This book is a different one. A very special sci-fi/cyberpunk story. This is the fourth of the series “Zombies Vs. Robots”, so the thread is already complex and with lots of information for the reader.
A great effort on robotics research (or knowledge) is obvious and it turns the plot into a web of controversial characters, emotions, technical concepts and delicate situations.
Survival, danger and panic move our characters, making the tension latent all along the book. Read more “BOOK REVIEW – “Emma’s Army” book 4 of the series “Zombies Vs Robots” by Joe and Marisha Cautilli”
The Girl With No Name, A short story
Horror Fiction (Dark material)
The war started when I was fifteen years old. I still remember that day, every day, for the past three years. The first death was executed on live television. Mama used to say she hated the news, that the people reporting it sometimes didn’t tell the truth. Surely, they didn’t deserve to die that way. Then again, no one did, and there’d been too many deaths since that day. But the look on the woman’s face as they’d bled her dry would forever be imprinted in my memory. It was too horrific to be a prank, everyone watching knew that.
Book Review: Bumps in the Road – A Horror Anthology
Review Written by Kerry E.B. Black
This 220 page anthology of seventeen short horror stories compiled and edited by Chad Lutzke is perfect for road trips. One of my favorites, SdroW by Suzie Lockhart and Bruce Lockhart II, followed a mother and her autistic child after an Apocalypse, but the diverse selections offer much to shiver over and think about, including interesting takes on alternate realities, homicidal truck drivers, and family vacations.
The book’s blurb explains “roads have been around for centuries, allowing mankind a convenient path to arrive at their destination… roadway treks can bring with them a lifetime of memories. But not all memories are good. And some things are best forgotten.”
Be it a hit-and-run incident or a strange roadside watcher, the stories by authors Donald J. Bingle, John Boden, Glen Damien Campbell, Pam Farley, the above mentioned Lockharts, James H. Longmore, Bekki Pate, Adam Vine, Stanley B. Webb, and Kyle Yadlosky joined Chad Lutze on his exploration down different streets and avenues. After reading “Bumps in the Road,” readers may have a changed perspective of stretches of highway and long drives.
Dragon. Golem. Behemoth. Godzilla. What is it about the idea of a giant creature smashing its way through civilization that people love so much? Perhaps we use them as a metaphor to represent our more unstoppable fears, like nuclear war. Or, maybe, it’s just fun to watch a big old beast smash stuff up.
Attack of the Kaiju: Age of Monsters is an anthology with a pretty clear theme. Featuring fifteen short stories from the contemporary masters of kaiju fiction, this collection runs the gamut, containing tales about everything from sentient Nazi killing machines to orphaned dragons throwing civilization’s peaceful co-existence out of alignment.

This is a post for the readers.
I’m a promoter, so I practically live in the entrails of the process of thinking-writing-creating-releasing-spreading a book, although I’m not a writer.
What is your job? Any answer you give me, I’m certain you need to be motivated, to have a reason, to feel others are happy with what you do. A writer puts their heart and soul into the process. To be an artist means to pour your weakest part in a public bucket where people will come, step on, taste and judge you.
