"This is a must read for all horror/thriller lovers" -- Brittany Carrigan (http://thecoverbybrittany.blogspot.com/2011/12/slab-by-jeff-mariott...
"I found The Slab
to be an entertaining, thought-provoking and gripping read." -- Paul Dail (http://pauldail.com/2012/01/13/of-mushroom-rvs-and-ancient-evil-a-r...
"If you have ever read and enjoyed those epic horror novels from the 70's and 80's (think Dan Simmons work) where you were immersed in a sprawling world of rich characterization, smart plotting, and enough sub plotting where the horror was deliberately episodic and horrifying, The Slab
will be the perfect read for you." -- TT Zuma at HorrorWorld.org (http://horrorworld.org/hw/2011/12/the-slab/
is one of those books that transports back to a time when you first started to fall in love the genre. It reminds of some of the great horror novels of the '80's. That's not to say the novel feels dated, not by any means. What I'm trying to say, remember those books that had a a roller-coaster fun heart, with a huge cast of characters, that kept you turning each page undr the covers long after your parents told you to go to sleep." -- Ginger Nuts of Horror blog (http://thegingernutcase.blogspot.com/2011/10/slab-by-jeff-mariotte....
"Mariotte manages both thought-provoking juxtaposition and lizard-brain satisfaction as he plays out the large cast of characters across this hard and relentless landscape. His serial killers are just original enough to catch readers by surprise and he neatly ties together the threads of random magic, post-traumatic stress syndrome, a subtle supernatural invasion and an upper-class attack on a lower class landscape." -- Rick Kleffel (http://trashotron.com/agony/reviews/2003/mariotte-the_slab.htm
And, not reviews but blurbs upon the original publication:
"In The Slab
, Mariotte grabs the reader's mind bare-handed and drags you through the unraveling of human interactions. It's insightful, potent, powerful--and downright creepy. Not only is The Slab
a microcosm of the dark side of human nature, it's also a ripping good thriller." -- Kevin J. Anderson, bestselling author of Terra Incognita
, The Saga of Seven Suns
, and the Dune
"Mariotte is an author with vision. His prose is striking, his plots involving, his characters identifiable. He knows how to move an audience--and how to strike absolute terror in their hearts. If you're not reading his work, you should be. I highly recommend The Slab
--Scott Ciencin, bestselling author of The Vampire Odyssey
So if for some reason you haven't yet read this classic of contemporary horror, there'll never be a better (cheaper) time.
