    Okay so this will be a running log as I progress through Kaiju Rising Age of Monsters Common themes so far are that all these Kaiju seem to have originated from the ocean or are ocean dwelling Oh and the illustrations for each Kaiju so far have been awesomeBig Ben and the End of the Pier Show by James Lovegrove Great start to the anthology although very similar in tone and style to Pacific Rim Probably not as short and s

    Clocking in at over 500 pages with 25 stories Kaiju Rising Age of Monsters is a somewhat daunting read Assembling that many authors to write about giant monsters is an awesome feat all on its own but to do it as a Kickstarter project is just mind boggling Tim Maruitz Nickolas Sharps are absolutely to be commended on pulling off something I honestly wasn't sure would workFor me some of the stories that worked the best wer

Monsters in film and literature now there is an exciting plot device to look at No matter how ugly the movie is or poorly written the story I do try to find a bit of excitement among them all The concept of Kaiju as a monster threat was something I came to know only post Pacific Rim and the new Godzilla So you can imagine my joy when coming across a 500 page book with short stories that only feature the giant monsters I wasn t disappointed this is one real badass collection of Kaiju storiesFor the uninitiated the word Kaiju is said to mean Strange Creature in Japanese There are monsters that rise from the sea and the ones that drop from the sky there are the ones that are malevolent and some that are neutral but they are all on a scale of size which will make a full grown T Rex run shrieking back home to hisher mommy They run rampage through our cities conventional weapons are useless against them and we only have two options perish uietly or die trying There are stories here that shadow Pacific Rim a huge Robot battling the monster and stories told from the monster s POV but what stands out are the stories of inconseuential humans desperately trying to stay alive in their own homes A detailed review of each of the stories in the book will make this an incredibly long review so here are some of my favorites Big Ben The End Of The Piershow by James Lovegrove Borrows heavily from Pacific Rim but the story of a small town businessman and how he manages to make his little business thrive following a robot vs Kaiju battle is oddly funny and had me shaking my head with a smile by the time I finished the taleThe Conversion by David Annandale The last stages of the apocalypse are here This is one of the grimmest tales in the whole collection There is also a religious touch to the story but the climax is utterly despairingThe Lighthouse Keeper of Kurohaka Island by Kane Gilmour A father and a son who travel to a deserted island as keepers of a Kaiju sized secret The best part of this tale is the backdrop and the ambience that it creates It is eerie and rather effectiveOne Last Round by Nathan Black You all know this guy the veteran of a hundred fights and skirmishes who lives somewhere in your neighborhood An utter and absolute thug but still a lovable one if someone does trouble him you elbow your way up front and say He might be a thug but he is ours so get outta here Reimagine the thug as a Kaiju battling Robot and watch him go head on with a big mean bugger on the streets This story is like watching Rocky you know he is gonna win but he is beat to pulp by the time he does win The Behemoth by Jonathan Wood What if the bigger monster was not the Kaiju but the men who drove the robots into battle In this story the Kaiju takes a backseat and just appears as another character in the backdrop It is the story of a robot pilot ambitious brash arrogant and a substance abuser A fine and dark character study Four and half stars worth of materialOf the Earth of the Sky of the Sea by Patrick M Tracy and Paul Genesse This can be called a novella for the sheer length The presence of Kaiju as spirits of nature in feudal Japan is a totally different shade of color This story is written in a very impassioned way such that it is difficult to not feel for the land and the KaijuBig Dog by Timothy W Long Another fine story length robot vs Kaiju battle This is extremely visual storytelling So much so that you can feel each punch landing and each gun getting fired While the earlier stories were about watching the battle this one is like taking part in oneNot all of the stories are good but all considered this is one kickass collection Recommended if you are a monster lover
