My Albert Taylor Mystery Double Feature, Private Number/Claws, was officially released today!

Get your Kindle Edition from Amazon.com now, Only $2.99!

Synopsis:

Private Number: A radio station receives a strange call from a caller from beyond the grave, at least that’s what’s claimed. But is it a hoax, a crank caller, or is the person truly dead? When things get more baffling paranormal investigator, Albert Taylor, steps in to look into matters that harbor a dark and evil secret.

Claws: A series of brutal and savage animal-like murders rattle the small mining town of Brewster, Nevada, a quiet, little community where such atrocities are unheard of, where everyone knows each other’s name, and where you can leave your door unlocked at night…until now that is. Weird animal hairs are discovered at each of the crime scenes. Is it an animal or a sinister creature of myth and lore lurking in the woods? When the body count starts racking up and tension among the townspeople rises, the town turns to paranormal investigator, Albert Taylor, to sort matters and lay his traps for the predator.

Reader Review of “The Demon Seeds”!

This book review of my most recent book made my day. Thanks to Amazon reviewer Dona! You’re awesome!

This is a great short read. I see the plot is outlined in the other reviews – demon entities, taking on the guise of bubogs, come to LA to disperse their seeds throughout The Valley and eventually the world via Charles Manson styled cults which prey on young women using mind control and similar techniques — enter our (Darrin McGavin in the old television series Nightstalker styled) professor monster hunter and his trusty side-kick student whose friend has been brain-washed and impregnated with demon seed. Hang on for some (Indiana Jones styled) action and hang on tighter for an ending I will not reveal. I’d like to see a series–in books and/or on television. Muk’s writing style is engaging and lots of his references made me smile.

-Derek
