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 […]

September 26, 2017

Genre:  Dark Fantasy Publisher:  Chizine Published: 2012 Reviewer Rating:  2 Stars Reviewer:  Michael D. Griffiths   Ninja Versus Pirate Featuring Zombies by James Marshall was published by Chizine, which has always been one of my favorite publishing houses, but if I had read this one of their novels first, I might not have ever enjoyed […]

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 […]

July 20, 2016

Published by Titan Books, originally released in 1971 Stars: 5 The Queen of Swords, by Michael Moorcock is the second book in the Corum Eternal Companion series.

Book Review of The Death House by Sarah Pinborough

July 17, 2016

Published by, Titan Books  in 2015 Stars: 4.5 Looks like my streak of reviewing the best books ever in one year is continuing. I loved The Death House even if it is a Young Adult book. I will also throw this out there. I think it is the best young adult book I have ever […]

Book Review of Reawakened, by Colleen Houck

July 10, 2016

Okay I got another YA book, but at least it wasn’t written in present tense. This one is written from a teen-aged girl’s perspective. She is also beautiful and one of the richest girls on the planet. So yes, putting myself in her shoes felt a bit awkward, but Lily is a likable gal and […]

Book Review of The Lazarus Gate, by Mark A. Latham

June 21, 2016

The Lazarus Gate, by Mark A. Latham is a beautiful thing to be holding in your greedy reader’s hands. Although the genre’s a little hard to pin down on this one. I went ahead with Science Fiction, but Steampunk would work. You could almost call it horror and its certainly a mystery. Still, one thing […]

Book Review of Warlock Holmes, by G.S. Denning

June 17, 2016

Published by Titan in 2016 Warlock Holmes, by G.S. Denning, is more of a comedy than anything else, but some very inventive action, mystery, and adventure is thrown in. A strong dose of the supernatural is also added. This helps increase the excitement and more often than not the humor of the piece. The book […]
