Using a series of real life crimes as his inspiration, West introduces us to and then allows (forces?) us to become intimate with the long gestating darkness inside one Charles Richard Beall. With his trademark descriptive passages crackling with rich detail across the page, the author chronicles the events that transpire as Beall comes to a final reckoning with his personal demons, one of whom - a charred monstrosity he knows as "The Plat-Eye " - may or may not be an actual demon.
Extremely gruesome and absolutely blood chilling, "The Devil's List" is not at all recommended for anyone who likes their horror polite and congenial. This is pure nightmare fuel, grounded in grotesque plausibility and alive with an almost tangible atmosphere of inevitable damnation.
It is also one of the best short stories I've ever read and an absolutely stunning example of how to do pure, adult horror right. Once again, Terry M. West has upped his game and the rest of us are scrambling to keep up. If you like your horror hard and real, you won't find a better read this year.
***** out of ***** . The Devil's List isn't pleasant and it will under no circumstances make you feel better when you've finished it. By the same measure, it's an energized, utterly horrific and unrelentingly gripping tale that stands as one of West's finest achievements to date and is hands down my favorite read of 2020 so far. This has my highest recommendation.
I also recommend TRANSFER, another great story by West, which is sure to mess with your mind.
