We Are Monsters is fantastic — a frightening and intense thriller and one hell of a debut. I was blown away. Brian Kirk is exactly what readers need — a talented new voice with original, awe-inspiring ideas that can push the genre forward.” Brian Keene, best-selling author of Ghoul and The Rising

“Not only is this one of the most impressive horror debuts I have ever read, I am confident in placing We Are Monsters firmly in the number one spot for the best horror novel of 2015. I was absolutely blown away.” The Horror Bookshelf

“Brian Kirk’s debut We Are Monsters is a smart, elaborate novel that weaves together the best and worst of us.

Yardley, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Pretty Little Dead Girls and Little Dead Red

“A stark and frightening novel. Horror fans should definitely seek this one out.” Booklist

“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

“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

“A gorgeous display of conceivable terror that resonates long after reading.” Horror Novel Reviews

“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

“A knockout punch for Kirk, this is a book–and an author–that we’ll be hearing a lot more about in the future.” Shotgun Logic

“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
