A long time ago,I wrote a rather unfavorable review of author Bischoff's Alien novels. Mister Bischoff took the time to respond to my comments, and I was impressed to find an author who at least reads what his readers have to say. Given that, when I managed to pick up a copy of Quoth the Crow, I decided to give it a fair chance, not letting either of his Aliens books bias me. And I must admit, while slow paced, while not perfect ... I liked it. Now I have just come off a old horror kick, re-reading many classics by Poe, Lovecraft, Stoker and the like, so it was nice to see so many references to them. Also, many of my friends exist in the Goth subculture discribed in the books (where similar clothing, listen to same music, read Sandman...), which was an extra hoot. And the story is surprisingly solid, with a likable central figue in the form of William Blessing. One odd note though, while a good author, the constant mentioning of Dean Knootz distracted me, as he is not a Gothic fantasy/horror writer, though mentions of my own favourite author (Clive Barker,) sort of dispelled this distraction for me. And Mister Bischoff, if you are still out there, let me know what you think.

As a Crow die-hard fan of both the comics and the movies, I approached the book series with a little contempt. I was starting to worry that the Crow franchise was getting out of hand; but a book series?!?! Unable to resist the genre, i picked up the 1st installment of the series, "Quoth the Crow". The use of Poe literary excerpts before each chapter as a foreshadowing tool was successful. Birscoff takes risks with mixing his timelines around, creating a movie-like presence to it. The whole novel goes back and forth between flashbacks to dreams to present and into surreal "heaven" states; it's an interesting technique. The exposure of the "gothic culture" within the novel, however, was seemingly unfair and one-dimensional at times, not completely true to the lifestyle that it is. As a Crow story, it holds pretty well, staying true to the basis of the J O'Barr original, and it even challenges the power of the supernatural being in the story, which was an interesting view on the Crow. For those who love the comics/movies, this is one you would want to pick up for a different view on the Crow. If you're a Poe fan, you might enjoy this too. For those new to the whole "Crow" thing, do yourself a favor and rent the movie or pick up the graphic novel/comic series by James O'Barr. END

First, let's get things straight. Before you pick up this book, go read James O'Barrs original comic book series. If you like that, then watch the movie. If you enjoy both, pick up a collection of Edgar Allen Poe, or at least read " The Raven". If you survived all of that then pick up this book. Now you are ready. This story is a story of love and revenge. It is about a man doing something he knows is wrong but does it not for good or evil, but to bring peace to his soul. In it, David Bischoff parallels the lives of the characters to the life of Poe and his writings. His unique method of foreshadowing through use of quotations instills the excitement of knowing what will happen next, but to what extent? This in combination with the characters depth makes the book very fun to read. Finally, for all of you who were discouraged or confused by the movies( or just fans looking for a change), this book starts at the beggining of the story and works all the way through. (P.S. For a more bizzarre style, but still a good story, check out Poppy Z. Brite's "The Lazarus Heart".)
