Not Like Any Wrestling You Know – Wrestle Maniacs Anthology @Adam_G_Howe
Wrestle Maniacs - Duncan P. Bradshaw,Jeff Strand,Werner Leins,Eryk Pruitt,Jason Parent,Gabino Iglesias,Adam Howe,David James Keaton,James R. Newman,Katherine Kurtz

Some of the authors for the Wrestle Maniacs anthology are familiar to me and you may recognize some of them yourself.


Amazon  /  Goodreads




If you are a fan of wrestling or like twisted, convoluted tales that will tax your imagination, Wrestle Maniacs is for you. Some of the stories are sad, some are hilarious, and some are down right frightening. Twisted. Horrific. Every punishment you can imagine in the ring and many you never would have dreamt of, are contained herein.


Gabino Iglesias had me gagging and trying not to upchuck as I read his brutal, bloody story, El Neubo Sant’s Last Fight.


Adam Howe had me laughing my ass off, as Reggie, a shit magnet, finds himself in some of the most hilariously funny, yet dangerous situations in the book, in Rassle Hassle.


Gory, gross, disgusting and some seemingly normal stories, along with some horror, scifi, mystery, thrills and chills. Off the wall!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Wrestle Maniacs by Adam Howe & Company.

Animated Animals. Pictures, Images and Photos  5 Stars




A dozen dark fiction masters bring their twisted vision to the world of professional wrestling. Twelve original stories of crime, horror, humor, and taboo. Ohhh, yeahhh! This ain’t no kayfabe, baby. This is hard-hitting wrestling fiction that grips like a Camel Clutch, and pins the reader to the page for the count of one, two…THREE!


Includes a confrontational foreword by ring legend ‘Pulverizing’ Pat McCrunch (as told to Jeff Strand)… An all-new story starring Nick ‘The Widowmaker’ Bullman from James Newman’s wrestling noir, “Ugly as Sin”… And ex-boxer turned strip club bouncer Reggie Levine (“Tijuana Donkey Showdown,” “Damn Dirty Apes”) returns for another action-packed misadventure.


Original fiction by:
Jeff Strand
Tom Leins
James Newman
Eryk Pruitt
Adam Howe
Ed Kurtz
Hector Acosta
Joseph Hirsch
Duncan P. Bradshaw
David James Keaton
Gabino Iglesias

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




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.

Monday Mini – Die Dog or Eat the Hatchet by Adam Howe @Adam_G_Howe
Die Dog or Eat the Hatchet - Adam Howe

Oh man, I don’t know what to say about Die Dog or Eat the Hatchet by Adam Howe.

From Adam Howe, winner of Stephen King’s On Writing contest, come three original novellas of hardboiled crime, graphic horror and pitch-black gallows humor.


Die Dog or Eat the Hatchet


Goodreads  /  Amazon US  /  Amazon UK  /  Amazon CA


My Review for Damn Dirty Apes


Adam Howe’s writing kept me laughing through the horrific twists and turns that is so ‘sick’. A weird and wacky horror story had me laughing in disgust. The mix of humor, horror and horniness shared some despicable characters and I loved to hate them. They hunt and fight their way through blackmail, kidnap and violence.



My Review for Die Dog or Eat The Hatchet


A psychopath reveling in the memories of the brutal and grotesque murders he committed. When is the death penalty appropriate. When you meet Hingle and delve into his perverted and twisted mind. The horror and savagery is impossible for me to imagine on my own, so Adam Howe brings it to life for me. Wickedly good ending.


My Review for Gator Bait


Gator Bait is available by itself and I have already reviewed it. I will share a bite and you can check it out for yourself HERE.


OMG! The ending blew me away and I couldn’t help but laugh. I never could have seen ALL that coming and I love it. The best laid plans often go awry and boy, oh boy, do they.

