Girl In The Basement is an possession story in the classic sense, with one twist. It is non denominational. When it comes to possession-themed books, William Peter Blatty wrote the ultimate, hands down, with "The Exorcist". Meaning that the usual caveat of religion does not tie into the story. In "The Girl in the Basement", Garton tackles the topic, adding his own ideas and giving the topic his own twists. It is hard to avoid mentioning the parallels between "The Girl in the Basement" and "The Exorcist". The girl who is the title character here is truly and utterly creepy and downright terrifying

Girl In The Basement is an possession story in the classic sense, with one twist. While that is one expects, Mr. Garton never does what the reader expects and that is a welcomed change. The girl who is the title character here is truly and utterly creepy and downright terrifying. Some of the classic elements of this sub genre are here, the speaking in tongues, forbidden knowledge and "unholy" power. I use that word in quotation marks because unlike some of the other great stories in this.

Ray Garton is the author of several books, including horror novels such as LIVE GIRLS (which has a movie in the works), CRUCIFAX, E4 AUTUMN, and THE FOLKS; thrillers like TRADE SECRETS and SHACKLED; and numerous short stories and novellas. He's also written a number of movie and television tie-ins for young readers. He lives with his wife, Dawn, in California.

They went down to the spacious basement. The Prestons had done a pretty good job of furnishing their rec room. Ryan played airhockey with Gary for awhile and Keith watched. The girls came down a little later and Nicole said she wanted to play the winner. It had a ping pong table, an ancient airhockey table, bumper pool, a couple pinball machines, two dartboards, and an arcade PacMan. Ryan intentionally lost the game. Nicole was fifteen, a heavyset girl with a pretty face, short blonde hair, and big blue eyes. She was a challenger, always challenging people to arm wrestling matches or games in the rec room or stare-downs.

15-year-old Ryan Kettering has spent his young life in a series of mostly abusive foster homes. But his luck has changed. Now he's in the Preston house, where he has a budding romance with fellow fosterchild Lyssa. But something strange is going on in the basement. Maddy is a slow nine-year-old girl who is kept in the basement. Sometimes she talks in a gravelly adult voice. Sometimes she seems knows things about others that she couldn't possibly know...and predicts things that always come true. And sometimes people from the government come by to spend time with Maddy down in the basement. Maybe Ryan's luck hasn't changed as much as he thinks.
This novella from Garton handles the topic of Demonic Possession in a surprisingly different and subdued manner. Coming from a man who has written sex and gore laden pulp offerings like LIVE GIRLS, RAVENOUS, and SEDUCTIONS, I was surprised that Garton tackled this with restraint, intelligence, and just the right amount of panache that illustrates the insidious machinations of the demon. Garton presents the demon here as the usual untrustworthy but semi omniscient character: lying in bed all the time but seemingly able to know your darkest secrets as well as the depths of your individual cowardice and failures. This is, of course, already a standard trope in possession horror fiction, but Garton injects a couple of surprises here which I have not encountered in film, TV, or literature.

Garton, as mentioned earlier, is surprisingly restrained when it comes to his usual splatterpunk shenanigans. This was a good decision in his part since the real horror from possession movies and literature does not work its scares in that manner: it prefers to go after your soul, which is worse than having your guts pulled out. Garton understands this and lets the demon go to work through its most dangerous weapon: its mouth.

Only downside? I wish it was longer.
Like many of Ray Garton's Stories, this one was released some time ago as a Limited Edition that included several other stories. Those, sadly are not included here, but for under 5 dollars we are treated to a classic genre story of supernatural mayhem. Worth the price? I should say so. Girl In The Basement is an possession story in the classic sense, with one twist. It is non denominational. Meaning that the usual caveat of religion does not tie into the story. While that is one expects, Mr. Garton never does what the reader expects and that is a welcomed change. The girl who is the title character here is truly and utterly creepy and downright terrifying. Some of the classic elements of this sub genre are here, the speaking in tongues, forbidden knowledge and "unholy" power. I use that word in quotation marks because unlike some of the other great stories in this genre there is no religiosity to bog down the story. You need to get a copy of this story and read it for yourself. It will keep you up at night so don't start it too late in the evening if you know what I mean. Though I have long been a fan, I had never heard of this story prior to the e book release. I am glad it was made available and you will too.
When it comes to possession-themed books, William Peter Blatty wrote the ultimate, hands down, with "The Exorcist". In "The Girl in the Basement", Garton tackles the topic, adding his own ideas and giving the topic his own twists. It is hard to avoid mentioning the parallels between "The Girl in the Basement" and "The Exorcist". But, if you are going to imitate something, why not the best?

I share some of the same thoughts as other reviews who wished this book was longer.

Not what I expected. Horror stories are hit or miss in my mind and this one hits it out of the park. The story is narrated by a young boy in foster care who wants to be a writer. One of the kids in the home never leaves her basement room and there are reasons, lots of reasons. The story moves quickly and creepily to its conclusion.
Ray Garton has done it again! This is one of the most scariest books l have ever read! And I’ve read several books by Mr. Garton, but I held my breath the whole time l was reading this one.
This story was great. No spoilers, but this book throws in the exorcist, teenagers, and the federal government. Wow, it's a ride. I really cared about the main character, and his girl....and the ending blew me away.
Those of you who liked The Exorcist will like this too.
A bit predictable at times, but still an entertaining story for those who like the horror genre. Not overly graphic like one would expect a possession book to be, but detailed enough to get your imagination going. Overall a very decent read.
