Hominid by R.D. Brady

September 4, 2022

Hominid by R.D. Brady is a story about Bigfoot existing in the Pacific Northwest. About a year ago I reviewed Devolution by Max Brooks which I adored. This book is on a similar subject but takes it in a totally different direction. Where Brooks’ book is a group of humans fighting against the evil Bigfoot […]

WildernessPunk- Attitude

July 15, 2022

I’ll admit it. WildernessPunk has been a bit glum of late. I could go into why being gloomy and doomy is quite appropriate for our current slice of the moment, but I’ll save such things for a different time. Instead, I’d like to look back on WildernessPunk. In a few days it will be the […]

Darkness Wakes by Tim Waggoner

May 16, 2022

Darkness Wakes by Tim Waggoner is a horror novel set in the Midwest. I had someone recommend Waggoner to me, so I grabbed one of his older books at a used bookstore (Bookmans) on the cheap. The story revolves around Aaron who is a veterinarian going through a midlife crisis. With his kids growing into […]

When You Are Engulfed in Flames by David Sedaris

April 21, 2022

When You Are Engulfed in Flames by David Sedaris is a collection of amusing and sometimes disturbing tales from the author’s life. Sedaris is a well-known author who has explored much of our globe but always in an odd manner. This book holds about twenty such tales, and although I think he is attempting to […]

Out of the Abyss

April 13, 2022

I received Out of the Abyss as a gift from my lovely new wife. She thought it was more of a manual and less of a Dungeons and Dragons adventure scenario, but upon it being placed in my hands, you know I read it. Let me back up, I usually do not read campaign modules. […]

Ham On Rye by Charles Bukowski

February 22, 2022

Alright, before any gasps of shock or complaining starts, yes, this was my first-time reading Ham on Rye by Charles Bukowski.  I have read other works by him but give me a break, being an exclusively Speculative Fiction reviewer for twelve years left me out of the loop. I read so many mediocre books… so […]

Alternadad by Neal Pollack

September 16, 2021

I am still not sure how I ever got a copy of Alternadad by Neal Pollack but it rested on my bookcase for probably a decade before I found the time to pick it up and give it a chance. Now that I can read non-fiction again, I figured I needed to jump in and […]

The Book of the Created by Robert Boyczuk

July 12, 2021

The Book of the Created by Robert Boyczuk is the amazing third novel in the Created Series. If you have not read my recent reviews of the first two novels perhaps take a moment to bounce back on this site and check them out. Unlike many trilogies I have devoured in the past, I read […]

Druid’s Bane by Phillip Henderson

June 28, 2021

Druid’s Bane by Phillip Henderson is a fantasy novel set in a low magic feudal country. The world of Arkaelyon is similar to Europe except they believe in magic even less than the medieval Europeans did. In some respects, this novel is just an alternative world text and just barely a fantasy novel. Genre:  Fantasy […]
