"A Sane Man vs. The Thing From The Woods... And Other Pulp Fictions" by Jeremy Milks


As you can probably tell, I've been absent from this blog for awhile but I've been putting the finishing touches on my first book of short horror stories called "A Sane Man vs. The Thing From The Woods... and Other Pulp Fictions".

You can get a print copy or download a version here for cheap if yer interested.

By clicking on the title, you can also get a preview of the first part of the book as well.

Here's the description from the back cover:

"After a tough day at the office, a middle-aged man comes home to his family, only to find a fitter, “better” version of himself has somehow taken his place without anyone noticing…

In a fury of shocking ultra-violence, a thrash-metal loving, muscle-bound freakshow rampages through a Los Angeles gym during the height of the shallow and decadent 1980’s…

Someone is viciously murdering homeless people downtown and two unlikely heroes – a failed journalist and an aging, alcoholic detective – must band together to solve the crime because no one will ever believe what they’ve seen…

A respected and well-known professor disappears, leaving only a bizarre letter to his daughter telling of a small town that holds some horrible secrets from his past, among them the certain problem of mutilated teenagers washing up on shore every 50 years or so…

An ambitious but na├»ve young man moves into a secluded cabin to write his “Great Canadian Novel” but quickly realizes that something in the woods doesn’t appreciate the intrusion on its territory, sparking an age old battle to the death between human and animal…

What you hold in your hand are 5 blood splattered stories in the tradition of classic pulp novels, Italian “giallo” films, H.P. Lovecraft, anthology horror movies and “creature features” from a bygone era.

So grab a beer, put your feet up and prepare to get your face ripped off (in a good, clean, fun way of course!)."
