  1. Nice list! I don't think I've ever read any Bigfoot stories, so I'll be watching to see what you come up with. :)

    1. The Bigfoot War series has been fun. It's nice to see tribes of vicious Sasquatches on a murdering frenzy instead of just one hiding in the trees! A good one to try is Hunter Shea's Swamp Monster Massacre. It's a traditional Bigfoot gorefest.

  2. I really like that you 'theme' your months :D

    'Redneck Apocalypse' sounds pretty entertaining, do you think I can just read it as a stand alone?

    1. I find it helps me if I pick a pile in advance to read. I spend less time wondering what I'm going to read if I have less to choose from! Redneck Apocalypse shows the Sasquatch War starting in Sylva and it continues into Zombie Apocalypse. At the same time Bigfoot War one and two (in the omnibus) cover the main outbreak in Babble Creek. Outbreak covers the outbreak in Asheville at the same time. So they are all interlinked short stories of towns in the area falling to the Sasquatch tribes. I guess you could read one as a seperate story if you wanted to but I'm not sure what you'd get out of it.

    2. Well, I prefer to read chronologically anyways, so I have a look at the first ones in the series, thanks :)

  3. Holy cow! I'm so excited. I see several authors I've read before and some new ones I'll be checking out through your reviews. Bring it on!

    1. Might be a while before I get caught up with reviews for this month...I've still got ones from January to do!

  4. Wow. Good luck. I'm sure you'll read los of good books.

    1. I'm doing well with the Bigfoot and Morganville short stories so far!
