    • The story of the The Tea Party unfolds in sections cleverly titled "The Host" and "The Guests" and "The Invitations" etc. It is basically about a very bad tract of land with a very bad history - and that land is not only affecting the locals who surround it, it is herding them all together for an event that will take place at its heart, in the abandoned mansion Winterrest. The book takes place over the course of a few tense and intense days, as very weird things begin to happen in increasing num [...]



    • After picking this up based on the great cover, I found that this may be the only horror novel set in my county. My town is even namedropped twice. The title could even be a double entendre given local politics, had it not been written 30 years ago. Aside from the "antagonist" evoking Peter Cushing, the book isn't that engaging. It takes too long to get to the tea party & the supernatural logistics are murky. Why would magic stones be vulnerable to fire?The book's least pardonable sin is its [...]


    • Grant sure did love his seasons. I think every story of his that I've read thus far start out talking about what season it is. This is useful from a setting standpoint, but then he goes on and talks about how the season is ominous and portentous. Again, that's pretty useful for a horror story, but it's interesting to note that he does this in nearly every story he writes. If he doesn't start the story with a season, he uses a sudden change in seasons as a method of signalling a change in the ton [...]


    • inside the front cover, the previous owner has scrawled "good, but dumb ending," which i totally agree with, except the "good" part.


    • The late Charles L. Grant was a puzzling author. Many of the horror genre's leading lights praised him to the hilt, but I've never been able to justify that praise from reading his books. "The Tea Party" is essentially a haunted house story, but it is so diffuse and watery that I found it impossible to keep reading. Maybe Grant's antiquated writing style is supposed to be an homage to Lovecraft, but it simply doesn't engage. I've read a few of Grant's books, and always came away thinking that ma [...]


    • well, this book was shit. what more can i say? =]- this book had so much potential, but it just ended up really crap.- nothing overly exciting happened until the end.- few unanswered questions- too much sub stories so therefore hard to follow in places.- i kept getting confused with the characters, so in place I didn't really know what was going on.- this book much have been cheap to public, sooooo many spelling errors.


    • I was just reading an old diary. And one sentence in it is " by the way. The tea party which I'm reading is boring so far and stupid. " lol! this was from 1985 and I was 17. I do not remember this book at all. But I'm going to add it to my shelf, dammit! Hahaha


    • WOW. Cool concept, and Grant does this all the timeI think the book ends and everyone's safe, but they're really not.
