About the book:
"Adoration for the Dead is a lineup of seven twisted tales full of insanity, murder, drugs, corpses, and demonic possession. It combines brutal violence and poetic introspection, with a touch of the fantastic. Werner pays tribute to the world of comic books, classic slasher films, Edgar Allen Poe, and H.P. Lovecraft. Be seduced by the calls of despair and step into a world of disturbing sickness. J. Werner is the new master of the macabre."
This was author and illustrator Joshua Werner's second book. It was self-published in limited runs in 2006 and self-distributed across the midwest and east coast. The original copies of the book are considered to be rare. It is now once again made available through online publishers.
Horror reviewer Tim Gross gave the book 3 1/2 out of 4 stars. Gross stated "The short stories are awesomely written for the average horror fan and pack a punch to gut with every gory and horrifying ending. Demons, zombies, possession, oh my… and much more! The book actually runs like ‘Tales from the Darkside’ TV series and reminds me a lot of the ‘Creepshow’ movies of how well they just flow together seamlessly. Every story keeps you wanting more terror, more gore, and not to end!"

Don't like ebooks? Want a real physical book? No problem:

RIP Bill Hinzman

Bill Hinzman, an actor famous for his zombie role in Night of the Living Dead, which revolutionized zombies in Cinema and set the standard for decades after, passed away yesterday at the age of 75, from cancer. His daughter had him cremated, per his wishes. She said he always joked that if he was buried, he'd come back from the dead. Bill was a great guy, he loved the convention circuit, and he was quite a people-person. He was a lot of fun, had a great sense of humor, and truly loved what he did. I had the pleasure of spending some time with Bill and I'll treasure that. RIP Bill Hinzman, you'll live on in the television sets of millions of viewers, in my artwork, and in all of our hearts.
