Monstrumfuhrer Reviewed

I like to draw attention to exceptionally insightful reviews, and this one of my Holocaust horror novel Monstrumfuhrer from The European Review Of Speculative Fiction definitely counts. Give it a read. Stuff like this is salve for a writer’s soul.

More of Edward's books…
“All of them were shriveled, desiccated, bone-thin and skeletal, every jaw cruelly broken, opening and closing in mute entreaty, the teeth clacking together like macabre wind chimes as they pendulated in the lurching trees.”
Edward M. Erdelac, Sword & Mythos

“They were marched in an easterly direction down a dirt road into the pitch-black forest, and Barclay was reminded again of a medieval king leading his serfs to some pagan rite. Flanking”
Edward M. Erdelac, Andersonville

“For children are innocent and love justice, while most of us are wicked and naturally prefer mercy.”
G.K. Chesterton

“Words have a force far beyond that of ink stains on pages or spoken sounds... Whether written or spoken, language found in forbidden books can warp space-time and tear the fabric of reality.”
Daniel Harms, The Necronomicon Files: The Truth Behind Lovecraft's Legend

“Normal is an illusion. What is normal for the spider is chaos for the fly.”
Charles Addams

“The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of the infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.”
H. P. Lovercraft, The Call of Cthulhu and Other Weird Stories

“Everybody knocks my female figures. They say they're overblown, that women don't look like that. And I agree. certainly all women don't look like my paintings. But you can't deny some women do look like that. I don't want to paint just another woman. A painting, it's something important; you want to look at it, maybe forever. Who wants to look at just an ordinary hero forever? You want the ultimate, you pull out the stops and do everything in extremes. The extreme in beauty, if it fits; the extreme in ugliness if it fits; the extreme in terror if this is what's required. You know, I think this is one reason that so many people enjoy my stuff, because all of these extremes are jammed into it.”
Frank Frazetta, Icon
