Praise for James H. Longmore
“The cast of TENEBRION are not the most likeable, that’s what I liked about it. And the depth Longmore gives them is remarkable. What would surely be another shallow pulp horror novel is elevated by the attention to character detail and the gallows humor he peppers this with. Much like the last thing I read from him, FLANAGAN, Longmore lets his comic side show through at the darkest times. A bloody good time to be had here.” –John Boden, splatterpunkzine
“‘Pede is a sexual, graphical horror novel. The author credits 80s writers and he follows along with a terrific, extreme, novel. There’s plenty of sex (mostly lesbian) and loads of gory violence as a scientific party is attacked by giant centipedes. This book would make an excellent syfy channel film. Loads of fun except for those who dislike gore!” –Pegleg, from Amazon review
