Day of the Dread

We’re not much into the quintessential “page-turner” – too many exhaustive strands of unimaginative dialogue and predictable cliffhanging endings to chapters – but Scott Sigler, acclaimed horror-story author of such reads as Infected, just cranked one out. Titled Contagious, it’s filled with creepy characters and a super-crayzee plot structure in which people’s life spans are measured in mere hours. Plus, the book has been called “a marvel of gonzo, in-your-face, up-to-the-minute terror.”

The writer and “failed pimp” reads from and signs copies of his tomes at Changing Hands Bookstore.
