      Billy Ray’s a Good Boy is a horror story chosen as one of the best of the year by the Willow Brook Review. It is a traditional horror story in the tradition of John Saul.

      I compare it to John Saul because it is similar to the theme of many of his books- that of a child who is mistreated and who takes revenge.

      Like in most horror stories,

      there is a supernatural element to the story.

      Billy Ray is a young boy whose father is a minister.

      His father is an extremely strict disciplinarian who believes that to “spare the rod” is to “spoil the child.

      ” Basically, the man beats his son and forces Billy Ray to live in fear of his anger.

      Billy Ray tries to act in a way that his father would approve of, but ...

      • the man is hard to please.

        While I am not sure if I would characterize the preacher as an actual child abuser, he does hit Billy Ray too much.

        Billy Ray befriends a girl his age.

        The girl has a strange fascination with blood and gore, and this often confuses and bothers Billy Ray.

        Meanwhile, a series of strange animal attacks has the small rural community on edge.

        What is

        killing the neighbors’ lifestock? When a human falls victim to the creature, things turn really scary.

        I liked this story because it drew me in, making me care about Billy Ray and it also managed to surprise me in the end.

        It was kind of short, and I would think it might have made a good beginning to a book- I wanted to know what happened to the characters after the story ended.
