I can't tell you HOW excited I AM! Ray Garton sent me a copy of his newest book RAVENOUS! I've got SO much to tell you about RAY...like he wrote his first novel at the age of 19 for one. AND he's my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE WRITER! Has been since I was in High School. *Now I have to say this...there are scenes in his books that some may find offensive, so it's not for everyone, but I LOVE his writing and NOTHING will ever change that. I'm almost done with it, but for now, I'm so excited about it, I wanted to get word out in case anyone else wanted to give it a try.
Here's what Publisher's Weekly had to say about Ravenous:
A serial rapist is on the loose in the sleepy California town of Big Rock, and sheriff Farrell Hurley's secretary is the latest victim. When a self-proclaimed werewolf hunter named Daniel Fargo comes into town claiming that Big Rock has an infestation of the creatures, Hurley thinks the man is insane, until the eviscerated corpses and attacks by large animals start in earnest. For Garton, lycanthropy is an STD, spread mostly through rape, that runs rampant through a small town fraught with affairs and intrigues. His werewolf is a terrifying creature: not a remorseful, helpless cursed human but a homicidal beast driven by a dual urge to breed and feed. Hurley is a sheriff to root for, and Garton's well-paced horror novel reworks the werewolf myth to great effect. (Apr.)
I have to say that throughout my life he's scared the daylights out of me and that is SO hard to do! So if you're remotely interested, I say give him a try. Live Girls, Pieces of Hate and a lot of his others are not oop and they are all good. I THINK. I'll leave it up to you.
That's all for now. Hope you've had a happy weekend of reading!
