Review by Jason Wayne Allen on Amazon.com
I first discovered DJ Tyrer's work with The Yellow House, a limited
edition chap book from Dunhams Manor Press(a weird fiction imprint of
Jordan Krall's Dynatox Ministries) and being into Chamber's Carcosa
mythos and the work of Joseph Pulver, Sr. I *had* to read it and The
Yellow House did not disappoint. There was a pervasive creepiness to the
book that channeled the gentlemen of weird fiction of day's past. The
book was haunting...and this new story, Acting Strangely conveys the
same creepy vibe.
Acting Strangely is a King in Yellow story which
springs from the premise of, someone reads the Play and goes insane.
This time a successful actor reads it, and attempts to 're-write and
direct The King in Yellow into a TV movie and the results are as
horrifying as they are revelatory.
You will notice I had the honor of
blurbing this book and I've shared a TOC with Tyrer, but don't think
this biased. With his infamous Yellow Site, creepy style, and dedication
to weird fiction, DJ Tyrer is a writer and voice to look out for. This
guy is good.
Acting Strangely is available to order on the Kindle now.
