Take a tour of unseen Vegas -- the dirty underworld only the dead can see... What would you do if your career began with promise, if your plans for life seemed well on their way, but, due to your own mistakes, the bottom suddenly dropped out? What if that clean, prosperous, happy family life was lost, and you were left to slide deeper and deeper into the “underground”, each strange job more obscure and bizarre than the next? Where would you land? How long could you stomach that world? Could you do the kind of job that others fear or don’t believe exists? Sylvester Cole can. He has for too many years, and now he wants out. Long ago on track to become a literature professor, Sylv made one big mistake, and he’s paid for it since. Maybe he’s made himself pay. He’s not exactly sure. But one thing is certain, now in his mid-fifties, he’s had enough. He’s saved up his cash and gold. He’s bought a plane ticket out of Vegas, and he’s ready to retire. Sylvester Cole wants one chance at life. Because Sylvester Cole is sick of re-killing the dead. But when Sylv wanders into his favorite watering hole to say goodbye to his friends of convenience, he’s confronted with an opportunity of a different sort: a girl, who just might give him that chance to snatch life and love out of the hands of fate – by re-killing one last time. “Bite” is a noir novella that brings you back to what horror is all about: emotional, psychological, spiritual stakes. Its voice is real, and its action is aggressive. __________ Get "Bite" and see why popular UK genre site GingerNutsofHorror just picked it as one of the SEVEN BEST NOVELLAS OF 2013! _______ Bram Stoker Award winner F. PAUL WILSON describes Goldsmith's debut, BITE, as: "An action-packed collision of horror and noir!" --- Stoker winner and graphic novelist BRIAN KEENE writes: "Gard Goldsmith's prose is like the edge of a knife. Definitely a writer to watch." ---- British Fantasy Award winner, MARK MORRIS calls BITE: "A cracking story which tears along at 100 miles an hour." - Stoker and British Fantasy Award winner CHRISTOPHER GOLDEN writes that BITE is: "A hard-boiled horror story, as if Sam Spade had turned vampire hunter." - Stoker winner and best-selling author THOMAS F. MONTELEONE says: "Goldsmith writes lines of prose as lean as he is; and he dares to employ familiar horror tropes in ways that are totally original." And best-selling author GUY ADAMS writes: "Gardner Goldsmith is a force of nature, no less so his writing. When BITE bares its teeth you catch a whiff of bourbon and cigarette smoke and then it's all about the jugular. A wonderful evocation of pulp thrills."
