The Sci-Fi Guys have put out their list of the The Best of 2011: Books, and my two Harmony, Indiana novels, The Wide Game and Cinema of Shadows, both made the list! 

Cinema of Shadows came in at number 9.  Here’s what they had to say about it:

Cinema of Shadows was everything that I could want in a ghost story: an intelligent professor with a sordid past, a group of teenagers searching for answers in a Ghost Adventures fashion, a haunted movie theater, a well paced story, and an exorcism from Hell. Plus a few familiar faces. Cinema of Shadows did not disappoint.”

And where did The Wide Game come in?  Why all the way up at number 2!   Here’s what Sci-Fi guys had to say about it:

The Wide Game takes the reader back to a time when horror was thriving. Back to a time where storytellers and Hollywood didn’t rely on gratuitous violence and stupid gore to shock the consumer. Back to a time when this novel would have easily made the New York Times, and quite possibly rivaled the newest Stephen King title.”

With all the books released in 2011, it would have been an honor just to have one of my titles make a year-end “best of” list, but to have both of my Harmony, Indiana books appear on a list with the likes of Joe R. Lansdale and Brian Keene…words cannot describe!

You can read the full list here!

The Wide Game is available from Graveside Tales Books.

And Cinema of Shadows is available in paperback and e-book from Seventh Star Press.  There may even be a few signed, limited edition hardcovers available if you act fast!

And to all my faithful readers out there, if you thought 2011 was something, wait until you see what I have in store for 2012!
