Great Review for Kill/Off!



My thriller, Kill/Off, has just received an awesome review by the inestimable Gabino Iglesias.  Gabino has reviewed my work before.  He’s a lead reviewer over at HorrorTalk, and also for the gun’s-and-noir site Out of the Gutter Online.  His review for Kill/Off just appeared today.

Here’s a bit of it:  “Horror authors branching out and writing crime is not a new thing. However, given the differences between the genres, I’m a bit worried every time a horror author whose work I enjoy decides to change supernatural elements for guns. Sure, writing chops are writing chops regardless of genre, but treating each with the knowledge and respect they deserve is a different thing. John F.D. Taff is an outstanding voice in horror fiction, but when he published Kill/Off, his first crime novel, I felt the usual doubts creep in. Luckily, Taff delivered a great narrative packed with suspense and hidden agendas.”

Outstanding.  Go over to Out of the Gutter Online to read the entire review.

And head over to Amazon to pick up a copy of Kill/Off.  Please.  Ain’t gonna lie to you.  This book is struggling.  I think it might have to do with my straying from the horror genre and trying to find a whole new audience with this one.  But that doesn’t need to be.  OK, it’s not supernatural in any way, but it’s still horrific.  I think anyone who liked any of my work will enjoy Kill/Off.  So give it a try.  I think you’ll like it! Gabino did!
