Hell Fighters is a work of fiction in the horror subgenre penned by author Bil Richardson. The work is suited to the general adult reading audience due to its dark themes but does not contain any extreme content. Interspersing paranormal and science fiction elements to create a cosmic horror atmosphere, we find ourselves on a Lovecraftian journey into the unknown with protagonist Dr. Max Heller. With the fate of the world at stake, a group of unusual and unassuming humans vows to fight the evil forces that threaten to invade the planet. What results is a mind-bending tale filled with psychological twists and paranormal shockers to fuel your nightmares for weeks ahead.

Author Bil Richardson presents cosmic horror for the modern age, combining the classic Lovecraftian theming of hidden hells in the wider universe with a slick contemporary narrative style that will keep all kinds of readers hooked. One of the features which impressed me most about Hell Fighters was the emotional and psychological experience of the protagonists, which is evocative and genuinely more frightening than the sudden appearance of other life forms or their physical presence. The art of fear is deftly demonstrated in the tense moments before a horror emerges and the slow-burning dread that builds through every chapter of this well-plotted tale. Overall, I would highly recommend Hell Fighters to fans of quirky, capable heroes thrown way out of their depth, readers who enjoy intricately plotted dark science fiction, and anyone who adores Lovecraft and is looking for a superb modern take.
