A group of paranormal investigators decide to invent a ghost to see if it actually works. Once they bring out the ouija board everything goes wrong and it's not just their ghost they welcome in.
This had a great wee Back to the Future 'what do you do if you meet yourself?' thing going on, and despite it being really scary at points, it was quite sad too.
I went into this with high expectations, having had the novel recommended to me by another horror fan. I was unfortunately disappointed. Although the audiobook presents an adequate performance, I was not impressed with the story. I have read almost everything the genre of horror fiction has to offer, from the subtle to the grotesque, and I guess I was hoping for more. But I assume that's the problem when one reads a lot—my expectations have now been raised to the point where not just any story will satisfy me. This is not to claim any kind if horror snobbery. I like the standard Stephen King novel as much as the next guy (though I do have a problem with Dean Koontz.) I guess I was expecting something more along the lines of Thomas Ligotti. Oh well.
