New from Uncomfortably Dark & Nikolas P. Robinson!

Releasing August 5, 2024!

Molded by war and disfigured by a roadside bomb, Oliver Clark doesn't hold out much hope for the future. Then he meets Jayne, and all of that changes. But when she's taken from him, Oliver sets his sights on revenge. 

No matter who it was, he's determined that they'll learn how far someone will go when they have nothing holding them back, and nothing left to lose.

Early Praise for Have A Blast

“If regular revenge is best served cold, this type of revenge is liquid-goddamn-nitrogen.” — Christine Morgan, Splatterpunk Award-winning author of Lakehouse Infernal.

“A brutal revenge-thriller that packs a helluva punch. Robinson’s propulsive prose grabs you by the throat and doesn’t let go until the end. This was a banger!”—Danger Slater, author of House of Rot.

Marty Cantrell is an artist with a dark obsession. He follows women. But he’s not a stalker. He doesn’t harm them. They don’t even know he’s there, hiding in the shadows, watching them in their private moments like pieces of art displayed for only him to see.

One night, he saves Amelia Cole from the touch of a killer’s blade. By committing a good deed during one of his nightly escapades, he’s come out of the shadows that he’s felt secure hiding in for so long.

Now he’s ensnared in a psychopathic killer’s violent murder spree. He’s afraid of the darkness that had once offered him salvation. But as the body count continues to rise, Marty starts to wonder if he’s been the killer’s true target all along.
