Cockroach Suckers

Rated 4.50/5 based on 2 reviews
When Bobby Lee shows up at Jasper's fruit stand with something big and covered in a tarp in the back of his truck, things start getting a little weird. From giant statues pulled out of the Great Dismal Swamp, to roadside attractions and ancient Lovecraftian-style gods, the two friends find themselves in way over their heads.

Includes the novella DEEP BLUE More

Really entertaining story.

Review by: Jonathan Condliffe on May 18, 2010 :
I'm a sucker (see what I did there?) for a good cockroach tale...memories of "They Nest", "Creepshow" and Roger Corman's "The Nest" all hold places in my heart.
Add a splash of Lovecraft and I'm in heaven. This relatively short tale takes elements from both and adroitly mixes them up with a smattering to genuinely pleasing "red-neck" humour. I read it in minutes but some of the imagery still lingers, a real sense of dread colours this nicely layered story and the end ing is not one I expected being somehow more subtle (if a tale of giant cockroach Gods can be subtle.
Highly recommended and works perfectly on my Kindle.
