Barry Reese

Pulp Writer Extraordinaire

rabbit_heart_newAt long last, my most infamous work is back in  print! RABBIT HEART is here! We’re still waiting on the eBook version to go live but you can buy it in print — and that’s the best way to enjoy that gorgeous Jason Levesque cover! This new edition has been completely re-edited by the Pro Se staff and graphic designer Sean Ali has done a wonderful job laying out the book and making the graphics look even better than before.

Rabbit Heart is my most personal creation and it’s set in my hometown of Milledgeville, Georgia. Our main character, Fiona Chapman, discovers that the world is a much stranger place than she’d ever been led to believe… it’s home to the living dead, to demons who have a primal and sexual lust for humanity and to occult detectives who have found immortality. Unlike most of my other work, this is very much an adult’s-only kind of thriller. If you think you know my writing from The Rook, Lazarus Gray or any of my other pulp publications, you haven’t seen anything yet! I’ve honestly gotten more feedback about this novel than anything else I’ve ever written. There are people who have told me that they don’t care for pulp adventure… but this one really turned their crank. I’ve also heard from people who said they couldn’t make it past the first chapter because they were too disgusted and didn’t think they’d ever be able to look at me the same way again.

How could you not want to sample this for yourself?

Here’s what past reviewers have said about the book:

“Delightfully deviant. I’ve simultaneously wanted to laugh my ass off and puke my guts out while reading this. That’s pretty impressive.”

“Okay, I’m halfway through Rabbit Heart and that is GROSS, Barry!”

“Almost done with Rabbit Heart and it’s compelling. Pornographic but compelling.”

“Rabbit Heart was like a train wreck: horrifying and disturbing, but you just couldn’t look away. While this book is definitely not a part of my normal genre reads (humor, adventure, nonfiction), I found it very interesting and couldn’t put it down.”

“I finished your book Rabbit Heart and I must say I was quite entertained—you have quite a vivid imagination. Well done!”

“Rabbit Heart is extremely graphic. It’s brutal, gruesome, and strangely erotic—sometimes all at once. Sex and violence mix together in a way that may be disturbing to some, but is nonetheless gripping. I found it impossible to tear myself away from the book—I was disgusted and shaken to my core and I say these things as compliments.”

“There is plenty of gore, sexual brutality and blatant acts of depravity all meticulously embellished with not a gruesome detail omitted. If you’ve the stomach for it, Rabbit Heart is a savage reading experience but it is not for the timid.”

“When I first picked up this book I thought “Oh my… Whoa…. Holy Crap! NO WAY!” Haha this story continuously surprised me! It is not for the faint of heart nor children at all! But I can tell you that I absolutely loved it! It is a must read!”

“Reese is good at showing the action from a variety of characters. You may not like being in the head of a horny college student, but he forces you to see the world from those eyes. It’s a difficult trick, showing multiple viewpoints, but he neatly pulls it off.”

“The book has a very strong sexual and somewhat violent context, but it grabs hold of you from the beginning and doesn’t let go till the end, and if you are like me, you will be wanting MORE!”

This was a wonderful birthday present for myself (my b-day is Monday)… having Rabbit Heart back on the market makes me very, very happy — and I hope you enjoy it.

Expect a full press release coming from Pro Se Press soon!
