JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - June 21, 2013 - PRLog -- Leo Publishing, LLC, announces the release of Condosaur, a new horror novel by author Chris Berman. Berman, a science fiction author and creator of The Hive, Star Pirates, Red Moon, and Ace of Aces, has broken new ground with Condosaur. However, Berman does not abandon his scientific accuracy in a tale that lifts deadly predators from the past, and places them into a modern environment. The plot is very plausible and, as in Berman’s prior works of fiction, he is again ahead of the curve, having predicted a year prior to their actual discovery the existence of biologically active bodies of water that have remained buried beneath rock and ice for millions years. Science aside, the true horror of Condosaur is what happens once these creatures finally emerge and find human beings to be easy and satisfying prey.

Chris Berman says, “One of the ideas for Condosaur came about from learning that dozens of small lakes, retention ponds, and waterways in South Florida are connected by miles of underground conduits. This was one of those ‘what if’ moments. What if terrifying predators could travel undetected by using these subterranean waterways to hunt their prey, and what if their prey is us?”  Once the idea began to develop, Chris Berman was able to populate the novel with believable characters and the kind of terrifying, visceral horror that one feels about being stalked as prey by prehistoric killing machines.

From Snakebite Horror Review in England comes this, praising Berman’s new horror novel: "Condosaur goes where Jurassic Park longed to stray, a full on dino invasion on American Soil . . . chomping down on everything and everybody that get in their way. . . Condosaur reads like a nostalgic treat . . . The science feels right and I even found myself learning as the story progressed.

. . . If you enjoy a monster romp with humour and plenty of intestines dripping from jagged jaws you’re in for a treat . . ."

From noted horror writer Richard Lee Byers, author of BLIND GOD'S BLUFF: A BILLY FOS NOVEL and PROPHET OF THE DEAD: “CONDOSAUR is an old-fashioned monster movie in well-crafted prose, so much so that it's easy to imagine John Agar and Richard Carlson in central roles. But Chris Berman brings new life to the classic tropes with sharp observations about life in academia and contemporary Florida.”  

And from best selling science fiction author Sandra Mc Donald, and author of Boomerang World, The Stars Down Under, and The Stars Blue Yonder comes the following: "Fans of Jurassic Park will enjoy Chris Berman's suspenseful clash of predator and prey that turns sleepy South Florida into feeding grounds in which no man, woman or child is safe from ancient hunters -- a fast, danger-packed read."  

Condosaur is available at Barnes & Noble, Amazon, and major book retailers.
