Whoops, already answered. Bad me.

So as not to waste a whole post on self-chastisement, I'll add that GRIMHAVEN is possibly the best thing he wrote. I've never read anything so harrowing and yet so casually told. Don't take this the wrong way, but it reminded me a lot of AMERICAN PSYCHO. Think about it.

(Don't ask me how I read it, though. I think I read it in a dream or something.)
