Thrillville is the virtual headquarters for the gonzo pulp fiction of Will "the Thrill" Viharo - freelance writer, film programmer, live music booker, tiki lounge lizard, and B movie impresario. For many years, Will "the Thrill" and his wife Monica "Tiki Goddess" Cortes hosted a live cult movie cabaret called "Thrillville," featuring classic drive-in/grindhouse cinema and live burlesque acts, which still influence his work. Please check out the links on the left for more info. Cheers!

"No human being has absorbed more pulp culture and its seamy sexploitation underbelly than Will Viharo. Thankfully, his warped synapses and calloused, compulsive fingertips are able to repurpose it all and blow it back onto the page--desperate, demented, delirious, D-cupped ... and many other D words as well." --Eddie Muller, Czar of Noir

"Besides the great style, plot, and characters, what I love so much about Will Viharo's work is his willingness to really go there in his depictions of sex and violence. The dude's not shy. At all." - Mike Monson, author/publisher, All Due Respect Books

"Will Viharo has to be the most Chandleresque author I know that's not actively trying to rip off the legend's style or paradigm in his fiction. Viharo's narrative voice is thunderous and commanding. One of the best kept secrets in contemporary hardboiled fiction." - Benoit Lelievre, Dead End Follies
