  • "I enjoyed SNAFU: Heroes every bit as much as the original. If I had any complaint it's that, at 158 pages, it was over way too soon."

    – Frank Michaels Errington, reviewer and blogger
  • "This is an excellent concept for bringing together a particular brand within the horror genre… I will definitely be picking up more SNAFU tales."

    – Nev Murray, The Ginger Nuts of Horror
  • "Each of the stories is well handled and deftly written, approaching questions of what constitutes a monster and what constitutes a hero from vastly different directions. Each answers some of those questions; each leaves others frustratingly unanswered. But in the ambiguities inherent in each story, in the unresolved possibilities of the natural and the supernatural, lie the strengths that makes each powerful."

    – Michael R. Collings, Hellnotes
  • "SNAFU: Heroes hits hard and keeps on hitting"

Return to the widely popular SNAFU series with this set of mission-oriented novellas featuring renowned heroes!

For example, in The Hungry Dark by Joseph Nassise, Knight Commander Cade Williams and his team are in Europe, helping train a new group of recruits when reports of strange occurrences at a small village deep in Germany's Black Forest reach the Order's leaders. With the locals tied up on other matters, Echo Team is dispatched to deal with the situation.

No sooner do the men of Echo reach their destination that a terrible winter storm rolls in, stranding them in enemy territory with nothing but their wits and a handful of weapons to get them through the night.
