About this book publicist Marie Behar and actor Scott Morrow have said in part: There's comfort in nightmares, and I found solace in reading "Cemetery Tales" and "Servant Of The Bones: A Vampires Lament", by Mark S. Orr. The lure of his genre appeals to me, and I could not put it down. Monsters unvanquished. Death unrequited. The thrill of the chase, not the quarry. Turning back is not a possibility. A page turner from cover to cover.
Thank you, Mark S. Orr
with Scott Morrow & Marie Behar
