    One thought on “Nukekubi”

    1. NukekubibyStephen B. PearlWhat is a Nukeubi? I guess in order to understand the story, you need to know what it is.By day, Nukekubi appear to be normal human beings. By night, however, their heads detach at the neck smoothly from their bodies and fly about independently in search of human prey. These heads attack by screaming (to increase their victims' fright), then closing in and biting.While the head is detached, the body of a Nukekubi becomes inanimate. In some legends, this serves as one of [...]

    2. To see this review and more like it check out my site ufreviews I was actually pretty interested in this book when it came across my desk for review. And the main reason why is because it involved Japan, a place where a lot of people I know have moved to and lived for quite sometime. The culture and history is very fascinating and to be honest I have only ever heard good things about the place. I have to say the concept is a pretty original one of an urban fantasy book. Most of the time when you [...]

    3. I have been wanting to read at least some work by Stephen since I first met him at Ad Astra in Toronto in 2012. When I agreed to sell his books on my table at SFContario a few weeks ago, during a quiet period I picked up and read the first few pages of Nukekubi and was immediately interested. Kindle took care of the rest.I have heard it said that this book has been compared to the Dresden Files by Jim Butcher, a comparison I admittedly found dubious. After a short time reading, however, I realiz [...]

    4. First off, this is my first review ever on this site and honestly I was never going to do one,however coming across this novel I had to. A couple of years ago, I was lucky enough to meet this talented author at fan expo in Toronto. As I was wandering around, Stephen Pearl convinced me to come and check out his booth, and honestly what reeled me in to go talk to him was Nukekubi. He first asked me if I have ever heard of a creature like Nukekubi and from then on I was sold. His description of the [...]

    5. I found Nukekubi to be a fascinating tale without any vampires or werewolves so many other writers employ in their quest to tag onto the coat tails of urban fantasy. The monster itself is not original, but the story implementation of an oriental monster is. Mr. Pearl maintained a good level of suspense and managed to weave a good plot with characters that one could relate to. I did find the first person POV distracting and noticed a few grammar and spelling mistakes, but that didn't annoy me eno [...]

    6. In this day and age it is rare for a paranormal/urban fantasy novel to be original. Stephen has done just that. There are no vampires, weres, fairies, and shifters that are your standard fare. Stephen basically reinvents the paranormal genre with his originality and his wonderful writing style.

    7. This is an awesome story and book. I am glad I met the Author at ConBravo, he is a great guy. I hope these Ray and Cathy come back for another story.
