Have already got some really nice Editorial Reviews on Amazon.com for my latest novel “Von Wyck: The Complete Story By Victor Holocaust”…
"While reading Randall Brooks’ new novel ‘Von Wyck: The Complete Story By Victor Holocaust’, I had to keep reminding myself that it was about a local garage band started in Brooks’ high school days, and not some world-renown big name band, and I also had to refrain a few times from going to Amazon or Google to see where I could find their albums.
Now, that to me is the power of a magnificent and talented writer!
Oh, and it’s funnier than HELL!”
"I just had the pleasure of reading author Randall Brooks’ latest opus, the satiric fictional autobiography of his band, ‘Von Wyck: The Complete Story By Victor Holocaust’, and I must say that it is one of the most scathingly funny things I’ve read in years!
For those who appreciate good satire, especially something tearing the world of heavy metal apart, you will definitely want to read this! I promise!”
Well, after reading the novel, ‘Von Wyck: The Complete Story By Victor Holocaust’, all I can say is WOW!
I’ve never been so entrenched in reading, feeling as if I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough, reeling with laughter the entire time.
And, I am also very relieved to see that even though it’s a different genre, Brooks’ trademark style is still there in spades. Everything from switching points of view, a very non-linear story structure, to a very abrupt cliff-hanger ending, it is all there. And I loved every. Single. Word.
I feel I can’t recommend this book highly enough!”

This is hands down the most insightful, blistering, scathing portrait of a rock and roll band I think I have ever read in my entire life. Finally ‘Spinal Tap’ has an equal follow-up! Everything from the band switching personnel faster than most people change clothes, and one band member who comes and goes and comes and goes - quitting and rejoining, quitting and rejoining, quitting and rejoining, to a point where the band has lost their studio, their equipment, and are in the midst of yet ANOTHER personnel change, had me literally howling!
"I love it!!!!! Great job!"
