More About the Author

BRIAN HODGE, called "a writer of spectacularly unflinching gifts" by no less than Peter Straub, is the award-winning author of ten novels of horror and crime/noir. He's also written over 100 short stories, novelettes, and novellas, and four full-length collections. His most recent collection, 2011's Picking The Bones, became the first of his books to be honored with a Publishers Weekly starred review. His first collection, The Convulsion Factory, was ranked by critic Stanley Wiater among the 113 best books of modern horror.

He's recently finished the time-consuming task of porting over his earlier works for e-book editions, using it as an opportunity to do a fresh line-edit and polish on every novel and collected story.

He lives in Colorado, where more of everything is in the works. He also dabbles in music, sound design, and photography; loves everything about organic gardening except the thieving squirrels; and trains in Krav Maga and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, which are of no use at all against the squirrels.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Overall this book was entertaining although not on par with the creepy and creative delights I have come to expect from this author. I LOVE his short story collections and while this book has a solid and interesting story it was a bit disjointed and felt more like a draft than a polished novel.

The biggest issue I have with this book is the insane number of typos (found on nearly every page), from extra punctuation to extra characters randomly sprinkled throughout. I don't know if I got some sort of alien adaptation, Kindle version, or if they are all like this but if you are easily distracted by misspelled words, strange punctuation and questionable grammar you may want to try a sample first before you buy.

All in all I will read more of Brian Hodge's work and hope that there is more creepy goodness waiting for me in the next one!
