The Green Lama by Adam Lance Garcia
The Green Lama: Scions - Adam Lance Garcia,Douglas Klauba

This story was way more fun than I expected. I do enjoy pulp fiction but I usually have to be in a mood for it as so much of the genre can be campy and sexist. Not this one! I was happy to see so many female characters in the book – and they get stuff done too! They don’t just look pretty while being rescued.

Set in New York, there’s a variety of characters for the Big Bad Evil to infect and/or kill. The creeptastic aspects lead back to a ship that crashed into Liberty Island. It’s something out of a horror movie and it has the police baffled. But never fear! The Green Lama knows what this evil is, much to his sadness.

For such a short story, it’s a pretty big cast of characters. I did have a little trouble keeping them all separate. However, they are all interesting. There’s Jean Farell, who is a good shot and doesn’t shy away from rescuing men knocked unconscious. Frankie, who is French Black American, has a soft spot for kids that need rescuing.

Jethro Durmont, the hero of this tale, is a bit standard. He’s a millionaire white guy who lost his parents under horrible circumstances, and ran off to Asia to learn some mystical self-defense arts. Sound familiar, no? Batman, Iron Fist, The Arrow, etc. He does have at least one unique aspect – he needs his special radioactive salts on a regular basis to maintain his special powers. I hope he labels those appropriately so the guests don’t use them to flavor their soup!

Betty Dale, a newsreporter, has me wondering what will happen in the next book. She knows the Green Lama’s secrets but he also knows who she is. Then there’s poor Lt. Caraway. He made me laugh a few times but things didn’t go well for him in this story. Overall, it was a fun story. 4.5/5 stars

The Narration: Jiraiya Addams puts on a great performance. He has unique voices for all the characters and his female characters sound feminine. He went all out voicing the Evil, which was multi-layered voices for individual characters affected by it. Chilling! There were no technical issues with the recording. 5/5 stars

JURASSIC, FLORIDA by Hunter Shea
Jurassic, Florida - Hunter Shea

The quiet town of Polo Springs, Florida, (It's where you go to die!), is about to suffer from an invasion the likes of which it has never seen. Hurricanes? No problem! Climate change? No worries! Giant Iguanas? What the..what???

 

That's right, lizards! At first they're cute and remind you of those television commercials. Then, they seem to be larger than your average geckos. Then, they seem like they must be on steroids or something. And then? Then, they are bigger than your car and threatening to destroy your house! Will the people of Polo Springs survive? You'll have to read this novella to find out!

 

Hunter Shea is the man when it comes to fun creature features. That's all there is to it. There's no shame in serving up fine horror cheese, (and this is cheesy, have no doubt), because, let's face it - sometimes we are just in the mood for some chasing and chomping! What creature is doing the dining? Who cares? Who's getting eaten? Perhaps some of us like to substitute certain members of our families or co-workers for the actual characters... what? Who said that? Anyway, pretty much everyone is getting eaten and that's what's fun about it! There's no fake, drippy sentimentality here. Everyone is fair game.

 

Once again, I came away from this creature feature interlude totally entertained and with another story to tell my friends. "I just read this great book about..." 

 

Highly recommended for fans of creature feature FUN!

 

*Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for the e-ARC of this book in exchange for my honest feedback. This is it!*

What can I add to what everyone else has written? Nothing. This was awesome! That is all.

 

I posted this yesterday. It posted to Facebook and Twitter, but did not post here. I tried to post it again today. Nothing. Now I'm just creating an entire new post only because I'm so excited about how good this graphic novel was. 

 

This site is getting on my nerves.

Southern Pulp Fiction – Tijuana Donkey Showdown by Adam Howe @Adam_G_Howe
Tijuana Donkey Showdown - Adam Howe

 

 

Tijuana Donkey Showdown by Adam Howe is one raunchy, ridiculously hilarious ride.

I mean, look at the cover for a hint of what’s inside. I don’t believe your imagination can get you there. LOL

 

Tijuana Donkey Showdown

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

Adam Howe’s writing is so over the top, backwoods swamp honky tonk, upchucking, hilariously, side splitting funny, I am almost embarassed to say that I LOVE IT!

 

I am happy to be back with Reggie in the shithole strip club he bounces at. His life is one bad thing after another and I laugh my way through each adventure.

 

I don’t know how to describe this raunchy, uncouth, crude, twisted story, but, maybe, Southern pulp fiction is a start. Adam Howe’s imagination is so far out there, I wonder what he’s taking, and I’ll have some please! LOL

 

The donkey…OMG…the donkey…

 

As I read his notes about his research, I can only imagine what someone would think if they looked at his browser history.

 

I love how he makes fun about Nicholas Cage. I love Nic and some of the weird twisted movies he plays in. What’s even funnier, right after I finished reading this, I ended up watching Ghost Rider, a Nicholas Cage movie that, well, you have to see it to ‘believe’ it.

 

There is a bonus story – Clean Up On Aisle 3 – This is one robbery where the owner has a surprise that you will never see coming…and never want to.

 

I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Tijuana Donkey Showdown by Adam Howe.
