June 28, 2018

Genre:  Fantasy Publisher:  Xlibris Published: 2016 Reviewer Rating:  3 Stars Reviewer:  Michael D. Griffiths . . Oars of Olympus by Christopher Mac Lairn is a fantasy novel set in mythological Greece.

May 30, 2018

Genre:  Fantasy Publisher:  Random Books Published: 2018 Reviewer Rating:  5 Stars Reviewer:  Michael D. Griffiths     The Grey Bastards by Jonathan French is quite a novel. I really enjoyed this one to the point where I read the last 166 pages in one day. I doubt it hurt I am playing a Half Ork […]

April 18, 2018

Genre:  Horror Publisher:  Samhain Published: 2012 Reviewer Rating:  4.5 Reviewer:  Michael D.

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.
