    One thought on “Big Rock Beat: A Wacky Zany Romp”

    1. I enjoyed Horror Show, but I really enjoyed this one. Lots of old faces, some interesting new ones, and a plot with a lot more depth.Kihn was obviously growing and improving as a storyteller by this, his third novel. He's never going to be a great writer, and he's never going to be a great horror writer, but his stories are fun.I probably enjoyed the Impresser story point more than anything else in the novel. The Impresser was supposedly the Porsche Spyder that James Dean was driving when he die [...]

    2. A fun and fast-paced sort-of sequel to HORROR SHOW, this is another salute to B movies and rock'n'roll. It's not great literature, but boy-howdy is it a lot of fun! As much as I know I should, I absolutely can not resist saying: "They don't write 'em like that anymore."

    3. Another book in my trend of noir-especially LA noir. This one is good, quirky and a good time. The the time and place (LA and San Fran late 60's) features pretty heavily and you really get get a sense of setting. Pretty good read all the way around.
