Zack’s parents don’t approve of his best friend. They’re not too keen on his talking to himself either. But suddenly they’re dead and Zack can’t remember how it happened but it looks like he’s to blame. The mysterious Jeremy coaches teenaged Zack in how to kill and how to survive in Tim Kizer’s gruesome horror story, Sixtus, but there’s a Twilight-Zone feel to the sting in this tale that will leave readers guessing. Sixtus is a quick read, written in a smoothly detached style, very creepy, definitely gruesome, and an enjoyable treat for adults at Halloween. Disclosure: The author gave me a free ecopy of this story with his request for an honest review.

After becoming friends with a mysterious entity named Jeremy, Zack, a skinny fifteen-year-old nerd suffering from polydactyly, acquires a taste for killing.
First, he butchers his parents in their sleep. Then he cold-bloodedly rips out his schoolmate's intestines. A few days later, Zack strangles a young woman before stealing her car. And that is just a beginning.
Who--or what--is Jeremy? And what are the reasons behind this killing spree? If you think you know the answers, chances are you are wrong.
