I read a short story entitled "Wendigo's Child" when I was young, in which a boy finds an unusual Native American artifact buried at a construction site, takes it home, then faces the unexpected horror that emerges from its confines in the corner of the family basement. It turns out this story was either an excerpt or a generative seed from "Night Things," an ignoble horror novel from the 80's that does few things successfully; the excerpt clearly contains the most entertaining portion of the novel. Monteleone's attempt to elude predictability by introducing "victim characters" did little more than force the story's central characters to appear pale and underdeveloped. The ancillary characters who populate the small New Mexico town provide most of the story's flavor, but they're few and far between. Most arrive late in the novel and aren't involved enough to matter. Poorly handled plot lines, such as the blackmailer whose thread (conveniently) never materializes beyond inception, generates frayed edges throughout the story; their goal of providing varied shades of excitement turn out to be pallid and unfulfilled. Even the story's monsters; figuratively reminiscent of the creatures in the movie "Tremors"; start out as ossified, lightning-quick raptor skulls that eventually slow to become lemmings who pause in mid-air to await their shotgun blasts. I may have appreciated this novel more in its natural habitat (a.k.a. 1980) before thousands of similar novels stampeded the shelves of Walden Books and B. Dalton, but I doubt I would've appreciated it much more than I do now. ( )
