This book may offend some, and you will know who you are either from the synopsis or from the minute you open the book and see the dedication to "everyone who's had enough of thoughts and prayers." whether or not this book is for you.

Maybe God is everywhere, or nowhere at all. Maybe people believe in God because God is real or maybe God is real because people believe. One thing is for sure, prayer is not meant for the purpose of getting God to do your bidding, especially if you think you are on a mission to control others.
Gala isn't sure what she believes or what she is looking for when she decides to stay at a convent of sorts. What she discovers is how to believe in herself.
This was a quick and quirky read that I would recommend to anyone looking for something out of the ordinary.
3.5 stars that I will round up to 4 out of 5

I received a complimentary copy for review.

This book is an absolute blast, beginning to end. A non-stop monster fest filled with creeps, chills, crazy, over-the-top action, and an endless sense of invention bordering on bizarro, but with a consistency of vision that sets it apart. So dig in and find otherworldly beasts, genetic degenerates, and man-made monstrosities straight out of the pulps, all told in an intelligent, hyper-dense prose style which exposes cross-sections of its subject matter across all cultural strata and political spectrums. A very impressive feat. Highly recommended to fans of smart, weird, monster tales.… (lisätietoja)

The only reason I picked up Spore by John Skipp and Cody Goodfellow was my fondness of the Splatterpunk literary movement of the 80s and 90s, of which Skipp was a major influential participant, and based on that expectation alone, Spore did not disappoint.

Spore bears a striking resemblance to Skipp’s previous work The Bridge – written at the height of Skipp’s writing relationship with coauthor Craig Spector – which was about chemical waste and pollution overtaking nature and the planet with an almost sentient malevolence. While Spore’s titular enemy doesn’t have the same origins, the hive-mind fungus invader’s very presence makes the novel seem like a logical spinoff of The Bridge’s environmentalist-based tone and imagery. Combine that with the book’s warts-and-all love affair with California – very reminiscent of fellow Splatterpunk author David J. Schow’s work – and Spore begins to feel like a callback to the old days of chunk-blowers and underground horror fandom.

Spore feels (at least, to me) a little more lighthearted than some might expect, but maybe that’s just another throwback to a horror genre that was more about being entertainingly gruesome than darkly foreboding. The zombie-plague aspect and far from nihilistic ending are somewhat formulaic, but if you aren’t obsessed with every book you read being a groundbreaking experience, that should keep you from enjoying this shameless attempt appeasing the gore-hound in your soul.

Jake Connaway is a rocker turned cable televangelist preaching that he will one day be resurrected. His chance to prove this theory happens when he is murdered by the husband of one of his followers as he’s having sex with the man’s wife. Jake’s outrageous claims comes to pass when he comes back to life during his wake. Convinced that he is the second coming of Christ, he sees himself as a godlike figure and goes on a violent killing rampage. Among the victims are the people at his house, which includes his wife, his assistant, and a woman he once abused, as well as the men that are with them. Jake and his friend, Gray, a cold-blooded killer, come up with creative and inventive ways to massacre these folks. His end goal is to telecast his rebirth to the world.

The characterization of the two main villains in this story, Jake and Gray, are both well done. They are loathsome and vial characters, but all the same have some level of humanity to them and feel more real than most antagonists that I come across in fiction. The gore in this novel wasn’t overdone and fit the story pretty well. The pace of the novel was quick and there was a high level of tension. On the downside, there was an interlude of Jake’s followers trying to get to his house that seemed pretty useless and should have been scrapped. One thing that was annoying me during the course of the novel was that there was no explanation of Jake’s resurrection. However, there’s a twist at the end of the novel that fully explains the reincarnation and makes the entire novel make sense. For me, the best part of the novel was the twist at the end, which produced a very satisfying conclusion. This was an enjoyable novel that I recommend.
