"He lives in the darkness beneath the stairs, in the apartment closet to the garbage cans. He eats Cheez Doodles. He tells Jesse he has things to show her, and he creeps into her days and into her dreams.
He doesn't do anything wrong, really. He just lurks near doorways, leaving a trail of Cheez Doodles crumbs. So why does he scare Jessie? And why can't she get him out nof her head?" - blurb on the cover of the book.
This is the same George R.R.Martin of Game of Thrones and numerous other horror and science fiction books.
