The Red Tree

The Red Tree - CaitlĂ­n R. Kiernan Easily one of Caitlin R. Kiernan's best. Also, judging from what I have read of her blogs, possibly her most autobiographical.

When Sarah Crowe moves from Atlanta to a secluded farm house in New England, she finds a manuscript detailing the strange and sometimes horrifying events surrounding a large red oak tree on the property. Kiernan's mastery at playing with reality as Sarah takes her own journey into madness and the haunted woods surrounding her are top notch, showing her followers great maturity while introducing new readers to a fantastic imagination.

This book gave me the chills many differet times. Highly recommended prose from one of today's best, The Red Tree invokes the spirits of H.P. Lovecraft and Shirley Jackson. Buy this book, read it, and you'll see what I mean.
