Sexist and Homophobic

Lovers of “Haunting of Hill House” and “Hell House” should only read this book if they are in for a good laugh, followed by revulsion. At best the writing style is unpracticed and inept. The characters are paper-thin, too many clichés, and the plot is ultimately predictable. Also, every strait character (except for the cop) is a closet rapist. All of them make at least one reference to having their way with, if not forcing themselves, upon a female…with many of them actually making the attempt at least once. As well, the author needlessly decided to add gay bashing into the mix. The main character is a homosexual. The house makes him strait and he ultimately decides he likes it better that way, as if homosexuality was a disability that a person had to overcome in order to function in society.
If I had known about these elements, I would not have purchased this book.

Interesting entry in the genre

Jackson's "The Haunting of Hill House" was published in 1959; Richard Matheson's "Hell House" in 1971; Williamson's "Soulstorm in 1986. These three novels tackle the "prove life after death by living in a 'haunted' house" scenario. I've listened to all three recently, and they hold up surprisingly well in 2010. Soulstorm seems very much a first novel, with weaknesses that are evident, but not overwhelmingly distracting. This is a novel I'd love to ask the author to rewrite after his additional 23 years of writing and life experience. While not in the league of Jackson and Matheson's stories, and suffering from an ending that was very much in vogue for horror during the late 60s onward, Soulstorm is still an interesting entry in the genre, and worth a listen.
