On their way though, they must avoid death and worse at the hands of a series of cryptids that stand in their way. Described as reminiscent of Stephen King’s The Long Walk and The Mist, but with the grit of Cormac McCarthy’s The Road, this is one novel that readers of horror, thrillers and kaiju will not want to miss. Will the gang survive? You can find out by ordering your copy here. Radio Run is available in paperback and eBook.
