BOOK REVIEW

NAME OF THE BEAST by Daniel Easterman
Released: Dec. 1, 1992

"Lacking the frenzied, cliffhanging action of Easterman's best (The Seventh Sanctuary; The Ninth Buddha) and distressingly anti- Muslim; but, still, a steadily gripping, evocative nightmare that will have millennialists looking anxiously at their calendars."
The Antichrist rises again—but for once the Beast is in capable hands. Read full book review >

NIGHT OF THE APOCALYPSE by Daniel Easterman
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: May 24, 1995

"Utterly seductive twaddle that pits semi-complex protagonists against one another in dubious battles rooted in rule-or-ruin religious and secular hatreds."
A master of unholy terror, Easterman (The Judas Testament, 1994, etc.) makes effective use of a fire-obsessed name-brand villain in a vast conspiracy thriller whose good guys are as vicious as their abominable adversaries. Read full book review >

HUMPTY DUMPTY by Daniel Kirk
CHILDREN'S
Released: May 1, 2000

"The cut-out photos of faces and other details tucked into Kirk's (Moondogs, 1999, etc.) tidy, smooth-surfaced paintings will prompt double takes from viewers, and some chuckles, but the trite plot and long, monotonously rhymed text will get a polite reception at best. (Picture book. 4-6)"
