David Nickle on The Croning

David Nickle gave The Croning a really nice quote. Thanks, David.

“Not content to merely keep the Lovecraftian tradition alive, Laird Barron shows he has the stones to switch off the life support, wheel the old monster out into the daylight, and make it scream. He brings the same ethos to the treatment of his protagonists; the horrors he inflicts on poor, doddering old Donald Miller near the end of his life-badly-lived nearly amount to elder abuse. Remind me never to become a protagonist in a Laird Barron novel. I’ll stick to reading them, fast as he can write them.”
