Aloha from john g rees, author of ‘anoxic zone’ and ‘Halocline’!

Welcome to my world. Those of you that have read my books catch the drift. Those that haven’t, you really should dip your eyes into the dark prose. Sometimes it gets a little too real, even for me. The stories don’t push the envelope, they more explode all over you. It get’s a little messy. The heavy-handed vulgarity, drug use, and impalings have a point. Okay, maybe I push it a little too far. But in order to rattle the reader in these days of gratuitous violence, sex and aliens, you sort of have to. And though the point may be buried deep inside someone, it’s there.

Always in the background of the first two novels is the corporation, in this case Megacorp. Greed drives its M.O. and there is no limit. This is far scarier to me than the Vlad that I have created, because it is happening now. The third book reveals among other things an evisceration of the corporate giant. Does it get killed? Good question. Answers are given that create more questions as we learn the background and makings of Jake and Johnny.

One of my readers says it ‘rocks’. I’ll take her word for it.

‘Black Tide’ is shooting for a late fall release and we at Black Water Books are pretty stoked about it.

About john g rees

John g rees is not your average horror writer. Not your average martyr either. After the death of his father and that of a close friend, john found the release he was loooking for and started writing. Born in the Midwest some half-century ago to two soon-to-be morticians, one can see where his ‘dead pan’ humor truly came from. Playing amongst the caskets and his catholic school upbringing underscore much of his work. He went through many types of employment. Moving west first to San Francisco, finally making his home in the Hawaiian Islands, john g rees has worked in many diverse, yet tangent fields: from the repair of Ferraris to the repair of underwater dock pilings; painting houses to painting ship zincs; general construction to general salvage diving on many sized ships - working out of Pearl Harbor for a while, on Navy vessels, some top secret. He has traveled the world looking for work and play in out of the way places. Never finding what he expects. He likes it that way. He has been happily married for 20 years.
