Another review market cracked

One of the coolest things that happened recently is that Play Dead was reviewed in both Publisher’s Weekly and Booklist. This is only the second book we’ve had reviewed in PW and the first for Booklist.

PW said:…this cautionary tale grows sticky with relentless gore as the victims pile up. I actually hate PW reviews because they mostly just outline the plot and give too much away.

The Booklist review was better: Established contemporary horror author Arnzen serves up a chilling brew of gritty dialogue and hard-boiled, James Ellroy-style action that, by means of unexpected plot twists, never fails to keep readers alert and guessing.

I finally finished putting together the files for the Play Dead deck that will come with the grimoire. I have to say that artist Dave Lipscomb really outdid himself this time on the illustrations.
