Blue November Storms book. Recommended by my friend Charlene, this book was a fun, quick novella. Animals gone berserk, and the illustrations really gave the story more of a graphic novel feel.

Everything in Blue November Storms works. Brian’s lean and vivid prose propels us through a story that surprises and moves; his characters and their relationships with one another ground this otherwise fantastic and frightening story in human experience. Everything in Blue November Storms works. The spell worked for me and my bet is that it will work for you, too.

4.5 stars!

5 friends meet up to visit the cabin in the woods they built together when they were teenagers. This brings me to the fantastic introduction to this book, written by Ray Garton. Like he says, any horror fan knows you just don't go to cabins in the woods. Quote:

If you're a horror fan, you know what's out there. There are families of inbred cannibals, practitioners of unspeakable religious rites, extraterrestrials possibly disoriented by a rough touchdown, drug-crazed psycho-killers and Bigfoot to name only a few things.

Despite all the facts that Mr. Garton laid out in his intro., the guys meet up and are very excited to be together again and they're psyched that there is also a meteor shower predicted for this very night. Unfortunately, this wasn't the usual sky art. These meteors are illuminated by a strange blue light and they continue coming down to strike the earth. What happens after that came as a surprise to me and I thought it was awesome.

I need to briefly mention the very cool illustrations throughout this novella. Sketched by Glenn Chadbourne, they added a lot to the story. His work is phenomenal.

This was a quick novella (only about 100 pages), that I read within an hour. I thought it was imaginative, creative and fast paced. I didn't think a story with this particular premise could work for me, but I was wrong, this one did. Recommended to fans of tales of this type, and fans of horror in general.

Brian James Freeman is the managing editor for one of the best horror publishers I know - Cemetery Dance Publications. They put out some absolutely beautiful special editions that I am proud to say I own a few. Check them out.

However, apparently Brian is an author as well. This was my first opportunity to read his work and I can honestly say it won't be the last time.

Brian weaves a very believable tale of friendship, outdoors, love, and sacrifice. I don't want to rehash the entire story, but the gist is that five lifelong friends come together for one last hurrah at a cabin they built many years before. A meteor storm is expected, but why occurs is not. Think this sounds a little like "Weeds" by Stephen King? You'd be wrong.

I do a lot of camping - at least a weekend a month and for an entire week in July (I'm a Scout Leader). This story struck a chord with me and made it all the more real.

I loved the entire story, but I have to say the Introduction by Ray Garton had me rolling - especially his take on camping.

This was a good story, with real characters, and a surprising conclusion. Give it a shot - you won't be sorry.

Cemetery Dance has been putting out quality horror for years and this book is no exception. There is just so much to love here.

This is my second book by Freeman. I have read "The Painted Darkness" which I consider to be a very good example of "literary" horror yet with the added emotional impact so often missing in literary horror novels. Freeman not only writes beautiful prose, about subjects as deep as the dark source of artistic inspiration, but his stories pack an emotional punch as well.

Blue November Storms is a more straight-forward, plot driven tale than The Painted Darkness but I enjoyed it for what it was. And what it was is a well written story with well drawn characters and more than one plot twist that I did not see coming.

That in itself would make this a solid 4 star effort; but this volume contains much more than that. The illustrations of Glenn Chadbourne grace this novella at the end of every chapter and add another level of enjoyment. I read this on a high resolution tab and the illustrations were beautiful. I can only imagine how good they look in one of Cemetery Dance's high quality print editions. Seriously, the artwork is so good it is like another story unto itself. Chadbourne's illustrations are so dense and interesting that I found myself spending a good deal of time at the end of every chapter exploring the illustrations, searching for the hidden pictures within the pictures. Anyone familiar with Cemetery Dance editions is familiar with Chadbourne's great work and it is on full display here. And it gets better because we not only have the artwork but an interview with Chadbourne that I thoroughly enjoyed.

Finally, anyone who has been reading horror at all is familiar with Ray Garton, who in his introduction provides both an interesting topical discussion of the elements of horror as well as hilarious memories of his negative experiences while camping as a child.

This book was fun to read, and the stellar artwork and other extras just made it that much better.

Brian James Freeman, one of the top editors of Cemetery Dance magazine, delivers a tight, fast paced novella that starts off as a story of
old friends getting together (one of which disappeared years ago ) to rendezvous at a hunting cabin they built years ago. It
begins with the assumption that it will be a run of the mill crime thriller with an expected confession at the end, but Brian Freeman takes it many steps further. A meteor shower comes down and disconnects the five friends from reality. No phone service, no ability to travel, no way to contact family members that are less than a couple of miles away. Then the animals in the woods turn on them and they are forced to fight for survival. Freeman delivers a very well written story that is very original. Look up his other works if you haven't already.

Blue November Storms is a fun novella about a group of friends gathering at a mountain cabin to get together with a lost member of the "Lightning Five" that disappeared 20 years previously. Yeah, we've heard that one before- not exactly - Brian James Freeman throws one or two curveballs at you and that is when the story really takes off running. Blue lights in the sky wreak havoc on the wildlife and the Lightning Five need to find a way to survive against incredible odds.

Solid storytelling and some really excellent illustrations by Glenn Chadbourne add to the dark atmosphere of this story. A recommended short read. 4.5 Amazon Stars
