"'Victimized' is one of the best pieces of bad-ass, hard-core apocalyptic noir I've read in a while." --Scott Phillips, author of THE ICE HARVEST
"Put your dukes up, readers, because Thomas is gunning for the KO with this brutal little ass-kick of a story."
--Craig Davidson, author of SARAH COURT
ass-kicking and twisted as fiction gets. Imagine a Dear John letter that Hitler
might have written to Lucifer right before he blew his brains out. Then crank things up ten notches."
--Donald Ray Pollock, author of KNOCKEMSTIFF
"A horrifying vision...strong and
energetic prose hot enough to blow a power plant. It isn't pretty and it isn't
for everyone, but the best work never is."
--Rob Roberge, author of WORKING BACKWARDS FROM THE WORST MOMENT OF MY LIFE
