“It Always Bites You In The End”
This story has the perfect level of snark and sarcasm, gruesome details, and mind-boggling mystery to make you want to keep reading until you find out what the hell is killing these people. You will have no idea how things are happening up until the climax. (Andy P.)
“When a Washington DC Metro Homicide detective started his shift on a sunny July morning, he was greeted with an unusual victim, an obvious snake bite; not something normally considered a homicide, but a tattoo on the victim sends him down a path he would never have believed. As the week progresses, an increasing number of unexplainable homicides draws Detective MacCallen ever deeper into a world of tattooed nightmares, terrors enacted in the most gruesome ways imaginable. Can Detective MacCallen stop the murders before they happen again? “Wonderfully inventive and darkly funny…with a subtle Clive Barker influence… his command of the English language is superb, creating tension and scares from simple and routine situations, the sign of a great writer.” -Stuart Keane, Author of Grin and Charlotte.”
“Within Stranger Aeons: Lovecraft’s Mythos in the 21st Century”
You will never look at rock concerts, empty bathtubs, icy ponds, or the Everglades the same way again. If the authors of these shorts have their way, you will never sleep again… (Andy P.)
“There are dimensions beyond that which is known to man. They are realms as vast as space and older than time itself. In these realms are beings beyond light and shadow, beyond good and evil, and there lie harbingers of the end of the human age. The stars are right. This is the epoch of terror & devastation. It is an age which is…Within Stranger Aeons. Featuring stories and poems by: Michael Fisher, H.P. Lovecraft, Andew Bell, Mord McGhee, Juan J.

I read this book over a weekend, and I LOVED it! I was very impressed with the pacing and the story. The characters were familiar and seemed like people I would know. The setting was great, and the author clearly has a good grasp of the DC area.
I Highly recommend it! (Evilboy)
This is by far one of the best zombie books I’ve read in a long time, well developed characters, tension and drama make this a great pick for fans of the walking dead or the zombie genre in general. (Erin A. Radford)
“When a small group of outcasts from the suburbs of Washington, DC witness the zombie apocalypse happening before their eyes, what will they do to survive and will they succeed?
A small cabin in the mountains of Virginia, once a refuge from the hectic rush of city life, may now be the only refuge for life for these self-labelled DC Freaks.
Not your mama’s Cabin in the Woods.”
