My buddy, Jim Gavin, just released his first novel. He’s one helluva writer with a great voice, so check it out. These are the promotional blurbs for the book, including one by yours truly:
“Hard Boiled Vampire Killers” is a rip-roaring, gun-slinging, ass kicking, Kung Fu, vampire and ghost extravaganza that does not disappoint and is a welcome addition to the genre. If you are tired of romantic, wimpy, depressing sparkly vampires look no further than Jim Gavin’s exceptional “Hard Boiled Vampire Killers” to get your fill of vampires that are actually vampires…it might just be the most fun I have had reading a book this year.” –Peter Schwotzer, Famous Monsters of Filmland
“Hard Boiled Vampire Killers” is about alliances formed under duress, and freaks and geeks uniting for a lofty purpose. Jim Gavin’s spin on the material possesses spunk and Stamina in its verbal vigor, and fun fantastical frays… –Sheila Merritt, Hellnotes
“Pulp is alive and well in the heart and fingertips of Jim Gavin, With HBVK, Gavin comes out swinging, delivering a superior first novel. Explosive, demanding, and very rewarding.” –Andersen Prunty, author of Morning is Dead
“Jim Gavin’s Hard Boiled Vampire Killers is a welcome change from everything I have come to expect from the modern vampire story. It was also a bloody good time!” –Brian Knight from the introduction of Hard Boiled Vampire Killers
“Of all the young writers I’ve read recently, Jim Gavin has my favorite narrative voice. It’s fresh, witty, biting, and moves with a dizzying speed that engage me like few others. His work is gritty and visceral, hearkening back to the detective novels of the 40’s and 50’s. I highly recommend his work to anyone who loves the power and majesty of well-crafted language.”–D.A. Adams, author of The Brotherhood of Dwarves series
