Comments Earthworm Gods

  • Jonathan Janz

    For Brian's fans (and you can count me squarely in that camp), be sure to read the afterword to this edition. In it Brian talks about this novel's importance not only to his mythos, but to the evolution of his craft. It's a quick piece, but it exemplifies many of the traits I value in Brian's writing: It's raw, it's real, it's emotional. As for the novel, it's the aforementioned things and more. I've read enough Keene books now that compiling a best-of list would be really difficult to do. I'm n [...]

    Satanists on surfboards. A mermaid. Giant worms and Cthulhu. And an End Time rain with two old mountain coots getting to play Beowulf. This is the good stuff. The Conqueror Worms is the second book I've read by Brian Keene (The Rising being the first), and I'm really impressed by this guy. The sheer gusto of his B-movie imagination leaves me hopeful for the future of Horror fiction. In one sense, I'm left thinking Keene is very Old School (see Giant Bug movies from the 50s), but not totally. Con [...]


  • Danger

    As far a pulp horror books go, this one is pretty much perfect. Weird and gory and tense and surprising and even (at times) emotional and funny. I loved it.


  • Adam Light

    Thrilling apocaplyptic madness from Brian Keene. This book got me so wrapped in it that I breezed through it in two days. Now I'm looking for the sequel. If you enjoy end-of-the-world survival horror stories, you can't go wrong with this one.


  • TK421

    I'm not one to normally read a Brian Keene novel (well, I have read threeI think), but when I saw the title of this one, and the fantastic campy-B-flick picture for a cover, I knew I had to read it. And, you know, it wasn't that bad. The first part of the book was a mid-post-apocalyptic tale that tells the story of how some of the characters are surviving. But Keene didn't think that a random monster book about the end of the world was enough. Enter the second half of the book. This half was str [...]


  • Chris

    Nobody Apocalypses like Brian Keene. Or as often. Whether by zombies (The Rising, City of the Dead, Dead Sea), a dark zone that appears on the edge of town (Darkness on the Edge of Town), a loud horn-like sound after which a large percentage of the population just isn’t there any more (Take the Long Way Home), giant crabs and miscellaneous other deep sea creepy creatures (Clickers 2-4), or any combination of the above, he does it better than anyone.In the first Earthworm Gods book (there are 2 [...]


  • Anthony Vacca

    Earthworm Gods is oddly slow-paced and mundane for a novel featuring never-ending storms, world-swallowing floods, black magic, a murderous mermaid and, of course, gigantic earthworms. It's clear Keene is still learning his craft at this point, and it shows in his pacing, characterization, command of tone and his dialogue. Keene admits in the afterward that this novel is dear to him because, in writing it, he was training himself to do "voice" by channeling his very fond memories of his grandfat [...]


  • Ken McKinley

    I have nothing but the highest praise for Earthworm Gods. This story captured my imagination, as well as most of my waking hours the last two days, as I poured through this thing. Pardon the pun, but I was hooked. A little history from Brian Keene found in the Afterword of this story. If you're confused, like I was, about why there is a story called Earthworm Gods AND The Conquerer Worms. According to Keene, the story was originally published in hardcover in 2005 from Delirium Books as Earthworm [...]

    "Brian Keene is the next big thing in horror."How many times have I heard that?How many times have you heard that?The Conqueror Worms is the third Keene book I've read. I enjoyed The Rising and City of the Dead. I thought they were both fun books that did some new things with the zombie genre. I thought Keene was a good writer, who showed a lot of promise.Then came The Conqueror Worms.The book is told for the most part by a mountain man who's lived long enough to see what amounts to the end of t [...]


  • Jonathan Echevarria

    I must admit that Brian Keene knows how to write a really good Post Apocalyptic story. I'm still new to the Keene Universe, up until now the only other book's I've read are The Last Zombie graphic novels and The Rising novels. I've always enjoyed the compassion mixed with the horror that exists in some of the "good" characters of his stories. In Earthworms Gods the character of Teddy is an example of what I cherish most in Keene's work. It's a good counter balance to how cruel and harsh Keene's [...]


