About "The Cursed Man":
The Cursed Man by Keith Rommel tells the story of Alister Kunkle, a patient at Sunnyside Capable Care Mental Institution. Alister has been in seclusion for the last 25 years having no contact with the staff or the outside world. The reason for this is that anyone who communicates with Alister dies within the day, for he is the Cursed Man and Death takes a professional interest in those unlucky enough to cross his path. Believing him simply deranged, Dr Anna Lee, an up and coming young psychiatrist, has come to cure Alister. She is warned about Alister's past and is shown evidence of previous encounters made by the skeptical or unbelieving, all of whom died, sometimes horribly. Regardless of the stories Anna will not be dissuaded and is reluctantly allowed access to Alister. All assume her fate is sealed but when she returns unharmed the next day we also start to wonder about the stories. So begins an enthralling narrative told in the past and the present as Anna attempts to learn why Alister believes he is cursed, while at the same time trying to convince him the events were not real and that in fact he is merely ill and so can be cured. Is Alister truly followed by death or is he simply mentally ill? The Cursed Man is an extremely well-written suspense horror story... I enjoyed it immensely; right up until the very end I was never sure of the outcome... Great story telling in the tradition of Stephen King... -- Booklore
