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: “Blade” Edition

Blade” was one of those movies I wasn’t sure about going into it. Vampires, I love… a martial arts vampire movie, I had my doubts about.

Not that these are necessarily bad movies, but it does make one yearn for the atmosphere of Dracula or Fright Night.

But, since I love vampires, and my current novel series revolves around such an “action vampire” theme, let’s see what we can learn from Blade, Whistler, and Deacon Frost…


10) “You know, my mother used to say: A cold heart is a dead heart.”

9) “What difference does it make how their world ends? Plague… war… famine. Morality doesn’t even enter into it. We’re just a function of natural selection, man.”

8) “You better wake up. The world you live in is just a sugar-coated topping!”

7) “You have to understand, they’re everywhere. Chances are you seen ’em yourself, and didn’t know it. On the subway or in a bar.”

6) “He’s a hurricane. An act of God. Anyone caught in his path will instantly be turned. Everyone you’ve ever known… everyone you’ve ever fucking loved… it won’t matter who’s pureblood and who’s not.”

5) “You think the humans will ever accept a half-breed like you? They can’t.”

4) “Some motherfuckers are always trying to ice-skate uphill.”

3) “Christ! I’m too old for this! Somebody get me a goddamn wheelchair!”

2) “Here we are, one big happy fucking family!”

1) “You may wake up one day and find yourself extinct.”
