Devolution by Max Brooks

August 26, 2021

I received Devolution by Max Brooks as a gift while I was on vacation. Since I had read the Zombie Survival Guide and WWZ, I was excited and almost jumped right in, but I was diving into the Wizard King series and wanted to keep at it. I love everything I have read from Max […]

Ararat by Christopher Golden

July 20, 2021

Ararat by Christopher Golden is a horror novel which became a best seller.Usually I do not read many best sellers because for the last 12 years I have been a semiprofessional book reviewer of speculative fiction.

Dead Man’s Hand, an Anthology of The Weird West was a true joy to read, at least for a man such as myself, living in the southwest and addicted to Speculative Fiction. This anthology had it all, Steampunk, Fantasy, Dark Fantasy, and I was so pleased to find several stories which were straight up Horror. […]

Camouflage by Ivy Keating and Scott Spotson

March 1, 2020

Camouflage by Ivy Keating and Scott Spotson sounded like a Horror novel at first glance, but as mentioned on the back cover, it is more of a mystery. The story focuses around a police officer named Sean and his developing love interest, Vanessa. The story takes place in a quiet town in New England, which […]

Halloween was approaching and I was looking for something Horror to give me a fix as the days grew darker and the cold set in. Luckily I found Horror For Good, A Charitable Anthology lurking like a serpent ready to strike a little terror into my evening. The whole project is an interesting idea. Somehow […]
