Featured Book Review: Sun Bleached Winter 0000
I admire how the author, D. Robert Grixit introduces the characters in this book and how he prepares his readers for what to expect. The author did a great job describing the atmosphere, scenery and how chaotic, gloomy, lifeless, dark, scary, eerie and dangerous his surrounding is in the wastelands.…
DEADWEIGHT - Robert Devereaux Horror Book Review
Horror books Review
The literary pinnacle of splatterpunk horror, Robert Devereaux’s Deadweight, re-released, combines scenes of viciousness and unrelenting depravity with the sensitive portrayal of a victimized woman who triumphs over the abusive husband she has sent to his grave and inadvertently resurrected.
“Robert Devereaux shocks me, delights me, and turns me on—none of which is easy to do. His eroticism is at once lyrical and visceral, his violence poetic, his style and subject matter daring to the point of danger. Devereaux is a major talent!”
—Poppy Z. Brite
“Deadweight delivers on every conceivable score. I was left awestruck by the fact that a book could be so brainfryingly brutal and yet so richly, lovingly, extraordinarily human.”
“Deadweight is, simply, the most extreme horror novel ever written. Deadweight is a great novel because it combines extremity with profound insight. It ranks exceptionally high, even for splatterpunk, in the gore and sexual deviance departments. But it also stands head and shoulders above anything else in the genre in terms of quality, extremity, and sheer brutal power.”
“An utterly outrageous splatter romance that pretty much defines over-the-top.”
“Devereaux ups the stakes for horror fiction, setting a new standard for intensity of description, visceral terror, and emotional power. In Deadweight, Robert Devereaux’s writing has a meticulous care and a stiletto-sharp focus. He makes you believe that he has seen the horrors he writes about. He will take you along for the ride, no matter how hard you struggle to get away.”
—Kevin J. Anderson
Robert Devereaux is a terrific new writer. His fiction is vicious and violent. I love it.
