The author makes no concessions to market forces or to the conventional etiquette of fiction The results are striking creations that defy traditional expectations. Zaenglein has created a compelling style for readers who are unafraid to venture into the twilight and explore life^-s dark and distant peripheries.
Single-title review copies of The Last Autopsy were first published in 2000. The Last Autopsy was nearly relegated to the trash after discovering that an earlier, pre-edited manuscript had been published. The decision to proceed with circulation of the unedited review copies yielded a number of unexpected surprises.
Midwest Book Review called The Last Autopsy, "a Dark Steven King Type Novel. HP Lovecraft Meets Middle Class American Values." Midwest reviewer Shelly Glodowski awarded the book five stars on Amazon.com
Hidden Mysteries soon added The Last Autopsy to its unique selections. Hidden Mysteries seldom offers fiction titles, except in rare cases where the novel is based on a true story, or the content of the novel is revealing of a foundational truth in our society.
The Last Autopsy was later chosen a Disciples Study student resource selection. Published in February 2003, The Last Autopsy & Other Inimitable Tales was listed under the New and Noteworthy section of NewPages.com, alternatives in print and media. — from the publisher

Glen Hollow is a small town in America's Heartland where life is slow and predictable until residents ... start dying. — Mystery Review, 2001.

Hidden Mysteries seldom offers fiction titles, except in rare cases ... The Last Autopsy is indeed one of the exceptions. — Hidden Mysteries

I'm glad that I had the chance to read these stories. Zaenglein certainly offers some bizarre reading on contemporary issues. While I hope that the Twilight Zone nature of these stories will not come true, I know that the real world is so bizarre in its disrespect for life that the fictional may become the reality. If that were to happen, the question then becomes: how do we prepare for such a bizarre world? — Professor Jeff Koloze
