Blaze of Glory is a fun, fast-paced novel. The grim scenario is painted out well and the atmosphere created really fits the story. Although I have a general fatigue with end of the world type novels, since I seem to be reading many of them lately, this was a different type of disaster and a more localized scenario without an extensive story about the survival of a group, and instead fixating on accomplishing one singular goal. I liked the focus of the novel. The characters were a bit rough around the edges and not always likeable, but remained intent on accomplishing their goals. This was an enjoyable novel that I would recommend reading.
Carl Alves - author of Reconquest: Mother Earth
The title seemed to fit from the very beginning - a group of desperate humans fighting the final apocalypse, hoping against hope that humanity will somehow prevail. But during the final pages, you discover something deeper - not just about the characters but about what is, perhaps, one of humanity's greatest advantages.
Oh, come on. I'm not telling you what it is!
What I love about Blaze is Ochse's constant mashing-up of high and lowbrow, of funny and scary, of the themes of hope and despair. Ochse is working in a genre that has seen every kind of creature, but he still keeps things fresh by never quite coloring in the lines.
The "maggies" (a nickname derived from maggots) come in different flavors. Some are the size of buses, toppling buildings and ripping up pavement, while others are small enough to live inside you (there are a few moments of gory body horror in the story ala The Thing). The monsters are captivating, but Ochse also understands the need for compelling human characters for readers to root for. This is a short novel, but enough time is spent on characterization that we grow to care for Buckley, Little Rashad, et al.
Highly recommended, especially for only three bucks.
