I had the pleasure of seeing Brick Marlin on some panels at Fandom Fest and this lead me to want to read his work. I am very lucky to be apart of another convention in Louisville, KY called Imaginarium that Brick will also be attending and I wanted to take the time to spotlight an author we are so lucky to have at Imaginarium. The first book I read by Marlin was Blue Lights in a Jar.

Brick Marlin resides in Southern Indiana with his lovely wife, a dog, and a schizophrenic cat while monstrosities from his fiction have taken up residence inside his home throughout the the years, such as a six-foot alarm clock in the shape of a clown, or even servo bed bugs that love masking themselves as Tribbles and tickling him awake in the mornings.
Brick is the author of nine books and over twenty-five short stories including a few published in anthologies. Please visit him at www.brickmarlin.com
I had a feeling I would love this author and I did. Marlin is a intricate writer. He weaves a tale that is an amazing ride. This book was a fascinating take on what the afterlife is like. I was drawn in by the characters who are as detailed and rich as the plot itself. Vergil was so relatable. I found myself truly caring about what would be come of Vergil. The Shepherd was a good and creepy character. I liked that it was a story of good and evil but nothing is quite what you think or expect it to be. It is truly a case of, I think, there is so much more going on then anyone can imagine. Action Packed, Imaginative, Suspenseful and all around great read. Highly Recommend.
