WE ARE ALL COMPLETELY FINE is bracing and memorable
Christopher East on his eponymous blog reviews Daryl Gregory’s We Are All Completely Fine.
Daryl Gregory has quietly become one of those writers whose output I tend to devour on sight. His latest is a quick, razor-sharp novella from Tachyon Publications, We Are All Completely Fine (2014).
After the madcap futurism of Afterparty, We Are All Completely Fine slides more into creepy, supernatural horror territory — and it’s clearly a milieu Gregory is comfortable working in. The narrative is bracing and memorable, full of realistic, sympathetic characters whose histories and fates are deftly intertwined. I loved the methodical reveal of its mystery, its sense of created family, and its secret history ambience. I could see this one making a perfect little gem of an indie horror film.
