His books like KOKO are brilliant for me. I like serial killers, although I prefer serial killers with a supernatural angle. KOKO almost gave the killer a supernatural feel to him. A sense that he was the devil.

I once tweeted Straub asking if he knew about COCO the Spanish boogeyman.

He said no.

HOUSES WITHOUT DOORS is superb btw. The vignettes at the start and end of the book had an effect on me so wild. I cannot explain how they did that.
