... solid prose commands attention right from the start and carries the reader straight through to the climax. --Garrett Peck for Cemetery Dance #40
This story reads like Stephen King writing a Lovecraft story, bringing King's level of descriptive prose to the supernatural creature from underground storyline. --Steve & Lesley Mazey for The Eternal Night
Island Life is so much more than just another monster story. Meikle's prose draws the reader in, weaving a tightly spun web of folklore, horror, and suspense from which there is no escape. --Paula Heuschkel for The Modoc Record
From the Author
We drank a lot of beer and sat up in the old light room well into the night. On the way down we scared ourselves stupid when we encountered the screaming banshee that inhabited the building. In the morning I discovered a burial mound outside, and a local legend of a nine-foot skeleton found there.
And that was that, for several years. I only started writing seriously three years later. I was struggling for an idea one day and looked through some photographs. There it was - a burial mound, with a lighthouse in the background. I had a "What if?" moment.
And "Island Life" was born.
