HE THOUGHT DEAD MEN TOLD NO TALES The murders were bad enough, but what Sheriff Dan Gillis couldn't understand were the newcomers to Potter's Bluff, and their eerie resemblance to people he had seen DEAD & BURIED. He couldn't tell Janet, because even his beautiful wife was acting strangely lately. Was he imagining things? Or was something evil preying on the sleepy town of Potter's Bluff, something as shadowy as the faceless killers who roamed the land.

I read this about the time the film was released with a middle school student at my learning center, and it was genuinely
terrifying. We both enjoyed it. But the movie failed to live up to the novelization. The details in the book and it's slower
pacing, particularly with the family that wanders into the abandoned house at night was extremely intense. A rather
original horror story, worth the read if you are a fan of the genre.

A good creepy story. Good characters and suspense slowly builds to exciting finish.

great book!

This is without a doubt the best mystery novel I have ever read. I purchased this item years ago and then lent it to someone who never returned it to me. I have been searching for another copy ever since. I am so pleased to have found it. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a great suspense filled book. You won't be disappointed.

The paper over of the book was worn out, but I think it made the book look even better. The hard cover and the rest of the book was very well kept, it looked like new. The previous owner has the annoying habit of folding the corners of the pages to mark where he would leave off, that was sort of "meh" to me. Everything else was great

Other reviews have said this novelization is better than the movie. I agree completely. I read this book in the early 80s, when I was entirely too young to be reading such books, and the opening scenes in particular are so vividly written that even now that I own the movie on DVD, I remember the scenes the way I imagined them from the book, rather than the way the movie shot them.

Potters Bluff is a nice enough place. It's a small, quiet fishing town long past its glory days, with good - if somewhat eccentric - people. This is the town Dan Gillis is sheriff of. He's a good guy, local, but went away to college and came back.

The only problem is that newcomers keep turning up dead.

Worse than that, as things begin to unravel, some of the dead newcomers aren't in their graves where they belong.

As Dan unravels the mystery, he begins to touch on the supernatural origins, his wife Janet's own involvement, and of course, the man at the center of the mystery, G. (ammera) William Dobbs, the coroner and funeral home operator, and discovers that, as bad as a town full of the walking dead are, there are even worse shocks in store for him.

Where the movie fell down with this story is where Yarbro's novelization really shines - the fleshing out of the characters that make the story go. Where the movie doesn't try to hide the identities of the townsfolk doing the killing, Yarbro can take the point of view of the outsiders who are being killed, and don't know these people. Where the movie plays up the whole idea of video verses a rather bent reality, Yarbro's treatment of that part of the story is almost vestigial, certainly not the driving visual metaphor it was in the film. Where the movie shies away from potential plot holes, Yarbro fixes them, resulting in a story that, despite a large increase in words, is tighter. Over and over she demonstrates how well she understood the script and how it worked, and yet expanded on it. Fleshed it out. Made it seem almost real.

When I had her sign my rather battered copy from all those years ago, Ms. Yarbro mentioned she wrote the novelization in less than two months. Wow. Just wow.

These words, spoken by the anonymous killers roaming the night around Potter's Bluff, a quaint sea side community, are more prophetic than one would think. Chelsea Quinn Yarbro's novelization of the screenplay by the screenwriters of Alien, Dan O' Bannon and Ronald Shussett, joins a very select few books that are actually superior to the film's they adapt into print (Orson Scott Card's The Abyss and Dennis Etchison's The Fog are two others). You can feel the damp chill of the fog as it swirls around those unfortunate souls caught in Potter's Bluff after nightfall. As the bodies stack up the town's sheriff digs deeper and deeper into the mystery, but the answer he finds may cost him his sanity. Highly recommended.
