I've been a fan of Keene's since 2006, when I happened to stroll past "The Conqueror Worms" in my local Borders (truly a sign that this was 5 years ago).

One of the nicest treats in this book is the the final few pages include some poems that Brian Keene worked on in the past. It was a real treat to be able to read Brian Keene's early w
