Reviews
Angela Crawford, reviewer

The storyline is fast paced and very well written. It was delightfully scary and really captured the uncertainty and magic that childhood is full of. Reminiscent of something you would have found in Creepshow or Tales From The Crypt. A really good 4 star read.

David Bernstein, author of Machines of the Dead

The Bear Who Wouldn't Leave is a scary, mind-screwing tale that sticks with you after it's over. It's the kind of tale that keeps you turning the pages because there is no good place to leave off. You want to see what's going to happen next. These are the types of stories I really dig. And I really enjoyed this one. Besides the GREAT cover (which fits perfect with the story) the book reminded me of a time of childhood, of hanging out with friends in the neighborhood and being a kid, but of course, this one is totally wicked. It's the type of story that seems one way, then another, then back again to what you originally thought, then switches again, leaving you needing to read more to get to the conclusion, which I loved. Highly Recommended!!!!

Russell R. James, author of Q Island

Every horror novella should read like this, a non-stop thrill ride that amps up the terror with each chapter.
In this story, the classic, cuddly teddy bear takes a very evil turn. JH Moncrieff does an fantastic job painting the bear’s unwilling owner Josh into a very believable corner, trapped between his mother, stepfather, and the limitations of being a child.
