Today’s stories of alien abduction and experimentation include temporary embryonic implantation.

It's always a bit awkward reviewing horror, a genre that depends so much on surprise, shock, and unanticipated events. It's hard to say much without tipping off readers and spoiling the reading experience.

THE SIXTH SEED features alien abductions, mad doctors, and mysterious pregnancies are common fare for many horror novels, but toss in precarious finances, health insurance, a meddling mother-in-law, incompetent managers, and a job from hell and it's a tough call to say where the real horror li...more

The first chapter of this book hooked me in (ouch!) and Howard's style of prose is very clean and fast to read. I expected far more horror, and was pleasantly surprised that nothing truly graphic jumped out at me (I'm not a fan of that, sorry.) so it's a "safe" pick for non-horror readers.

Add in financial and family responsibilities and I'm begging for the aliens to come and take me.

As you can guess, and without giving away too many major plot points, the aliens and their human liaisons are not the biggest bad guys in this story. Greedy boss...more
Although there were some grammatical errors in the writing, I actually really enjoyed this story. It is easy to read, not really a horror in my view, but slightly unsettling and I loved the ending. Based on this novel, I'd probably read more from this author.
