Reader Reviews “The Demon Seeds”!

Here’s a nice Amazon reader review of my book, The Demon Seeds. It’s always nice to know someone enjoyed something you wrote. Thanks, Jesse! 😀

Derek Muk asked if I could review his book. I wish the cover was better, but the content beneath is worth reading.

The Demon Seed is a fast and enjoyable read with realistic, and sometimes comedic dialogue. The story begins with a disappearance. I don’t know about you, but I enjoy a thrill right from the get go, and this book delivers that. Just as important, the thrill maintains its momentum throughout the story.

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.

Sharing a table at FOGcon…

Sharing a dealer’s table at Fog Con with another fellow writer. Great con!

If you haven’t been to FOGcon before, you should definitely go next year! Here’s a pic from my dealer’s table.

From their site:

Friends of the Genre (FOGcon) is a literary-themed San Francisco Bay Area SF/F con in the tradition of Wiscon. Each year we focus on a new theme in speculative fiction and invite Honored Guests ranging from writers to scientists to artists. We build community, exchange ideas, and share our love for the literature of imagination.

I had a blast. Hope to see you there in 2019!

Unnerving Magazine Reviews The Demon Seeds

A great review of my book The Demon Seeds, was just published by Eddie at Unnerving Magazine.

Here’s an excerpt:

Derek Muk writes in a horror style that is one part mystery, one part thriller, with a sprinkling of gore. His style is somewhere between Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Mary Higgins Clark. It’s lively and fast in a way that thoroughly covers the important points while skipping most character backgrounds.

For the full review, follow the link below.

Thanks, Eddie!

Vampire Nation Published by Crimson Frost Books

Available now from Crimson Frost Books is my new Albert Taylor book, Vampire Nation, which was inspired by 1980s pop culture, music, and old Jamie Lee Curtis horror movies. Call it a paranormal horror story that reeks of retro 80s culture, complete with big hair, silly clothes, and killer songs that will have you dancing, jumping, and singing and rocking along with your air guitar (okay, maybe not that far) but you certainly get the picture. A yearning for a time and era long, long, ago. People keep harping that the 80s were the best decade ever. But was it really? What do you think?

Many thanks to Patricia and her great staff at Crimson Frost Books. Here’s more information about the book as well as the cover reveal. Now if I could just find my Rubik’s Cube. Where did I put it?? Darn it!

Zombie Island Released Through The Society of Misfit Stories!

61tglb1sl7lReleased today is my story “Zombie Island” through The Society of Misfit Stories. This one was inspired by past vacations in Hawaii, especially my very first visit to the islands way back in 1999. That was a fun and special trip and I tried to capture that sense of newness and novelty I experienced as a first-time traveler in this story. That feeling of playing a tourist.
