  • Great short story and very original Only reason for the loss of a star was editing Really wish the story had kept going as I was just getting into it.


  • Great Short StoryThe only reason I m giving it four stars rather than five is because of the length This is a short story Not a novella or novel Just understand this.However, with that fact dismissed, the writing is impeccable The story is AMAZING I loved it for what it was and enjoyed it very much This is my first book of Burkes and it certainly will not be my last.


  • Another solid storyBeen a fan of Burke for about three days and in that time have devoured SOUR CANDY, BLANKY and now PEEKERS If you haven t read anything by him you are missing out.


  • It was OKAfter reading how much other people liked this story, I feel like I must have missed something I was very disappointed by the ending.


  • For being only 13 pages long, this short story completely engrossed me It freaked me out They want to play with you This is meant to be made into a movie No way am I watching that


  • Super creepy and short I m not easily disturbed and there were a few pages that spooked me I can t wait to watch the short film.



  • I finished reading PEEKERS and was really impressed with the depth of character Mr Burke was able to convey in Larry Morgan in so short a piece of fiction This story was reminiscent of Invasion of the Body Snatchers and was very well done.I have always been an advocate of the less is category when it comes to horror and descriptive prose I fall into this category myself in some of my work Authors who can paint an intriguing picture yet allow the reader the freedom to let his imagination take ov [...]


  • In Peekers , Larry isn t happy about his retirement but he s trying to change his mindset However, this is challenging as he s subjected to the noises caused by the neighbourhood kids bikes As if that isn t bad enough, his neighbour Zach approaches him and asks for help as there s something weird happening in his house.Although this story was incredibly short, it was pretty good as the author didn t overplay the horror Instead, the concept of less is was executed brilliantly hence providing lit [...]


  • Peekers ist die eine Kurzgeschichte von Kealan Patrick Burke, und die einzige, es auch als deutsche bersetzung gibt Sie ist unter dem Titel H scher erschienen und entstanden aus dem Kontakt mit einem deutschsprachigen Horror Forum Es ist eine dieser Geschichten, in der das Grauen schleichend kommt und dann erst im Nachhinein seine volle Wirkung zeigt Aus der Geschichte wurde auch ein kleiner Film Den Kurzfilm Peekers kann man sich hier bei anschauen, am besten aber erst nach dem Lesen.


  • Peekers ist eine Kurzgeschichte, die es auf wenigen Seiten schafft, den Leser einen Schauer den R cken runterjagen zu lassen Zum Inhalt Larry ist Rentner und in seinem Alltag gibt es nur ein rgernis die Kinder der Nachbarn Als eines Tages sein Nachbar Zach, ganz bleich, bei ihm vorbeischaut und ihn bittet mit ihm zu kommen, ahnt er nicht welchen Alptraum er sehen wirdDenn wer w rde nicht seinen Nachbarn helfen wollen


  • Larry Morgan s mundane plans for the day are disrupted by a reclusive neighbor whose wife has apparently been replaced by a creepy, grinning doppelgangerd that s just the start of something much biggerd creepier.This short story is currently being adapted for the big screen and is slated for a 2014 movie release.4 STARS


  • Fun and creepy.This is a really short story with a great premise However, I wanted from this concept As an exercise in nameless horror and a chilling idea, Burke executed this well, but I was angry when it was over because of its abrupt conclusion that felt too forced I think it s still worth a read I got a kick out of it.


  • I thought this short story was funny and scary That s a hard combination to pull off I ve spent the last few days peeking at people around doors and corners Great and fast read, very much enjoyed this Another stellar effort from Burke.


  • Hated it which surprised me because I absolutely love this author This story I didn t find the least bit scary so I cannot figure out all these raving reviews Now his other book The Turtle Boy scarred me for life it was so scary


  • SpookyFor being such a short story, it sure was spooky Very well written My heart is still thumping against my ribcage.



  • Yes it s short and leaves you wanting , but that s a GOOD thing A fantastically creepy concept that makes me wish I thought of it first


  • Creepy funVery quick read but fun I recommend this story Also you should check out the link on the author s profile page to the video
