Kris Saknussemm
"A tapestry of wonders, a new American myth."
Tuskers II: Day of the Long Pig (2015)
(Wild Pig Apocalypse, book 2)
Duncan McGeary
"Pure Pleasure. Superintelligent wild pigs on a rampage. The world needed this book."
The Big Get-Even (2018)
(Glen and Stan, book 1)
Paul Di Filippo
"The Big Get-Even is a smooth-running Swiss watch, compulsively readable and spiked with wry wit. You cheer the motley characters every step of the way to the H-bomb climax. As Di Filippo would say: It's a puzzle wrapped in a mind-f*ck inside a Secret Santa present. Raymond Chandler would love this book."
