Night Hunter
Night Hunter (1995)
Michael Reaves
"Hard-bitten cop vs. hard-biting vampire. A sucking good read."
Bone Music
Bone Music (1995)
Alan Rodgers
"Alan Rodgers . . . uses simple and beautiful words to tell this complex and horrific story. Really weird! Don't die until you've read Bone Music."
Waking Brigid
Waking Brigid (2008)
Francis Clark
"It's refreshing to read a novel that's so plainly stated, so succinct and yet so vivid. Here from a writer who is well worth watching, is a locked room mystery that is more than worth unlocking!"
