PRLog - May 25, 2011 - OCEAN VIEW, Hawaii -- The Independent Publisher Book Awards were conceived in 1996 as a broad-based, unaffiliated awards program open to all members of the independent publishing industry.
Halocline by john g rees - SILVER AWARD WINNER
Halocline, john g rees' second near future novel is awarded as the SILVER Award Winner in the 2011 IPPY AWARDS for HORROR by INDEPENDENT PUBLISHER! Halocline, published by Black Water Books, in Hawaii, is a near future tale of the workings of an everyday salvage vessel and its inevitable crew of characters. It is a twisted continuance of john g rees’ first horror novel anoxic zone.
Their lives forever changed by the machinations of Megacorp years before, Jake and Johnny rid themselves of the yoke they had been forced to wear, but the result left them in a limbo of the damned.
Fate once again steps in, making the question and choice for our heroes: to save themselves or to save a people from a fate worse than death? It seems the answer is both. Jake and Johnny will have to confront the evil within themselves if they are to prevail. For Jake this is no small task. The odds are overwhelming. The risks are great, the cost their souls.
Once again, grossly graphic descriptions of the disfigurements and impalings occur throughout this wildly thrilling novel. Rees’ way of words just makes you squinch your eyes and yet want more. He happily continues to disgust and amuse us.
