Image   This time you dive back to the beginning; the beginning for Jake that is. More than a prequel, BLACK TIDE is a freakquel of things to come.

    Black Water Books has just published the third book, BLACK TIDE, of my ‘anoxic zone’ series. It is available in all the e-book forms at this time through, Amazon, b&n, and others. The hard copies will come when we get our final permission from Roger Waters to use a quote from one of his songs. However hardcopies for sale in the USA will be available any moment!!!

   Okay, I’m stoked, who wouldn’t be? BLACK TIDE is a worthy addition to ‘anoxic Zone’ and ‘Halocline’. With enough mayhem and gore to satisfy even the bloodthirstiest of readers BLACK TIDE rips corporate reality a new one. Jake is up against the darkest horrors of our imagination… ourselves and what we have become.

   No punches have been held in the writing of Black Tide. The language is as visceral as the characters’ circumstance. Be ready for a dive into hell from which there is no return.



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.


  1. All three books, ‘anoxic zone’, ‘Halocline’, and ‘Black Tide’ have become an epic batlle between the darker side of ourselves and, well, the people we think we are. It’s the humor that keeps the stories from flipping. Most of it is black ( I mean what else could it be) but it still makes me laugh and you will too. Enter a most unusual realm. Take a plunge into some of the goriest reads ever and live to laugh about them. Enjoy!
