I love horror and I love ghost stories. Ghost story this was, but not necessarily horror. A quaint little community in the south that has a not so pretty history with Galaxy Farm and its former occupants. A young couple who transplant themselves from New York City to the south and discover that things can be just as dangerous in the sticks as they are in the big city. Ghostly twins and the mad spirit of their uncle. It's all been done before. But Russell James did keep me interested in reading his book. I enjoyed, but found the ending to be just a little bit of a let down.

My only complaint with the book falls on the editor and publisher, not the author. There was an obvious character name change at some point in the story and the editor didn't pick up on it and allowed several instances of the old name to go unnoticed. Perhaps that was because of small publishing, but it should have been caught and corrected. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"Doug and Laura thought they bought Galaxy Farm, but the old house is possessing them instead. Doug and Laura Locke are New Yorkers who need a fresh start, so they move to Galaxy Farm, an old thoroughbred stable in Tennessee. There Doug finds inspiration to write his epic novel and Laura renews her love of teaching. They also rediscover the love that first drew them together. But the home has many secrets. There's a graveyard hidden at the property's edge, and tragic deaths stalked the previous owners. Doug has become entranced by the abandoned taxidermy he discovers in the attic. And Laura falls under the spell of the ghosts of twin girls she meets in the old nursery. Only a local antiques dealer senses the danger. She has gruesome premonitions of horrible events to come. She knows she must convince Laura of the threat before the dark force in the house can execute its plan. But time is short, and something seems to be very wrong with Doug."-- Provided by publisher.… (more)
