Cover Surreal Killer

News updates: An earlier novel in the series, The Surreal Killer, received a nice award as the Indie Book of the Day Awardee, Sept. 7, 2013.

The Surreal Killer is a gripping story that seamlessly mixes the genre of whodunit thriller and the theme of travel to exotic places to introduce the reader to the regional culture and history of the Incas while a mysterious modern-day murderer proves that we reap what we sow. This psychological thriller takes us deep into the mind of a serial killer as the suspense mounts to a shocking conclusion. The plot blends murder, intrigue, and the 20th Century history of Chile with the genesis of a serial killer.

EDGE Science Fiction and Fantasy Books Announces… FREE eBook!

June 5, 2012 – For immediate release

EDGE Science Fiction and Fantasy Publishing announced today that:

Technicolor Ultra Mall, a consumerist mall-as-dystopia end-of-the-world novel by Ryan Oakley, will be available FREE (one day only) from amazon.com on June 6th.

The novel expresses ideas similar to The Road by Cormac McCarthy and A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess, mimicking the modernistic style of John Dos Passos (brought to science fiction by the late John Brunner [The Sheep Look Up and Sands on Zanzibar]) and it is, according to one reviewer, “a strong piece of work with a lot going for it – a television feel with multiple plot lines woven together, strong world-building, vivid characters, incredibly disturbing visuals.”

Readers can download the book here: http://www.amazon.com/Technicolor-Ultra-Mall-ebook/dp/B005O54AD4/edgescienceficti

(GREAT cover!)
