Welcome to Brick Marlin's Shadow Out of the Sky Tour!
I have the pleasure of introducing all of you wonderful fans, followers, and friends to Brick Marlin today!
My top ten favorites are split into books and music.
The Long Walk by Stephen King – While many readers latch onto The Stand or Salem's Lot, I'm stuck on loving this dystopian horror.
The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury – I fell in love with this classic tale after watching the television miniseries in 1980.
Lord of the Flies by William Golding – The first time I read this was in middle school. Since then, a decade later, I still read it.
Counter-clock World by Philip K. Dick – PKD’s vision of the future is chilling, especially within the pages of this disturbing tale.
Blues – Little Walter, Big Walter Horton and Paul Butterfield and many other harmonica players have influenced me honing the craft of being a blues musician for the past 20 years.
Metal – Black Sabbath, Accept, Armored Saint and Iron Maiden are only a few bands I grew up listening to.
Hard rock – Queensryche, Van Halen and Dokken come to mind in this genre. More bands I grew up listening to.
Classic Rock – Pink Floyd has to be my all-time favorite band. Ever. I still cannot get enough of this prolific group. I tend to lurk toward their album “Animals”.
Jazz – I love classic jazz as well as fusion, such as Bela fleck and The Flecktones.
About Shadow Out of the Sky:
A scarecrow crucified on a wooden cross made from a pair of two-by-fours sits in a field of corn, placed there to frighten away birds and protect the crops. Under its straw hat large buttons pose as its eyes, placed there by child’s fingers, view something sinister in the grave sky, appearing in front of the full moon. Twisting, it forms into a sleek black mass, peering down upon the town of Woodbury.
Four demons called The Reckoning has pulled this shadow, this urban legend from the past, out of an unmarked grave to bring terror across the planet, shoving it toward an apocalypse. Now it cuts through the air, as if it were opening wounds in flesh, peering down at the first house that it hovers over...
Shadow Out of the Sky is Book One of the Transitional Delusions Series
About the Author:
Brick Marlin has been writing since he was a child. From an early age he was exposed to older horror movies. The great ones making their mark in history. He also tackled reading the likes of Stephen King, Clive Barker, Ray Bradbury, Kurt Vonnegut, Dean Koontz, Charles Dickens, Harper Lee, H.G. Wells, etc. Thus, he decided to engage himself and write horror, dark fantasy and dark sci-fi, scaring readers such as his parents, his friends, neighbors, and even leaving a few school teachers scratching their heads wondering if the boy should be committed or not with his gruesome tales of terror. Short story ideas continued to visit. A book idea or two sometimes stopped by for a sit.
In 2007 he decided to take a more professional approach with his work. Hence, as a member of the Horror Writers Association, already having nine books published by small presses – this you hold in your hand, constant reader, makes his tenth – nearly thirty short stories published, adding to the few anthologies and collaborations with other authors, Brick Marlin trudges onward, hoping to achieve more creations, wallowing in the brain pans of his characters, giving them the choice whether to twist the knob and enter through the Red Door, or enter through the Blue Door where a group of servo monkey badgers are consuming packages of cinnamon-flavored Pop Rock Candy with a Kung Fu Punch of caffeine.
