SUFFER THE CHILDREN by Craig invited some very well-respected authors to list their favorite reads of 2014. I was honored to see SUFFER THE CHILDREN make the list.

John Dixon, author of PHOENIX ISLAND (the book that inspired the TV show INTELLIGENCE), named it one of his favorite reads, calling it an “apocalyptic masterpiece and perhaps the most unsettling book I’ve ever read.”

Thanks, John! (He’s awesome.)

SUFFER THE CHILDREN by Craig DiLouieProud to say SUFFER THE CHILDREN made #1 on’s Top 14 Books of 2014 list (focused on horror), writing, “This book is so f*cked up. It eats other f*cked-up books for lunch. It’s twisted, sad, scary and bloody.”

Thanks, Lori!

Two other notable books on the list were TIME OF DEATH by fellow Permuted author Shana Festa and THE TRUTH IS CONTAGIOUS by Emily Goodwin.

Lipstick & Libraries reviewed SUFFER THE CHILDREN and writes, “Really, this is pretty much the epitome of a good horror novel: amazing plot, fascinating characters, and events that play out with frightening reality. You could see this happening in your town. You can feel the grief and terror. It’s horrible. It’s brilliant.”

Thank you, Lipstick & Libraries!

As part of the Coffin Hop, I offered a free autographed copy of SUFFER THE CHILDREN for the best answer to the question:

Which do you think you’d have better odds at survival, a vampire or zombie apocalypse, and why?

The winner is Michelle Willms, who preferred zombies, and seems incredibly prepared, right down to a set of chef’s knives.

I’ve decided to also send books to two honorable mentions, BN100 for preferring vampires for the simple reason he could go out during daylight hours, and Kai, who would also stay safe at night with a bank of UV lights to keep the vampires at bay.

Congratulations, and I hope you enjoy SUFFER THE CHILDREN! Get ready for a vampire apocalypse unlike any you’ve experienced.

Lit/Rant reviewed SUFFER THE CHILDREN (and Tim Waggoner’s NIGHT TERRORS in the same post) and writes, “DiLouie has written a new take on the traditional vampire novel, combining it with a fantastic apocalyptic premise to create a horror mashup that is well-thought out in the sort of way that makes it as much a tragedy as a fright-fest. That’s the sort of horror one gets from the masters, and SUFFER THE CHILDREN is original and worthy.”

Thanks, Lit/Rant!
