About the Author:

Jon Bassoff was born in 1974 in New York City and currently lives in a ghost town somewhere in Colorado. His mountain gothic novel, Corrosion (DarkFuse), was called "startlingly original and unsettling" by Tom Piccirilli, a four-time winner of the Bram Stoker Award, and "beautifully bleak" by international bestselling author, Jason Starr. In addition to his work as a writer, Bassoff is the founder of the crime fiction publisher New Pulp Press, which was called "genius masked as genre" by New York Magazine.

Review:

"Corrosion is a beautifully bleak noir novel that stretches the boundaries of the genre to its breaking point. A virtuoso performance by the terrific Jon Bassoff." --Jason Starr, International bestselling author of The Craving

"Like some unholy spawn of Cormac McCarthy's Child of God and Donald Ray Pollock's The Devil All the Time, Corrosion offers pungent writing, a cast of irresistibly damaged characters, and a narrative that's as twisted and audacious as any I have read in a long while. A dark gem." --Roger Smith, author of Dust Devils

"Sharp, original, fierce, a real gut-ripper. Corrosion is one of the most startlingly original and unsettling novels I've read in ages. It ramps your pulse, it claws at your sweet spot. Bassoff has a career ahead of him brightly lit by a very bad star." --Tom Piccirilli, author of Edgar Award-nominated novel The Cold Spot

"Imagine Chuck Palahniuk filtered through Tarantino speak, blended with an acidic Jim Thompson and a book that cries out to be filmed by David Lynch, then you have a flavor of Corrosion. The debut novel from the unique Jon Bassoff begins a whole new genre: Corrosive Noir." --Ken Bruen, Shamus Award-winning author of The Guards

"Corrosion is a fever dream, a lucid nightmare. It is at once poetic and brutal; hypnotic and vicious; empathetic and heartless. It is the most effective kind of horror--the kind you believe. Reading it is a deeply uncomfortable experience in the best possible way." --Marcus Sakey, author of The Two Deaths of Daniel Hayes
