This book was listed as Sci-Fi/Fantasy. The story was more supernatural and monster-oriented. As my students know, when serial killers or psychopaths come up, I’m usually on to something else. Psychology students these days seem way too interested in psychopathy and serial killers. I was done after Silence of the Lambs (when the movie based on Thomas Harris’ book came out.) All the forensic work I did was with kids and adolescents and was generally basic risk assessments, but no where near the stuff on TV that inspires undergrads to want to be a “forensic psychologist”. The line between psychopathic, serial killer humans and more malevolent, supernatural sadistic monsters is debatable, but I avoid the crime/mystery/thrillers stories and am fine with the more sci-fi versions. I wasn’t initially sure how far these characters veer in that direction. However, once We Are All Completely Fine Here took off, I didn’t care. It was a lot of fun. The characters didn’t do a whole lot of storming, but they definitely ended up performing… though I do have a few questions about professional ethics and boundary issues, but maybe that comes with dealing with forces from other dimensions?
