"With Looking at the World with Broken Glass in My Eye,Mark Justice has given us a genuine gift; by turns funny, horrifying, heartbreaking, and just plain weird, this is a real showcase collection, and a feast for readers. You never know from one tale to the next what he’s going to hit you with, and it’s that very unpredictability that makes this book so much more than the mere sum of its often-brilliant parts. Justice has a keen and unflinching eye for the telling details of human (and un-human) behavior, and a poet’s economy with words. There is not a wasted syllable to be found between these covers, and at times I felt as if I were being given a writing lesson. I cannot imagine anyone reading powerhouse stories such as “Black Wings” and the hands-down masterpiece “Father’s Day” without feeling envious that they didn’t write them. I expected this collection to be good; I didn’t expect it to knock my socks off and leave me so wrung out. This is what short fiction should be but too often isn’t. If you don’t get this collection, your life is going to be all the poorer for it—and I’ve never said that about a book before.”

Gary A. Braunbeck, winner of the Bram Stoker Award and International Horror Guild Award, and author of To Each Their Darkness and A Cracked and Broken Path 

REVIEWS For Deadneck Hootenanny:

“Mark Justice has taken two horror tropes and rang some fresh changes on them. His ‘Deadnecks’ will not only make you laugh, but you’ll find yourself actually caring about some of them. I loved this book because this guy is a lot more than clever--he’s a good writer.”

—Thomas F. Monteleone Author of a Lot of Stuff


“What Shawn of the Dead did for the English, Deadneck Hootenanny has done to Dixie. And what a lively place this undead Dixieland truly is: the jokes in this book come right at you, over and again, like the machete arms of a very hungry zombie -- and you will laugh yourself silly at how much it tickles while they scoop out your brains. But it’s the characters that will win you over, and that’s what makes this book better than the usual “redneck zombie” fare. I don’t know how Mark Justice knows what it’s like to live inside the head of an undead hillbilly, but he’s nailed it perfectly. Deadneck Hootenanny is hilarious fun.”

— Michael Arnzen, author of Licker

“If you think Joe Lansdale has gotten entirely too serious—seek justice. If you’re not too keen on zombie extravaganzas that lead you on only to leave you hanging with the hero smashing into his ex-wife’s house to rescue his son from a horde of ravenous zombies and then you have to buy yourself the next book in the series to find out if he makes it or not—seek justice. If you think the darkest aspect of Romero’s outlandish zombie resurrection was Dennis Hopper’s nasal rooting over acting beady eyed stare—seek justice. If you’re wondering what could possibly result from the genetic crossing of a zombie, an owl and a nanny goat—seek justice. If you hanker for a couple of back-from-the-dead backwoods heehaw my-name-is-earl zombie close encounters of the fifty third variety—seek out Mark Justice’s brand new novella from Novello (the folks who put the big “O” in novella) Publisher’s Deadneck Hootenanny. The world may never be the same.”
— Steve Vernon, author of Nothing To Lose by Nocturne Press

“The South will rise . . . from the dead! Just when I thought nothing new could be done with that ole’ zombie sub-genre, DEADNECK HOOTENANNY comes shambling along and proves to be the most fun I’ve had with a book in a long time! Mark Justice writes like a cross between Joe R. Lansdale and Edward Lee, hopped up on some really raunchy rotgut whisky--don’t miss this one, y’all!”
— James Newman Author of MIDNIGHT RAIN and THE WICKED
