aliens; alternate realitytime manipulation; and finally psycho killer with or without government conspiracy Each of these premises have two subcategories There's a dog usually a super intelligent one in most of them andor the love interestmain character will be a blonde woman Most of these stories happen in Southern California so that Koontz can describe bougainvillea one of eleventy billion different ways Night Chills takes place in Maine but Koontz still managed to throw in a description of bougainvillea Now that's talent If you can find a book Koontz has written without one of the things I've listed I will send you a 10 Gift card One gift card per book Only one winner per book You have my word No joke This is a serious offerNow I know what you're saying Four premises with two subcategories is than ten books The math adds up to 12 different possible stories Well yes and no I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt because of overlap There is plenty of overlap in Koontz's catalog Take for instance the ending of Brother Odd wherein Koontz uses three of those premises in one idea The reason I have settled on the pleasingly even number of ten is due to the fact that I can point out ten distinct Koontz novels that have been reused at the very least threes times in the man's career All this because Koontz believes in the standup comedy approach of novel writing He might tell the same jokes every single night but he knows there will always be someone new in the audience The problem comes when you've traveled on tour with Koontz for the past thirty years and you've heard all these jokes thousands of times Dean Koontz is the Paula Poundstone of the author world Yes Paula still has her fans but mostly they're newcomers to her tried tested and perfected schtick Jesus humped Mary through the Gardens of Gethsemane I digressed My apologies If you're still with me I promise I'm getting to the point While I remember very clearly the first 200 pages of Night Chills I thought this book ended differently because Koontz has reused this idea at least four times I have yet to find the book I was looking for and I'm tired of hunting I'll reread all these BlackNeon books slowly over the course of the next few years and if I find it fucking tremendous If not oh well More than likely I rewrote this book in my head because the ending is rather lackluster considering the build up Koontz had such an awesome premise to work with and it all fizzled out into your typical thriller ending Which leaves me to wonder How much of this man's work did I ever truly enjoy It's a scary thought thinking I've built up a fabricated fandom based on my own mental rewrites of how I believe things should've been The only consolation I have is that there are thousands of Koontz fans out there who remember his heyday who truly adored his BlackNeon era Either way I will reread and review each book as I read them Maybe by the end I will have my answer In summation This is a truly middle ground Koontz book It has everything we love and everything we hate about Koontz Oh and loads of rape scenes which I could have done without He definitely went full on Laymon with this one Considering they were good friends Dick probably read Dean's rough draft and said You know what this needs More rape Like a perverted Christopher Walken asking for cowbell Seriously There's a lot of rape A lotFinal Judgment That one uncle everyone keeps the kids away from

Night ChillsEst desires of the soulDesigned by top scientists and unleashed in a monstrous conspiracy night chills are seizing th It's been a while since I read this I'm pretty sure I was still in high school but I do recall even then that it was crap Granted it was highly readable and entertaining crap but crap nonetheless I remember thinking as I read it Koontz is pretty much projecting every sick sexually perverted male fantasy he's ever had into this story and passing it off as entertainment The story I think had something to do with some kind of government project that turns the inhabitants of a small town into submissive sex slaves The subseuent orgy and rape a thon could best be described as tasteless which this novel pretty much wasDirector George Romero did this much better and much creepier in a film called The Crazies It was made into a less than superb remake several years ago starring Timothy Oliphant
