Smashwords book reviews by Brandon Burkholder

  • Finn's Golem on Dec. 21, 2013
    (no rating)
    More pulpy noir fun from Gregg Taylor. As good as the rest of his stuff.
  • Black Jack Justice on Dec. 21, 2013

    Gregg Taylor does it again. A fun read even if you are not familiar with the Black Jack audio drama. Exciting and funny.
  • The Adventures of Gravedigger on Jan. 07, 2014

    Fun stuff. One of my favorite pulp characters in a while. I can easily see myself getting sucked into Barry's universe. Can't wait for more Gravedigger. My only complaint is a few minor typos.
  • The Adventures of Lazarus Gray on Jan. 14, 2014

    Fantastic. Great heroes, great bad guys. An entertaining read to be sure.
  • Monster Aces on Jan. 15, 2014

    Wildly entertaining. A great group of characters. Each story is as good as the last. Hoping to see more in the future.
  • Black Pulp on Jan. 21, 2014

    The stories in this anthology are as entertaining as they are diverse. With a little touch of history thrown in for good measure. I recommend this to anyone who is even remotely into pulp new or old.
  • Pro Se Presents: August 2011 on Jan. 23, 2014

    Three great stories. Well worth the price. I was abolutely sucked in.
  • Pro Se Presents: November 2011 on Jan. 26, 2014

    A little sci fi, some horror and fantasy, and some japanese bad assery. A great little collection.
  • Black Fedora on Feb. 04, 2014

    A cool trio of stories. Thoroughly enjoyable for any pulp fan. I would love to see another volume.
  • The Pulptress on Feb. 04, 2014

    An interesting collection of stories. It's fun to see different authors take on the same character. I hope to see more.
  • How the West Was Weird on Feb. 09, 2014

    A great collection. Every story was well written and entertaining. The entries from Barry Reese and Derrick Ferguson alone make this a must read in my opinion. Absolutely recommend it for fans of weird fiction.
  • Creeping Dawn: The Rise of the Black Centipede on Feb. 25, 2014

    Wonderful and weird. I highly recommend it!
  • How the West Was Weird: Campfire Tales on April 02, 2014

    A great collection. If you liked the first volume don't hesitate to pick this one up.
  • Flight Twelve Twenty-One on Aug. 27, 2014

    An exciting little thrill ride! Can't wait for more from this author.
  • The Night the Jack O'Lantern Went Out: Lord of the Garden on Aug. 27, 2014

    A wonderfully creepy tale! Looking forward to the next round!
  • Big Ol' Scorpion on Aug. 27, 2014

    A fun homage to giant monsters that seems to serve as an introduction to the protagonist.
  • Bishop & Hancock's Pulse Fiction on Aug. 27, 2014

    The variety and quality of this collection is absolutely superb. Bring on volume 2!
  • Once Upon a Sixgun on Sep. 03, 2014

    Wild west lawmen, deep south rebels, classic fairy tales. Throw it all together and you get some great tales.
  • High Adventure History on Sep. 03, 2014

    A really fun little collection!
  • Rabbit Heart on Sep. 03, 2014

    Disturbingly good. NOT for the faint of heart. Not your typical Barry Reese, more grindhouse than pulp. Dark, creepy, and gory, this one will stick with you for a long, long time.
  • Pulpology on Sep. 03, 2014

    Mythology through the eyes of pulp! A real fun little collection.
  • A Chick, A Dick and a Witch Walk Into a Barn... on Sep. 03, 2014

    Great story. Would love a sequel.
  • Six Guns & Spaceships on Sep. 10, 2014

    A nice mix of sci-fi and wild west, with a pulp flare.
  • Sick Summer Camp (Something Horrific) on Nov. 18, 2014

    Not your typical camp slasher story. A fun little tale.
  • Outhouse on Nov. 20, 2014

    Another fun little chiller from Brown!
  • Tales of the Hanged Man: The Hundred Bones on Nov. 20, 2014

    Spectacular! This is the third "Hanged Man" story that I have read. The other two are in "High Adventure History" and "Rat-a-Tat short blasts of pulp". I am delighted to see a Single Shot series dedicated to this character. Eagerly looking forward to the next one.
  • Magee, Volume 1: Knight From Hell on Nov. 21, 2014

    A fun start to what looks to be a promising series.
  • Magee, Volume 2: The Thundering Monk on Nov. 22, 2014

    Wonderful! Fast paced, intense and at times funny. Looking forward to more Magee.
  • To Love and Die on Nov. 29, 2014

    Romance that has been beaten with a hammer, set on fire, and then shot. From sweet to tragic to utterly depraved, love is hard indeed.
  • Zev Moon on Nov. 29, 2014

    A great mix of sci fi and horror.
  • Tales of the Red Panda: Pyramid of Peril on Nov. 29, 2014

    Another absolutely amazing Red Panda adventure.
  • Golems, Goons and Cold Stone Bitches on Dec. 04, 2014

    Jake is back and he brought the weird with him! A wonderful second entry! Can't wait to see what freaky mayhem he will get into next.
  • The Astonishing Tales of Sherlock Holmes: The Shrieking Pits on Dec. 09, 2014

    As a Holmes fan and a fan of Nikki's Jake Istenhegyi, this was a no brainer for me. A wonderful story with great supporting characters. Highly recommended.
  • The Adventures of Lazarus Gray: The Omnibus Edition on Jan. 09, 2015

    A feast of pulp goodness!
  • The Adventures of Gravedigger, Volume 2 on Jan. 17, 2015

    A great continuation of The Adventures Of Gravedigger and the Sovereign City project. Charity continues her fight against evil and towards redemption. Barry Reese once again brings us heroes to love and villains who you can't wait to see get there ass kicked. Action, adventure, romance and no small amount of bloodshed, a perfect combination for a great thrill ride!
  • Chaos and Doom on Jan. 26, 2015

    A great short story collection. Imaginative and creepy.
  • Magee, Volume 3: Two Souls on Jan. 28, 2015

    I am just absolutely digging this series. This volume was a little shorter than the rest, but it still kicked ass!
  • From the Pen of Adam Lance Garcia, Book 1: Testament on Feb. 04, 2015

    A quite enjoyable short horror tale. Looking forward to more From the Pen of Adam Lance Garcia!
  • Weird Heroes, Book 1: Hairy Shanks on Feb. 04, 2015

    A fun little romp into weirdness.
