Hat tip to [personal profile] joysilence for putting me onto Sarban.

I have just finished The Sound of His Horn and enjoyed it very much. Without giving anything away, it is about the war time adventures of a British soldier who escaped from a POW camp in Germany. It does, of course, have a few weird twists, and is about terror/horror, or I wouldn't be mentioning it in this community.

Spoilers? )

I've read Sarban's The Doll Maker already (another good book) and have his collection Ringstones lined up to read.

I must get onto reading some of my Aickman and Ligotti stories.

“The Doll Maker” by Sarban. (Ballentine Books) Paperback

A big thank you to [personal profile] joysilence for bringing this author to my attention. “The Doll Maker” is his second novel (the first being, “The Sound of his Horn”) and was written in 1953.

I want to note my feelings on the book but feel I can’t do so without giving clues about the story, hence I am putting the comments behind an lj-cut SPOILER WARNING.

Sarban’s books are difficult to get with a few available on ebay and a number recently re-published by Tartarus Press.
