    1. Kelli Owen was born and raised in Wisconsin and now resides in Pennsylvania where she's written a number of novellas and a few of my favorite books, including Live Specimens, Six Days, and White Picket Prisons.Her latest effort is a novella called, The Hatch. It's a stand-alone sequel to Waiting Out Winter, a wonderfully creepy story of killer flies. In the sequel, a family of survivors is doing their best to find a safe place away from a new infestation of spiders. They are literally everywhere [...]


    2. In the direct sequel to WAITING OUT WINTER, Owen returns to the Kontis family, and friends, who flee their boarded up home besieged by the deadly flies, to find a better place to survive. But what they soon discover is worse than imagined. What really works for me in this very realistic and plausible horror novella is how believable it is, the plot and characters. How real. Owen is a master of that.The ending of this survival horror novella seemed like there could be more to the story in the fut [...]


    3. After reading Waiting Out Winter I was so invested in the characters that I bought this immediately. The story of Nick and his band of survivors continues as they face a new threat in a world devastated by an apocalyptic plague. While this is a survival story that mostly takes place in one location without many dramatic events, I was never bored. Kelli Owen makes both the threat and her characters real, which makes the entire work even scarier. I also liked that while the story could continue th [...]



    4. THE HATCH is the direct sequel to WAITING OUT WINTER and Kelli Owen totally nails this novella. WINTER ends and readers literally look around saying, "Yeah, and then what?" Owen tells us. Well, humans must battle the whole food chain. Flies, frogs, spidersAnd the family has to figure out how to survive. What I loved most about this book was the unexpected change in the middle a la Robert Heinlein. He made those sudden left turns a lot in his books. She made that turn about halfway through and to [...]


    5. The plague of virus-carrying flies that forced Nick, Jamie, and Jerry indoors for a whole winter has been replaced by a new threat from further up the food chain. Now, the spiders have taken over. Not knowing if the arachnids carry the disease, the trio and their children must once again take shelter and keep their heads together, this time with another group of survivors.The Hatch is an excellent sequel to Owen's Waiting Out Winter, and the superior work in my opinion, more fleshed-out and visc [...]


    6. Fast paced with no bullshitWell written and fast paced, this sequel to Waiting Out Winter is the first book I've read by Owen. Now I can't wait to go back and see how it began. Owen's characters are rich, fully formed persons. Her prose is terse, a commonality shared with the Brian Keene camp of writers she subscribes herself to, and that's a good thing. The style leaves much to the imagination to make you think without the burden of nonessential details. Well recommended for a good summer's rea [...]
