I first discovered this cat, with his SPectral Press chapbook, "What They Hear In The Dark." A creepy exercise in lost and guilt.

I just finished book one in a series to feature the character of Thomas Usher. "Pretty Little Dead Things" concerns Usher, a man haunted by guilt and the ability to see the dead. I know, I know.,..so old hat. BUT what this brilliant novel is is a great mixture of noirish gumshoe and supernatural creepiness. Think CRACKER meets SIXTH SENSE with a sprinkling of ANGEL HEART and MEMENTO.

It's fucking brilliant and contains some of the most unsettling villains and eeriest images I have read in a long time.

Really?

You fuckers are missing out on some great stuff here. Gary writes some mad shit.

I'm finishing his Concrete Grove trilogy and it is every bit as amazing as his other books.

The unsettling images he conjures are staggering.

AND I interv iewd him for the upcoming issue (SHOCK TOTEM #6)

Smile

I think I have Pretty Little Dead Things in the to-read pile on my Nook. If the ebooks were paper, I'd be buried up to my neck. Very Happy
