***UPDATE: Giveaway has been extended until February 12, 2013.***

In conjunction with our podcast interview with author Jeff (J. Scott) Savage, we are giving away three books: two copies of Case File 13: Zombie Kid and one copy of Dark Memories. See below for details!

*****

You hold in your hands a very dangerous record.

I have collected every side of the story and every piece of evidence on case number 13. Now, in this file, you will find all you need to follow the dark adventures of Nick, Carter, and Angelo, three boys who possess an unhealthy obsession with monsters, in a town so grisly, so horrific—

Whoa, whoa, whoa. You’re telling it all wrong, dude. You make it sound like it’s a scary story.

Ahem. Well, Nick, it is a scary story. In this volume alone, there are voodoo queens, graveyards—even the dreaded Zombie King himself.

Yeah, but there’s also the part where Angie gets mashed potatoes all in her face, and the part where I use my cool zombie powers to—

All right, point taken. Now, if you don’t mind . . .

You hold in your hands a very dangerous, very funny record, detailing the hilarious adventures of three boys who have an awesome obsession with monsters. This is the first volume. Read on if you dare. . . .

*****

There are things in the darkness—things much worse than the tracks and abandoned pieces of equipment that trip the children up and gash at their feet and legs—things that brush silently past them, touching their faces before disappearing again.

1977—In the sleepy Town of Twin falls, Colorado, what starts as a carefree school picnic ends in tragedy when six children disappear into an abandoned gold mine. Six enter the dark void—and days later, only five emerge. After an arduous search, the hunt for the last child is called off and the mine entrance is blasted. Little Frankie is left behind, alone in the darkness.

He is coming.

2011—Police Chief Cal Hunt’s investigation into the recent string of bizarre murders in Twin Falls takes a chilling turn when he learns that each of the victims was a survivor of the Seven Stars mine incident. Cal realizes that they share a dark secret—the truth about what happened to Frankie.

To drag them deeper.

With time running out for the remaining survivors, Cal must face a killer that defies all logical explanation. Because no matter how Cal analyzes the facts, there is only one conclusion: A supernatural force is reaching out from the depths to reclaim those who escaped more than thirty years before. And it will not rest until it takes them all . . .

Into the darkness.

  1. My son, Ayden, loves zombie kid. Its all he talks about. :)

  2. I would read Case File 13: Zombie Kids. This looks like the type of book a lot of my students in my class would like to read and I would like to read it first so I can tell them about it and recommend it to certain ones. It also looks like a great book for struggling readers. I am excited to check it out soon! And I plan on listening to your podcasts soon (which I love and am so glad that you are back to doing podcasts regularly again!) Thanks!

  3. I just finished the 2 podcasts and really enjoyed the discussions you had. It was fun to hear the three books he had just read, maybe this is something you can do with other authors in the future.

  4. Far World is my favorite Savage book. I’m really looking forward to Case Files though. That looks fun :) The Savages are such nice people. I really enjoyed the interview.
