My debut novel, We Are Monsters, has been out for just over two weeks and I’m both humbled and completely elated by the positive press it’s received so far. Here are some of the kind things authors and professional critics have had to say:

“Keep an eye on Brian Kirk. His ambitious debut We Are Monsters is a high-voltage thrill, like watching Sam Fuller’s Shock Corridor and Joel Schumacher’s Flatliners on split screens.” -Jonathan Moore, Bram Stoker nominated author of Redheads, Close Reach, and The Poison Artist.

“Brian Kirk’s debut We Are Monsters is a smart, elaborate novel that weaves together the best and worst of us. Complex, terrifying, and still humane, this book moved me to both horror and compassion, and that’s a difficult thing indeed. Easily the best book I’ve read this year.” -Mercedes M. Yardley, author of Pretty Little Dead Girls: A Novel of Murder and Whimsy.

“A tightly woven tale from an author who has a heart, and that makes me excited to see what else Kirk has in store for us. The whole story will have you examining the human race as never before.” -Ginger Nuts of Horror

“Brian Kirk’s debut novel We Are Monsters is a sure bet. A hippy-trippy jaunt that goes deep into the baser things we keep bottled up… and what happens when they’re freed. Highly recommended!” -John F.D. Taff, Bram Stoker nominated author of The End In All Beginnings.

“I can’t praise this book enough!” -Horror Novel Reviews

“Cleverly told. Psychologically complex.” -Scarlet’s Web

“A disturbing, gets-under-your-skin debut novel. I expect to read much more from Kirk in the future.” -Robert Ford, author of The Compound and Samson and Denial.

Thank you to everyone who has read and reviewed the book so far. I’m thrilled to see that so many of you have enjoyed it.
