Kirkus has posted a review of my forthcoming middle-grade Halloween novel The Mask Shop of Doctor Blaack, out in early October from Hex Publishers, calling it “A light, enjoyable horror story, with just the right amount of creepiness for younger readers.” They go on to say: “Rasnic Tem’s (Ubo, 2017, etc.) horror tale, with shades of R.L. Stine’s The Haunted Mask, is an equal blend of fun and spine-tingling episodes.” See the entire review at: https://www.kirkusreviews.com/book-reviews/steve-rasnic-tem/the-mask-shop-of-doctor-blaack/
Steve Rasnic Tem's short fiction has been compared to the work of Franz Kafka, Dino Buzzati, Ray Bradbury, and Raymond Carver, but to quote Joe R. Lansdale: "Steve Rasnic Tem is a school of writing unto himself." His 470 plus published stories, sixteen collections, and eight novels have garnered him the British Fantasy Award, the World Fantasy Award, two International Horror Guild Awards, and four Bram Stoker Awards.
