Greggard Penance has spent a good portion of his life as a parttime free-lance writer for travel magazines. He has roots in Tennessee and Arkansas. Like a gypsy, he travels more than not, and cannot remember the last place he called home. He plans to write a novel soon, which like his story in this book, will tread the waters between the real and surreal. Simon Janus is the horror identity for thriller author Simon Wood. As Simon Janus, he s the author of The Scrubs. As Simon Wood, he s an Anthony Award-winner of five books as well as over 140 published articles and stories. Vince Churchill has published two novels: The Dead Shall Inherit The Earth, and The Blackest Heart. The Dead Shall Inherit The Earth was recently featured in XBOX Magazine s ZOMBIES! Collector s Edition as one of the 37 Greatest Zombie Triumphs.

His short fiction has appeared in anthologies such as The Undead, The Undead II, +The Horror Library+ Volume 1, The Beast Within, and the recent Midnight Walk. He was also a list contributor in the recent Book of Lists: Horror. Vince s latest novel, The Butcher Bride, is scheduled to be published by Black Bed Sheet Books in the fall of 2009. Ray Brown is the author of The Quest, a five part series of novellas, including Book one: Dunumos, Book two: Chronicles of War, Book Three: The Darkness, Book Four: Evil s Dawn, and Book Five: The Child. Dunumos is published and available by Xulon Press, Chronicles of War will soon go to press, and The Darkness is currently being penned. Brown is a prolific writer and producer, having successfully translated Evil s Dawn into a promising comic book series. Condemned is just one project that Brown has shaped from concept to completion. While this is his first stab (pardon the pun) at horror, it most certainly will not be his last. His personal desire is to make movies that you can read. There are only two things he loves more than writing and they are God and his family.

THE BREACH by Greggard Pennance
I dug this supernatural tale of a plane crash survivor struggling to cope with some strange incidents he saw during the crash. Furthermore, strange signs in his dreams and in everyday life, lure him back to the crash site in the ocean where the horrors await. The writing is very tight, the scope is awesome, my only complaint is that there are some minor plot holes, but they are ones typical of genre fiction and can be overlooked by mere suspension of disbelief. Once a few pages in, this is a tough one to put down.
ROAD RASH by Simon Janus
This is one nasty bugger of a novella about a bank robber who after escaping police and his double-crossing partner, gets touched by a nearly skinless man who passes his curse on to our hero. He then must find a way to get from California to Oregon in a stolen car with $400,000 in loot and skin that is melting fast. His quest for the cure is entertaining and the ending is quite satisfying. Very fun read.
Bodies Raining by Rick J. Brown
This is a story I will never forget-- a strange post-apocalyptic Sci-Fi/horror coming-of-age love tale that spans the life of Corey, a kid with prophetic gifts, who forsees the dying off of various species. His relationship with his adventurous girlfriend and loyal, pudgy next door neighbor as the apocalypse begins is well crafted even as they grow up and Corey travels to the moon to dump bodies for a living. A couple of parts actually brought out the tears and the profound imagery that came from this was mind-blowingly intense. The writing is superb in every aspect-- this deserves the attention of all who appreciate original horror fiction.
The other novella about a horny douche bag of a guy trying to survive during the rapture was okay, but paled in comparison to the others.
Overall, I reccomend this book-- I read the whole thing in a week and will probably revisit Bodies Raining in a year or so as it was that good.
