Secret Wars by Jim Shooter

February 21, 2018

Genre:  Super Hero Publisher:  Marvel Published: 2014 Reviewer Rating:  4.5 Stars Reviewer:  Michael D. Griffiths . . I received Marvel’s Secret Wars as a gift and let it sit a while, but during the middle of this Winter, I figured I would check it out. I have always, since I was about eight, been a […]

Obsession by Ramsey Campbell

January 22, 2018

Genre:  Horror Publisher:  Samhain Published: 1985 Reviewer Rating:  4.5 Reviewer:  Michael D. Griffiths       Obsession by Ramsey Campbell is almost a mystery as much as a Horror novel, but it is certainly the latter with a sharp bullet. Ramsey sets up the scene, but does not walk your through what you should believe […]

Version Control by Dexter Palmer

October 21, 2017

Genre:  Science Fiction Publisher:  Vintage Published: 2016 Reviewer Rating: 4.5 Stars Reviewer:  Michael D. Griffiths   Version Control by Dexter Palmer is a Science Fiction novel, heavy on the science side and low on the fantastic. The upside is the reader might learn more than a little about psychics along the way as they follow […]

September 13, 2017

Genre:  Horror Publisher:  Samhain Published: 2011 Reviewer Rating:  5 Stars Reviewer:  Michael D. Griffiths   The Sorrows by Jonathan Janz became an unexpected treat and really hit home for me because, as I read the book, my life went through many parallels with the main character, Ben, which can be a bit disturbing when reading […]

In this science fiction tale, super high tech meets a totalitarian medieval state along with various other cultures, which exist on this far-off world our hero finds himself stranded on.

Tainted Blood by Ferrel D. Moore

July 31, 2017

Genre:  Dark Fantasy Publisher:  White Cat Publications Published: 2011 Reviewer Rating:  4 Reviewer:  Michael D. Griffiths Tainted Blood by Ferrel D. Moore might be considered a horror by some, but I would place it firmly in the camp of Dark Fantasy, despite its high body count. The story has multiple POVs, but follows the plight […]

Dead Space, Liberation by Christopher Shy

July 25, 2017

Dead Space, Liberation is the third graphic novel in the Dead Space series. Titan Books has taken the Dead Space video game and made it into an impressive graphic novel. Again, the artwork of this graphic novel is mind grabbing as much as it is disturbing and a very powerful feast for the eyes. The […]
