Harvey by Phil Rossi

Television singing sensation Calvin Hubbard has been caught with his hand in cookie jar. An illicit affair with a contest judge costs him not only the competition crown, but his musical credibility as well. Fleeing the media fallout, Calvin exiles himself to the backwoods town of Harvey, Virginia. With a little solitude and a lot of cheap beer, he plans to write the next great rock and roll album and resurrect his career. But Calvin doesn’t know that a man has just been buried alive in the woods outside of town, and that this quiet murder is just the first in a string of macabre events. As the town goes silently mad around him, Calvin is unable to abandon the record of his dreams. Drunk on inspiration and blinded by an inexplicable lust, he careens headlong into the maelstrom, only to discover that he may be the town’s only salvation. Something is alive in the trees—an ageless, nameless evil—and it’s coming for everyone in Harvey. Now Calvin has to decide whether to run or to stay and fight… if it isn’t already too late.
“…sexy and full of scares. Harvey is dark, well-crafted, and downright menacing.” -Philippa Ballantine, award-winning author of Chasing the Bard
Phil Rossi breaks new ground with Harvey–visit http://www.harveythenovel.com for the Harvey Sessions–the very album that Calvin Hubbard is composing and recording at the Little Rock Motel. Listen as the record’s tracks take form and evolve from idea, to demo, to fully arranged song as impacted by the events in the novel.

Fried Green Zombies by John A. Allen


Chett and Harry are two recently unemployed construction workers on their way to a weekend of beer, Southern Comfort, and frog gigging at their musty-rusted 1970’s RV parked at their favorite hunting camp when they stumble on Bob, the mysterious, busty, burqa-clad, non-English speaking beauty just standing in the middle of nowhere on the side of dusty Nine Mile Cutoff in rural Bovina, Mississippi.

Then all hell breaks loose. Their favorite pond is missing. They’re being chased by truck driving zombies, dirty cops, UFOs and other ne’er-do-wells. Someone stole Chett’s jacked up Scottsdale four-by-four. Zombies are traipsing around their trailer, and crazy Uncle Crank is trying to feed them zombie chicken for dinner.

Aided by a classic computer nerd, a crazy man wielding a frying pan, and a space babe who gets nekkid any time someone turns out the lights, follow Chett and Harry as they battle their way across the rural countryside and ultimately save the world.

Why is their pond missing, and why did the Dodge of Death spring from the muddy crater left in its center?  Who is Bob and why is she so good with shotguns? Why are they being chased by two really skinny, pale, bald, goatee-clad wierdo’s?  What is the dirty county sheriff hiding?  And will Chett and Harry ever make it out alive?

Warning rated R for Textual Nudity, Language, and Graphic Violence!

TruckerRich Says: I really liked Jon Allen’s Zombie story. The characters voices were a bit twangy at first, once you got use to them, they were entertaining. This was a very interesting Zombie story that was fun to listen to. I hope John comes out with some more Podiobooks soon.

You can get Fried Green Zombies from: iTunes or Podiobooks

CONTAGIOUS by Scott Sigler

Across America, a mysterious pathogen transforms ordinary people into raging killers, psychopaths driven by a terrifying, alien agenda. The human race fights back, yet after every battle the disease responds, adapts, using sophisticated strategies and brilliant ruses to fool its pursuers. The only possible explanation: the epidemic is driven not by evolution but by some malevolent intelligence.

Standing against this unimaginable threat is a small group, assembled under the strictest secrecy. Their best weapon is hulking former football star Perry Dawsey, left psychologically shattered by his own struggles with this terrible enemy, who possesses an unexplainable ability to locate the disease’s hosts. Violent and unpredictable, Perry is both the nation’s best hope and a terrifying liability. Hardened CIA veteran Dew Phillips must somehow forge a connection with him if they’re going to stand a chance against this maddeningly adaptable opponent. Alongside them is Margaret Montoya, a brilliant epidemiologist who fights for a cure even as she reels under the weight of endless horrors.

These three and their team have kept humanity in the game, but that’s not good enough anymore, not when the disease turns contagious, triggering a fast countdown to Armageddon. Meanwhile, other enemies join the battle, and a new threat — one that comes from a most unexpected source — may ultimately prove the most dangerous of all. Visit www.scottsigler.com For iTunes

TruckerRich Says: Contagious is the sequel to Scott’s Awesome story Infected. As of December 7th it is now live and available for your listening pleasure. Contains Mature Situation, Language and Lots and Lots of Violence! Listener Discretion is Advised…

CONTAGIOUS the book is available for purchase.

INFECTED by Scott Sigler




Perry Dawsey is 6-foot-5, 265 pounds of angry ex-linebacker. He knows all too well that if he doesn’t control his quick temper, people get hurt. Through constant focus, he has locked his violent past away in the deep dungeons of his mind. The infection changes everything. Strange microscopic parasites tap into Perry’s bloodstream like tiny little vampires. They start as bright orange blisters, but soon take the shape of triangular growths just beneath his skin. The “Triangles,” as Perry calls them, try to control their host by manipulating hormone levels and flooding his body with neurotransmitters — imbalances of which cause paranoia, schizophrenia and excessive aggression. As Perry begins a desperate battle to cut the Triangles out of his body before it’s too late, his self-control dissolves into raging, murderous madness.

TruckerRich Says: With the up and coming release of the sequel to Infected,” Contagious”. I again listened to this Awesome story. It was rerecorded by Scott when it was released in hardcover. In true Sigler style this novel contains mature situations and language and lots and lots of violence. Listener discretion advised.

Cemetery Things by Keith Latch



Copyright 2006-2007 Keith Latch.  All rights

The Devil’s Graveyard has been, for one hundred years, a place of horror, of
gruesome murders, and of terrible mutilations. Life after life has been taken
within its crumbling walls. For too long the locals have allowed this place to
take their loved ones.

But one murder too many causes action. The death of a teenager  spurs his
family and the local authorities into action. Armed with little more than myth
and superstition, the time for a showdown is long overdue.

Can loyalty, love and the indomitable human spirit overcome the evil that lurks
and feeds among the graves?

There are good things, bad things, and then there are cemetery things.

Truckerrich says: Great tale of things from the Cemetery. Not for the Squimish or easily offended  If you like stuff like this, you will like this story.

The Hell Hole Tavern By Mark Eller

What the Hell are you doing here. Tourists? Well, business is slow so you might as well come in. I’m Baron Von Smelterhoffen. My friend over there is Lizard. This is our tavern, The Hell Hole Tavern. We don’t normally cater to your type–innocent mortals. We like murderers and assassins. We prefer hellhounds and demons and other hellkind. Our kind. Not seeing many of them anymore. They’ve gotten a bit scarace since the wars. Hardly anybody dies in here, barely three or four a week, so you should be safe enough. Come on. Step in. If you dare.

Warning: Recommended for Adult Audiences Only!!!!!!

TruckerRich Says: The intro and outro are a bit Qwirky, Preverse and Profound. Lizzy and the Baron cut it up a bit ( they cut up a few tourists too). The stories which are a group of short stories following different characters. Very well written and read, I have enjoyed the stories and how they came together.

You can find them at The Hell Hole Tavern or iTunes.
