The Pseudo-Chronicles of Mark Huntley: A novel
It’s the world’s only political horror book in blog format. I’m, uh, pretty sure. And it’s available in its entirety on Amazon! Start with Part 1 here for just $1.99, or grab the entire saga in one volume.
Blogging the end of the human race.
My name is Mark Huntley. You know, life was a lot simpler when my biggest problem was how to pay for both rent and beer. Now, I’ve apparently got to stop a secret war between otherworldly forces that threatens all of humanity. Oh, and make sure I don’t get any of my friends or loved ones killed in the process. All this while a demonic weapon inside me may slowly be driving me insane.
This should be fun.
The Pseudo-Chronicles of Mark Huntley is a political horror story told through a blog in Washington D.C., during the 2004 election. If you like the pulse-pounding, scream-inducing tales of Stephen King, and smart, funny first-person narration like in The Martian, you’ll love meeting Mark Huntley.
Readers of The Pseudo-Chronicles of Mark Huntley (Part 1) say:
“Deck’s writing is seamless and so natural that, as you become immersed in Huntley’s increasingly bizarre world, you forget that the story is fiction. This is the mark of a truly gifted writer.”
— Linda Watkins, author of the award-winning Mateguas Island series
“It was awesome.”
“I was completely drawn into the character’s world from the very start and found it impossible to put down.”
“It is an intriguing and amusing search, told with a great deal of charm and humor.”
“A compelling, effortless read that creeps up on you.”
“I read a lot of books and very few make me think of the characters when I’m not actually reading, but this book did.”
Besides horror books, I also write science fiction — see Books for more.
