A Little bit about Horror author William Tooker and also a review of "Slouching Toward Bethlehem - V1-Bad Angels":


William is originally from Ohio. After college at The Ohio State University Will has lived in San Francisco, Ca and Oakland, CA. After a brief pit stop back in Ohio William lived for a time in Clearwater, Florida and Denver Colorado. His interest in horror started at age 13 when seeing Don Coscarelli's Phantasm in his hometown theater for the first time. Later that year he had the bejesus scared out of himself reading The Amityville Horror. Although Roger Zelazney's Chronicles of Amber were the works that made him want to be a writer he has learned character development by reading Stephen King, learned to color outside the lines from reading Clive Barker and Glen Cook. After Slouching Towards Bethlehem" is over Will is starting on an ongoing novel series with a modern day gang war among sorcerers. If you've stopped by the profile stop and say Hi! I love meeting fans.

"The start of his story is nasty, but those who know how much I like horror and dark fantasy can understand what I mean when I say that is a good thing. The terror is tangible and the description of the creature involved delightfully disgusting.  We unravel more of the mystery as to why Charity was in trouble in the first place, why an "angel" is coming to her defence, and why she has been unwilling to accept help from others. The story has all the strong points I look for when I read, excellent characterization, description that captures the moment but isn't excessive and several interesting twists. This is not a tale for those easily offended by mature content and violence, but for those who enjoy a dark and edgy tale, like me, it's a great read." -a review on Goodreads
