Should Have Killed The Kid - by R. Frederick Hamilton
Should Have Killed The Kid
Who wouldn't want to read a book with that title?
This was my second exposure to R. Frederick Hamilton's writing, the first being Spare Key. Both completely different books, but I enjoyed both.
Almost like a surreal, Aussie version of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Should Have Killed The Kid deals with hopelessness, despair, right and wrong, magic, and blood. Lots and lots of blood. Don't Panic? No, you better panic. 'Cause if you don't, there's probably no salvation in sight.
I look forward to further books (hopefully) in the series, and indeed from Hamilton. Recommended reading for lovers of horror, with a definite Sci-Fi slant, something right up my alley.
