"Real muscle! Scenes so chilling, so repugnant, so seamlessly portrayed in their intensity, they can't help tear a reaction from the reader." - Charles de Lint

"Slob really smokes. Its got muscle it hasn't even used yet. It's the place where old John D used to work before Travis McGee got winded." - Harlan Ellison

"This terrifying and original novel marks the debut of a writer who is able to bring dynamite with both hands." - Stephen King

"Words like powerful, visceral, and monstrous don't even begin to describe the kind of book Slob is. There is a primal energy at work here that won't quit." - Thomas F Monteleone

"Has got to be a tour de force: splatterpunk at its grisliest. Tasty as a blood sundae. The only question is, what does Killer Miller do for an encore?" - Alan E Nourse
