Welcome to a world of thrills, chills, and all varieties of vampires, werewolves, zombies, mad doctors, mummies, and alien invaders. This book is a compilation of Tom Hammond's blog posts. The scope of his interests and obsessions span genre films, science fiction, horror pulps, comic books, weird fiction, and dark denizens of every type. The articles, essays, and reviews are perfect for quick midnight reads.
Rudo is a hard-drinking, chain-smoking, irreligious hit man, disguised as a luchador. The giant Titan is a fallen former champion of the ring, trying to reclaim his lost glory by spreading the word of God. Together, they have a talent for running into trouble of the supernatural kind. They have just stumbled upon a dark Florida swamp containing an earth shattering secret. Soon they will face zombies, an ancient witch, a vampire goddess, and a demonic creation straight from hell.
These short (mostly) fictional stories are crafted with incisive observation and unsparing honesty. The interplay between thought and deed moves fluidly even among independent stories. Internal voices lead characters to acts of desperation, redemption, or unapologetic apathy, where they risk comfort to squirm with (mostly) inappropriate motivations and confessions. That’s where the unpredictable meets the unconventional in these short stories, flash fictions, and nano tales from the edge.
