Lonely One. by Richard Laymon (Author). Laymon tales this story of a wolf in sheep's clothing with the complete ease, leading readers through a very natural cycle. ISBN-13: 978-0822437697. Although Richard keeps Doreen's secrets swept under the rug, there's obviously a murderous streak to the woman, and while readers are well aware of it, there's no doubt that the story calls out and demands to be finished. The subtlety that Laymon leans on is great, and makes for an easy read, yet extremely engaging piece of fiction.

this is not a novel - in fact it is only 26 pages long. i made the mistake of thinking it was a full length novel. i hope i can help some other Laymon fans here.

As amazing as some of Richard Laymon's works may be, it can be said, with truthfulness, that he can be a bit predictable from time to time. Such is most definitely the case with The Lonely One, a story which inexplicably shows its full hand inside of three pages. Does that make the story any less enjoyable? Thanks heavens, no, it doesn't. The Lonely One is a creepy little tale that seizes the attention immediately, despite the fact that the final outcome is as predictable as the sun rising in the east and setting in the west.

Doreen is a lonely young lady. Attractive, isolated, and eager to stay that way, because she knows just what happens when attempting to pursue any form of romantic involvement with a man. Unfortunately for Ron, who spots Doreen alone, riding a carousel, he has no idea the secret Doreen harbors. Advances are made, warnings are issued, but Ron's a persistent fellow who's anxious to capture the affection of this mysterious woman.

It seems he's the only one who fails to spot the inevitable fate that awaits him. Readers certainly know what Doreen is the moment she informs him that by avoiding her, he'll "live longer". Damn those hormones.

Laymon tales this story of a wolf in sheep's clothing with the complete ease, leading readers through a very natural cycle. Although Richard keeps Doreen's secrets swept under the rug, there's obviously a murderous streak to the woman, and while readers are well aware of it, there's no doubt that the story calls out and demands to be finished.

The subtlety that Laymon leans on is great, and makes for an easy read, yet extremely engaging piece of fiction. I've said it before: woman can be terrifying creatures, and Laymon's creation in this specific case is no exception. There's a sadness that brims beneath Doreen's reserved surface, but there's something far darker as well, and Ron, a seemingly good guy, is about to learn that he's picked a really, really bad girl to flirt with.

I have never understood the chapbook industry. Paying a lot for a single short story just doesn't seem right. But, when I can find one used for a decent price, I might check it out.
The Lonely One is the story of Doreen. She is at the Santa Monica pier and she is lonely. On the carousel she meets a young man and tries to convince him to go away. She says that if he goes away he will live longer.
Well, such a statement merely increases curiosity and the young man refuses to be put off by the lonely beauty. The rest of the story involves a little cat and mouse as she tries to avoid him and he refuses to be left. Finally we learn the truth of her loneliness and her warning.
A nice little tale. It is a very quick read, only a few pages in regular size, but crafted so that the story moves and reaches an acceptable resolution.
I wouldn't recommend paying a lot for this one but it is worth reading.

"Just forget about me, okay? You'll live longer."
That's the response Ron gets when he tries to pick up the pretty, sad-faced girl beside him on the carousel at the Santa Monica pier. Doreen admits she is tired of doing everything alone -- living, working, eating -- but if she likes someone, he always ends up dead. When Ron refuses to be put off, Doreen flees and hides in the darkness under the pier -- where a mugger tries to knife her. Ron arrives just in time to help defeat her attacker. To him their victory is more proof that he is safe with Doreen. But Doreen's hunger rises, and Ron learns that muggers are not the only dangerous things in the darkness.
Maybe he should have known better than to stay with a woman who fights off muggers with her teeth.
If you're expecting a vampire, you won't find Doreen's idiosyncrasies nearly as surprising as Ron does. You may, however, find that her self-pity gets old a long time before the end of this very short (26 pages) book. Only adequately written, THE LONELY ONE nonetheless has enough suspense and action to make it an interesting one-time read.

A quick read from Laymon's Fastback Horror series of short stories. Not much to it and kind of cliché.
