Bigfoot War, by Eric S. Brown
Book Review by G. A. Bixler
Have you read this book?
Eric S. Brown, according to his bio, has been called "The King of the
Zombies;" however, since I had never read any of his work before, I
would have to think that he might also now become King of the Bigfoot!
Bigfoot War is not for those who cannot appreciate a great slasher or splatter book or movie. So, you are now warned...
The Prologue sets the stage for the entire novel. Jeff, Scott and their
father are out hunting what they think is probably a grizzly which has
killed one of their cows. Soon Jeff is hiding in a closet, both his
father and Scott dead.
Nobody will believe Jeff's story that a bear had not been the killer...
Fifteen years later, Jeff Taylor returns to Babble Creek, North
Carolina. He is there for only one reason--to kill the monster that had
murdered his family!
But it was only coincidental that Jeff had returned at this particular
time. For the sheriff had already been contacted by a lady who
constantly complained about UFOs in her area. This time, however, upon
investigating a man was found leaning on his truck horn, the driver's
door had been pulled off, the driver's head crushed--but not because of
The humans in this book really are unimportant--the Bigfoot are the main
characters and when Jeff starting hunting for the Bigfoot he knew was
in the woods there, and then the Sheriff and her crew started hunting
what they thought had to be a bear that had murdered the man in the
truck, they all came together.
And they found that the monster they finally killed was indeed a Bigfoot.
What they didn't know was that the one killed was special, perhaps a leader of the family.
The Bigfoot family, that is... And now they were all on their way to the
little town of Babble Creek, killing everyone in their path. And
nothing was stopping them.
It could only be called a War!
So, here I am, living in a log cabin amidst my woods, and I've started
to read from the beginning Introduction from the Author. "As a child,
the one monster who haunted my nightmares the most was Bigfoot. I will
never forget a book I read in kindergarten about a lone man trapped
inside a mountain cabin..." Yikes! Then he says, "I set out to write a
book that was not only frightening and fun, but also to give fans like
me a tale that finally brought an entire tribe of Sasquatches into play,
and showed what such a pack of creatures could do if they entered the
world of man."
I wouldn't want a steady diet of slasher/splatter books. You better
believe I only read Bigfoot War by Eric S. Brown during the daylight
hours and as far as I'm aware, the only monsters in my woods are 'possum, coons and deer! My Bigfoot must be the friendly kind! But if
you want to be frightened by the possibilities, and, yes, have a little
fun imaging the potential, I highly recommend Bigfoot War!
