This is a new, fresh and exciting story ready for you to devour! Brian Kirk’s writing is amazing to say the least. In “We Are Monsters”, something dark has been released into the halls of the Sugar Hill mental asylum……although they do not have sharp teeth or claws, what you will unravel as you read will have you mind blown.
An extremely paranoid schizophrenic who sees humanity’s dark side has just been admitted to Sugar Hill. Dr. Eli Alpert is smitten as he has been working on a cure of schizophrenia and a drug that returns patients to their former selves. Or so they think….the drug is unapproved and the Dr.’s test subjects are living just inside his reach.
Due to some unforeseen side effects of the drug, the monsters inside the patients start seeping out in a dark, inky goo of inner demons. Leaving Sugar Hill an extremely dangerous place.
This is a very original tale that will keep you enthralled though out the entire book. A thought provoking and somewhat horrifying novel delivered to us by author Brian Kirk, served on a sterile medial platter for us to enjoy! Great work, I look forward to reading more from this author!
Praise for We Are Monsters
“Keep an eye on Brian Kirk. His ambitious debut, We Are Monsters, is a high-voltage thrill, like watching Sam Fuller’s Shock Corridor and Joel Schumacher’s Flatliners on split screens. ” — Jonathan Moore, Bram Stoker Award nominated author of Redheads
“We Are Monsters is fantastic — a frightening and intense thriller and one hell of a debut novel. I was blown away. Brian Kirk is exactly what readers need — a talented new voice with original, awe-inspiring ideas that can push the genre forward.”
-Brian Keene, best-selling author of Ghoul and The Rising
“Brian Kirk’s debut We Are Monsters is a smart, elaborate novel that weaves together the best and worst of us. Complex, terrifying, and still humane, this book moved me to both horror and compassion, and that’s a difficult thing indeed. Easily the best book I’ve read this year.” (Mercedes M. Yardley, author of Pretty Little Dead Girls: A Novel of Murder and Whimsy.)
“A tightly woven tale from an author who has a heart, and that makes me excited to see what else Kirk has in store for us. The whole story will have you examining the human race as never before.” (Ginger Nuts of Horror)
“Brian Kirk’s debut novel We Are Monsters is a sure bet. A hippy-trippy jaunt that goes deep into the baser things we keep bottled up… and what happens when they’re freed. Highly recommended!” (John F.D. Taff, Bram Stoker nominated author of The End In All Beginnings.)
“A disturbing, gets-under-your-skin debut novel. I expect to read much more from Kirk in the future.” (Robert Ford, author of The Compound and Samson and Denial.)
“Cleverly told. Psychologically complex.” (Scarlet’s Web)
“A gorgeous display of conceivable terror that resonates long after reading.” (Ranked as one of the Top Ten Horror Novels of 2015 by Best-Horror-Movies.net)
