This week at St. Andrews, the Fortner Writers' Forum recognized Dr. David Jack Bell, SAPC Creative Writing faculty member. Dr. Bell's recently released first novel The Condemned, has been acclaimed by the very best of the horror fiction world:
David Morrell, author of First Blood, raves:
"THE CONDEMNED gave me the tingle I felt when I read Richard Matheson's I AM LEGEND for the first time. This is a wonderful, forceful, moody book that's as palpable as it's engaging. Pay attention to David Jack Bell. This is the start of an impressive career."
We here at St. Andrews tend to agree.
