Editorial Reviews

Review

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ "IT'S ALIVE creates something special here. Crystal Lake continues to prove why they're at the top with this. Highly recommended reading for anyone who feels the need to create - it should be required reading for the anyone starting out in the field. Barker's insight into the macabre art of creating is worth the price of admission."Cemetery Dance

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ "You need this book. If you're an aspiring writer, you need this book. If you're an experienced writer, you need this book. It's Alive offers something to think about no matter where you are in your career. You need this book."—Jeff Strand, author of DWELLER

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ "There are, as I'm sure you've heard, no shortcuts to becoming a writer, but if you seriously want to become a better writer with a clearer understanding of the craft, It's Alive: Bringing Nightmares to Life can help. These articles are written by working writers who know the business and who have a wealth of hints, tips, and tricks that can speed you along on the road to being the kind of writer you want to be. Anyone seriously interested in writing would be crazy not to have this book on the shelf."Ray Garton, author of Live Girls and Ravenous

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ "IT'S ALIVE is the sequel to the equally outstanding WHERE THE NIGHTMARES COME FROM, and both volumes are an essential addition to any writer's library of reference and knowledge."—Eldritch Reading Reindeer

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ "Crystal Lake Publishing has assembled an incredibly impressive array of helpful writing advice and guidance from a wide variety of some of the best and brightest writers in the horror genre."—Eva Roslin

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ "This is an astounding, invaluable collection of essays and interviews about all aspects of writing horror, from the short story to the feature-length film. I was highlighting something on every single page, and often several things per page."—Chris DiLeo
