Book Description

A young sculptress despondently searching for understanding after the tragic death of her infant son...
A professor of history and a beautiful French vintner, still longing for the love they shared during World War II...
A legless man seeking retribution and escape from a horror worse than death...
A retired detective itching to get back in the game...
Disparate lives, yet each meticulously woven together over time to play a special part in the Puzzleman’s twisted vision of eternal life.
Into the black Cathedral Fleur du Sang and into the pipes they must go –– into a terrifying world of grumemonsters, where the inaccuracies of accepted history and the gruesome future of mankind are laid bare.
For Amanda Zimmerman, Professor John Rainbow, Jeannette Orfèvre, the legless man, and Detective Ben Henfry, the Puzzleman is a personal demon awakened into a living nightmare –– and it’s up to them alone to wage their fight for sanity and salvation. A fight that swells into a harrowing escape, spanning two continents and the supernatural perversion of time and dimension. Welcome to the Pipeworld.
Welcome to truth and eternity.
Welcome to the world of the Puzzleman.

Very scary!!! Could not stop reading it. Well written. Very disturbing, but I loved all of it. Finally a hora book for people who are willing to think. Can't wait for the next one and am looking forward to being scared out of my wits again.

Christopher Alan Broadstone is one of the darkest authors in horror fiction today.

Puzzleman, as a character, is more twisted, more evil, and more demented than anything Clive Barker or Steven King has ever created. The Dark Man (The Stand) and Pennywise (IT)would do well to take lessons from Puzzleman.

The book is incredibly well written. The graphic imagery of Christopher Alan Broadstone's writing is the stuff that nightmares spring from. There are multiple story lines being told and Christopher's ability to keep them straight, believable, and memorable is unmatched in anything I've read since the writings of H.P. Lovecraft. Chris creates a history behind the Puzzleman that creates a deep horror of the knowledge that Puzzleman's existence is eternal and he's responsible for the most horrific acts of history including the holocaust.

If you buy one horror novel this year, make it this one! And then get THREE DEAD GIRLS (DVD) to witness this incredibly dark and twisted mind bring three shorts to terrifyingly beautiful imagery with the outstanding actor Tony Simmons!

3.0 out of 5 stars Impressive Debut January 6, 2006
Format:Paperback
Christopher Alan Broadstone's PUZZLEMAN is an extremely ambitious first novel. It is very apparent a lot of research went into this book -- everything from Greek mythology, characters from World War II, and even a detailed description on how to shoot heroin most effectively.

While I wouldn't categorize this as a straight horror novel -- something more along the lines of Roman Polanski's THE NINTH GATE, many scenes are deliciously graphic without feeling over-the-top. Where the book didn't quite work for me, besides a few too many coincidences, was the sudden Greek history lesson in the middle where our protagonist discovers the background of the evil. I kind of got lost in trying to uncover the mystery along with him.

That being said, the pipe world in Puzzleman is very creative and original and somewhere I would never like to go -- nor would I even send my worst enemy. Sure, this 400+ pager could have been edited down a little, but it was an enjoyable ride nonetheless. I look forward to Broadstone's next novel and for those who have not seen his short horror films (which he wrote and brilliantly directed), I highly advise you to check out his website at [...] The three horror shorts that he made are easily the best -- if not THE best -- I've ever seen. And that says a lot.

4.0 out of 5 stars Deep In The Pipes and Beyond... May 23, 2005
Format:Paperback
Visionary filmmaker Christopher Alan Broadstone, whose cutting edge shorts MY SKIN, SCREAM FOR ME and HUMAN NO MORE rank as some of the most unnerving and artistic films of recent memory, allows his morbid imagination free reign with the 400 page novel, PUZZLEMAN. Upsetting, enthralling and charged with visceral energy, it features one of the most twisted villains of the entire genre, and drags us through an atmosphere that is bizarre, gruesome and incredible.

Buying an ancient wire-coiled earring whose layered, random patterns house a terrible secret, Texas sculptress Amanda Zimmerman falls under the influence of a preternatural creature. Called the Puzzleman - because of his horribly mismatched body and lop-sided head - he attempts to lure Amanda into the grue-filled, gummy hell that is the pipeworld, so that he can feed off her emotional pain amid a torrent of perpetually squirming body parts and "grume-monsters".

Using one of his former captives, the quite literally "Legless Man", as bait, The Puzzleman drowns Amanda in the vertiginous nightmare of her own personal demons. Playing off her torment at the death of her infant son, which she blames on God's absence and absolute lack of interest, the unbalanced creature takes possession of Amanda, forcing her into his terrifying limbo, frozen in the fleshy agony that exists before one spirals into death.

Meanwhile, a disparate thread of characters, including Professor John Rainbow, Detective Ben Henfry and wine merchant Jeanette Orfevre, all find themselves entwined in the Puzzleman's sick designs.
