How much can a Centipede bleed?

Miller is a real master in his Pulpverse. I relish the way in which he weaves a modern sensibility into a 30's style setting. Zenith City is a place of two worlds, and is filled with real people from the 30's and new characters invented just for the Centipede. This is something that Larry Corriea pulled off in his pulp universe of Hard magic. It is nice to see someone else do it just as well.

Here, the Centipede battles not only Jack the Ripper, but we also get to meet the Black Centipede Eater and the White Centipede, all of whom are out to end the budding career of the Black Centipede. This book is rife with action, excitement, and mystery. Miller knows how to write pulp, and his setting really suits is style. I was surprised that I like the modern style that he injects into the 30's era as much as I do. I wouldn't have thought it would work, but it does. It is kind of like watching a sci fi movie in which everyone spoke 16th century english. Weird, but cool if done right.

Grall is a vocal wizard, and he kills the narration (in a good way). His voice really carries the story, and he drives the pace perfectly. He does great voices, and his narration voice is soothing and pleasant to listen to.

I really recommend this book. Fans of Pulp, superheroes, serial killers, and men of mystery will easily find a soft spot in their heart for this novel. Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.
