BLOOD: ZBFbooks.com Permuted Press Book of the Week Recommendation 4/21/14

PERMUTED PRESS HEAVY-HITTER SCORES WITH '14'
by
Bowie V. Ibarra


ZBFbooks.com would like to let you know that if you haven't grabbed Peter Clines '14' yet, you're missing out.  The book is not only one of Permuted Press' top titles, but a great example of the craftsmanship of Peter Clines.  The dude sacrificed a lot of comforts to get to where he's at today, and you can find the fruits of those labors in his stories.

The guy is also a top notch, no-bullshit type of dude as well.  I've had the privilege to hang out with him a couple of times.  The guy knows what he's talking about in regards to professionalism and the writing industry and has no problem telling you what you're doing wrong.  But he's also cool enough to help you get it right, or offer sound advice in regards to the business.

Here's a synopsis of the story:

Padlocked doors. Strange light fixtures. Mutant cockroaches.There are some odd things about Nate's new apartment.

Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn't perfect, it's livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don't nag at him too much.

At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela's apartment. And Tim's. And Veek's.

Because every room in this old Los Angeles brownstone has a mystery or two. Mysteries that stretch back over a hundred years. Some of them are in plain sight. Some are behind locked doors. And all together these mysteries could mean the end of Nate and his friends.

Or the end of everything...

Noted authors in the industry have had this to say about his work:

"A riveting apocalyptic mystery in the style of LOST." --Craig DiLouie, author of THE INFECTION and THE KILLING FLOOR

"Takes a well thought concept and creatively expands on it to give the readers an excellent mix of The Twilight Zone, LOST & H.P. Lovecraft..." --Fantasy Book Critic

"A novel that should make Peter Clines a household name among not just horror fans, but fans of good stories, expertly told." --The Guilded Earlobe

"If you enjoy strong characterization and a whirlwind of genre-bending mysteries, you'll probably love the hell out of 14." --SFFaudio

"A wholly original story that weaves together mystery and the apocalypse like a finely tuned band." --Evan Roy, Bricks of the Dead

If you're not following the works of Peter Clines, start doing it now.  They're amazing.
