This book was a total pleasure from start to finish To enhance that pleasure I read it with a group of horror lovers over at Goodreads and we had a ball Written back in the 80 s a lot of my fellow book loving friends have recommended THE ELEMENTALS to me over the last few years Problem was it was out of print and I couldn t even find 1 copy of anything he s written in the various used book stores in which I shop Then Valancourt Books came to the rescue Valancourt is dedicated to bringing back some of these out of print books and it s impossible for me to say how on board with that I am Anyway this book ROCKED A southern family vacations at their family s spit of land in southern Alabama which they call Beldame There are three houses but only two families Something is wrong with that third house and they all feel it The characters are crazy and memorable Big Barbara southern matriarch and drunk India a young girl from NYC trying to reconcile herself to a beach home in the south Her father Luker with whom she has a very strange relationship These are just a few of the fascinating characters that Mr McDowell brings alive He also brings Beldame alive with his descriptions of life on the gulf the sweltering heat the shifting dunes I felt like I was there Another thing that I and a few others reading the book with me enjoyed was the way the author would write a smooth paragraph where everything is cool and then WHAM one chilling sentence that rocked the world of the reader Over and over this techniue was employed and I loved it I truly loved it That s all I m going to say about the plot This book comes with an intro from Michael Rowe author of the most excellent book Enter Night I avoided reading the intro until I had finished the book because sometimes the intro gives a lot away There is also a small section about the author in which I discovered that Michael McDowell helped to write the screenplay for Beetlejuice That didn t surprise me because the characters in this book came alive to me just like the characters in Beetlejuice did This is a most excellent example of atmospheric literary 80 s horror and I cannot recommend it enough I originally gave this 4 stars but after thinking about it overnight I cannot think of one thing that the author could have done better So five stars it is for THE ELEMENTALS Read it

Always present in my mind is the notion that the 80s comedy Beetlejuice must get a seuel Alas a Broadway musical will suffice That film molded my nerdy self into the literophile we have today Oh what a marvelous imagination behind one of the funniest and most creative screenplays of all time then to realize that the writer of said masterpiece also wrote horror novels Horror novels of the best uality And there is plenty to admire in The Elementals a story that has accumulated dust in ways than one Inside joke We visit the terrain of those gigantic sandworms that terrified our imaginations even in Beetlejuice the animated series Lydia Deetz uintessential goth girl is revamped as imp India also a precocious teen that sees what s beyond But this is nothing nearly as terrifying as Clive Barker s also 80s brand of horror Or Stephen Kings It is absolutely inventive and even better hella funny at times
