[Review] – Mr. Deadman Made Me Do It – Chris Baker

Who doesn’t love a good anthology? And, friends and fiends, this is a good anthology. This delightfully gory collection centres around the figure of Mr Deadman, each short story featuring the strange character in one way or another. They all feel different, with characters from different walks of life, all with their own version ofContinue reading “[Review] – Mr. Deadman Made Me Do It – Chris Baker”

[REVIEW] The Night Crawls In – by Steve Stred

I have read a few of Steve’s books this year – including The Stranger, Jane, and The Girl Who Hid in the Trees – but I think The Night Crawls In has to be my favorite so far. This collection of drabbles (stories averaging just a couple hundred words for the most part) and poemsContinue reading “[REVIEW] The Night Crawls In – by Steve Stred”

[REVIEW] The Crow’s Gift (And Other Tales)- by Sonora Taylor

I have found these short collections to be very useful in finding new favorite authors in the indie community. If it only takes you a couple hours to check out a release, you’re more likely to give a new writer a chance you wouldn’t give if they only had long novels available for introduction. AsContinue reading “[REVIEW] The Crow’s Gift (And Other Tales)- by Sonora Taylor”

[Review] From Hell – By Alan Moore

I love graphic novels. They’re like films you can hold in your hands. You can visit them intimately whenever you like. A secret, immersive cinema all for you.  Alan Moore’s From Hell is a trip into an interesting time in history that is stranger than the fiction inspired by it. Alongside Eddie Campbell’s artwork, MooreContinue reading “[Review] From Hell – By Alan Moore”

[Review] The Bone Collector – By Jeffrey Deaver

I stumbled across The Bone Collector a few years ago and was blown away by the dynamics in the book. Reading it again this year solidifies it as a timeless story. One thing I love about this book is the fact that although we are plunged into this fast-paced battle of wits between Lincoln RhymeContinue reading “[Review] The Bone Collector – By Jeffrey Deaver”

[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. For the majority of the novella, it reads more like a drama than horror; Kevin Brooks is damaged from losing his best friend in Afghanistan, and is looking to cope with that loss and theContinue reading “[REVIEW] Husk – by Rachel Autumn Deering”

[REVIEW] Rose – By Rami Ungar

Waking in a greenhouse with no memories from the last few years isn’t the strangest thing to happen to Rose. She also discovers her skin has turned green, buds have sprouted, and roots now reach from her body. A mysterious young man introduces himself as her boyfriend, Paris, and Rose has no choice but toContinue reading “[REVIEW] Rose – By Rami Ungar”
