What a lovely thing to wake up to! Most of you reading this blog will be familiar with the name Richard Laymon. He’s considered one of the best horror writers of the eighties and nineties, and despite his tragic and far-too-early passing in 2001, he remains one of the most read, one of the most beloved, and one of the most influential horror authors in the genre. I spoke at length about him in this article and, interestingly enough, in the Acknowledgments page of Savage Species.
Of course, it goes without saying—even though I’m saying it—that I’m not claiming my writing is equal to Laymon’s or that I consider myself in his class. But when someone else compares one of my books to his, and if that someone is a person who knows his stuff (and Mark Justice does), you can bet your rump I’m going to devote a blog post to it.
The FREE first installment of Savage Species (Night Terrors), by the way, is available for free everywhere ebooks are sold. Here are just a few links where you can pick up your free copy:
Thank you, Mark, for your awesome tweet, and thank you all for your support. I hope you check out Night Terrors. I think you’ll find it worth your while.
