The Sitcom Murders 1: Sexy Sixties Suburbia is a horror novella written by Nicholas Victor. Lacy should have been enjoying a nice, quiet evening at her home in Pasadena. She was all dressed up in a sheer nightie for bed and chatting with her husband, Johnny, on the phone, when she noticed first a dark shadow and then a face peering in at her through the gap in the curtains.

Lacy wasn’t used to being on her own at home; having her husband and little son away on a business trip left her feeling somewhat lonely and more than a little bit exposed. And while she always feared that there could be something awful out there in the darkness, she never really expected something or someone to actually be there, standing on their porch, their smile and deliberate eye contact menacing and terrifying. Horrified, Lacy watched as the man began to move toward her front door! She rushed to it and slammed the door shut just as it was beginning to open. The intruder called to her in a voice that sounded raspy and malign. Johnny was so far away. What could she do?

The Sitcom Murders 1: Sexy Sixties Suburbia is a classy romp that had me casting Lucy Ricardo as the hapless Lacy Livingood whose night on her own kept on getting stranger and stranger. The plot is marvelous, both funny and surreal at the same time, as Lacy’s creator helps her adapt to a new decade and a totally different genre. Victor’s story is fast-paced and appropriately gory, and his characters are as authentic as could be expected in a tale where changes are simply written in as the plot and business demands. This well-written and decidedly different dark urban fantasy is highly recommended.
