Posted by Dark Whisperer on August 7, 2009
Author: Gerard Houarner
Publisher: Necro Publications
Release Date: September 30th, 2009
A collection of original and reprinted stories about the killers stalking us, and the ones waiting to emerge from the dark corners inside us all.
People are fascinating. Individually, and in groups. Tribes. Collectives.
– A talent of gamblers.
– A den of thieves. A pity of prisoners.
– A blood of killers.
What are they thinking, feeling, what do they do when people are watching, and when they aren’t? What are they capable of? What can they be driven to do?
– The most beautiful acts and works never before imagined, of course.
– The monster terrible and horrific, as well.
– Wonder and terror.
– The question becomes who are we, and who are we standing next to, a human, or a monster?
Some of the answers to that question are in A Blood of Killers.

Whispers about A Blood of Killers…
“Prolific horror author Houarner (The Oz Suite) assembles a disturbing collection of 13 reprints and 12 originals. The bleakness might turn off some readers, but fans of intense, psychology-driven horror and sharp writing will be more than satisfied.” – Publishers Weekly
