"In this clever and quirky follow-up to The Gates and The Infernals, Samuel Johnson's life seems to have finally settled dow-n-after all, he's still got the company of his faithful dachshund Boswell and his bumbling demon friend Nurd; he has foiled the dreaded forces of darkness not once but twice; and he's now dating the lovely Lucy Highmore. But things in the little English town of Biddlecombe rarely run smoothly for long. Shadows are gathering in the skies; a black heart of pure evil is bubbling with revenge; and it rather looks as if the Multiverse is about to come to an end, starting with Biddlecombe. When a new toy shop's opening goes terrifyingly awry, Samuel must gather a ragtag band of dwarfs, policemen, and very polite monsters to face down the greatest threat the Multiverse has ever known, not to mention assorted vampires, a girl with an unnatural fondness for spiders, and highly flammable unfriendly elves. The latest installment of John Connolly's wholly original and creepily imaginative Samuel Johnson Tales, The Creeps is humorous horror for anyone who enjoys fiction at its best"-- Provided by publisher.
Samuel Johnson and his faithful dachshund Boswell join with a ragtag band of dwarves, policemen, and polite monsters when the Multiverse is threatened with destruction, starting in the little English town of Biddlecombe.

It's hard to describe the genius of John Connolly but I consider him one of the finest writers of young fiction today. This book and its two predecessors, The Gate and The Infernals are so funny, so beautifully human, even the demons, that there are nuggets of new enjoyment each time you pick them up. The dwarfs have to be one of the most wickedly funny creations in literary history.
