The Killbug Eulogies review

The Killbug Eulogies is worldbuilding at its best. 

The story is hardly a single tale. Instead, the book revolves around a troop of soldiers, stranded on a distant world and fighting off an enemy consisting of various intelligent insect species. With the troop’s chaplain dead, the men are told they will eulogize their fallen brothers. So each chapter then is the eulogy of a different man.  
With the story being told about each of the fallen, we learn more about the fate of the Earth, the fate of humanity, and delve into the world of the insects. Each story has its own unique tone, sometimes funny, sometimes melancholy. That is what makes this work so incredibly special, one moment you’re laughing and the next you’re wiping a tear.
Madden took a crazy idea and a difficult and disconnected form of storytelling and knocked out a hit.  This story is a must for Sci-Fi fans.

The Blood in Snowflake Garden is out in audio

The Blood in Snowflake Garden  is out in audio

The audio version of The Blood in Snowflake Garden is finally available. Clark Clayson did a fantastic job as the narrator. His voice provided a unique and some what darker tone for the story. I think you'll enjoy. 
As a bonus to the blog readers, the first 3 folks to email me at and mention the audio book and the blog will get a 'freebie' code to for the book.

Upcoming Stuff

Upcoming Stuff

Some may have noticed that I’ve released very little work over the past year or two. Aside from a few short stories, I’ve written far less than I’d have liked. But, having said that, I’ve not stopped completely.
So what can you expect from me this year? I have short stories, coming up in a pair of anthologies from Pro-Se Productions, hopefully, later this year. One will be another Black Wolfe story in Black Pulp 2. The other will be a World War 1 adventure, featuring the notoriously sexy, Mata Hari.
More exciting is a series of six novellas, being released one a month, starting in August or September of this year. The novellas will feature a Nashville detective named Thomas Dietrich. Set in 1951, Dietrich’s cases deal with the paranormal elements that infest his city. Werewolves, vampires, ghosts and demons, all attempt to find ways to make The Music City a Hell on Earth, but the city has a savior fighting for its very soul.

Dietrich’s Nashville will be a dark noir-styled, paranormal series. If the first set do well, there will be a ‘1952’ series.

On down the road, there are more stories coming. A revamped version of one of my first stories, Kaylana is in the works for both ebook and audio. 

An audio version of History Now is underway. An outline for the next Snowflake Garden book is just waiting on me to pull out of the archives and get started.

Stay tuned for more.
