: Matt Shaw stories are only for serious horror fans. Maybe you think you're a serious horror fan because you've read all of Stephen King's novels, but you're not. Matt Shaw makes Stephen King look like C.S. Lewis. Proceed with caution.
OCTOPUS 2 by Matt Shaw begins eight months after the first novella ends. The author uses flashbacks to emphasize the madness which has increased ten-fold, since Helena's pregnancy began. Shaw then takes this story into a surprising direction.
While I prefered the first installment to this one, I'm hoping the author might write one more to follow-up with the loose end. Hopefully, Shaw will have less feelings and more action. (Max really bored the crap out of me in this one.)
