Growing Things and Other Stories by Paul Tremblay

Growing Things and Other Stories by Paul Tremblay: Growing Things and Other Stories by Paul Tremblay is all about the dark aspects of the modern world. Human beings have always been curious about death and the world after the death. The ghosts and spirits are the part of human myth and has always inspired the people to great extent. It is believed through out the world that some kinds of ghosts and spirits are present all around us. These creations are the cause of much disturbance and the world literature is full of the stories of the ghosts and spirits where they chase the human beings to fear and awe and ultimately death with their strange features, averted limbs and the power of disappearing. Growing Things and Other Stories by Paul Tremblay is one of such novel that tells the horrible story of the dead who has been raised to life with the help of strange magic.

Growing Things is an amazing insight into Paul Tremblay’s extraordinarily creative mind. It is a great anthology including nineteen works of short fiction. A girl is forced to see a terrible film that will haunt and afflict her and her friends’ life in “The Teacher,” a Bram Stoker Award contender for best short story. In “The Getaway,” four guys heist a pawn store with guns drawn, only to vanish one by one as they race away from the crime scene.A meth addict kidnaps her daughter from her estranged mother in “Swim Wants to Know If It’s as Bad as Swim Thinks,” while their community is attacked by a monstrous monster… or not.

Stories from Tremblay’s earlier novels are interspersed among these unsettling works. “Notes from the Dog Walkers,” a meta-fictional novella that deconstructs horror and publication while also functioning as a prelude to Disappearance at Devil’s Rock, may include a character from A Head Full of Ghosts. The Thirteenth Temple follows Merry, a character from A Head Full of Ghosts, who has written a tell-all memoir years after the events of the novel. And the title story, “Growing Things,” is given in its entirety here, a spooky narrative loosely shared between the sisters in A Head Full of Ghosts.

There are no words to describe horror. At its best, horror literature generates feelings of terror, revulsion, or dread, but the source of such feelings is frequently — though not always — otherworldly. The fantastical. The unfathomable. That’s what sets it apart from, instance, science fiction, fantasy, or magical realism, in which the fictional universe is built in such a manner that the unusual seems absolutely rational. Prepare for the strange to occur for no apparent reason when it comes to horror, which makes it all the more terrifying.

Tremblay explores our primordial fears and darkest aspirations in stunningly unique work that leaves us unarmored, from global calamity to the monsters within our skulls.
We are pushed to confront the darkness within our own hearts and minds as he lowers the sky and pulls the earth from beneath our feet.
