Here is the highest compliment I can give THE STRAIN: Its distracting me from my newborn son!
Good thing I am a multitasker and can find a way to love two things at once!
Seriously, though. Harper Collins is going to start ramping up a serious marketing campaign for this Vampire Horror meets CSI novel by Guillermo and Chuck Hogan. If the word gets out, I think it is going to be a SMASH hit. I’m only half-way through it, and its already one of the most entertaining horror novels I’ve read in a long time. Probably the last one I enjoyed as much as this one was I AM LEGEND, which I read about five years ago.
I’ll save my review for when it is finished, but for right now I can only say that is satisfying my every expectation -namely, bizarre horror, vampire autopsies, and thrilling suspense. What more do you want?
Well, how about some trademark Del Toro motifs? Die hard fans will spot’em right away.
THE STRAIN comes out June 2nd. You can preorder it from the DTF Store here.
