Reviewers open ‘CANOPIC JARS,’ find fresh scares
Canopic Jars: Tales of Mummies and Mummification—the anthology from Great Old Ones Publishing which includes my newest short story “Jarring Lucas”—is available and has, so far, met with positive reviews of the “it’s great to see something fresh done with the original walking dead” variety.
Hellnotes specifically highlighted “Jarring Lucas” and proclaims “The fresh looks at mummification found here could perhaps return the mummy to its rightful place as something to fear.” Killer Reviews notes “if you love to throw yourself into a fantastic short story, then you’re in luck – this book has the right mix of ingredients to make any horror fan come unraveled with joy (pun intended).” And Lurid Lit says Canopic “is a much needed breath of fresh air from the standard ‘look a dead guy chomping of a leg’ zombie fare…So everything old is new again and the stories, by and large, present inventive plots, marvelous twists of fate and some off the wall characters.”
Now that your holiday gifts are unwrapped, if you’re looking for something new to open, check out Canopic Jars: Tales of Mummies and Mummification. It could be just what you’re looking for on a cold January day.
