Vampires, werewolves, and Zombies have always been at the top of the proverbial B-movie food chain so to speak, but in Ushers, Inc. a group of teenagers give Hells finest a reason to be afraid of the dark. Abby, Zach, Tracy, and Cliff go to the same high school, work at the same movie theater, and even live together at the same home. All Abby wants is for Zach to ask her to go to the Fall Formal, but he can’t seem to take a hint about asking her. Not that she really has any extra time with school, work, and taking care of things that chomp and go bump in the night.
After stopping a zombie uprising, the teenagers are hailed as heroes. When the cops don’t know what to do about monsters, Ushers, Inc. does. Everything comes with a price and while they might be heroes to the living, the monsters might just have a plan of their own.
Ushers, Inc. is a quick, but a fun read. Full of witty one-liners and innuendos, Rusty Fischer takes his readers on a “B” rated journey in an “A” rated story. The only con to be found about this book is that it isn’t longer. This story has series potential stamped all over it and hopefully Fischer returns to these characters in the near future.
