“Waggoner introduces zombie PI Matthew Richter and his hometown of Nekropolis, the city of the dead, in this imaginative, morbidly witty, and frightening series launch. Vivid description and characterization, as well as a complex, intricately crafted setting reminiscent of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter universe, keep the pages turning at a rapid rate… Both horror and mystery readers will be delighted by this horror-noir adventure.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“It’s hard to say if this singular novel, which boasts a wicked sense of humor to round off the horror, should be eligible for an Edgar Award or a Bram Stoker or both.” – Elliot Swanson, Booklist

“This is the first novel of a three book series and if this lays the ground-work, we can be assured of a wild ride through the next two!” – SF Revu

“[Nekropolis] is an atmospheric and exciting mystery.” – SF Site

“An up-and-comer who’s worthy of the hype… Tim Waggoner is well on his way to being proclaimed horror fiction’s leading surrealist.” – Cemetery Dance

Waggoner aims to craft a genre-mash up being described as a combination of the ‘vampires-have-taken-over-the-world atmosphere of Justin Cronin’s The Passage’ with ‘a twist to Dashiell Hammett in a seedy bar from Blade Runner.'” – Fangoria

“If you dig your noir and mystery with a heavy dose of horror and fantasy … Matthew Richter’s first pulp adventure through the streets of Nekropolis will not disappoint.”

“It’s comical. It’s endearing, odd for a story about zombies and vampires. It’s suspenseful. It’s damn good fun; that’s what it is.”

“Nekropolis is a wondrous place, populated with extraordinary beings that come alive on the page.  I was immediately hooked by Matt Richter and can’t wait to read more. I give Nekropolis 5 out of 5 stars.”
