As I read this book, though a fan of JMS' comics and Babylon 5, I couldn't quite get a good feel for this. It wasn't a bad book, per se, but it seemed to be lacking something.
As I read further, I really felt the problem was JMS wasn't really getting too involved with telling the story on more than a surface level. There was a void of some kind. I got the impression that the reason JMS works so well as a scriptwriter for TV or comics is because there he can work to get his character fleshed out in colarborations with actors, directors, artists, etc. Here, it's just him. There's nothing really wrong with the story or the characters, but I get the impression Demon Night would have worked much better as a script of some kind rather than a novel.
Granted, JMS originally wrote this for himself and wasn't planning on publishing it, but I felt the book lacked much of a voice of its own and felt it was a bad sign when the concluding remarks showed more of JMS' personality than the book itself.

The book takes a long time to get started. There is too much time spent on unimportant characters and the dialog is sometimes painful to read.
BUT, about halfway through everything changes. You can see the author grow as a writer taking on his first novel. The prose evolves nicely, the dialog sharpens and the characters grow dimensions. And most of all, the story takes off and never slows down.
Overall a nice enjoyable read.

I read this book by chance in high school, I had found it at a local used book store. Not expecting much I was super surprised. This book will really give you a scare, it's enthralling in a way that'll keep you reading. The imagery is spectacular, I strongly suggest giving it a read.

A first novel can be a scary thing; the first screenplay I wrote (all 98 pages of it)was pretty darn frightening. I wrote it for the same reason JMS wrote this novel--the entertainment I wanted to see hadn't been produced. "Demon Night"'s strengths include strong characters, well written prose and thoughtful observations. The plot manages to incorporate a lot of things we've seen before but in a new, fresh fashion. The pacing and prose make "Demon Night" an easy read. I will admit, though, that the pacing at the beginning was a bit of a challenge but the mystery about why and how the main characters room was demolished while he was asleep kept me focused on moving along to the next chapter.
This reprint by ibooks features a funny and entertaining new afterword by JMS in which he describes why he wrote the novel and how it came to be published. The style of the novel reminds me of Stephen King crossed with Dan Simmons, William F. Nolan and with a dash of Peter Straub thrown in. It's clear that he wrote the novel to entertain himself but also as a tribute of sorts to the contemporary horror novelist he enjoys reading.
"Demon Night" compares favorably with the best horror ficition written by Simmons, Straub and King and has a minor flaw that is characteristic of King's novels; with such a great set up and pay off, JMS doesn't quite know how to end the novel with the original band it deserves. That's o.k. as the point of the novel isn't the destination so much as the journey and sights we see along the way.

I picked this up the other day knowing I had a bit of time off around Thanksgiving, and wanting something quick and fun to read. This book did not disapoint.

It's a pretty straight forward story with enjoyable characters and a decent threat for them to overcome. It moved fast and kept me interested right up until the end. It isn't a long read -- I read it in one day -- but the length felt about right for the story.

I really found nothing to quible about, and don't agree with some of the more critical reviews on this site (although the general consensus of the reviews does seem positive.) In particular, I remember one review stating the story should have focused more on one of the side characters (the Priest,) rather than the main character Eric, and I disagree completely. I found Eric and his powers interesting, and thought the part played by the Priest in the story fit well as it was.

Anyway, this book was just about exactly what I expected it to be when I picked it up, and was exactly what it should have been. Sometimes you're in the mood for a book you have to work at, sometimes you want something that will simply entertain you. Like Joe R. Landsdale's Dead in the West, this book fits squarely in the latter.

I picked this up while browsing in a bookstore because of the author's name. My husband introduced me to Babylon 5, so I now know JMS to be a good TV writer.
What had me buy DEMON NIGHT was that two weeks after skimming the first few pages in a bookstore, I was still interested in reading it. I am glad I invested the time and money. It is a solidly satisfying horror novel -- not great, but better than many. The opening pages that hooked me describe a young man who awakes from a nightmare about seeing his parents die in a car wreck, to find his apartment trashed. Again. In the worst way yet. And now he knows that it is time to go back to the small town in Maine where it all started. It's time. Something is calling him home.
I especially enjoyed the 6 page afterword in which JMS talks about how DEMON NIGHT came to be written and published. He wrote it for himself, because he could not find the novel he wanted to read. Any aspiring writer will find the afterword interesting and perhaps useful, and any JMS fan will likely be fascinated. It is funny, chatty and leaves you with a sense of having gotten to speak with JMS about how he did it.
It's not a great novel, but it's a very good one. I recommend it!
