Bill Crider, Roger Smith and Paul Tremblay on Monster--A Novel of Frankenstein

Zeltserman got a lot of acclaim for his horror novel The Caretaker of Lorne Field. Monster is a very different kind of book, but it's just as exciting. When awards season rolls around, this one's going to be a major contender. -- Bill Crider, author of the Sheriff Dan Rhodes (read Bill's entire review here)

MONSTER is a brilliant reimagining of Frankenstein: faithful enough to delight lovers of Mary Shelley's masterpiece, but wonderfully inventive as it takes the monster (Friedrich Hoffmann) on a bloody quest for vengeance. As he hunts Victor Frankenstein he encounters vampyrs, monks, Satanists, and (memorably)the Marquis de Sade. By far Zeltserman's best work, and that's saying something.-- Roger Smith, author of Wake Up Dead and Dust Devils

Dave Zeltserman continues to expertly explore the depths of darkness with MONSTER. This brutal, clever retelling of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein pits Victor Frankenstien and the infamous evil of the Marquis de Sade versus the most famous resurrected-man-turned-creature who only longs to avenge the murder of his fiance. MONSTER shocks and rampages as well as it deftly entertains.--Paul Tremblay, author of The Little Sleep and In The Mean Time
