In My Own Words:
Greetings visitor, welcome to my corner of Amazon.com. My name is Chadwick H. Saxelid and I am a writer.

Unleashed by C.J. Barry
Unleashed by C.J. Barry
When Lacey Garrett takes a moment to answer a message board poster's question, she has no clue that doing so will soon have her teleported to another planet. Zain Masters believed that he had been scouting a simple, out of the way world. Then a hidden laser shot his ship out of the sky. Lacey is the only person who seems to understand the strange markings on a local monument. Markings that seem to hold the key to a way out of his situation.

Lacey and Zain spend most of the novel in one… Read more

The Walking Dead Volume 1: Days Gone Bye by Robert Kirkman
Rick, a small town Kentucky police officer, awakens from a gun shot induced coma to find the world a very different, and very horrifying, place. The dead now walk and attack the far out numbered living. While he slept, the world had ended...
While the opening was a tad too close to 28 Days later for my taste (wouldn't it have been more interesting to start at minute zero and progress through the erupting zombie plague?) the story quickly grew on me and, in the absence of a fourth Romero zombie movie, it satisfies. Required reading for any zombie fan.
