Comment: While I as a general rule am not a large horror
fan, this book may very well change my opinion. A fascinating
look at life in the early 60's and a brush with the supernatural.
I do not believe I will look at a corn field the same way again.
Note: There is a Book Club edition that is the same size as the
trade edition and not the smaller size commonly found.
