Jack Kilborn’s “Afraid” Thursday, Nov 4 2010 

A helicopter has crashed near Safe Haven and unleashed something horrifying. Now this merciless force is about to do what it does best. Isolate. Terrorize. Annihilate. As residents begin dying in a storm of gory violence, Safe Haven’s only chance for survival will rest with an aging county sheriff, a firefighter, and a single mom.

I should have posted this before now but you know I never got around to it.
This is a must read, J.A. Konrath aka Jack Kilborn has out done Dean Koontz and Stephen King with “Afraid”. If you are in the mood for a bad ass suspense novel “Afraid” is the book for you. “Afraid” is by far the best novel I have read in years. 5 Stars.


Jack Kilborn “Serial” Thursday, Nov 4 2010 

Remember the twin golden rules of hitchhiking?
# 1: Don’t go hitchhiking, because the driver who picks you up could be certifiably crazy.
# 2: Don’t pick up hitchhikers, because the traveler you pick up could be raving nutcase.
So what if, on some dark, isolated road, Crazy #1 offered a ride to Nutcase #2?

When two of the most twisted minds in the world of horror fiction face off, the result is SERIAL, a terrifying tale of hitchhiking gone terribly wrong. Like a deeply twisted version of an “After School Special,” SERIAL is the single most persuasive public service announcement on the hazards of free car rides. Beyond a thrilling piece of horrifying suspense, SERIAL is also a groundbreaking experiment in literary collaboration. Kilborn wrote the first part. Crouch wrote the second. And they wrote the third together over email in 100-word exchanges, not aware of each other’s opening section. All bets were off, and may the best psycho win.

I really enjoyed this short story written by Blake Crouch & JA Konrath, If you are looking from a fast read I would recommand this one. You can find a free version of this ebook at Barnes & Noble http://www.bn.com and other sites online. you can also find the uncut version for $2.99. I read the free version and have been tempted to get the uncut version.
