The Kill is Alan Peter Ryan's second novel and first horror novel, published in 1982. It is the story of Megan Todd and Jack Casey, a young couple who flee the pressures of the city to rural Deacons Kill in the Catskills. Their home becomes the target of an ancient and invisible evil that hides in the nearby deep wood. They must join with their new friends and neighbors to find and confront the monster. This is a fine example by a World Fantasy Award-winning author of a theme explored extensively by Golden Age (70s & 80s) horror writers. The prose is quick and clean and the characters finely delineated. Necon Ebooks will be publishing all of Ryana s horror fiction.