Perfect for fans of Zoe Sharp and/or Taylor Stevens and/or Kick Ass women in Thrillers.
The Freedom Broker (A Thea Paris Novel) - K.J. Howe

Thea Paris is such a cool character -- she's like a combination of Charlie Fox and Vanessa Michael Munroe -- but with a very different load of emotional baggage. When she was a child, her brother was sleeping in her room to help her make it through a hard night when he was kidnapped. She's spent the following decades convinced that the only reason he was kidnapped is that the abductors thought he was Thea. Yes, he eventually made it back safely, but he was (obviously) never the same, and Thea used that to fuel her mission in life. Her father is the tycooniest of American Oil Tycoons, and she could've easily rested on his laurels, or followed in the family business.


But no, Thea is in private security, with an emphasis on K&R (Kidnapping and Ransom). She's the one negotiating with kidnappers/their representatives to get a ransom paid and the victim returned to his home/family/nation/company. When that doesn't work, Thea will lead the extraction team doing what they can to bring te victim home. She's one of the best around. She is not perfect, and we see that right off, but she gets the job done well.


Which is good, because on the verge of one of the biggest deals of his life, Thea's father, Christos, is kidnapped. It's up to her, some allies and friends to bring him home. There are several candidates for the kidnapper's identity -- there's the Chinese oil corporations competing with her father, there are representatives of the African nation that kidnapped her brother all those years ago, there's an arms dealer that has rumors flying, too. In the midst of this hunt, secrets will be revealed (many Thea will regret learning), and virtually everyone in her life will end up divulging something dark and hidden.


One more thing about Thea -- she's diabetic. Which is an interesting character trait -- I can't think of another action hero with something like that: a real physical condition that requires maintenance, but is manageable and will not ordinarily cause anything more than inconvenience. Sure, it does give us what I'm calling Chekhov's glucose monitor (not a spoiler, that's what I put in my notes when it was first mentioned).


I liked the other characters, too -- but it's hard to talk about most of them without getting too heavily into the plot. So let's just say there are a few people I'm really looking forward to seeing again, and a few that I enjoyed enough this time out, but am very glad they're in no position to show up again. Just about everyone has a believable motivation -- no matter what side of the law and/or morality they fall on -- which is just great.


Howe's prose is tight and the pacing is great. There's a few times that Thea has the same thought over and over -- which is probably realistic, but it seems repetitive (and possibly not trusting the reader enough) to read her conclude "X may have done Y" in a chapter, and then "Y may have been done by X" in the next. But it's nothing to get too worked up over, I didn't think. Howe does seem to have a "everything including the kitchen sink" approach to story telling -- the number of things that go wrong during Thea's search for her father, and the number of opponents and obstacles in her way is seemingly endless. I love it, every time you think she's on a roll and things are going to start going her way, a problem that the reader should've seen coming (but almost never does) shows up to derail things again. Sure, eventually, that comes to an end -- the book doesn't go on forever -- but not until Howe's good and ready for it to end. She's probably getting a new kitchen constructed to hurl at Thea in the next book.


There's a great mix of action and intrigue, putting clues together and smacking heads, emotional growth and uncovering the past. Like it's protagonist, The Freedom Broker isn't perfect, but it gets the job done well. Sign me up for the upcoming sequel, too.

Fun Thriller With Some Issues... But Still Fun
The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane - Katherine Howe
The main character, Connie Goodwin, is working to get her doctorate at Harvard.  As she looks for a topic on for her dissertation her mother asks her to clean out her grandmother’s old home. She finds strange jars full of things,  an old bible with a key and the name Deliverance Dane.  Her curiosity to find out more about Deliverance Dane leads her to a recipe book and Deliverance’s connection to the Salem witch trials.


It took me a little bit to fall into this book because of the times it switched back to characters that spoke with boston accents or flashing back to puritan times accents.  I could not make out what they were exactly saying sometimes. Once I did connect with the book I begin to love the characters and eventually the magic that joined them all together.


My main dislike is it was to easy to see where the story was going, and who the bad guy was.  There was also some dumb plots points where I felt smarter than Connie.  For one she is in search of Deliverance’s book and does not realize that the different names the book may have as she searches for it. I was practically screaming at Connie, “She is calling the book an almanac now!  Look for almanac now!”  There were so many chapters until she realized just that..


I really did like the characters in the book and way magic is described.  I read recently that the author Katherine Howe is writing a sequel.  I am excited for it because even with the downfalls of the book I still enjoyed it very much.
