Joe R Lansdale recommends
Moonbane
Moonbane (1989)
Al Sarrantonio
"Al Sarrantonio's Moonbane is a stylish B-movie of a novel. Fast paced and poetic, and scary in the old-fashioned sense of such fine B-chillers as The Cat People and I Walked With a Zombie."
Recycled
Recycled (2003)
(Queen of Denial, book 2)
Selina Rosen
"RECYCLED is one hot SOB. It rocks with writerly rhythm and a beautiful and funny vulgarity."
Through Violet Eyes
Through Violet Eyes (2004)
(Violet Eyes , book 1)
Stephen Woodworth
"One cool idea and Stephen Woodworth makes it work like fine oiled machinery. Full of energy and suspense."
Twisted City
Twisted City (2004)
Jason Starr
"Streamlined as a model's hips, dark as the inside of a dog's gut, Twisted City is a hip, white collar update on the James Cain, Jim Thompson style novel with a seasoning of its own."
Eat the Dark
Eat the Dark (2007)
Joe Schreiber
"Eat the Dark is a tight novel of terror. Well written, fast paced, with a grip like a claw. I loved it."
The Successful Novelist
The Successful Novelist (2008)
David Morrell
"The Successful Novelist is the vehicle you want if you plan to drive your way to successful fiction."
Yellow Moon
Yellow Moon (2013)
David Searls
"Creepy and atmospheric, Yellow Moon is full of small-town authenticity. It’s like an alternate universe horror version of The Andy Griffith Show."
