[REVIEW] Husk – by Rachel Autumn Deering

[Spoilers Ahead] Husk tells the story of a soldier home from war, dealing with the stress of PTSD and drugs.

A story-behind-the-story. I love that! It makesContinue reading “[REVIEW] Growing Things – Paul Tremblay”

[REVIEW] Remains – by Andrew Cull

The atmosphere he sets is that of a scary movie, complete with spooks in windows, loud sounds, and crazy messages on the wall. Better yet, this story has a very meaningful base of support – ourContinue reading “[REVIEW] Remains – by Andrew Cull”

[REVIEW] To Be Devoured – by Sara Tantlinger

4.5 / 5.0 Sara Tantlinger’s debut novellette, To Be Devoured, is an unsettling and gritty story with a darkly poetic voice. Though it’s not necessarily violent, it has an extremely violent feel throughout (in the sense that there are bared teeth that continuously open wider, revealing sharpened blades). Despite a conclusion that felt a littleContinue reading “[REVIEW] To Be Devoured – by Sara Tantlinger”

So, when I was approached to read The House That Jack Built by the darkly talented Dale Robertson, I wasn’t hesitant to jump in. WeContinue reading “[REVIEW] The House That Jack Built – by Dale Robertson”
