"For hardcore zombie lovers, Clothier provides lots of blood, guts and some terribly violent zombie slaying"
"A Darkness Shattered was so vivid a telling of a post Apocalyptic world that the imagery of the narrative kept me entranced. Clothier is a brilliant storyteller who manages to be vivid and descriptive without bogging the story down in any way."
"Author Bruce Clothier develops a realistic and credible account of what a national emergency could entail, whether by zombies, war, terrorism, or disease."
