Probably the best of the Bigfoot books. It's funny, there are no long boring speculative lectures on the feeding and mating habits of Bigfoot, English grammar is treated with respect, and Bigfoot doesn't rape anyone. In terms of Bigfoot fiction, that ...more

Nice violent Bigfoot action but not much of a book. Mostly people sleeping with each other and trying to figure out if it’s Bigfoot who's suddenly turned into an anti-gun activist or maybe just a really angry deer.

“Let's make sure it's really raining before we worry about floods.”

“I love you, Gretchen Lang. You are my reflection and my shadow and I will not let you go. We are bound together forever and ever! Until Halley’s Comet comes around again. I love you dearly and I love you queerly and no demon is bigger than this!”
Grady Hendrix, My Best Friend's Exorcism

“The problem was the liars. They said she could do anything she set her mind to, they told her she should shoot for the moon because if she missed she’d be among the stars, they made movies tricking her into thinking she could achieve heroic things. All lies. Because she was born to answer phones in call centers, to carry bags to customers’ cars, to punch a clock, to measure her life in smoke breaks. To think otherwise was insane.”
Grady Hendrix, Horrorstör

Oh, thanks! That's really nice of you! I'm so glad you liked the first book and I hope you're not disappointed in the second. I think you'll have fun with it!
