Author and reviewer Michael Noe graciously sent me an arc of his newest book, Slime Time, a creature feature straight out of a Friday or Saturday night in the 70’s and 80’s. This book read like it would fit right in with some movies of our bygone childhoods. A story of small town horror that wasn’t over the top or out right extreme.
It begins with a young couple getting hot and heavy in their towns number one make out spot, The Point, when something comes crashing down out of the sky into a nearby field. Of course curiosity gets the best of everyone and the need to investigate the crash compells the kids to abandon their lusty adventure for this once in a lifetime experience. This is just the start of the night that the small town of Cotrage Grove ceased to exist.
Slime Time is an entertaining book, and one thing I really liked was the use of a slime type monster. There just isn’t a lot of books out there utilizing this kind of creature, at least that I am aware of. I can only think of Adam Ceasers Exponential off the top of my head. Michael Noe effectively uses the slime to rampage through the town in its mindless slaughter of everyone it comes into contact with.
Slime Time is funny, horrific and entertaining. An excellent read especially with the approaching Halloween season. Recommended for any fan of horror.