  • Иван Величков

    Още преди да подхвана книгата бях сигурен в две неща:1. Че е една от най-силните книги на Кийн, за това предвидлияво си я оставих за след няколко от по-леките му.2. Още от заглавието, същото като на едноименната поема на По, героите ще са обречени статисти в колосална мрачна игр [...]


  • Bark

    Reading for Jare's2010 Spills & Chills Release Challenge.I haven't read a book where the main protagonist is a crabby 80 year old guy since struggling through King's Insomnia many moons ago. Fortunately, this story is much more interesting. This guy is a lone survivor (or so it seems) in a world nearly buried under water. He has the misfortune to live high up on a secluded mountain when most others have perished in the floods and he faces long days of loneliness, isolation and day after day [...]


  • ♥♡¢σσкιє♥♡ (Krystle)

    Okay, I could write a really long and detailed review of this book. I could go on and on about what an amazing and lovable character Teddy is or how Kevin was a strong and likable hero. I could give you plenty of details that included the creepy and genius decision of the author to let the entire story play out during a never ending rainstorm. And do not even get me started talking about the worms!Sure, I could write a review like that, but really there is only one thing that needs to be said ab [...]


  • Kasia

    This was my first time reading Brian Keene, and I was excited! I wanted to like this story, giant worms eating everything in their path, end of the world and nature's victory over human powerUnfortunately I felt deceived by the title and about what really happened in the book - where are the worms? They were mere filler barely getting any attention, I felt like this was a worm version of Where is Waldo, tough to spot with many pages that did not belong there.It started off interesting, I was glu [...]


  • Bandit

    This was a quick fun read. Very typical Keene, so if you're a fan like me, you'll enjoy it. Having just read an amazing post apocalyptic book, I'd have to say that this one lacked something like substance, it was very much B movie material, sort of like Tremors. Still entertaining, though. Reminded me a lot of Keene's Dead Sea. Recommended for horror and/or Keene fans.


  • Kimberly Raiser

    Incredibly vivid horror tale. I met Brian Keene recently and spoke on a panel with him at Hypericon. It was the actual first horror book I read. Incredible!!! It wasn't too gory, but kept you worried the entire time. I've recently purchased three more of his books. Stellar person as well as a writer!!!

    Choke full of lovecraftian goodness.


  • Daniel Russell

    The Keeneathon continues with his 2006 book, The Conqueror Worms. Now, when people mention Brian, they usually ask if you’ve read The Rising. The Rising is considered to be his ‘hit’, but after fellow readers have enquired about The Rising, the next one, I’ve found, is The Conqueror Worms. I thought that The Rising was okay. My preferred Keene book so far has been The Ghoul, which was reviewed earlier this month. Could Worms take the crown?Teddy, and 80 year old man living alone in West [...]


  • Chris

    In the newly released Author's Preferred version of the Brian Keene classic, the world has been deluged with unending rain and apocalyptic floodingd horrors both human and inhuman, not to be believed but very very real. Told mostly from the POV of widower Teddy Garnett, who struggles to survive alone in his West Virginia mountaintop homeuntil his best friend, Carl, shows up, soon after, survivors from horrors unleashed in washed out Baltimore. Mixing in elements of his Labyrinth mythos, Keene do [...]


  • Thee_ron_clark

    My faith in Brian Keene has returned. A few years back, I caught a bit of this book at one of Keene's readings and I just recently got around to picking it up. I should not have waited. The story is that it begins to rain one day all over the planet and never stops. The concept is that if a day of rain brings earthworms out, 40 days will bring out some really big earthworms and more.Although it gets silly in a few places, I still found this to be an enjoyable, well-written story with a lot of in [...]


  • Stephen

    Writing as a person who is not a good writer (Teddy Garnett) is the perfect method for Brian Keene. He fits into the role so flawlessly, it is hard to figure out if the words on the page are from Brian or Teddy. Maybe the book itself is a satire on Brian's poor writing skills. Perhaps starting into the book by looking at the title and cover was the wrong approach. They say you should never judge a book by its cover, but somehow, the cover describes the novel perfectly. Five giant earthworms poke [...]


