I believe Kraken Press will soon be ordering the pre-ordered paperbacks of my new horror neo-noir novel, THE MIND IS A RAZORBLADE. This way I can receive them in time to autograph and mail out by the book’s September 18th release date. If you liked my last novel, TOXICITY, then you should dig this new book, too. And if you’ve never read anything I’ve written, RAZORBLADE is a good opportunity to take a chance on me.
As I’ve mentioned in the past, each pre-ordered paperback will not only receive a signed copy, but they will also receive a free paperback of my horror western novella, BLACK, published last year through Hazardous Press. They will also receive a special RAZORBLADE poker chip, along with some other cool surprises. Oh, yeah, if you pre-order the paperback, Kraken Press will immediately email you the eBook, so you don’t even have to wait to read it.
However, if you aren’t interest in the paperback, you can still pre-order the kindle version directly from Amazon. Which you should definitely do.
THE MIND IS A RAZORBLADE is a supernatural neo-noir horror novel of a man born into death. Drowning, he wakes beside two corpses. His memory has been wiped clean. He doesn’t know his name, what he’s doing here, who these people are, or even why one of them is a cop. Nor can he explain his strange telekinetic abilities. Questions plague his mind like hellfire, questions that begin a journey leading into the rot of downtown America, a journey that will not end until every one of his questions have been answered, despite who has to die in the process. Even if those who have all the answers aren’t human.
A story of identity and redemption, satanic cults and funny bunny slippers, THE MIND IS A RAZORBLADE is the deformed lovechild of a lunatic raised on cheesy ‘80’s science fiction movies.
“Sharp and deadly—the mind is definitely a razor blade. Max Booth has created a dark, violent, and oddly touching novel. This powerful story is hard to put down and full of emotion—laughing one minute, cringing the next, and constantly glancing over your shoulder, wondering if those shadows moved again.”
–Richard Thomas, author of Disintegration
“The Mind is a Razorblade assaults you from the very first word and never lets go. Chaotic, abrasive, and just a little bit psychotic, Max Booth III pulls you into the maelstrom. Unlike Dorothy, though, you won’t be asking to go home. You’ll be begging.”
–Tim Marquitz, author of the Demon Squad books.
“Max Booth III takes you on a journey built with the stuff of your nightmares and injected with a triple dose of noir, sci-fi and the deepest, darkest comedy. From the first page — hell, the first sentence — Booth assaults your senses with paranoia, action, and terror and he never lets up. The Mind is a Razorblade is a novel about love, identity, spiders and demons — and it will kick your ass.”
Craig T. McNeely, The Pulp Chronicler
