Editorial Reviews

Review

"It's hard to say if this singular novel, which boasts a wicked sense of humour to round off the horror, should be eligible for an Edgar Award or a Bram Stoker, or both." -- Elliot Swanson, Booklist "[Nekropolis] is an atmospheric and exciting mystery." -- SF Site "An up-and-comer who's worthy of the hype... Tim Waggoner is well on his way to being proclaimed horror fiction's leading surrealist." -- Cemetery Dance

Format: Paperback
Matt Richter is a private detective in Nekropolis, an underworld where all types of monsters walk the streets. But he is also a zombie, who continually works to keep his body from deteriorating. When a beautiful half-vampire asks his help to find a missing artifact, Richter puts himself in more danger than he has ever faced before. Plenty of people want him dead. But being already dead has its advantages.

Richter is a great character, akin to old noir P.I. novels. And that he's a zombie, in constant need of repair, is a wonderful twist. All of the characters are larger than life, and often humorous in nature. With plenty of twists, surprises, and undead smack-downs, Nekropolis has made my list of top reads of the year.

The setting is a lot like Simon R. Green's Nightside series with mystery, dark humor, and horror. Though I found myself enjoying this novel even more. The story is darker, a bit more complex, with likeable characters. It's fresh and fun; and I didn't want it to end. Fantasy and horror fans, don't miss this fantastic release.

OMG!! Where do I begin? I have to say that I enjoyed the overall story, descriptions were vivid, interesting characters, funny.....
Now here is the reason that I am giving this book a 2 star.....AWFUL EDITING/PROOFREADING/AND VERY MUCH IN NEED OF SPELLCHECK AND GRAMMER CHECK AS WELL!!!! For someone that teaches composition and creative writing at the college level, and is a faculty mentor of a major university...he has way too many issues with misspelled, ill used words. I kept with the story because I enjoyed it, but it is for the simple reason that because of the many errors in this book, I will not be reading more of the series, and leaving this author/character behind....sorry!!!!
