Greg Carrico is a former Dental and Practice Management Consultant, software trainer, and salesdude. Enduring years of torture in the dental and technology industries uniquely qualified him for his new career of writing horror and dark science fiction stories.

When not creating new worlds and plotting their destruction, Greg reviews indie books at his blog, Live the Story (www.gramico.com/blog). He lives his story in Central New York, with his wife and three small canine overlords, who he faithfully serves by trying to educate people about the horrors of puppy mills, and the joys of adopting the dogs rescued from them.

Alien invasion at its best

This second installment of the alien invasion series is a tense, page-turning, sleep-depriving masterpiece. It captures the human element with characters we came to know and give a damn about in the first book, and delivers

Apocalypstick by Gregory Carrico
"I must say, I was totally hooked in the first few lines of the first story. Very well-written and seriously engrossing. However, I was a bit disappointed with the second story; mostly because I'm not crazy about aliens and whatnot. But I'm keeping..." Read more of this review »
Through the Shimmer of Time by Jennifer  Jensen
"Great middle-grade mystery! I’m 62 so I don’t normally read books aimed at kids, but I was a huge Laura Ingalls Wilder fan as a child and I love mysteries. So when I was offered a copy of this story in exchange for an honest review, I decided to g..." Read more of this review »
Children of the Plague by Gregory Carrico
"The world of Children of the Plague is a fascinating one. The twist on zombies and aliens and the apocalypse is excellent. But I felt as though much of it was left in the author's head and didn't quite translate onto the paper (or screen). The cha..." Read more of this review »
