Fantastic debut novel for a talented writer. If you dig ghosts and ghoulies and punk rock, grab this book and devour it. Heck, get two of em. Just watch out for splinters.

Mark Kidwell's debut novel takes the tired old ghost story and turns it on its ear. Fast paced, full of gore, and fiendishly creepy-Bump is a dark little morality tale that takes no prisoners. I really enjoyed Kidwell's blood soaked, Southern Gothic world full of freaks, monsters, and humans who could be both.

And then there are all the little details that draw you into this world. Some that will make you wince, and some that might make you ill. Kidwell doesn't hold back on the bloody details.

But let's get back to the monsters. I guarantee you've never seen anything like them. Like the classic Frankenstein's monster, they are creatures of torment and rage.

If you've read the original Bump graphic novel and you dare to go deeper into Kidwell's "Ghost Story with Teeth," you won't be disappointed. There are many things left to learn as Kidwell has delved deeper into his mean little story and created something unique. A ghost story that is nothing like you imagined it would be. It's darker, mean, and unapologetically brutal.

I loved it.

I am so excited to tell you about a book I have recently been able to review. (I was given a copy of BUMP to review honestly). BUMP by Mark Kidwell. This isn't your everyday book.....it is so much more. If you like books that make your pulse race, give Mr. King's novels a run for his money in the creepy department, then BUMP is for you!

I haven't read a really good scary novel in a long time. They are kind of like a good scary movie.....promise a lot but in the end don't really deliver. This, however, is NOT the case with BUMP! The ending left me wanting more.....more....MORE!

Mark Kidwell has a knack for spinning a tale that really makes you want to check under your bed and in the closets for those things that haunt your dreams. Don't forget to take along your double-barrel shotgun and something that throws fire! This book will definitely get you all riled up!

Mark is a true artist when it comes to painting pictures with words. They say a photo is worth 1000 words but you haven't read BUMP yet! Mark's ability to draw you into the story and make you actually feel the terror is a true gift.

His characters make you love them and want them to survive (with the exception of the Dills). The way in which these characters interact and deal with each other gives you every reason to either love them or want to reach into the book and slap some nonsense into them. His character formations and backstories give you a true sense of who each character is.

The Dills give you the creeps from the beginning of the story. You just KNOW there is something fundamentally wrong with them. Sheriff Lundy, he's the guy who sets the stage for the Dills to come back and HAUNT your dreams!

I am an avid horror book fan. Stumbled across this book and decided to read it. It was an awesome read! Reeled me in from the start, and kept me there til the finish. Loved it. Will be looking for more from this author.

Disclaimer: I received an e-copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Holy s***! This book *definitely* lives up to the "extreme horror" label on its cover. The Dills are sick and twisted, the mannequins scared the hell out of me, and it just gets better (or worse, depending on how you look at it) from there. From the very start, I was completely engrossed in the story and had to tear myself away from it to work, eat, or sleep (which didn't come easily after reading at night). I would definitely recommend this story to anyone who loves an awesome horror novel, although I'd caution that you'll wind up checking all your locks, under the bed, in the closets, etc. for many nights after you finish. I'm looking forward to the film version if it ever comes to light, but I'm sure I'll make it a daylight viewing.

Thanks for the scares, Mark, and I hope you continue for many years to come! =)

What a amazingly gruesome horror! If you like ghost stories with a twist this is your type of book. "Bump" will have you crawling home to your mommies, with your blankie and thumb in your mouth. Mark Kidwell is a fantastic writer and I can't wait to see what he comes out with next.
