Have You Read The Grass Sweeper God Yet?


November 8, 2014 – Doug Howery’s debut novel, The Grass Sweeper God, has reached #1 on Amazon.com. The 263-page fictional historical account, available in paperback and e-book versions, maintains a focus on God-ordained heterosexual identity. It follows the story of Smiley Hanlon in the 1950s Virginia coal miners town of Solitude. Smiley is different from the rest, called a “freak” by many. His life reaches bottom after being cast the lead role of Dorothy in a modified Wizard of Oz school production. Protected by his best friend Lee Moore, he is a target and the 16 year old is brutally attacked by his own father.

Cuddle Up With Wickedness

Sometimes evil looks like a fuzzy teddy bear.

Still grieving the untimely death of his dad, ten-year-old Josh Leary is reluctant to accept a well-worn stuffed teddy bear from his new stepfather. He soon learns he was right to be wary. Edgar is no ordinary toy...and he doesn’t like being rejected. When Josh banishes him to the closet, terrible things begin to happen.

Desperate to be rid of the bear, Josh engages the help of a friend. As the boys’ efforts rebound on them with horrifying results, Josh is forced to accept the truth—Edgar will always get even. 

The Bear Who Wouldn’t Leave is part of Samhain Horror’s Childhood Fears series. I think we all remember a toy that made us uneasy when we were children. Maybe it was a porcelain doll with staring eyes, or a leering clown, or even E.T. with his glowing heart.

In Josh’s case, his misgivings about Edgar are very well founded. While writing The Bear Who Wouldn’t Leave, other awesome stories of cursed toys inspired me, from The Twilight Zone’s Talking Tina to Stephen King’s gruesome death-foretelling monkey to the doll in the vault from Friday the 13th The Series.

Evil toys conjure a sense of dread in the reader because we trust toys with our children. As kids, toys are our constant companions. Sometimes they can make us feel safe, or loved. When a child is hurting, a toy is often what provides comfort.

But what happens when the toy is doing the hurting?

That’s what Josh is about to find out.
