Praise for Devil's Glen
A Message from Matthew Speak
Devils Glen is a horror mash-up of various sub-genres, written by a guy who watched too many monster movies, told through multiple points of view. It makes for a tasty soup--a little bit King and a little bit Spielberg—with a hint of Donaldson and a pinch of Tolkien, for taste.
