May 6, 2023

Moonless Nocturne by Hank Schwaeble is a recently written anthology of Dark Fantasy and Horror Noir. I got this one for Christmas last year, otherwise who would think it would be possible for me to review a Horror book less than a year old? But this is not only horror. Schwaeble gets some bonus points […]

Patient Zero by Jonathan Maberry

February 27, 2023

Patient Zero by Jonathan Maberry is another classic in zombie fiction which came out before The Walking Dead influenced craze of the past decade. I first heard about Jonathan Maberry when he sent me his novel, Dead of the Night, to be reviewed over ten years ago. I enjoyed his novel a great deal and […]

Plague of the Dead by Z.A Recht

Plague of the Dead by Z.A Recht is an older, pre-zombie phenomenon novel which came out in 2006.

The Troop by Nick Cutter

November 27, 2022

A few days before Halloween I realized I was not reading a horror book and I felt this was quite remiss. I looked through my unreads and discovered I had a hidden horror book left. I thought The Troop was a science fiction soldier type of thing and just between us there are two huge […]

7 Sykos by Marsheila Rockwell and Jeffrey J. Mariotte is an exciting horror novel set in my home state of Arizona. I met Jeffrey J. Mariotte at the Tucson Comic Convention. I managed to get 7 Sykos from him there and he even autographed it for me. I tore through this book which is luckily […]

Dusk to Dusk

June 5, 2022

Here’s a piece of flash fiction I entered into a contest. Warning it is a little Woo, but is something which I experienced around August 5 2016. . . Placing down his pack with a sigh, Danial looked at his deflated tent with little enthusiasm. His hurried flight from his former home left him missing […]

The Next Missing Link

The rain stopped but the streets remained wet. Miles skirted large inky puddles while his long strides hurried him through the frigid night. He didn’t look forward to the upcoming meeting. Professor Blaine saw the end of his days looming before him and Miles feared his elder might wish to speak to him about finances […]

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. When you are a lower ranking book reviewer you tend to get more of the indie authors, and it […]
