Countdown to Halloween: Max Booth III

The clock is winding down on our little countdown. We find ourselves at day 23, with but 7 more days before the witching hour comes to pass. Today we feature Max Booth III and his latest release, just in time for Halloween, Black.

Black: A Novella. A horrific zombie western tale of a gunfighter cursed with unwanted immortality. It's one thing to make a deal with the Devil; it's another when the deal is made for you.

Featuring an interview with Joe McKinney, "Talking Zombies".
