They came to the deserted island to compete on a popular reality television show. Each one hoped to be the last to leave. Now they're just hoping to stay alive, because the island isn't deserted after all. Contestants are disappearing, but they aren't being eliminated by the game. They're being taken by the monstrous, half-human creatures that live deep in the jungle. The men will be slaughtered. The women will be kept alive as captives. Night is falling, the creatures are coming, and rescue is so far away . . . Deadite Press is proud to present Brian Keene's tribute to the late, great Richard Laymon! "Bloody, vile, violent and nasty. Castaways is a can't put down page turner." -House of Horrors "Much like Laymon, Keene provides all kinds of thrills here... But Brian Keene has his own voice, too, one just as good a the late great master, Richard Laymon." -SFRevu

Castaways by Brian Keene is a fun “Survivor” type novel in which the game gets a little bit sideways…and then the wheels come completely off. It is a tongue in cheek horror novel that reads very quick with a quirky cast of characters and no shortage of blood and guts. If you are looking to read some...

I suppose if possible I'd give this book 1.5 stars, because I did stick with it to the end (morbid curiosity). At times this book had a violence-and-rape p*rn vibe to it--as in, there was a bit too much loving detail given to describing the extreme violence and brutal rapes. And I ultimately felt it...
