New review for “They Are Among Us”

I found a new review of “They Are Among Us” online the other day while I was out of town. I had been expecting a review (I submitted the book, after all), but didn’t know it went live.

This review comes from Jim Morazzini over at Beneath the Underground. Check out their site, their reviews, and all the good they’re doing for horror over there. My thanks to them for taking the time to read and review the book.

And now, the truth is surprises can be good or bad, so I’ll let you decide, Brownies. You can read the full review here, or just enjoy the snippets below.

“… the revelation is still effective even though you know it going into the story.”

“Indeed at times it feels like it was composed of Tarantino’s From Dusk Til Dawn leftovers.”

“Still the good outweighs the bad by a large margin here and the ending leaves room for a sequel that I wouldn’t mind reading.”


10 Life Lessons: “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” Edition

I’ll probably not hear the end of this one, but I’m going on record right here and right now saying that I enjoyed “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” the movie far more than any episode of the television show I ever watched.

In my world, Kristy Swanson > Sarah Michelle Gellar; Luke Perry > David Boreanz; Donald Sutherland > Anthony Head.

I said it. I stand by it. And I’ll do it once more, with feeling, if I have to.

06) “Guys. The environment. I’m telling you, it’s totally key. The earth is in terrible shape, we could all die, and besides, Sting’s doing it.”

05) “What’s your sitch? You’re acting like the thing from another tax bracket. It’s too weird.”

04) “My keen fashion sense.”


03) “What are we? We are man, perfected. We exist to consume.”

02) “They had this look in their eyes, totally cold, animal. I think they were young Republicans.”
