CRITICAL ACCLAIM
for GIANTS OF THE GENRE, MORE GIANTS OF
THE GENRE
and DARK DUETS:


“Michael McCarty’s Giants Of The Genre is one of the most
important books of interviews in the horror field since
Douglas E. Winter’s Faces Of Fear. We were long overdue for
a new one, and McCarty delivers with smart questions, resulting
in thoughtful replies.”
– Garrett Peck, Editor and Reviewer

“As an interviewer, Michael McCarty knows his stuff.
His questions are well-researched and thoughtful,
and they always keep the focus on his subject.”
– Romie Scott, Reflection's Edge

“Whether they’re household or obscure names, all these
creative people have plenty of fascinating and entertaining
things to say about their work and the genre they work in,
and each interview features a helpful chronological list”
– Steven Hampton, The Zone

“I recommend this book for anyone interested in the
authors present, and for writers just starting out ...
Giants Of The Genre is an intelligent, and in-depth,
and at times witty gaze into the writing careers of
twenty-one fascinating authors...”
– C.L. Carnley, Dark Krypt

“More Giants Of The Genre is still a great read and a nifty
love letter from a guy who truly digs what he does.”
– Chris Alexander, Rue Morgue Magazine

“Light, comical short stories that range from the history of
zombie rockers Meat Wagon to the life and times of a
white picket zombie family (and everything in between), Dark Duets
... is actually a quite a gross chuckle. Fun, slightly gory and
incredibly inventive, think of Duets as hilarious toilet-time terror”
– Keith Carman, Rue Morgue Magazine

“’Skull Job’ has a certain nasty charm to it, and the quirky
‘Carnie-Vore,’ co-written by the award-winning P.D. Cacek,
made me laugh, particularly in retrospect, and is probably the
book’s best piece. ‘The Ten Klown-Mandments' has the
distinction of being the most bizarre story I have ever read...”
– Sharon Dodge, Reflection's Edge
