror. Grant's work was atmospheric and contained characters you care about because he made them so real. Hopefully, this is a sign of things to come as two of Grant's early novels have finally made an appearance on Kindle this week. Seek him out and you will not be disappointed. Thank you for finally getting his novels released in Kindle versions. Keep them coming, Please!
