It takes a very special kind of story to earn a five star review by knocking my socks off... this was one of those. The most entertaining book I've read this year is also chock full of symbolic scenes that deal with a host of social issues and stereotypical people and behavior. Jada Ryker, in her review, said it best, "With a deft touch, Mr. Roy also deals with stereotypes, racism and child abuse. He brings a homespun, folksy touch to difficult topics, and he helps the reader see important messages while not standing on a soapbox."

That's the serious, no bull part of this fascinating book; the rest of it is pure fantasy fun and rollicking adventures. Jefferson Balladeer (the Black Redneck), Old Ed, Little Mary and even the off-stage, dear departed Big Beau, through the other characters memory of him, are only some of the fully developed characters that easily captured my interest, empathy and imagination. These are the good guys and there are some equally three-dimensional bit players that, depending on your own disposition waffle between good and not so good. The really bad guys are simply phenomenal. Seriously, it must take a very special kind of fertile ingenuity to dream up the space zombies. They are fantastic in design and... well, I'll not say more about them; you need to meet them on your own terms.

This is a must read for fantasy fans and anyone who gets a thrill from highly imaginative and skillful writing. Steven Roy is an author to watch... I certainly will be watching, and eagerly anticipating his next book!

Jefferson Balladeer. Intelligent. Black. uh...Redneck?

I must say, as far as science fiction goes I must give a tip of the hat to Steven Roy for having the gumption to create a character that had the potential to merely offend, but instead created someone truly deep. After years away, Jefferson returns to his hick-town roots after his adopted white brother, Big Beau dies. Unfortunately, cosmic events that send a zombie creating "Devourer" to Earth sidetrack his plans. This causes him to come to grips with his past of being the Black Redneck.

The supporting cast is rock solid, especially Tom and Mary who are just two backwoods kids in for the ride of their lives. Even his old horse, Gray Man is a star. The cast also adds just enough comedy to keep one engaged, but never at any time goes over the top. The story is first and foremost, about Jefferson's journey.
I like the new angle of the zombies as well. I for one am more than tired of Romero-style zombies ( honestly, Walking Dead is horrible ) and love the fresh incarnation used here. Even the chapter headings take a different angle with fun titles. The description is rich, engaging and original. A wild ride!

If I could make one suggestion, a professional edit would be the cherry on top for this book. Most indie books give themselves away due to this and were it covered, it would be hard pressed to be seen apart from a professional work. Space Zombies also feels like a lot of buildup and action doesn't really start until well over half of the way through. However, were this to be book one in a series then that would make sense. Really, a box set of Black Redneck would rock any science fiction shelf! This is a solid 5 star effort and an enjoyable read on all levels!

What can one say other than that the title delivers what it promises. In the spirit of low-budget, Friday night, monster B-movies - "Black Redneck vs. Space Zombies" is a fun and creative story that manages to elevate itself from its niche by adding a layer of thoughtful social commentary.

I'll jump right to the elephant in the room - or rather the title. "Black Redneck" in no way trivializes or avoids its racial suggestions. "Black Redneck" is, in fact, a title of honor that represents the ability of the main character, Jefferson, to rise to a level of what is considered equality in his hometown. And racial equality is dealt with in an honest and genuine scene which I thought was the best in the whole story. It's not preachy, but simply shows how attitudes can be passed down through generations (intentionally or not) and that it's the duty of the older generation to break that chain of thought in the younger. It's not belabored and therefore effective.

As for the story, its strength lies in the characters and dialog. The characters that need to be clear and strong are, and - in the tradition of the B-movie - there is a host of supplemental characters whose only purpose is to be fodder for the monster. The dialog between the characters is natural and smooth, with unique voices for each one that is very enjoyable to read.

When the time comes for descriptive passages, the prose tends to get over saturated with similes and repetitive words. An experienced editor would help to focus and streamline those passages as well as catch the handful of typos (and make this an unqualified 5 out of 5).

However, the fun, boisterous plot and excellent character development far overshadow any weakness. If you get why I mentioned the Toxic Avenger in the title, or just like a good monster yarn, then I recommend this story.
