SOMEHOW THE EVIL IS IN THE HOTEL

The Shinning By Stephen King

Jack Torrance’s new job is the perfect chance for a fresh start for him and his son Danny, who is only five years old but in the words of old Mr Halloran he is a ‘shiner’, aglow with psychic voltage. His visions grew frighteningly out of control at the Overlook Hotel  where his father is the caretaker.

As winter closed in and blizzards cut them off, the hotel seemed to develop a life of its own. It was meant to be empty, but who was the lady in Room 217, and who were the masked guests going up and down in the elevator? And why did the hedges shaped like animals seem so alive?Somewhere, somehow there was an evil force in the hotel and that too had begun to shine.

IT’S TIME THE DEVIL HAD HIS DUE

Horns By Joe Hill

Ignatius Perrish spent the night drunk and woke up the next morning with a raging headache  and a pair of horns growing from his temples.

At first Ig thought the horns were a hallucination, the product of a mind damaged by rage and grief. He had spent the last year lonely, following the death of his beloved Merrin Williams, who was raped and murdered under inexplicable circumstances. A mental breakdown would have been the most natural thing in the world but there was nothing natural about the horns, which were all too real. Ig had enjoyed the life of the blessed, being the second son of a renowned musician and younger brother of a rising late-night TV star, and more he had Merrin. But Merrin’s death damned all that. The only suspect in the crime, Ig was never charged or tried. And he was never cleared. In the court of public opinion in Gideon, New Hampshire, Ig is and always will be guilty because his rich and connected parents pulled strings to make the investigation go away.  It seems everyone, including God, has abandoned him except the devil inside.

Now Ig is possessed of a terrible new power, a macabre talent he intends to use to find the monster who killed Merrin and destroyed his life. Being good and praying for the best got him nowhere. It’s time for a little revenge. It’s time the devil had his due.

No stranger to tragedy at thirty-two—a survivor of a fatherless childhood and a mother’s hopeless dementia, Audrey is obsessively determined to make her own way in a city that often strangles the weak. But is it something otherworldly or Audrey’s own increasing instability that’s to blame for the dark visions that haunt her and for the voice that demands that she build a door? A door it would be true madness to open…
