Bulwark is a paranormal fantasy novella written by Brit Lunden. No one had the foggiest idea what had caused the greenish, slimy puddle that was rapidly turning into a pond covering an extensive part of the roadway. Bulwark Sheriff Clay Finnes thought it looked like some sort of primordial soup, something ancient. Whatever it was, the Ford Fusion stuck in the middle of it wasn’t going anywhere, and its occupants, an older man and woman, were currently at a neighboring house, one belonging to a retired football great. They were not, reportedly, in very good condition, and indeed when Sheriff Finnes went to JB’s cabin, he was stunned to see how traumatized the couple was. This wasn’t the only emergency on the Sheriff’s mind that evening, however; for one thing, there was a domestic dispute that ended with a stabbing. Some said it was the full moon acting up, but Finnes had a feeling it was much more than that.

Brit Lunden’s paranormal fantasy novella, Bulwark, is genuinely eerie and spooky, filled with the kinds of scary effects that true lovers of the dark crave and rarely find. There are no gushes of blood or other cheap special effects, just a consistently good pulse-pounding story about an ancient evil and the one man who stands up against it. Readers who grew up with the likes of Barker, King and Lovecraft will have a field day reading this classy, dark fantasy novella. And, yes, it’s that good. Lunden’s plot is first-rate and her writing is smooth, assured and polished to a high sheen. Bulwark is most highly recommended.
