    1. [Note: I received an advanced reader’s copy of this title from the author for review.]We join this apocalypse already in progress.It’s been several years since a massive storm decimated the world. The undead are roaming Florida, and abominations inhabit the sea. The government has largely fallen, with refugee districts under the charge of the Supply Org, a welfare agency turned gangster. At the heart of it all is smuggler Wendy Wicker, captain of the Medium Talent, who finds herself on the w [...]

    2. I cannot start a review for 'Medium Talent' without pointing out the obvious This book is weird, MAD WEIRD. And possibly a little bit insane.Witches, tongue lolling zombies, gargantuan sea monsters, time traveling fog, a talking head and Ernest Hemingway? There is more than enough weird to go around in West's take on the apocalypse but it just works. I found myself glued to my Kindle as I read through the story of Wendy Wicker and the dismal Florida Keys, even feeling as if I needed a shower aft [...]

    3. Another fantastic AW title. Medium Talent went places I never expected. The twists had their own twists and it was riveting from beginning to end. Great characters, great writing, great Scott you should read this!

    4. Keep reading.When struggling to compose a review, that was the first thing to come to mind: keep reading.This is a teasing, frustrating book, and the first read-through is like being pitched head-first into a tornado. Bits of odds and ends are flying around you, they keep smacking you on the head, and you’re trying to piece together the layout of the house this tornado has just ripped apart, while the funnel is still wiping out the whole city.There are details that pop up and keep popping up. [...]

    5. Confession time: I just finished Forbes West’s addition to the AW universe, Medium Talent, and oh, does my head hurt. West has a Hemmingway thing going on, and it’s grizzly, ugly, and stressful to read. Forget the facts, the iceberg theory of writing, the Kilimanjaro stuff, or the Spanish civil war. Hell, forget about the old guy alone in the cabin with the shotgun on his lap. Forget all that, because if you don’t, you head will hurt, too.Medium Talent is the tale of Key West survivors of [...]

    6. The main action in Medium Talent by Forbes West is set about three years after the onset of the Apocalypse Weird, though there are flashbacks to the early days of the Apocalypse as well as time travel to the days of Ernest Hemingway. Life overall seems somewhat more functional than in Texocalypse, another post-apocalypse book in the Weird universe. There is some governmental effort to maintain basic aid and order, and currency is in use. Members of various religious groups including Mormans, Cat [...]

    7. I received a free ARC copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. As with the other Apocalypse Weird books, I definitely would have purchased this book if I had not received a free copy. Although this book was a little darker, in my opinion, than the others, I have crawled through the mangroves swamps in the keys as the sun goes down, and this story fit.I did not want to put this book down, but was forced to read it in several sittings. I continue to be delighted with how each of the boo [...]

    8. I loved the first novel by Forbes West, Nighthawk at the Mission, so I had great expectations for this work in the Apocalypse Weird franchise, well I can say it surpassed them. The plot is eclectic as usual and the writing is good. I am looking forward to reading other novels in this world by him.
