It won’t be out for a few more months, but here’s what people (the lucky few who’ve read it!) have to say about it already.
“Of the current breed of authors riding the wave of digital liberation, John Taff is a standout talent. Literary, affecting, chilling, and indicative of that old-school mentality meets new-school daring, you need look no further than this collection for evidence that not only is horror not dead, there are new proponents of the craft among us more than capable of giving it the jolt it needs to carry it into the future.” — Kealan Patrick Burke, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of The Turtle Boy, Kin, and Jack & Jill
“The End in All Beginnings is a powerful collection that journeys through the darker side of life’s loves and losses. Past anguish and pain, into realms of repercussions and oblivion.”—Rena Mason, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of The Evolutionist, and East End Girls
“One of our most emotionally engaging and endlessly entertaining writers has offered five wishes to you and all the other rabid readers in the world. What are you waiting for? Read The End in All Beginnings and get them granted. Taff’s mastery over you is such that he can as easily induce deja vu in a nightmare you’ve never had before, as stir your guts with sudden Twilight-Zone panic, using nothing but two boys hanging out in a middle-class kitchen, like kids do. Taff has the rare literary confidence and narrative skill to decide where you will feel what. It’s his choice alone. So what are you waiting for?” —Erik T. Johnson, Author of The Chapman Books
“Taff brings the pain in five damaged and disturbing tales of love gone horribly wrong. This collection is like a knife in the heart. Highly recommended.” –Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of CODE ZERO and FALL OF NIGHT
“With The End in All Beginnings John F.D. Taff sketches a fresh and new blueprint in the canvas that is existential horror, classic sci-fi and post-apocalyptic realness. Taff does not rely on pretense to get his words into the reader’s heads; he relies on natural talent, then laces it with a poet’s wit to keep the reader engaged and focused, but most of all, satisfied. He shocks us as much as he makes us laugh and cry. Purchase The End in All Beginnings now if you know what’s good for you.” —J. Daniel Stone, author of The Absence of Light and the forthcoming Blood Kiss
