Publisher's Summary

First they feasted on farm animals. Then they found humans....

A little girl was dead, attacked, and mutilated by some things, creatures of nightmare that were spreading outward like the Black Death, stripping the entire town bare of life.

The death toll mounted, with bodies maimed or ripped to shreds, and thousands cowered in the shadows, hiding fearfully from the death out of the skies, the millions of sucking probosci eagerly reaching out for the attack. And terror erupted into uncontrollable panic, as a lone scientist worked feverishly to save a dying population and destroy the killer flies!

Classic 80’s Horror

Thanks to Encyclopocalypse Publications, the early 80’s horror classic, KILLER FLIES by Mark Kendall is now available in audiobook format. KILLER FLIES is a great example of early 80’s creature horror and is narrated by Sean Duregger with the passion and intensity this story deserves.

Mad Science and Killer Insects!

Encyclopocalypse Publications has done something fantastic in bringing this classic piece of 1980s animal horror back to life. Capitalizing on the fears of the nuclear age--of science gone wrong--Mark Kendall penned this exciting tale of deadly, swarming flies descending on the unexpecting people of New Mexico.
From the moment the truck transporting the load of genetically modified flies crashes until the clamorous conclusion, we witness close-up accounts of people, pets, and livestock as they run afoul of the insect menace. Scientific hubris, myopic politicians, and a wholly unprecedented threat combine to create a perfect storm for the horrors to unfold in the worst way possible.
At the core of the story, a mother's desire for revenge propels us along a reckless path amid the devastating events scattered throughout the tale. New faces appear only to be summarily devoured and left as a bloody pulp by the devouring proboscises of the flies.
Sean Duregger is at the top of his narration game, lending each character their own distinctive voice, breathing life into even the most minuscule roles within the story.

Such a great creature feature!

This book was brought to life by Sean Duregger and his amazing narration. His voice work is incredible and I could picture each character perfectly based off his different voices. The story itself is a fun B movie horror, screaming 80s horror paperback in all the best ways. There was humor, terror, sex, and some grotesque scenes- anything you could want from a book titled Killer Flies. I highly recommend this for anyone that is a fan of 80s horror, creature features, and B horror stories.

Fun creature-feature and excellent performance.

Decent prose and gory kills, pretty good time if somewhat mild thrills. Excellent performance by the narrator. Recommended for fans of throwback B-features.

Not my favorite!💜

I didn’t care for this story. Some of the plots thrown in the middle of the book didn’t seem to fit within the overall storyline. Such as the love triangle that basically had nothing to do with the storyline. There was the reporter and a couple other random characters that I felt could have played a much stronger role in this story.
IMO, The narration was good but also not my favorite. I’m a huge Sean Duregger fan but for some reason this story wasn’t able to showcase his true voice acting talents.
Overall this story didn’t work for me, but this is only my opinion. I encourage anyone who might be interested to give it a try and draw your own conclusions.

great short story

Very well developed storyline & characters. There are some holes in the story to overlook but still very good. Narration is excellent with male & female voices ranging in age & accent.

80s Creature Feature mania!

This is truly a wild ride! It gives all the outrageous 80s B Movie vibes you can expect and then some! And narrated by Sean Duregger is the bonus you definitely want going into this... come for the flies and craziness, but stay for Duregger's narration. I know my rating would be lower without his added entertainment value as well as just keeping me engaged throughout the whole book. No character is treated lightly - he implores them all with so much life. So I definitely encourage this as audiobook!

Reminds me of a 70's or early 80's B movie

I enjoyed this book a lot it reminded me of those low budget sci-fi/ disaster movies that were made in the 1970's and the early 1980's and that is what I like about it.
They may not have been the best films and there maybe there might be a few plot holes here and there and maybe things happen in the book that would not happen in the real world if this relay happened but if you can just get past that and enjoy the story you will enjoy this book.
I'm off to buy some fly spray.

Quality? Not So Much. Fun? Absolutely.

This title was offered free to me in exchange for an honest review.

When Sherry Quinn discovers her daughter dead from an animal attack her grief is quickly replaced by the terror that the child will be far from the last. Alongside her ranch hand, Hutch Eegels, they discover a cloud of killer mutant flies hungry for living flesh.

They team up with a discredited scientist and hunt down the swarm, only to find the government are not as agreeable to their actions as they hoped, putting them at odds with the army and the local police, as well as the masses of carnivorous flying horrors.

Mark Kendall's Killer Flies is in no way a classic horror tale. In fact a great many literary offenses could be leveled against the book. Its derivative, and somewhat predictable. It uses what could be considered stock characters, and is rather glib at times regarding the demise of said characters. Sherry's behavior after the death of her only child is more than a little questionable, and her relationship between the scientist and Hutch raises more than the occasional eyebrow, but...

If you are in the mood for a rip-roaring, and somewhat dumb-but-fun adventure with a side of cheese and gore, you could do far worse. Its one of those books (in audio form, performed by the always reliable Sean Duregger) that I found to be shamefully unputdownable, being drawn back to it again and again even though I knew I had far more quality conscious books to get through.

It is undeniably important that a writer learns some skill in writing, if they intend to write professionally. It is also certainly important that some effort is made to create a world that is original and has characters that are compelling and unique. But its also important that a book entertains, and - I'm not sure if this is an unfortunate truth or not - quality of writing and originality of work are not essential to the completed work actually being entertaining, and ultimately I will always prefer pure entertainment to literary skill on almost any day of the week.

I realize this admission may say a lot about me that is not exactly glowing, but I suspect its true of most people. Killer Flies may not be an original work, and the writing may not show a great deal of skill, but it does the one thing that many greater books often do not achieve, it entertains from cover to cover, and leaves behind the knowledge that you'll probably listen to it again at some point.

Though you may pretend you're reading something else when you do.

I decided to read this book based on nothing but the cover, and the fact that Sean Duregger was performing it, and I'm glad I did. If you like the performer (and if you don't what is wrong with you?) and the cover brings a sinister smile to your face then read (or listen to) it, I think it likely you'll like it as much as I did.

Even through all the eye rolls and cringe.
