ALL THE RAGE...
PRAISE AND (not so much) FOR STEVEN RAGE:
"Like early Tom Picccirilli mixed with Edward Lee. Get on the Rage train while you can because I have a feeling that he'll be getting bigger with each new book". Jordan Krall, author of Fistful of Feet and Squid Pulp Blues.
"You Morbid Westphal is not a book for the faint of heart. But if you're up for some of the hard stuff, you'll dig this". Garrett Cook, author of the Murderland series, Jimmy Plush and Archelon Ranch.
"He weaves a world that is painted in black and white hues, where anything can happen (and often does), and is brutally visceral. You Morbid Westphal does for hospitals what Jaws did for beach getaways! Steven Rage is a masterful storyteller". Eric Mays, author of Naked Metamorphosis.
"You Morbid Westphal is very highly recommended and a real treat for anyone who enjoys their fiction warped to the breaking point and smeared in blood". Matthew Revert, author of A Million Versions of Right.
"Rage has created an incredibly creative and detailed, though disturbing world". Todd Fonseca, author of The Time Cavern.
"Steven Rage has written an enthralling tale". Harriet Klausner, #1 Amazon Reviewer.
"...a certain poetic flow that maintains the sick depravity you expect to see in Rage's work. If I were ever to be reincarnated as another Charlie Manson, I would definitely want Steven Rage in my family...it's like chicken eyeball soup with entrails for your shriveled, rancid soul". Donald Gorman, author of Paradox.
"...experience the entire book, page by page, as Steven Rage intended it - to scare, to upset, and to start and keep you thinking...brace yourself for one WILD ride". Ellen George, Top 1000 Reviewer and author of Thirst.
"His unique cadence and elaborate descriptions vividly animates every aspect of his writing". Mary Menzel, from AllTheseBooks.com
"Brutal Bible Tales stay with us long after we've turned the final page". Lila Pinord, author of Min's Monster.
"I couldn't connect with the characters. I found that the author was jumping about with dialogue and people and it was hard to follow who was saying what and lost it's appeal for me. I didn't feel there was any fluidity of events as it seemed all over the map. I didn't connect with anything, or any character particularly the character portraying Christ!" Jane, Not A Fan.
"The prose in this book is appalling. I'm not sure if Mr. Rage employed an editor. I doubt it though. In fact, this book reads like the author didn't even draft it himself. The storyline (or what I deciphered of it) was intriguing but the sheer quantity of nonsensical lines, typos and missing words that permeate the book left me shaking my head in disbelief. The impact of almost every single scene is lost and the end result is more laughable than horrifying or disturbing. Avoid". Melmoth, Not A Fan.
"PILATE: A Brutal Bible Tale" (Outskirts Press) is available in paperback and Kindle editions. Steven Rage has just finished "You Morbid Westphal" and has been published through Evil Nerd Empire press. Steven Rage has finished the sequal to PILATE, "The Dope Fiend's Holy War", available on KINDLE. More Brutal Bible Tales for KINDLE will follow in 2010.
About the Author:....
Steven Rage maintains that the hospital his alter-ego works night-shifts for is haunted. He states that due to so many years of working in the dark with the dying has so permanently skewed his reality in such a perverse way that the brightness of day has become frightening to him. Rage goes on to assert that writing such bloody and extreme fiction as he is wont to do is a necessary component that will be consistently conducive his healthy mental state of being. Otherwise, the lack of a suitable purgative may cause him become...untoward. ....
And no one wants that.
