    Great story. Opitoned for a screenplay a few years ago, but nothing ever came of it. Found a copy of the screenplay online.

    To bad nothing happened with that. You said screenplay however I could see this on a stage somewhere as well.

    I still need to get a hold of this one (the limited edition, of course) once I have the money for it. If it's as good as Undertaker's Moon then I will love it.

    It is certainly a style that is all his own. I don't think you could possibly mistake or confuse his writing with anyone else's.

    When I first saw this, I thought you were referring to L. Ron Hubbard's Fear, which I have read. Unfortunately no on Mr. Kelly's.

    The book was originally titled FEAR COUNTY, but Zebra decided to brand it with the generic FEAR (so as not to promote too "rural" a story to the book rack browsers). I considered returning the title to FEAR COUNTY for the Thunderstorm edition, but decided not to, since FEAR is what everyone knows it by.

    Incidently, I'm planning a sequel title FEAR ETERNAL sometime in next couple of years. That will be after A DARK IN BLOODY GROUND .... which is currently trapped in the memory banks of my ailing hard-drive (praying that the three-fourths of that novel hasn't been lost in the crash.)

    Hope you can retrieve the story Ron.

    About Fear Country.Leave it to a publisher to think horror fans are bumkins and the word country would cause the masses to ignore the book.Typical bull.

    Cool bit of background. I hope the next chapter did not get lost in 0 and 1 land. The title "Fear County" for the TS edition would have been cool however, like you said, it would have been confusing to people who were familar with the Zebra title.

    Just take it up to Best Buy and let the Geek Squad fetch it. They just did mine. It cost me 75.00 but it was sooooo worth it.

    For what it is worth the TS release of "Fear" is a gorgeous looking book. Take the DJ off and you have a black textured cover with a somewhat benevolent looking book title stamped into it. Very nice.

    Probably your best bet. I'd offered to do it for you but that would involve the wonderful joy of shipping back and forth which could be risky.

    I'm currently reading "Fear" right now. I've read through chapter 8. And, I like it a lot. I hope the sequel will be equally as good.
