About the Book    About the Author

"Cross Larry the Cable Guy with The Dresden Files, and you have Bubba the Monster Hunter"

"Reminds be a bit of Ash from Army of Darkness"

"Hartness spins another tale of redneck mayhem full of his usual sarcastic humor."

He's big, he's bad and he's here to save the day. From the author of The Black Knight Chronicles comes a new series of supernatural comedy with a Johnny Cash soundtrack and a Kevin Smith twist.Meet Bubba the Monster Hunter, a 6'5" 340-pound hero for the working man. If it goes bump in the night, Bubba'll kill it. Vampires, Zombies, Ghouls, Werewolves, Ghosts, Witches, Warlocks, whatever. If it can be shot, he'll shoot it. If it can be hit, he'll hit it. And if there's a payday involved, he's on the case. In this first Bubba the Monster Hunter story, everybody's favorite redneck is chasing zombies through the hills of Tennessee. Follow Bubba through beer joints, strip clubs and graveyards as he and his best helper Bertha (a .50 Desert Eagle Pistol) make sure that what's dead, stays dead. Fans of The Black Knight Chronicles, The Dresden Files, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Larry the Cable Guy are sure to love this rollicking new series.

Voodoo Children is a short story, about 6,000 words

Editorial Reviews

"Great Slash and Laugh"

It took me about forty minutes to read this redneck killing zombies in a graveyard tale, and at first I had some doubts about where the author was taking this story. It seemed crude, disjointed, graphic and disgusting, and even a trifle weird. And every one of these things ended up working in the story's favor.The author, I think, intended this to be more funny than serious, and he succeeded. When a redneck turns into a counselor and soothes the zombie-making voodoo priest, and helps the distressed young man see the light of day, what's not to laugh at? And when he kindly gives this same murderous voodoo priest a wad of cash, in exchange for the kids magic books and chicken foot, just so the girlfriend can get a boob job, time to think this is serious is ended for good.I have always found zombie movies and stories hysterically funny. No matter how scary or gross they are supposed to be, I just find rotting humans as mindless killers to be amusing.This story was amusing, but not because of the zombies. The character interactions at the end made the story for me. For those seeking zombie action, don't worry, there's no shortage of that, nor lack of pure firepower and weapons usage as Bubba battles bad things.I highly enjoyed this, and you will too.
