Ray Bara posted a review of the latest Lazarus Gray collection on Goodreads. He gave it 5 stars and had the following to say:
Another sizzling edition of Lazarus Gray and Assistance Unlimited! Once again, Barry Reese shows why he is at the top of the New Pulp scene. He has crafted a wonderful world with Lazarus Gray and his band of heroes. Now into the eighth volume, Reese is cruising through one adventure after another with his spectacular cast of characters. And this time around, he brings back a prior villain (Nemesis), introduces a new villain who is sure to return (Bushido), and brings in a new open source hero (Golden Amazon). All the while, the action does not stop, whether Lazarus et al are battling a monster in the snowy woods, baby-snatching Shamblers in underground tunnels, or aliens in downtown Sovereign. Assistance Unlimited also suffers inner turmoil, with one member being impregnated by magic, and another member leaving the group over philosophical differences with Lazarus. This is another great read from a great author. Read this book and get ready for the next few volumes, which are coming soon!
Thanks, Ray! I’m glad you enjoyed this edition. You’re right that Bushido will return – in fact, keep an eye out for volume nine! I’ve actually written 13 volumes so you should have plenty of Lazarus to enjoy over the next year or two as Pro Se has an ambitious release schedule planned!
