Day 30 of #31AuthorsofHalloween. Dean Koontz

We are nearing the end!!! Who better to have the second to the last day of the Halloween season, than to have Dean Koontz???

Dean Koontz has been around for years. He is known for his sci-if/horror/fantasy type stories.

Ever since 1968 with his first story Star Quest. I personally love his Frankenstein novels, it is just too bad that they are packed away at the moment. I have to say though, I never seen the movie (*gasp*)

I have to say, there cannot be one horror fan who does not have at least one book from him. And who is excited for his 2019 release? The Night Window??? I know I am.

You can follow Dean Koontz on the following sites:

Day 27 of #31AuthorsofHalloween – Vincent Bugliosi and Curt Gentry

Speaking of true stories, here is another one, and this one is pretty chilling. Helter Skelter. The book that talks about the famous killer, Charles Manson.

This one here strikes a cord. My mom, who lived in that era, still will shudder when she hears the words Helter Skelter. I have seen documentaries on the murder of Sharon Tate (Polanski’s wife), and some friends.

Helter Skelter was written by the prosecuting attorney Vincent Bugliosi from the Manson trials. We all know who Charles Manson is, the man who created The Manson Family cult of around 100 followers who did his bidding. Especially the young ladies who believed him to be Jesus. His followers were made up of young men and women who killed for him.

The whole situation changed the way others looked at the sixties. My mom loved the sixties, I wish I was around for the sixties, but when Charles Manson happened, it changed the feel. It was an unforgiven event that had happened, and wished it was prevented.
