[Review] – The Corruption of Alston House

By John Quick I think that in order to have a good haunted house story you have to have a rich and well defined setting. I mean the haunted apartment or the haunted hotel room just don’t do the same things for me as that sprawling 4 story and a tower room do. The settingContinue reading “[Review] – The Corruption of Alston House”

[Review] – The Patience of a Dead Man

By Michael Clark I have said it time and time again: I am a setting guy. I love vivid, sprawling settings in my books. The setting is often my favorite character. Example: The Overlook, Hogwarts. This book checked that box for me in a major way. The twenty-three acre property and house that we areContinue reading “[Review] – The Patience of a Dead Man”

[Review] – Dead Woman Scorned

By Michael Clark 5 StarsBook 2 in The Patience Of A Dead Man series. This is more than a haunted house story. Hell hath no fury like Mildred Wells. It’s really a perfect melding of history, horror fantasy, and gothic horror. It takes that gorgeous, vast setting that I talked about for Book 1 andContinue reading “[Review] – Dead Woman Scorned”

[Review] – The Corruption of Alston House

By John Quick To be upfront, I am generally not a fan of haunted house stories. As such, it’s hard to please me in this subgenre.   The Corruption of Alston House took a while to build for me. You get about half way through the book before anything really happens (beyond Katherine renovating the house and sleep-painting). Normally,Continue reading “[Review] – The Corruption of Alston House”

[Review] – Reception

By Kenzie Jennings Wedding reception + cannibals!  Great premise. In my experience, wedding receptions can be so boring that I would personally welcome the presence of cannibals.  (At the very least, I would like to see one of those damn wedding DJs eaten.) If you’re into cannibal fiction, Kenzie Jennings’s debut has many of them,Continue reading “[Review] – Reception”
