    One thought on “Who Made Stevie Crye?”

    1. Who Made Stevie Crye? is perhaps one of the creepiest novels I've read in a long time. Stevie Crye is a young widow raising two children while trying to make it as a writer. Life was tough before, but when her typewriter becomes possessed, things get really out of control.There are so many bizarre elements to this amazing piece of metaficton. One is never really sure where reality ends and the work of the hijacked typewriter begins. Has the typewriter taken over her life? Is her life now just wh [...]

    2. I don’t know where I picked up the recommendation for Who Made Stevie Crye, but I’m glad I bought it.It’s about a woman, a small time columnist in Georgia who has been widowed and left to raise two small children.

Beyond the two c [...]

    3. finally got around to reading this after first discovering it on the jones and newman 100 best horror stories of all time list about ten years agoeat list, by the way led me to The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner, The King in Yellow and Other Horror Stories, and The Cellar, among others. really, really, really good list, for the most part. you can check it out here if you want:homecast/~netaylor1/jobut as for this book it's kinda stinky. which is sad, because i have a lot o [...]

    4. I gave it three stars, thought about two. Some real creepy and disturbing parts, but then the middle bogs down (it could have been 50 pages shorter). Then the ending. What can I say? Pointless and silly supernatural effects and people acting like people never would in a real situation. Stevie finally deals with her demon (Why didn't she do it sooner?) and is suddenly okay with all the weirdness that continues in her life.Bishop tried to do a Philip K. Dick thing with what is reality?, what is dr [...]

    5. If you can find this book, get it! One of my favorite comedy/horror novels! They really need to make this into an ebook so more people can read it.

    6. What an unusual and surprising book! It's listed in both the 100 best fantasy (pringle) and the 100 best horror (jones) books, and I was expecting more horror but ended up with more fantasy--and a parody of Stephen King, really--and a rich soupcon of postmodern metafiction (a la My Little Blue Dress or, more closely, the film version of Adaptation. I thought it was terrific, though not quite moving enough to push it to 5 star status. But really, really interesting, and just my cup of tea. (I was [...]

    7. Forgotten how much I'd loved thisBeing some twenty-five plus years since I read this, I found the old paperback in my garage while cleaning in preparation for a husband returning home from the hospital with leukemia. A little too close to home, I put it away. As weeks turned to months, I found it available on Kindle and guiltily read it while I listened to him in the next room. We are all so brief, so fragile. We owe it to ourselves to indulge in some meta storytelling that celebrates this while [...]

    8. I had to pick this up fir a dream symbology class this year. I was not excited to read it, and put off evem cracking it open. However, once I did start the book (about a week before finals), I was done within a week. It's a psychological mind-f*ck, that has you wondering whether Stevie is hallucinating or not. A strange, but rather interesting read for those interested in oneirology or symbolism in general.I'd never read horror before this.
