“Steve Zell’s novel Urban Limit is a suspenseful, action/thriller that was totally satisfying. A modern, Portland, Oregon family of four moves out of the city and settles in a pristine winter wonderland, but as the weather becomes stormy and chaotic, menacing characters are introduced and the suspense builds to a dramatic conclusion. Zell integrates domestic and international concerns, making the novel thought provoking as well as entertaining. The reader will want a sequel!” By MaryAnn Baum

“Urban Limit is a mystery to behold of a Book that kept me on the edge of my imagination all the way
to the roller-coaster action packed ending. I am a fan of Steve Zell having read WIZRD. He is a
thrilling writer. A visual wizard and a master wordsmith. I highly recommend his work.” By Dennis Hackin

“The setting is ambiguous. The area in which it’s set feels low-tech. There are no ubiquitous cell phones, and if you want to visit your neighbors you’d best bring your canoe. On the other hand, when a representative of “The System” comes to call in response to Anika’s disappearance, the car turns out to be heavily computerized. It’s an odd duality, a story that’s somewhat unmoored in time and space. I’m a little ambiguous in my feelings toward it. It’s a tad confusing, but it does somehow evoke a bit of that ‘adrift in time and space’ feeling that some fairy tales project.” By H. Grove

“What an excellent take on a classic horror story! The incorporation of an ancient mystic religion, in a modern setting of indescriminate location often had me wondering what time in history this was set in, which only added to the suspense. I’ve adding my name to the mailing list of Coleman, because I can’t wait to see what he filled this up with.” By C. Noxon

Known: A Horror Novel Review

  • Jon Derrickson would give anything to get out of the small town where he grew up. In a job he hates and living alone, he’s all but given up hope that he’ll ever live the life he had really wanted to live. It’s just the same old routine, every day. Until the terrifying recurring nightmares start—nightmares that are way too real and seem to convey a message. Then Jon notices a strange little boy in town who always seems to be watching him, which is only half as unsettling as the fact that the child knows everything about him, including the nightmares he’s been having. Jon begins to wonder if he’s losing his mind, until these unexplainable events lead him to uncover a dark secret. A secret that could get him killed.

“Very interesting, thought provoking and engaging novel. Some have likened it to a Stephen King horror novel; fortunately for me who does not like Stephen King, to me it reminded me of the Ray Bradbury genre – a novel I could not put down with well developed characters, subtle tension that continues to build, intertwined with modern day sci fi, culminating in an unforeseen, interesting twist.” By Karen

“Quickly drawn into the drama of this story and unable to figure it out as I went, the suspense in the twists and turns made it difficult to put down. Very well thought out it held a dramatic ending I was not expecting. Rich in substance and valuable historic perspective, as well.” By Joyful Always

Fever 1793 Review

  • An epidemic of fever sweeps through the streets of 1793 Philadelphia in this novel from Laurie Halse Anderson where “the plot rages like the epidemic itself” (The New York Times Book Review).
  • During the summer of 1793, Mattie Cook lives above the family coffee shop with her widowed mother and grandfather. Mattie spends her days avoiding chores and making plans to turn the family business into the finest Philadelphia has ever seen. But then the fever breaks out.
  • Disease sweeps the streets, destroying everything in its path and turning Mattie’s world upside down. At her feverish mother’s insistence, Mattie flees the city with her grandfather. But she soon discovers that the sickness is everywhere, and Mattie must learn quickly how to survive in a city turned frantic with disease.

“I don’t give many books a five. This book’s historical accuracy on the many details of the 1793 Philadelphia yellow fever epidemic, makes it very informative.

The plot actually gets a B, for being a bit lame, as in there almost wasn’t a plot, but at the same time, it kept me reading. Really, the plot was a family had to deal with yellow fever, and at the end of the story the family is close to where it was when the story begins. It’s the historical detail and accuracy that make the book a valuable read.” By Dora A. Smith

“This is a fascinating account of a devastating fever epidemic in Philadelphia, then the capital of the United States, in 1793. Nearly overnight– people contract the disease and die within the hour– Mattie’s life goes from being a slightly overworked teenage daughter of a proprietor of a successful coffee house, to a young woman struggling to survive in a city that’s taken on the bleakness of a Mad Max film.
Yet somehow we never come as close to Mattie as we might, or as we do with the main character in Anderson’s SPEAK. Mattie’s thoughts are so much on survival and on food that at times the book feels a bit like a travelogue of a disaster. Salvation, when it comes, also seems abrupt. In the end, this is a quick way to get an immediate feel for a terrible time in history, but although we are told a lot about Mattie, her family, her hopes and dreams, somehow she stays elusive. Emotionally, the book is a little disappointing, but it’s still well worth a read.” By Gwen Orel
