I wrote a little something for the Diabolique website.

While living in France, and after having directed a British TV episode that resulted in him being surrounded by a yard full of chickens that went insane and dropped dead, director Samuel Fuller decided to write Brainquake, a bonkers pulp novel about a Mob bag man who finds himself on the run with a deadly dame.

“When he needed a little extra scratch, or maybe it was just because he was feeling inspired, he wrote Brainquake, a fever dream pulp novel that begins with a baby apparently murdering someone and includes, among other things, a former French Resistance fighter tormented in his dreams by the disembodied jaundiced head of Charles De Gaulle, screaming at him for being a coward.”
