Crooked Stick Figures by Lee Thompson

As an agent for the Child Protective Services, John McDonnell has seen his share of evil people and evil acts. But nothing has prepared him to face what’s behind the door of his most recent assignment.

Crooked Stick Figures gets into the mind of the protagonist and delves into the dark depths of his sanity. It is a haunting little affair with the perfect amount of ambiguity, leaving the reader to draw many of their own conclusions. The result is a very quick read that will stick with you long after you’ve finished.

About Pat Dreadful

Father of three. Impregnator of one. Pat lives in the backwoods of Pennsylvania where he splits his time between moonshining and moonlighting. He used to be the sole proprietor of a funky little site called Grade Z Horror but jumped at the chance to work with Meli and Colum. He was raised on King and Crichton but quickly found true salvation in the works of Ketchum and Laymon. When not selling plasma to afford those highly sought after Jeff Strand limited editions, Pat can be found sitting on his back porch with a pipe full of Perique and the sounds of summer coming through a beat up transistor radio. Simply put, he is a true ramblin’ boy of pleasure. The books that have shaped Pat’s warped lil’ ol’ mind have included Dweller by Jeff Strand, It by Stephen King, Boy’s Life by Robert McCammon, The Traveling Vampire Show by Richard Laymon and The Girl Next Door by Jack Ketchum. Pat is always on the lookout for a good coming-of-age yarn so shoot your suggestions to You can also follow his unsavory exploits over at

  1. I remember reading this a while back and enjoying it. Definitely worth a download. One of these days I’ll get around to reading Lee’s novel, too.

Say something, dammit!
