Jesus and John by Adam McOmber
"Reading this was such a strange, unique experience, even being familiar with McOmber's other published works and recognizing many of the themes. It builds slowly but, paradoxically, with a sense of impatience or desperation. And then the final quarte" Read more of this review »

Jesus and John by Adam McOmber
"We all know the traditional Easter story, not the one about bunnies and eggs, but the equally fantastic one about Jesus rising from the grave, ascending the physical world and achieving salvation for our entire species.

Chthonic by Scott R. Jones
"This was a book that forced me to dig deep, pun intended.

“I had no lock that could be picked. If anything, I was the landscape behind the door, and even on that day in the ruin, I was still only beginning to comprehend my own flora and fauna.”
Adam McOmber, The White Forest

“Just before he passed behind the hedge at the end of the drive, he turned to look back at Stoke Morrow and caught me spying on him. His shining eyes were so cruel, and before I could close the curtain, I saw the flash of an awful grin on his face. It was a grin that said he knew I'd come around. Sooner or later, I'd fall in line.”
Adam McOmber, The White Forest

“I was familiar with the realms of unnatural, for I myself was an unnatural. Not a monster in appearance; I looked like other young women, though perhaps not as primped and manicured. But I wasn't the same as other girls. My friends believed I was sick or gifted. Either way, I was unfortunate. Something entirely new upon the earth.”