  • Paulo "paper books always" Carvalho

    After reading Dead Sea I start reading this book. I still have to read The Hollow, Ghoul and Dark Hollow and the anthology the Rising (arriving this next week). The others I don't have Maybe after reading this ones I must save moneyWell this book is a homage (is it?) to Lovecraft and it's Cthulhu Mythos. That and the makeover of the Flood by God. (Of course it's also Brian Keene Mythos expanding)The story again it's in the first person point of view. Again (in a good way) it's a not typical main [...]


  • Daniel

    I read this about a week before typing this review, and in that time I've found my impression of the book improving with reflection. I was initially thrown by how quickly Keene destroys most of the known world, leaving behind a mountainside and an 80-year-old narrator who isn't about to leap into action and take out a monster of massive proportions. I expected something more gradual, such as sightings of worms of increasing size in a big city; random disappearances of minor people; then the wind [...]


  • Bill

    Some pretty solid storytelling from Brian Keene.While I did enjoy it, what I found lacking with this novel was the punch in the gut endings I've come to expect from him. Like in Ghoul and Dark Hollow, which, oddly enough, probably weren't as polished writing-wise as this one.Yet, I rate those ones higher because I simply loved how he finished them off.Note that the edition I read was Earthworm Gods. Keen's apocalyptic vision of what happens when the rain never ends. Scary monster worms! Keene's [...]


  • Amy

    I liked this book. It was a post-apocalyptic story where the world has flooded due to endless rain and giant earthworms surfaced to wreak havoc on the few remaining inhabitants. The book is split into three parts. Part I is the first person account of an old dude with a bad nicotine habit who believes he is the last remaining survivor until his best friend and neighbor finds him. The Conqueror Worms has a classic B-movie horror vibe until Part II, when the old dudes run into more survivors and w [...]


  • Mel

    This is a fun romp into what the apocalypse could be like. It hasn’t stopped raining for days and weird things are happening across the United States. (view spoiler)[ mostly involving very large earthworms and maybe a large kraken like thing (hide spoiler)] It is up to a couple of old timers to save the day. (view spoiler)[Yep…senior citizens are the heroes in this story. (hide spoiler)] Bring your galoshes, a whole lot of ammo and maybe a dry pack of smokes because you are going to need the [...]


  • Jason

    1.5 StarsLet me start by saying that I am a huge fan of Brian Keene, and I feel that he is a gifted horror writer. Unfortunately, I hated this book, it made me angry, and I was very disappointed at the ridiculous turn it took.The first half of the book is awesome. The world has ended due to non stop rain everywhere. Our main protagonist is basically an old widowed mountain man who is remembering the better days. Things get interesting when the worms show up. I really thought that this was going [...]


  • Marvin

    Brian Keene may be the king (with a small "k") of end-of-the-world novels. In The Conqueror Worms, the earth is besieged by Noah sized rains plus water monsters and worms of Lovecraftian proportion. The tale starts at full speed as narrated by 80 year old Teddy Burnett, a live-wire geriatric hero if ever I saw one. As long as he is in the foreground, the book soars. However it slows down when the narration moves to Baltimore and we are given a less-than stellar survivor tale involving surf-board [...]


  • Paris Chávez

    I think this was the book I was waiting for from Keene. I have been reading his books for a while now, and they have always been ok, but never really struck me as great. Well now, I really liked this one. It' still very Keene, his books tend to revolve around the end of the world and so on. Perhaps I loved the worm theme, and it reminded me of the crates I raise of the slimy things slithering through rotten sludge. Regardless, I loved it. I recommend it to anyone that likes these kind of things. [...]


  • Ajeje Brazov

    Reminiscenze lovecraftiane in salsa b-movie anni 80/90, con un pizzico di country e Johnny Cash, il tutto annegato in un mare di pioggia e vermoni.Di certo si parla di una situazione al limite dell'impossibile, ma con le continue piogge che hanno caratterizzato tutta l'estate appena passata, una scossa di brivido lungo la schiena l'ho avuta!"Poi chiusi gli occhi e smisi di ascoltare."
