When I read Stephen King, I get the sense that everything he writes is some degree of pulp or camp fiction, like a slight detachment from his action and maybe a little fascination with the neat-o central idea. Joe R. Lansdale makes no bones about his camp and pulp, and rightly revels in them. But Jack Ketchum writes in a way that makes you feel his revulsion with the terrible things happening in his story. Anyway, here’s how he does it:

Remember my carnivorous robots? They are fueled by digesting meat, and they can ooze through crevices?


Now they’re cute and programmable, and ready for the home!
