"Long's prose is deft and clear, transporting the reader from one character's psyche to the next...this tale is a compelling one. A psychological thriller for readers who are bored with run-of-the-mill horror...Those who embrace the genre will eagerly anticipate a second installment in the series." - Kirkus Reviews
"Intelligent, self-aware, and often amusing...hitting all the markers for sadistic, salacious, and scary. Long is doubtless going to build a large and loyal fan base composed of people just like him: literate folks with a bizarre sense of humor who prefer a bucket of blood to a bath filled with rose petals." - ForeWord Clarion Reviews
"Totally absorbing! The Book of Paul is moving, profound, funny, terrifying and never lets you go. The prose is swift and sharp...at times, even poetic. Masterful storytelling. Hats off!!" - Henry Bean, writer/director of The Believer
"The Book of Paul is a surreal spellbinding tale of terror and horror destined for bestseller status." - RJ Parker, author of The Serial Killer Compendium
From the Author
The Book of Paul is not for the faint-hearted. There is graphic sex, sadomasochism and gore. There are also plenty of laughs along the way. Written in short, titled chapters, the story is The Book of Paul is highly cinematic. Think The Omen meets Pulp Fiction. Descriptive narrative is kept to a minimum. Multiple character viewpoints allow readers to project their own perspective and participate more intensely in the experience -- to climb inside and walk down all those dark alleyways.
Propelled by the prophecy of an apocalyptic event, The Book of Paul rides a crest of dark suspense above an undercurrent of arcane mystery. The mythological tapestry is gradually revealed through the narrator's secret journals. Only as the climax approaches does he fully grasp his own significance in the labyrinth of Paul's nefarious scheme.
