Kill Radio feels like a classic Stephen King novel wrapped around full, vibrant characters and a modern mum's perspective. Downright claustrophobic and anxiety-inducing at times, the story breathlessly takes you into the occult and demonic which are made all the darker and larger by the warmth of the themes of family and support running through the work. I felt moved, and frightened, and hopeful, and angry, and heartbroken, and relieved, and enjoyed every minute of it. I suspect in time, Bolger's work will be many a reader's comfort horror read.

As a Horror publisher, I'm blessed with ample opportunities to immerse myself in tales of the occult. Hellhounds, warlocks and demonic possession are welcome tools of the trade, but a homemade radio that communicates with the denizens of Hell? There's a unique wrinkle; I'm all ears!
The real signal cutting through the noise here is Lauren Bolger's deft character work. All too often, writers lean on clever tropes at the expense of fully formed life. Not so in Kill Radio. Bolger's creations positively hum with life, rich with the song of profound existence and screaming forth from hellish speakers with crystal clarity. This is a tune you know from deep in your past, washing over you in contemporary surround sound terror.
-Matt Blairstone, publisher & founder, Tenebrous Press
Lauren Bolger finds the right frequency for horror with her absolutely frightening novel Kill Radio. Turn on, tune in and get ready to be terrified.
-Clay McLeod Chapman, author of Ghost Eaters
Bolger's Kill Radio is a throwback to those horrifying stories you heard from friends in cramped dorm rooms and those late-night 80s films you caught on local cable stations on the weekend. If you ever wondered where the voices on distant stations on your parents' car radio or the wooden set your grandfather owned, then Lauren Bolger has a terrifying answer for you. Images and scenes from here will remind readers of Bentley Little's work and John Carpenter's films. This book made me afraid to be alone in my car with the radio on!"
-Kyle Winkler, author of The Nothing That Is

Lauren Bolger has an unparalleled and utterly original imagination. Kill Radio is that rarely-seen combination of lyrical writing, breathless horror and captivating action that will leave you turning the pages long into the night. She effortlessly combines these elements with an understated wit that is a joy to read. I cannot think of any other author who can so effortlessly pull off this controlled combination of elements and Kill Radio stayed with me long after I finished. A brilliant first novel, it left me hooked on her style and eager to read more.
-Michael James, author of The Hotel trilogy
