The Monkey’s Paw Trilogy
This book, by author Ralph Lagana, is a pretty intriguing idea. He takes Jacobs’ original story (which is included here), and then writes two companion stories to tell the history of the monkey’s paw, and look at what might’ve happened with it before coming into the hands of the White family in the original story. It’s a nice idea, and for fans of the concept, is a nice way to breathe some fresh life into Jacobs’ horror classic. Lagana did a good job of expanding the universe, and it’s a fun read for anyone who can’t get enough monkey paw action.
