Grimsley’s ‘Winter Birds’ is a Harrowing Work of Fiction and Prequel to ‘Comfort and Joy’

Jim Grimsley’s ‘Winter Birds.’

“Winter Birds” is perhaps the most devastating novel I have ever read. The monster Grimsley creates is more horrifying than anything Shelley or Stoker ever dreamed. The story grips you by the throat and punches you in the gut. Unlike “Comfort & Joy,” I just wanted it to be over, but was no less satisfied when I turned the last page.
