    In this first novella in a planned series, Hicks weaves a brutally fast paced and wholly terrifying historical story set in the Colonial American city of New York. Bodies have been stolen from the freed black cemetery, as well as those less fortunate, being abducted and killed for nefa...

    The Resurrectionists has tentacles and that?s all you need to know! But I?ll tell you a little more. Set in 1788 and featuring a world where racial tensions run high, Salem Hawley is an emancipated black man doing his best to fight for what is right. He is decent and dedicate...

    First of a new series. This cosmic horror/historical novel mashup delivers in every way. A great protagonist, scary villains. A frightening and oh so disturbing premise-this book entertained the hell out of me. Michael Patrick Hicks is one of my favorite writers, and if you enjoy this,...

    Salem Hawley may be a free man after the American Revolution, but his troubles are plenty. A good friend seeks his help, turning Salem's attention to the graves being emptied and the deceased experimented upon and studied by medical students and physicians. It goes ignored, yet Salem i...

    This book was lovingly cooked up by Hicks with everything I love from the horror spice rack - a deliciously evil blend of Lovecraft, Martyrs, Frankenstein and Grand-Guignol madness. The concept is bonkers and the gore is unrelenting and off the wall. A hell of a way to kick off what wi...

    A very well written and dark Lovecraftian tale from Mr. Hicks. The plague doctors are looking to rip open the ?thinnies? and bring forth the creatures that lurk behind the curtain. They just might do it, too. Another super solid effort from MPH and highly recommended. ...

    I love cosmic horror and historical novels, and Hicks combines both to make the first book in the SALEM HAWLEY SERIES a novella that I could barely put down. I'm ready for book two now! I've always had a morbid interest in grave robbers or resurrectionists, and the stories about the...

    Historical fiction meets Lovecraft in this quick, engrossing novella of cosmic horror. Using the Doctor's Riots of 1788 as a backdrop, our hero Salem Hawley must fight against a band of sadistic, blood-thirsty cultists guided by The Necronomicon and bent on unleashing the wrath of Eldr...

    "The secrets to so many of life's mysteries could only be divined in the study of death." First, look at this damn cover. It's creepy and gorgeous, and I kind of want a poster of it. This definitely drew me in to The Resurrectionists. Although this book has such an interesting s...

    The Resurrectionists is a novella that provides a nice introduction to the primary character Salem Hawley and provides information on a time period I am not familiar with. However this is a horror story and the author provides a good portion of gore and action that will satisfy any hor...

    Wow! I'm going to give a full, detailed review for SCREAM Magazine but just so readers know where I stand on this one, Michael Patrick Hicks has imagined something *very* compelling. I read much of this book with a heavy heart and a healthy aversion to all the hate speech, violence ...

    The Resurrectionists is an ambitious project, but then again a historical cosmic horror novel has no chance existing without that ambition. Fortunately, Michael Patrick Hicks has the chops and delivers a story that is as frightening as it is unique. There's a lot to discover and ho...

    This is the opening salvo in a series that gives the readers everything they want. A gritty, grisly historical fiction with poetic prose and plenty of heart and guts. A mesmerizing, cosmic horror tale channeling elements of Lovecraft and Chambers with a dash of Poe. I can't wait for th...
