"I wanted to write a tale that reminded me of a ride through a carnival funhouse. Creaking and shaking and rubber-suited booga-booga-boogeymen. This is the one you've been waiting for. If you liked REANIMATOR, TREMORS, or Fulci's ZOMBIE then this books for you. Fun and scary. Pull up a rock and give a listen.

LONG HORN, BIG SHAGGY is absolutely brilliant. A wonderful, twisted tale that's perfect for campfires and stormy nights. Steve Vernon has excelled as a writer and is one of the finest new talents of horror and dark fiction. - Owl Goingback, Bram Stoker Award Winning author of CROTA.

Its cheekbone beneath the eye, sunken like a forgotten prairie grave. Nor its nose, a grotesque splash of flesh spread across the center of its face, with tiny white shards of bone glinting from the raspberryish mess.
It wasn't thinking about much at all, but hunger. A deep empty hunger. The kind of hunger that all the frypans in the world couldn't fix nor fill.

He was mostly eating himself, but he told himself it didn't matter. Sometimes that was all there was left to do...
