Bad Book by K S Brooks, Stephen Hise and J D Mader

If you ever thought that a collaboration between three authors might be a dodgy, even risky, enterprise, think again.  Put three gifted, funny, witty, and clever authors together, and you get an utter gem of a book.

There’s a clue in the title – it is a baaaaad book; it’s rollicking good fun and laugh-out-loud hilarious.  Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Our hero, Case, is – well, he’s really just your typical, run-of-the-mill hitch-hiker of literary genres and he glides from one to the other, hopefully, optimistically, sometimes painfully, and he finds himself traversing horror, sci-fi, and westerns, to name but a few, always cheekily, saucily and a little bit tongue-in-cheek.  To say you’ll get mouth-ache from a permanent grin on your face is an understatement of an understatement. 

Brooks, Hise and Mader complement each other to a tee and bring to the table their individual brand of humour, satire, and whimsicality and seamlessly braid their talents into a masterpiece.

Case tickled my fancy from start to finish and the end of the book came with disappointment.  Where was I going to get my permagrin from now?

Excellent – highly recommended


  1. Cathy,

    Thanks so much for this wonderful review. Now I have a "permagrin."

  2. Hi Cathy, I loved your review. It's really difficult to describe Bad Book because there is so much going on--something for just about everyone, all funny. Your review is great.I enjoyed it so I kind of said when I said I loved it. I did! ( I have to use anonymous because I don't have any of the accounts listed but that's the only reason, lol). Grant

  3. Thank you, Grant - glad you enjoyed the review - and the book!!!
