Christopher Golden has written lotsa, lotsa stuff, spanning most entertainment media. The Ferryman was published sometime between his novelizations of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Justice League of America: Exterminators. It is a contextual throwback to the crescendo style of building suspense through mysterious and baffling experiences and feelings, culminating into what is routinely referred to as "The Big Boss Battle". Plot predictibility is a given; however, how well the tableware is laid out does not determine the scrumptiousness of the meal. If nothing else, this rendition of a harrowing meeting with Charonthe mythological ferryman of souls from this world into the nextand its consequences, is a page-turning, satisfying Summer Read.
