Publisher's Summary

“When all else fails, the ass end of a carp makes a damn fine weapon.” 

Your new favorite monster hunter has arrived! Bubba the Monster Hunter has some competition in this horror-comedy collection from best-selling author duo Gail Z. and Larry N. Martin! 

By day, Mark Wojcik can be found elbow-deep in engine grease, making cars and trucks safe for the highway. By night, he can be found traipsing through the wilds of Pennsylvania, making the world safe for humans. He's more than just a mechanic, he's a New Templar Knight. He travels the backroads and byways fighting weresquonks, ningen, selkies, ghosts, and . . . gnomes? Is that gnome . . . naked? (Sigh.) 

Season One collects the first four novellas in the Spells, Salt, & Steel series: Spells, Salt, & Steel; Open Season; Deep Trouble; and Close Encounters.

Great fun; the Bubbaverse grows!

This is a pleasing, episodic collection of monster hunting and paranormal adventure, sharing a universe with Bubba the Monster Hunter. Rather than the south, however, these stories tour the lakes and forests of Northwest PA. It helps that that's my home country, but anyone who likes supernatural adventure will enjoy this book. The main character is a likeable guy of Polish stock, reminding me of countless good guys I've known here in life. Pacing is good, straightforward payoff of all setups. The stories mostly stand alone, which is a nice change sometimes, with the development of the setting and evolution of the characters serving as the larger arc, with ample set up for more to play out over future books. I truly hope the Martins continue with this series!

Roger Wayne delivers great audio, as he reliably does on all series he reads. Highly recommended!

Fantastic!

I really enjoyed this story(s) and the narration was perfect. I kept picturing the main character as Sam Winchester from Supernatural (the good years). I’ll definitely pickup the next audiobook when it comes out...great job all around!

That was a fun adventure!

First let me say how glad I am that I’m not the only one that’s wondered if werewolves could have chocolate...

This was a really fun story. I may be a bit biased, however, since I’m from the Pittsburgh area and knew of a lot of places in the story. Go to google street view and search Water Street, Kecksburg and virtually cruise down the road til you see the Kecksburg Ambulance sign and look up on the hill to see the “Acorn”.

Mini road trip memories aside, the story and narration are brilliant!

This whole season was just a joy to binge and I’m hoping the next few make it to audible soon!

Awesome Book

I have listened to this book many times over since I purchased it. The style, pace, and content of the writing is top notch. Not only is the writing good, the narrator does an amazing job.

Meh. Boring. Just like bubba but uninteresting

I tried. I really did. Mi made two very bad pics and thought I’ll return the one that was terrible and eat the price of this because it’s what it said it was. More monster, spooky paranormal stories told by a guy. Now I guess I expected bubba like over done stereo type character to add the fun and outrageous to the story, but instead of Cooter the mechanic you just get a sad normal guy that was destroyed by a bad thing, lost his family wife left him and he kills and help s the things that go bump in the night. On its own it’s ok. I don’t know if I’d have liked it if I’d never read/listened to the others but when your expecting rochyroadvand you get vanilla, it’s still ice cream, but it’s just not what you were expecting or wanted. So despite audibles great return policy, I don’t feel justified in returning the book, it’s not bad, it’s just not that good.

Mark Wojcik the phenomenal supernatural fighter!

Mark Wojcik is a regular guy with a mission to eradicate the supernatural and demonic activity in Western Pennsylvania. The things that go bump in the night destroyed his life by killing his family. In these short novellas, are the stories of his adventures protecting others from the supernatural. He works for the Occulatum, a Vatican organization. With the help of his band of friends he fights the monsters others can’t along the back roads of Western Pennsylvania. These are stand alone stories with lots of action and swearing. The introductory information about his reasons for fighting and his friends are repeated for each story. If you can get past that you will find the stories enjoyable.

My first Gail Z and Larry N Martin

Usually follow Morgan Brice novels (and love them) but tried this one on a recommendation). Loved it. While it's my first it will not be my last.
